IT’S es­sen­tial that gut­ters are cleared of silty build-ups, plants, leaves and other de­tri­tus,” says Karl.

“Even a small build-up of mud can pre­vent wa­ter from flow­ing freely and if wa­ter can’t es­cape through the gut­ter­ing, it will only go one way – into the house, caus­ing damp.”

If you no­tice that wa­ter’s fall­ing sharply from the gut­ter when it’s rain­ing, there’s prob­a­bly a block­age there, or the gut­ter needs to be re­paired or re­placed. To stop gut­ters get­ting blocked, fit gut­ter guards, which are grates that block de­bris but still al­low rain­wa­ter to get through.
