Gutter Resloping

Maple Ridge, BC

The slope of the gutter is an important phenomenon in the continuous flow of water. A little mistake may cause water accumulation in the gutter line. This situation may turn into a hassle. With every shower, you will find that gutter cleaning is required again. Water stagnates in the pipe which is perilous for the corner seals. In the absence of true treatment, the problem will get more and more severe every next day.

Secondly, if the problem stays for long and water does not drift anywhere, you will feel a terrible nuisance. The offensive odour will dominate the whole atmosphere. Moss, fungus and algae will make their permanent abode in the channel and corrode the material of the gutter. This may also interrupt the function of the metal gutter.

Analysis of the problem

When you always see stagnant water in the trough after every rain, consultation with the team of So Clean is advocated. It is suitable to consult our professional team who will analyze the problem and solve it accordingly. In fact, it is not necessary that water is amassed by dint of tilt problem. You know clogged downspouts also hinder the free flow of water.

There are a couple of signs which tell you the exact problem. If you see the water in the channel is not moving and grits and sand are also staying all through the line, and not moving at all, you should be ready for gutter resloping. It is actually the problem with the tilt of the pipe that water stays in the pipe and does not flow down the downspouts.

Pitch of the Gutter

This is not easy to check the problem of pitch with the naked eye. According to the technicians, for every twenty feet of the gutter, the difference in the height of the downspout from the other end should be one centimetre. With the naked eye, it is nearly impossible to judge the difference. Obviously, some scientific tools are needed to measure the exact height.

So Clean uses an inclinometer and other tools to detect the difference in the height of the spout on either side of the fascia. These tools are also used in regular maintenance. The renovation project remains incomplete without these tools. By using these instruments, we come to know the difference in the height of the spout and now we are ready to tackle the real problem of the gutter system.

However, a non-technical method is also used to see whether the problem is really with the incline of the gutter. You know grit moves with the flow of water. If grit is collected at the ends, it means the problem is not with the slope. Rather, it is a problem of the drainage system. If the grit spreads all along the channel and is not moving with the movement of the water, it is exactly the problem of sloping.

Solving the Problem

After finding the real problem we start working on the issue and use the best suitable treatment. For gutter resloping, we need to unfix all the screws of the gutter line and dislodge it from the roof. Then by using an inclinometer and a long line, we chalk out the line where the gutter will be fixed now. We will also fix the downspouts on either side of the roof on the drawn lines.

For fixing the downspouts, we take care that the height must not vary even equal to a fraction of a millimetre. If the length of the fascia is more than twenty feet then it is better to use downspouts on both sides of the roof. In this case, the highest point of the slope of the gutter channel will be the centre of the fascia. In this way, the slope will decline from the centre to either side of the roof.

Re-Fixing the gutter
After chalking the line on the fascia of the roof, the brackets and the trough are fixed with the screws. You need to take care of the position of the trough. It must touch the downspout accurately. After fixing, you may check the working of the trough by draining water. If water flows at a good speed, without leaving debris back, then be comfortable. The job is done! Gutter resloping remains a crucial problem all the time. To secure the slope for a longer time we need to fix the screws properly and at the proper distance. So Clean ensures that no screw remains faulty because sometimes unfixing a single screw causes the whole line to leave its place on the fascia and make the situation serious.

James and Tom pressure washed our home the other day and we're very pleased with every aspect of the job. They showed up on time as promised and ensured that we were happy before they left. We'll definitely be calling upon them again in the future. It was a pleasure to have you come and make our home 'So Clean'. Thank you both very much for a job well done!

Had So Clean out to clean our gutters and some windows . I got two quotes, theirs was slightly lower than the other one and the other one didn't even cover the whole job. So Clean did the windows inside and out, took the screens out and cleaned them, then replaced them for me. Recommend them and will get them again.
