The most effective way of preventing a blocked downpipe is to have your roof gutter cleaned regularly.
Downpipe is the piping that drains water out of your gutters. It plays a crucial role in drainage, and if improperly installed, it can lead to property damage.
You install your downpipe along with the guttering. But downpipes are designed to work as a complete system to allow for fast and easy water drainage, directing the flow and ensuring it goes into the correct stormwater drains.
When the downpipe breaks down or is blocked, it prevents the rainwater from moving freely away from your home and roof. Water will build up in the gutters as it cannot drain away, leading to water damage on your property.
This damages the pipe itself, but it also increases the risk of water damage. If you notice signs of blockage in your downpipe, it’s best to get it immediately fixed unless you want it to take an ugly turn.
If you notice mildew and mould growth on the walls, it indicates some issue with your downpipe. The accumulation of dirt, silt, twigs and leaf litter can clog and make the water spillover. This damages the brickwork on the roof and gives rise to moulds, fungi, moisture and dampness.
Furthermore, corrosion can play a part in causing a blockage in your downpipe. Downpipes clogged with leaves and bird nests are susceptible to rust formation as they slowly decompose, weakening the pipe.
Another significant indication of a blocked downpipe is massive puddle marks on your ceilings, which forms when water from the roof leaks into your home. So, if you see any of these signs, it’s best to get professional help to prevent irreparable damage.
