All this is bad news for sun worshippers but also for those with old or low-quality guttering on their homes. If you have found that your guttering has become loose or damaged due to heavy rain, then now is the time to look into replacing it.
Once the last days of summer have passed autumn and winter will be on their way, and this means that heavy rain will be replaced with harsh frost and snow, which will be hard for worn out gutters to stand.
This summer has officially been the wettest ever recorded in Britain, with a wet June leading to an even wetter July, and the showers continuing right into August. Flash floods have devastated parts of the country and in some places entire month’s worth of rain fell in just a few hours.
Speaking on behalf of Virgo Home Improvements, guttering and fascia specialists, Naieem Raheem said: “It’s been an unpleasantly wet few months and if guttering is not up to scratch homeowners may find that the walls of their property become damp. This can lead to real issues with the structural safety of a home, and can also result in the need for costly repair work. If the guttering on your home has taken a battering over the summer then now is the time to replace them with durable alternatives which are going to be able to withstand anymore downpours, as well as harsher winter conditions.”
