Gutter Installation and Replacement Cairns

Expert Roofing Cairns not only looks after your roofs, but we can also help with your gutters, because without gutters, a roof is not complete.

The roof protects you from sun and rain, and the gutter protects your roof, and in fact your whole house, from possible problems resulting from the water deposited on your roof.
 
We all know why there are gutters – they move the water to the downpipes. In a big downpour, and we know what a North Queensland downpour is like, the gutters sometimes can’t cope with the amount of water that lands on your roof.
 
When that is a continuing and serious situation, it is time to do something about the condition of your gutters.

There could be many reasons why the gutters cannot cope, and it needs an expert eye to find the problem, and an expert’s experience to find the solution to the problem. 

We would start by assessing the roof itself, to see if any defects in the roof could be the cause of your problems. When we’re satisfied that there is no problem with the roof, we will look at the gutters, and the downpipes.

Delaying a proper inspection will only lead to more and bigger problems in the future. Water that runs down your walls will, sooner or later, cause damage in other areas of your house. Water can seep into the trusses and roof supports, and onto your ceilings. Water that pools at your foundations can cause erosion, and worse.
 
Check out your roof. And if you don’t know what to look for, call us and we’ll check it out for you. There are occasions when a repair will do the job, but it might be necessary for the guttering to be replaced altogether. Too much rusting and other damage is difficult to fix properly. The only answer is a new guttering system.

A fascia gutter is in common use in Australia. The fascia and the gutter are installed together. There are various designs to choose from, and they are not just for their appearance. The type of weather they will have to work with, will help to determine which gutter profile is best in your situation.

There are also various types of guttering materials, and they all have their good points and not-so-good points.

Aluminium: light, rust-proof, but weak.
Galvanised steel: strong, but it isn’t rust proof. It will require maintenance.
Stainless steel: looks good, stays shiny and strong, rust-free, expensive.
Copper: most expensive, but the best because of its longevity, strength, and good looks.
Vinyl: cheap and easy to install, although may degrade after a long time in the sun.

You don’t have to make these decisions by yourself. We at Expert Roofing Cairns will advise you, and listen to your ideas and plans. Give us a call, or fill in the contact form.
