Gutters and downpipes need to withstand heavy rain and drain efficiently to prevent any water from entering the building.
The most common cause of water ingress is blocked gutters. Gutters and downpipes usually clog due to leaf litter and other debris. Gutter and downpipes that are blocked eventually erode and fall off.
Non-compliant gutters and downpipes will not drain properly during heavy rains can cause water entering a building.
Gutters and downpipes also need to be the correct size, the right gradient and be appropriately fixed to the building to drain effectively.
Box gutters, a popular gutter profile, are at a high risk of water overflow and most likely to be found non-compliant in newer buildings.
To retain insurance coverage, a well maintained and compliant roofing system is essential.
