My own gutters are overflowing

Recommended Posts

Torrential rain has caused my own guttering to overflow this morning as could not handle the amount of rainfall the sky decided to dump on my house in 20 mins. Mind you it doesn't help as is shared guttering so the downpipes have to take the water away from next door roof too.

 

So just goes to show even having clear free flowing downpipes & gutters sometimes they can still overflow. :rolleyes:

I love it when we get a downpour as the phone seems to never stop ringing.

 

So many people just don't think about their house downpipes & guttering until they start overflowing. Then when going out to check & clear them I find they are rammed soiled with crud & sods.

Speaking of which some are near impossible to do due without the right kit like this one for instance.

I use google & bing maps quite a lot to get an idea what access etc is like before going out to take a look if need be that is.

I normally ask a few questions first so know roughly where the house is before trying to find it on the map street view. Sometimes I'm still talking to the customer on the phone whilst having a look too.
