Guttering soffits and fascias
Gutters provide your home’s waterproofing and weatherproofing so it’s essential to have the system installed correctly and regularly maintained. It’s quite common to find a build-up of dirt and water in the guttering, which can cause blockages.
The installation of guttering is also a tricky business and needs to be carried out by a fully qualified professional. The brackets and pipework need to be securely fastened to your home and the drainage needs to be correctly calculated.
Gutter installation and maintenance
As rain falls onto your house, it runs down the slopes on either side and off the edge of the roof. With gutters securely fitted, this water can be channelled down the spout and into the drain.
Without a suitable guttering system the water would simply fall off the house’s edge and could damage the foundations in the long run. Unnecessary moist would also affect the house and could seep through the walls, creating dark spots and mould.
And for similar reasons, the upkeep of gutters needs to thorough and a full clearance should be completed at least twice a year. Gutters located under trees are more likely to pick up debris and leaves, and leaving this until winter could result in water freezing.
This would have a negative effect on the guttering and could put excess strain on the brackets, which will lead to damage over time.
Excess water can also start to cause rust and any leaks could seep into the house, damaging walls and forming mould. This will just pile up the pounds you’d have to spend on repair.
With a professionally cleaned gutter:
Cut how much dirt and debris lines your drainage system
Reduce excess water which can lead to rust issues
Prevent water from seeping through the wall, causing damp patches and mould
Put less strain on your guttering and reduce the risk of extra strain

Energy Performance of Houses
Homes are given an energy score dependent on just how efficient they are and ratings are presented in the data below. This ranges from A, by far the most energy efficient, to G, the least efficient. With a higher rating you're more likely to have less expensive energy bills as more heat is going to be retained in your home. You can improve your home's efficiency with insulation such as double glazing, loft lagging or wall cavity insulation.
