What Causes Spouting Leaks?

These types of leaks are often caused by rusted or disconnected spouting. This usually happens with age and spouting needs to be maintained and or replaced. The build up of leaves and sticks in gutters can cause blockages in spouting and down pipes causing overflow and build up of water in the gutters. Therefore, it is imperative to clear your spouting on a regular basis, and to cut back overhanging trees which can drop leaves and other rubbish into the spouting.
