National Gutter Clearance and Repair (Commercial and Industrial)
Say that 60% of flood damage to commercial office buildings is due to blocked or damaged gutters. These blockages are cause by a build up of moss, fallen leaves & branches. Also seagull nesting is a huge problem.
Gutters are designed to direct rainfall away from the outer skin of the building as well as the foundations. If your gutters don’t get a regular clean at least once a year this build up causes an overflow or they become very heavy from the excess weight causing the gutters to sag and come away from your building.
This also causes water to run down the walls, causing your walls to become damp. In some cases this may result in replacing panels, re-pointing brick work and the water can leave a huge discolouration to the outer brick work. This eventually seeps through to the inner walls causing damp spots to the plaster of the inside of offices.
