Over time, gutters can become stained and discolored due to continual exposure to the elements. This leads to your gutters becoming unsightly, appearing dull in colour, or oxidized. High pressure washing can sometimes help, but often this won’t be enough to restore the gutters and downpipes to their original appearance.
At Gutterline, we can restore your existing gutter system, so it appears nearly-new and fresh once again. We do so using specialised chemicals to break the bonds of dirt and oxidation of the paint. This cleaning process will instantly lighten and brighten your gutters, restoring them to prime condition.
How the gutter restoration process works
Gutter cleaning has two sides to it. The most well-known service offering involves cleaning out debris from the inside of gutters. However, apart from ‘gutter flushing’, Gutterline offers clients a ‘gutter brightening’ service, which restores gutters’ appearance to their prime appearance. Again this is done using a specialized cleaning process in conjunction with specific products.
What causes gutters to discolour?
Over time dark streaks can form on your gutters, which is referred to as ‘tiger striping’. This can be caused by runoff and pollutants, which become bonded to the aluminum. Failing to perform regular maintenance to the guttering will result in fading or a total loss of colour – resulting in the gutters appearing dark in nature.
Mildew can also form, which can usually be removed with a soft wash process. Because gutters collect decaying leaves and small twigs, they become natural breeding grounds for mould and mildew. If debris is left in the channels, this can lead to water running over the gutter’s edge which causes further unsightly stains and discolouration. Mildew and mould can begin to take hold and turn the gutter dull and dark.
Gutterline’s gutter restoration service removes dark streaks and stains from gutters. Our safe products and methods will remove the stains effectively yet gently, leaving a glossy finish, without any risk of the paint surface being damaged or removed.
