Unfortunately, there is no type of downpipe that doesn't require regular cleaning and maintenance. Gutters in Australia are most often attached to the edge of the roof. Due to their material and method of installation, they are prone to contamination and rust. That is why they need to be checked and cleaned as often as possible. Accumulating moisture is disastrous for your downpipes. Sometimes dowppipes can be installed in such a way that they are located directly adjacent your living space. In that case, the consequences of leaks can be much higher.
But, most people simply don't have time for regular maintenance of downpipes. That is why you can contact us at any time to solve these unnecessary problems.
If you don't clean your downpiples, it's clear that organic matter will collect. It will retain water, which inevitably leads to corrosion. The formation of holes in the downpipe naturally leads to an unpleasant leak. The real problem arises during heavy rains when such downpipes can cause us actual flooding. Damage in the garden or even on the roof can be very high. Internal box gutters will create an even bigger problem; even your living room is no longer safe.
The most probable reason for the leak is the irregular maintenance of the downpipes. Another dangerous thing is improper installation. For this, you should always call professionals. You should avoid causing more problems. Believe us, this is usually a cheaper solution.
