UPVC Guttering & Downpipe Contractors
Guttering and downpipes are crucial components in a roofing system. They collect rainwater from the roof of your property and divert it away from the roof edge then down to the ground. UPVC guttering is a great choice due to its maintenance- free finish. It is also hard-wearing and durable to protect your home from a multitude of problems.
The gutter is one of the most important parts of the roofing system. Without it, water would build up and penetrate your roof or walls, leading to internal damp problems. If your guttering becomes damaged, blocked or isn’t working as it should do, the same issues can arise.
It’s therefore of great importance to regularly check your guttering. The best way to prevent lasting damage is to deal with small problems as soon as possible.

Gutter Cleaning and Maintenance in Hertfordshire, Essex and London
Following periods of heavy rainfall, your guttering can collect debris and water causing it to become blocked and overflow. Over time this can lead to damaged guttering resulting in major problems such as leaks. This can have a devastating and also expensive impact on your property.
The most effective way of preventing such problems is to clean your gutters at least once a year. You may be tempted to do this yourself, but why take that risk? Our expert roofers are properly equipped and trained to deal with all your guttering maintenance needs.
Poorly maintained guttering can cause damp patches, black mould and drips within your home. You’ll avoid this with our guttering maintenance services! Like all aspects of roofing, it is much easier and cheaper to spot faults early-on. So contact our team to manage small issues before they develop into a serious problem.
What Can I do if my Gutter is Damaged?
The most common sign of gutter damage is water pouring out or over the gutter. When we’re called out to inspect a gutter the first thing we’ll do is assess why your gutter is overflowing. This could be due to a gutter blockage, or the guttering may have moved such that there are gaps or it is no longer level.
Our first assessment will be to check if there is damage or blockage in your gutter. If this is the case, the repair can be very straight-forward. Another common repair that we carry out is to replace a plastic gutter section that has been leaking. Sometimes, the guttering may just be old and need replacing due to ongoing wear and tear.
In the British climate, there are wide variations in temperature. As your guttering is exposed to heat or cold, its sections can change shape, shorten or lengthen. If your guttering was not properly installed it may not have been built to cope with this. At Empire, we ensure all guttering is installed properly to cope with this, greatly reducing the need for repairs in the future.
