How Long Do Downpipes & Fascia Last?
With proper care, your downpipes and fascia can last several decades. Choosing high-quality materials also prolongs the lifespan of both elements.
Keeping your downpipes and fascia clean and clear of debris, mould and other build-up ensure that they last longer and prevents sagging, cracking, and breaking.
Have a look at both your downpipes and your fascia at least once a year to make sure they are in good shape. If they need attention, give us a call for all the help you need.
How Do I Take Care Of My Downpipes & Fascia?
We recommend cleaning your downpipes and fascia at least twice per year with clean water. Make sure you clean both the inside and the outside to remove debris, dust and built up yard waste. If you have lots of trees on your property, watch your fascia and downpipes for mould and algae and clean it off right away. This deters pests and prevents damage.
What Is Gutter Overflow?
As the term suggests, gutter overflow is when rainwater does not drain away from your gutters efficiently, resulting in overflowing gutters and damage to your property.
The most common causes of gutter overflow include the buildup of debris and installing gutters at the wrong slope.
Are Overflowing Gutters A Problem?
Your gutters are important for diverting water away from your roof and into either your rainwater tank or the storm drain.
By diverting water away from your house, they prevent water seeping into your foundations and causing lasting damage.
If your gutters consistently overflow and do not pass water on through your downpipes, you’ll not only lose water otherwise destined for your rainwater tank or you may be required to have more expensive roof repairs undertaken in the future.
What Are The Signs I Need To Replace My Gutters?
Maintaining and cleaning your gutters will increase their lifespan dramatically, however, eventually they will need replacement. At O’Brien Plumbing & Roofing Port Macquarie, there are a few common signs we see that indicate you need gutter repair and replacement. These include:
- Cracks and splitting in your gutter
- Peeling paint and rusting
- Water pooling around your slab
- Water streaks directly below your gutters and downpipes
- Gutters beginning to sag or pull away from the house
