Wooden Guttering In Sheffield
There are a lot of properties still utilizing wooden gutters in Sheffield. But these days there aren't many companies like ourselves at A1 Gutterclean that specialise in their repair and installation. Over the years we've repaired and fitted a huge number of wood gutters and as such feel we are highly qualified to carry out this type of work for our clients.
If you think your timber gutters are starting to rot we'd be happy to take a look at them to ascertain whether repairs are possible. If they are the options then are to re line them with our specialist liquid coating system or to re seal any leaking guttering joints etc. Our tradesmen can sometimes even remove short rotten sections of the guttering and piece in new one's.
If you do need new gutters installing, please don't automatically assume that new wooden one's won't last as long as say uPVC or Seamless Aluminium will. With the correct paint layers applied to the top quality wooden gutters we use. Plus a thick coating of bitumen applied internally to protect the gutters "trough" they will last for years with occasional cleaning out etc.
Another important point to consider if new gutters are needed is, does the property have an older roof that may require occasional repairs. If it does, please be aware that wooden gutters are very strong and allow for much easier and safer access onto a roof than lightweight uPVC and seamless aluminium gutters do. For instance when putting ladders with a mans weight against or inside them. This in turn might mean that with wood at least, scaffolding will not be required to facilitate roofing work. Thus meaning a potentially big saving over time.
Important: Simple, relatively inexpensive cleaning of your gutters can cure those persistant nagging drips, which if left, will eventually lead to soaked brickwork and costly damage to internal plaster and decorations.
