Here in Auckland, we’re not strangers when it comes to rainfall and wild weather conditions.

Storms and heavy rain can strike at any time and have the potential to leave behind extensive damage if the right precautions haven’t been taken.

Don’t be left to clean up an unruly mess after the next storm hits—ensure your property is prepared to withstand even the heaviest rainfall and strongest winds.

The expert team at Custom Fascia & Spouting has put together a guide on some simple things to consider when preparing your property for storms and heavy rainfall:

1. Gutters, Downpipes & Drains

Making sure your gutters, downpipes and drains are clean and free from any debris is extremely important when preparing your property for heavy rainfall. If there are any blockages present, water is far more likely to overflow under the eaves and potentially leak into the roof cavity.

Prevent future blockages by regularly checking your gutters and clearing them of leaves and other debris. If you live in an area prone to storms and heavy rainfall, checking your gutters is extremely important.

2. Updating & Replacing Rainwater Systems

If you have an older property, your rainwater system may be in need of an update. At Custom Fascia & Spouting, we specialise in a complete range of aluminium, titanium zinc and stainless steel rainwater systems—all providing both durability and style.

For your peace of mind, our copper continuous spouting and guttering also comes with a 20 year warranty against corrosion. When building a new property, the best way to prevent future issues with your guttering and spouting is by investing in a good quality rainwater system from the start.

3. Other Things To Consider: Roofing & Tidying Up

Your roof should be regularly checked to identify any damages such as broken, cracked and misplaced tiles. It’s important to keep your roof clean because dirt build up can sometimes cause blockages to drainage channels underneath the tiling.

Working on your roof can be dangerous, this is why we recommend you seek the assistance of a professional to inspect and conduct any necessary roofing repairs.

Strong winds are capable of moving even heavy objects like outdoor furniture. This is why it’s so important to ensure your front and backyard are clean and tidy prior to the next storm hitting. Firstly, secure any objects that might blow away including playground equipment and trampolines.

It’s also important to have any large trees or dangerous branches trimmed back that could be at risk of falling during a storm. A qualified arborist will help you identify any safety hazards that require attention.
