Downpipes

When valuating your residential home, real estate agents will always check that the property has downpipes in excellent condition – if they are broken, cracked or loose, this will influence the eventual worth of your home.

What is a downpipe

A downpipe is part of the roof’s drainage system. It’s fixed to a building (residential and commercial) and is responsible for carrying rainwater ­– or waste water – to ground level or below the surface.

Downpipe Problems

E

Corrosion

All homes have downpipes! Many homes have downpipes that return inside the roof space and down the wall. This is where the hidden problem can be. This is the most common area of corrosion usually due to leaf obstruction.  This means water leaks directly onto your roof causing staining, brittleness, and mould to your ceiling and eaves, not to mention the potential of water running into your cavity wall.
E

Blockage

Downpipes that carry rainwater from gutters are very likely to get blocked by debris; this can cause the water to overflow and run down the walls of the property, resulting in high levels of damp. It’s essential that you have the downpipe flushed, repaired, or replaced.
E
