We got a phone call from a customer in Ipswich asking us to have a look at her roof leaks. When we got there we found trees growing out of the down pipes and in the gutters. The ferns and trees had blocked the water flow; this caused the water to run back over the rear of the gutter and into the roof cavity.
Damage to the ceiling was extensive in the lower section of the house. Luckily insurance covered the damage inside but not the cause (blocked gutters) as this is deemed lack of maintenance. We cleaned the debris from the gutters but the down pipes were very hard to unblock as the roots were meters long.
