Autumn Leaves

clogged-up gutters?
Good news…you don’t have to let the autumn leaves wreak havoc with your property!!
True Shine Windows, specialist cleaners of windows and conservatories, also help with the maintenance of gutters in all types of residential and commercial buildings in Essex and surrounding areas.

Guttering directs rainfall away from a building’s structure to protect its exterior from water damage.

Overflowing water from clogged-up gutters soaks through exterior walls causing them to become damp and damaged. Say hello to damp in your rooms, mould, peeling paint and unsightly stains and crumbling bricks, plaster and mortar. Mould can also be a serious health hazard to children and pets.

If left to build up, leaves become a mushy compost helping small plants and moss take hold, which then retain more water, leading to further damage. Gutters may eventually break away from the fascias because of the additional weight.

Well-maintained gutters are vital and should be cleaned and maintained regularly, ideally once a year.
We carry out our work from the ground using our specialist equipment which helps keep the cost down. Call David or Charmaine on 01376 572046 or 07957 618322 for free quotation.
