Why Do They Fail?
There are many reasons that they fail. Sometimes age is an aspect, other times there are other external forces at play. Items such as roof tiles can slip, they strike your gutter parts on the way down and cause breakage. Blocked gutters also become a potential cause of failure. Leaves, twigs and any other items cause water to build up and extra weight they were not designed to carry.
In short, there are many, many reasons for failure. However, 90% of these can be stopped with the correct maintenance. Cleaning, and ensuring your roof is in good condition can extend the life of your gutters and save you a lot of money in the long run.
What Damage Does The Water Do?
Well, obviously the main aim is for the water to run down your pipes and into the drain. When this doesn’t happen, the water can and will go absolutely anywhere. The main place it starts is onto your bay windows. Although it’s safe to drink, water is one of the most destructive liquids on the planet. Enough of it can cause catastrophic damage to your house. When the rain just freely flows onto your bay windows or other brickwork, it will cause degradation. It will find a way in and start to cause even more damage.
The same is said, depending on the reason for failure. Blocked gutters often cause the water to back up and flow under your roof tiles. This will put water into the cavity of your walls or in the roof space itself. The damage can almost be unmeasurable if it’s left untreated.
