Avoid Costly Water Damage with Gutter Repair or Replacement

Unfortunately, water damage is very common and can be extremely costly. Damage can be caused by excess water leaking slowly into the structure of your home, from a storm or an excess of rain. Internal problems such as a burst pipe or broken appliance also cause water damage but are hard to predict or prepare for. But there are some things you can do to protect your home from expensive water damage. Ensuring you do any roof, gutter repair or replacement when needed will greatly reduce the risk of water damage to your home. Asnu Group of Trade can repair or replace any damaged guttering, window frames, or roof to ensure your home is watertight.

The worst part about water damage is that your building and contents insurance may not cover you. If the damage was caused by broken, warped or damaged roof or guttering they probably won’t pay out. Check out your Insurance policy so that you are aware of exactly what you are covered for.

Regardless, it is imperative to safeguard your home against water damage by doing the necessary roof, gutter repair or replacing them if needed. Not only will water weaken your structure, but it can also seep into the foundation of your home and affect its stability. These issues can be expensive to fix, especially if the structure of your house has been compromised. Plus, mould and water stains let off a dangerous bacterium that is unhealthy for you, your family and your pets.

Common signs of water damage include:

  • Mould on ceilings, walls and around window frames
  • Warping of walls, ceilings, and floors
  • Wood around the home will swell, warp or split
  • Paint or wallpaper can bubble or tear

Check Your Roof and Guttering

So, it’s worth looking up to see what condition your roof and guttering is in. The first thing to check is if the gutters are clogged with leaves and debris. If so, get them cleaned out as soon as possible. Leaves not only clutter your guttering they will eventually rot and go mouldy.

If your roof has loose or missing tiles make sure they are replaced. However, if your roof is starting to look old and worn with lots of loose tiles it might be time to get it replaced.
