With our experience as a roofing contractor, we understand the value that gutter cleaning can bring to your roofing system. However, not everyone appreciates the importance of keeping your guttering clear. Here, we would like to cover some reasons to hire a local roofing company like us to clean your gutters.


Water Damage

When it comes to domestic and commercial roof repairs, especially flat roof repairs, water damage is a common culprit. Whenever water can’t effectively drain away from your roofing system due to problems and blockages in your guttering, it can cause the guttering itself to be damaged, as well as other roofing components. It can even enter into your Ilkley property. To keep your pitched and flat roofs in the best condition, keep an eye out for standing water pooling in your gutters or on your roof.


Beware of Pests

When you have a new roof installed with shiny new gutters and fascia installations, your roof is unlikely to attract any wildlife to it. However, as time passes and your new roofing installation becomes less fresh, debris can clog up your gutters. This invites pests and rodents to make your roof their new home, exposing you and your family to potentially serious health hazards and associated damages of pest infestations.

Fascia Damage

As a roofing contractor that offers various services for gutters, fascias and soffits, we need to note the impact of clogged gutters on fascia installations. As your gutters become heavy due to the blockage, they can fall off and break your fascia boards as a result, along with other damages. While as a provider of domestic and commercial roofing, we can provide effective repairs for fascias and all kinds of pitched and flat roofs, roof repairs or a new roof will be more expensive than a simple gutter clean.

The above points are just a selection of issues that you could face if you don’t regularly clear your gutters. If you live in and around Ilkley and would like a professional roofing contractor like Britannia Building & Roofing to take care of your guttering for you, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
