Lismore Guttering & Fascia FAQ

Northern Rivers Guttering is your local gutter, fascia and roofing expert. We offer installation, maintenance and repair services to residential and commercial clients throughout the region. Here are answers to frequently asked questions about our services:

Why does my home need guttering?

You’ll want guttering if you expect your roof and interior to remain in good condition for years to come. If rainwater were left to pool around the building, mould and moisture problems can result. Gutters are vital in moving rainwater off your roof and away from your home’s foundation.

How many downpipes does my house need?

The number of downpipes is calculated based on the diameter of the pipes and the size of the roof. You can simply leave it to the team at Northern Rivers Guttering. We’ll make sure your roof and downpipes are ready to handle the rainfall you’re likely to get.

How long will it take you to install new guttering on my house?

For the average Northern Rivers home, we can complete the installation of new guttering in one day. Having replaced your old guttering, we can also dispose of it. We don’t like to leave a mess.

Single-storey homes present few, if any difficulties. For obvious reasons, multi-storey homes will take more time. More time would also be involved if your home’s fascia is in a state of disrepair.

A quick inspection by Northern Rivers Guttering will give you a clear idea of both the timeframe and the costs. Call us today for an obligation-free quote.

How soon can you start work?

In most cases, we can get cracking on your job within a week or two following the quote. In our industry, it’s commonplace for months to go by waiting for work to proceed. We’re not like that. We prioritise our customers’ concerns and aim to be ready for a quick turnaround time for all jobs we quote on.

In heavy rain, water runs over the top of the gutters. What’s that about?

This is generally caused by downpipes being unable to cope with the amount of water. We would check that they are free-flowing and also if your guttering system has enough downpipes. Should the number of downpipes be insufficient, we can install more downpipes for you.

Slotted-profile guttering can help prevent overflowing by dispersing the water as it builds up in the gutters.

There is also the possibility that the fall (angle of descent) of your guttering might need adjustment. If a section of gutter isn’t correctly aligned so that water flows into the downpipes, it will cause water to pool and overflow. And of course, we would also check that any build-up of leaves and debris is not blocking your gutters and downpipes.
