Check Rainwater Goods

Check Rainwater Goods During or Soon After Rainfall: It’s crucial to inspect and maintain the rainwater goods in a building during or shortly after a rain shower. This includes:

  1. Clearing Gutters: Ensure that gutters are clear of debris to allow free flow of water.
  2. Inspecting Flashing and Bitumen Flat Roofs: Look for defects on the flashing and on bitumen flat roofs that could lead to water leakage.
  3. Identifying Ponding and Pooling: Check for areas where water is accumulating and not draining properly.
  4. Correcting Defects: Address any issues found during the inspection, including fixing failing rainwater goods and roof dips.

Taking these steps is essential to prevent water accumulation and ingress, which in turn helps in managing dampness and protecting the structural integrity of the building.
