Preparing for the storm season by cleaning your gutters
When the storm season arrives on the Sunshine Coast, we experience very heavy rainfall and severe tropical storms that can produce strong damaging winds and flooding rain.
The Wet Season
Homes need to be adequately prepared for the potential impacts of the coming storm season. When the rains start to pound, the entire roofing system takes on a lot of weight as well as wind load stress. Rainfall on the roof needs to be directed towards drainage away from the house via the gutters, valleys and flashings. This helps protect the exterior walls, windows, doors, and foundations from water damage and erosion.
During the dry seasons or droughts, strong winds and leaf drop result in a lot of debris such as dry leaves and dirt collecting in your gutters and valleys which builds up over time. If the gutters are not cleaned and maintained regularly, they become blocked and this can have a devastating impact on your property. Blocked and clogged gutters result in water flowing over the front and rear of the gutters, which may cause severe damage to your foundations, exterior walls and very often inside your property. This damage from blocked gutters is often expensive and can cost homeowners tens of thousands of dollars in repairs.
Most insurance companies will reject claims based on poor maintenance. Check the fine print, and don’t get caught out. The cheapest form of insurance is regular maintenance.
