Guttering, Downpipes and Metal Fascia
Poor guttering is the main cause of water problems in the home or office and can be as big of a problem as leaking tiles! Sydney and its surrounding regional centres can experience extremely heavy rain and unless you have very well designed and installed guttering, you may have big problems with water disposal.
Overflowing gutters due to blockages, not enough downpipes, poor fall and simply too larger catchment area for the size of your gutters can create a very expensive mess through water ingress. Box gutters are the worst offenders and unless they have been installed correctly with sufficient sumps and overflows they are sure to fail and nearly always causes damage to the inside of your home or premises.
Eave gutters are the most common type of gutters on homes and in theory, as they are on the outside edge of your roof they should not cause too much damage when they overflow. However, if they have not been installed correctly they can also cause significant damage as the water can get into the eave or into the wall. Sometimes this shows up as rising damp or even causes problems with the foundations of the home.
At AusStyle Roofing we take a lot of care in our guttering and being Licensed Roof Plumbers we are able to work out the flow rates and the requirements of your gutters. Down pipes should be based on the 1:100 rain fall for your exact area.
