Homes and all its inner and outer parts must be maintained on a regular basis. If this is not working, the house collapses. It’s much easier to solve a problem that has just appeared than to repair all damages. In the case of heavy rain and snow, unexpected problems with the roof, gutter, and pipes in the house and outside the house can occur. If you have problems with the pipes here is a link for more information, and in this article, we will tell you how to clean the gutter and repair the roof.
Cleaning the gutter
If your gutters are in an accessible place and you can reach them with ladders or from the terrace, you can do the job yourself, but if they are too high and in places difficult to reach, you will need to seek the help of professionals. If you can reach your gutter, the cleaning steps are as follows:
Wait for warmer days, in order to make the dirt in the gut dried, when it is wet it is complicated to remove it. Place the ladder on a solid and flat surface. Hang two bins on the ladder. In one, you’ll put garbage out of the gutter, and put the tool in the other. When you remove garbage, wash the gutter with water. Get a waterproof extension for a regular garden hose or use a mini wash. As the mini wash is heavy and sloppy, there are special long tips that are at the top rounded and serve only to wash the gutter.
If the water does not flow properly, purify the gutters with the cord or try to push the garden hose until you break through the clogging. If the water is still retained, check that the gutters have a corresponding drop. The gutter should “hang” about 1 cm every 3 meters, towards the drainage gutter. If gutters are released on joints, you can easily solve this problem by siliconizing the joints inside the gutter.
Repair of the roofing
There are two types of roof repairs. The first is remediation, which refers only to partial works and changes in roof tiles, and the second is the reconstruction, which refers to the change of the entire roofing. Both in one and the other case, the job has to be left to the experts. It is dangerous to self-indulge in the replacement of tiles or any other work on the roof, as errors in performance will result in additional and unnecessary financial expenditures.
Only qualified persons will be able to correctly assess whether the static of the load-bearing structure of the roof is all right, as well as have a real insight into the state of the wooden beams. It should be noted that, if your roof has harmful asbestos plates, you must replace them urgently.
Many companies are involved in the campaign of dismantling of salon boards, which are supported by the citizens, and additional discounts can be made for even more favorable purchase of new roof.
