While choosing a new profile for your gutter, you need to keep in mind what problems were caused by the old gutter that you definitely want to prevent this time after its installation.

Listed below are a few common gutter problems which you’ll never need to deal with again by choosing the right gutter profile.

Problem:

Do the gutters overflow all the time in heavy rains, even when they are clean?

Solution:

The obvious reason for the clean but overflowing gutters is the carrying capacity of these gutters which is lesser that the volume of water passing through it. A gutter with a higher volume water carrying capacity will help eradicate this problem, mainly the Half Moon and Smooth line profiles which allow more access to the water to flow quickly than the box shaped profiles.

Problem:

Are the leaves and twigs falling from deciduous trees around your home blocking gutters and downpipes?

Solution:

Installing the half round profile gutter is the right choice for this problem as its shape tends to be self-cleaning. The brackets of this gutter are on the outside and there are no angles for the debris to get stuck inside so it is very easy to clean the thoroughly.

Problem:

Is the water flowing back onto your ceiling causing flooding and damage to your roof and walls?

Solution:

The damage to your interior by water is a severe problem and needs to be taken care of permanently. A gutter with more capacity of draining water than your existing profile will make a visible difference. An added layer of protection can be obtained by fitting a slotted gutter, which overflows out the face of the gutter once the level of water reaches the level of the slots.

Problem:

Is there hidden damage to fascias and the ends of trusses because of the water being collected behind the guttering?
