My oh my, how we've cleared some spouting this season. In fact spouting clearing has been so prevalent, it's crossed from being a noun to a verb: "what's happening today Craig?" "spouting".
But this is a good thing. Clearing your spouting is probably the most fundamental piece of home maintenance there is to be done. Nice, clear, efficiently running spouting is what keeps the water running away down the downpipes and not back into the roof cavity of your home. Believe me, it happens. In fact I saw it just yesterday.
This picture is what we found earlier in the week. This is a relatively clear section too. We found:
- silver birch
- london plane
- gorse (!!)
- and various grasses
So clear your spouting people! And if you don't feel so inclined yourself, give us a call on 0800 647 336 and we'll come and clear it for you.
Spouting or guttering (if you prefer that term) clearing is the cheapest bit of high-value property maintenance you'll do this winter.
