Industrial and commercial gutters should be inspected at least once a year and any time after a heavy storm or downpour of rain, and only checked by a qualified person to do so. A qualified professional will know what they are looking for in terms of current issues in addition to spotting any potential problems.
Checking gutters regularly to make sure they are free from any debris is vitally important to maintaining a fully functioning guttering system. It is not uncommon for gutters to get blocked with leaves and other debris, especially in the autumn and winter months. Dealing with a problem before it causes damage to your guttering system is so important.
If you think your gutter is currently blocked or damaged, Profile Roofing will be able to refurbish and provide your business with a fully functioning guttering system to make it good as new.
Profile Roofing can offer annual gutter cleaning contracts or one off cleans to industrial or commercial properties within the UK.
Regular gutter cleaning can reduce the risk of damage to properties and their contents. Gutters that are blocked with debris do not flow freely and in some cases become blocked up completely.
This in turn leads to a back-up and overflow of water, causing water damage to the internal and external parts of properties, such as stock, machinery and furniture, as well as electrical and communication equipment. To prevent damage to buildings and their contents it is prudent to undertake an annual gutter clean.
Plygene Gutterliner is one of the solutions that Profile Roofing offers for the refurbishment of corroded gutters. The liner is a purpose made profiled plygene liner, and provides a much more economical alternative to the replacement of gutters.
The liner prevents leaking, easily, efficiently and cost effectively, and comes with a manufacturer’s 25-year guarantee and BBA Certification. The liners are pliable enough to mould to any gutter profile and will tolerate changes in temperatures and building movement, without splitting or cracking, thus creating a totally sealed, fully waterproof ‘gutter within a gutter’ without the requirement for any structural work.
The vast majority of industrial and commercial gutters are manufactured from galvanised steel which are bolted or riveted together at 3 metre intervals and sealed with mastic. Over time the joint sealant will degrade and leaks will then occur, but by cleaning and coating the joints, this problem can be remedied.
Once galvanised gutters have eroded and corrosion appears there are no guaranteed products available that provide a long term solution and therefore replacement gutters are recommended.
Profile Roofing provides a full supply and fit service for all galvanised steel and plastisol gutter replacements and all associated downpipes and other fittings required.
