Interline Roofing Ballarat - Guttering

Gutters can be made from several different materials including copper, zinc aluminium alloys, Zincalume and Colorbond steel. Which material is most suited to your roof is best determined by Interline Roofing Ballarat, as some materials are incompatible with one another.

There are several different types of gutters.
Some are briefly outlined below:
   
  • Quad gutters –
    are adaptable and suit colonial and cottage-style homes while also being suitable for new home construction. It comes in two sizes – 115mm and 125mm.
  • Square fronted gutters –
    are designed to hide the ends of roof sheets and have slots in them to help the water overflow freely in heavy rain without entering the roof space.
  • Smoothline gutters –
    are similar to half round gutters but they have a flat back and are fixed using internal brackets.
  • Half round gutters –
    as there are no square corners, half round gutters do not collect as much debris as other gutter types. They also empty quicker than many other gutters due to a larger water-carrying capacity. Half round gutters suit Spanish, Tuscan and modern homes.

Roof Plumbing
   
All of your guttering should be installed by a fully trained and accredited roofing professional such as Interline Roofing Ballarat. Having the correct roof plumbing will ensure that water will flow off your roof correctly in even the heaviest of rainfall, or if you have opted for a water tank, that water catchment is maximised. Interline Roofing will take the size, pitch and material of your roof into account when designing the appropriate water catchment or stormwater drainage system and also when selecting the guttering material as certain materials may be incompatible with your roof.
     
Gutter Guards
   
Using a gutter guard is vital as they:
  • stop leaves, twigs and other debris from blocking your gutters and downpipes
  • stops birds, possums and vermin from entering your roof space
  • reduce the risk of embers from bushfires entering your gutters and roof space

A professional such as a roof plumber, handyman or roofing specialist should install gutter guards. They are available in steel or plastic types and what you will need is dependent on the area that you live in. Bushfire-prone areas should opt for steel. Whichever type of gutter guard you choose, ensure that it complies with Australian Standards.

Gutter Cleaning
   
It is important to get your gutters periodically cleaned by a professional as cleaning:
  • reduces the chances of fire damage occurring
  • prevents water buildup from occurring and causing serious damage to ceilings and other roof structures
  • extends the life of your gutter
  • stops insects from breeding, especially mosquitoes

A professional will also be able to identify any current or potential problems with your gutters when they are cleaning them and this will allow you to get these fixed before serious damage is caused.
