Preparing Gutters for Winter

Gutters play a key role in keeping your home warm and dry throughput the winter. Ineffective or broken gutters cause leaks and water damage which affect the structure of your property and can lead to damp and mould inside your home.

To ensure your gutters protect your property, take the following steps before winter sets in:

Inspect the Gutter – Walk around your home and look for debris sticking out from the gutter, sagging corners, broken or missing parts and signs of leaks, such as water marks. If you notice any issues, call Zac’s Gutters for fast and reliable solutions.

Carry Out Repairs – To prevent serious damage, it’s important to repair gutters as soon as possible. At Zac’s Gutters, we undertake gutter repairs for all types of systems in Crawley, Haywards Heath and Horsham, including cast iron. If necessary, we also offer soffit, fascia and gutter replacements.

Clear and Clean – Periodic gutter cleaning is key to keeping gutters in good condition. While you can do this yourself, it’s easier, quicker and safer to call the experts at Zac’s Gutters. With a set of ladders and specialist tools, we reach up to 3 storeys and effectively clear debris before cleaning your gutters and downpipes.

This maximises capacity and water flow, preventing blockages, leaks, overflowing gutters and consequential water damage. You should arrange gutter cleaning once a year, or twice a year if you have trees around your property.

Paint Metal Gutters – If you have cast iron or painted steel gutters, make sure the paint is in good condition. The paint on these gutters acts as a protective barrier, preventing rust and structural damage. As a guide, you should repaint cast iron gutters every 5 years.

If you notice peeling paint or rust, there is likely already damage to your metal gutters. If this is the case, we carry out metal gutter repairs or replacements.

Gutter Brushes

To protect your gutters and your home year-round, we recommend a gutter brush. This is a simple and cost-effective way to keep your gutters clear and prevent blockages, leaks and pest infestations.

At Zac’s Gutters, we supply and install leading-brand Hedgehog brushes for customers in Crawley, Horsham, Haywards Heath and the neighbouring areas.

As a company committed to meeting the needs of domestic and commercial clients, we are happy to announce we now work in Burgess Hill.

What is a Gutter Brush?

A gutter brush is simply a length of wire with thousands of small polypropylene filaments sticking out of it. Imagine a large bottle brush that sits in your gutter and you’ve got a gutter brush.

Why Use a Gutter Brush?

Gutter brushes are a very low maintenance way to keep your gutters in good condition while protecting your home. They stop leaves, moss and other debris building up in your gutter and only require a hose down once a year. This minimises the need for gutter cleaning and helps prevent damage.
