Gutter and Downpipe Replacement FAQs
Ensure you know everything you can with our gutter and downpipe replacement frequently asked questions. If you have more questions call us on 1300 830 956.
We always talk about the importance of gutter cleans, but can often forget to touch on gutter replacement. Eventually gutters and downpipes corrode and need to be replaced and this can happen prematurely if they are not kept clean. The build-up of debris in the gutter retains moisture and accelerates the corrosion process, so we recommend annual to bi-annual cleans which can double or triple the life of your gutters.
There are some key signs to look out for that indicate a replacement may be necessary
Gutter and Downpipe Replacement – 7 Signs Your Roof Needs Replacing
- Gaps & Cracks in the roof
- Standing water in your gutter
- Sagging gutters
- Peeling paint
- Visible water damage marks
- Overflowing water
At Gallant we recommend Colourbond metals for any gutter and downpipe replacement for a number of reasons; They not only come in a large colour range, but now with the introduction of Matte colours, they look great and last much longer than standard metal gutters. New plumbing laws mean the installation of new gutters need to provide an overflow relief system.
This means in torrential rains or when there is a blocked downpipe, rainwater can overflow safely to the outside and not into the building structure causing potential damage and costly expenses. We also provide a plumbing certificate of compliance to ensure you’re getting the highest level of workmanship and using only the highest quality materials.
