Blocked guttering is one of those ‘out of sight out of mind’ type things that is until water begins to pour down the wall of your house or damp patches appear on the ceiling.
Most household insurance policies contain standard terms and conditions requiring the household to keep the property in good repair. If you don’t do this then your insurance company may try and avoid payment if you make a claim for damage to the fabric of your home for which you are partly responsible. They are perfectly within their rights to do this. Your claim could be reduced in terms of payout or possibly even rejected completely. So if you have a small forest sprouting in your guttering or are offering a home to several different species of animals and birds then it just could be time to do something about it.
