When a roofing system fails on a commercial and industrial building, one of the main reasons is down to the roof guttering. This is largely down to the fact that people neglect their guttering, become lax with roof maintenance and due to gutter joint failure.
A lot of existing gutter systems are unable to cope with the demands that are put upon them, for example heavy rainfall, and additional rainwater outlets may be required.
It’s not uncommon for the UK to receive a month’s worth of rainfall in just one day which can be an extremely challenging scenario for guttering system, especially if they are very old or haven’t been properly maintained.
Many commercial building owners focus on their roofing systems only and neglect to check their guttering systems. But leaks and weaknesses can occur within guttering systems which can compromise your entire building.
Leaving your guttering to deteriorate might save you money in the short term, but the damage it could cause to the exterior and interior of your commercial building will end up costing you more in the long run. Water damage to your building and its contents can be extremely costly and can even mean you have to close your company or business for a period of time to deal with the damage.
It’s important to also have your gutters regularly cleaned. Clogged gutters can lead to stagnant water pooling which allows for weeds and grasses to form, as well as increasing your chance of leaks. When you have slow drainage, you can also get accelerated corrosion of the waterline.
