Rotten timbers needing replacement

Timber rotted right through due to moisture damage

Maintenance is key!

Timbers showing severe fungal rot

Timbers showing severe fungal rot

This is the aftermath of a slightly leaking/rusted gutter in a property I am working on in Glenelg, South Australia.

After years of turning a blind eye to a slightly leaking gutter, problems did eventually arise for these residential home owners and unfortunately it was much worse than a roof gutter.

If the problematic gutter was replaced earlier it would have been a cheap problem to fix. Instead now, not only are we replacing the defective gutter but we are also replacing timber fascias which have severe fungal rot in them. Rectifying this issue will require a substantially greater amount of materials and is also very labour intensive compared to what it could have been.

Preventative maintenance is key.
