IT MAY BE TIME TO CHANGE OVER THOSE OLD RUSTY OR BLOCKED DOWNPIPES

DOWNPIPES RUSTED & LEAKING?

IT MAY BE TIME TO UPGRADE

Downpipes are often the most overlooked item in your guttering system. But without functional downpipes you can have water backing up inside your home. This can cause major structural damage and lead to costly future repairs.

Downpipes are not a family heirloom. And they certainly don’t look better with time. More importantly, the longer you wait, the more costly your future repairs.

DOWNPIPE replacement Brisbane

UPGRADE & SAVE ON COSTLY HOME REPAIRS

The majority of homeowners have an insufficient number of downpipes to cope with the extreme amounts of rainfall in Queensland. And most homes were built prior to roofing regulations and requirements that outline how many downpipes are required.

To comply with current code, we usually need to install additional downpipes to support your gutters. This comes with challenges due to the terrain, design and the lack of underground stormwater. But after 50 years in the industry, we have a range of innovative solutions to meet your specific requirements.

Reason to upgrade your downpipes:

  • Enhanced Water Flow: New downpipes ensure a smooth and efficient flow of rainwater, preventing any blockages or obstructions caused by rust or leaks in the old system.
  • Prevention of Water Damage: Leaky or rusted downpipes can lead to water accumulation around your foundation, causing potential structural damage. Replacing them eliminates this risk and protects your home from water-related issues.
  • Protection Against Soil Erosion: Faulty downpipes can result in water pooling around the base of your home, leading to soil erosion. New, leak-free downpipes channel water away from the foundation, preserving the integrity of your soil.
  • Maintenance of Exterior Aesthetics: Rusty or leaking downpipes can significantly impact the appearance of your home. By installing new downpipes, you can restore the visual appeal of your property and maintain its overall curb appeal.
  • Preservation of Siding and Exterior Walls: Leaking downpipes can cause water to run down your exterior walls, potentially damaging the siding or paint. New downpipes prevent water from splashing onto these surfaces, prolonging their lifespan.
  • Reduced Maintenance Efforts: New downpipes require less maintenance compared to old, rusted, or leaky ones. By replacing them, you can save time and effort that would otherwise be spent on frequent repairs or cleaning.

keep the water out your house

Water damage caused by cracked downpipes can be detrimental to a house in several ways. Firstly, when downpipes develop cracks or fractures, water can seep through these openings and infiltrate the surrounding areas. This can lead to moisture penetration into the walls, causing the paint to peel, wallpaper to bubble, and plaster to deteriorate. Over time, the water can reach the structural elements of the house, such as the wooden framework, which can weaken and rot.

If water is not properly directed away from the foundation due to the cracked downpipes, it can accumulate near the base of the house. This can result in the saturation of the soil and increase the hydrostatic pressure against the foundation walls. As a consequence, the foundation may crack or shift, leading to structural instability and potential costly repairs.

Another issue arising from cracked downpipes is the risk of water pooling on the roof or overflowing from the gutter system. This excess water can seep beneath the roof causing leakage and compromising the integrity of the roof. If left unaddressed, this can lead to roof decay, mould growth, and even ceiling damage inside the house.

QUESTIONS? WE’VE GOT THE ANSWERS

We find most properties have insufficient downpipes. This means we will need to install additional downpipes so your roof and gutters function at their best.

90% of the time we install PVC downpipes. We can install metal square downpipes and also metal round downpipes upon request, at an additional cost.

It’s hard to confirm prior to installation if you will need additional downpipes unless it’s visibly obvious. When assessing whether to add more downpipes, we check the existing fascias to see if they are level. We then evaluate if the correct fall can be made into your existing downpipes without the guttering coming away from the fascias. After that assessment, we can confirm whether an extra outlet is required.

If we are replacing your guttering, we have an opportunity to feed all the rainwater into your tanks. We can even establish new rainwater connections in your preferred position.

The price of downpipes really depends on the accessibility for our tradesmen. On average you would need to budget $100 for each downpipe in 90mm PVC supply and installed.

Being roofers for over three generations means that checking the weather forecast has become a ritual. It’s the first thing we do when we get up. And it’s the last thing we do before going to bed. 

Unfortunately, due to the very nature of your gutters being a rain harvesting system it becomes impossible for us to complete your gutter installation in the rain as we cannot seal the joints properly, which leads to a sub-standard installation. Therefore, our process is to let you know that our technicians will not be attending the property and we will arrange for them to be there on the following day weather permitting.
