Prevent Gutter Flooding By Following These Simple Tips
What is gutter flooding?
Most conventional guttering has insufficient fall, which causes flooding. When there’s heavy rain, it often overflows because the water does not drain quick enough.
With the vast majority of conventional guttering, the back is lower than the front, which leads to the water flowing into the eaves and down the cavity of the wall. This is called gutter flooding, which can cause major damage to your home.
Here are some ways you can prevent your gutters from flooding
- Clean your gutters regularly to stop leaves and debris from causing any blockage.
- Prevent your gutters from flooding by making sure your gutters drain properly.
- Make sure your gutters are installed properly. Before the rainy season, inspect your gutters to see if it is properly installed.
- Install leaf guards on your gutters to prevent leaves and debris from causing gutter flooding.
EASY FALL® Guttering – The Effective Water Collector
Our EASY FALL® Leaf & Ember Guard has been designed with profiles to suit various roof types, so that the back is always higher than the front. This means that the rainwater does not spill over into the eaves and roof — eliminating gutter flooding. It can also be fitted to all types of existing standard gutters, so whatever type you have installed in your home, it’s bound to fit.
Featuring a shallow-dish effect, it allows for most leaves to be dried out and blown away by the action of the sun and wind, especially if there is good exposure to these elements. Depending on the aspect of your house and the vicinity of trees, the occasional removal of leaves with a leaf blower or hose may be required. In the heaviest of rainfall, rainwater is continually flushing through the PVC channel to the downpipes and drainage system, thus minimising the need for overall gutter maintenance.
EASY FALL® Guttering offers an innovative range of products to solve problems like this, which we can guarantee to solve any gutter flooding problem.
