Blocked gutters and burst pipes are the NUMBER ONE cause of water damage to buildings. We can’t help with burst pipes BUT we have the ideal solution for blocked gutters.
Gutters will invariably get clogged with leaves, birds nests, debris, dead animals, twigs and branches. Once your gutters are blocked the downpipes can no longer drain the water from your roof so the water will find another way to exit which is more often than not via the roof cavity and into the building.
Gutter Guard meets Australian Standards AS3959 and is compliant with Planning For Bush Fire Protection (PBP) Guidelines.
Even if you clean your gutters out regularly all it takes is one windy day to blow the leaves back into your gutters followed by a downpour and you’re back to square one.
Speaking of regularly cleaning your gutters a gutter cleaning service will charge you upwards of $250 at time or you can risk serious injury by getting up to your roof to do it yourself.
Installing gutter guards will not only keep your gutters clean but will continue to protect your gutters for many years thus eliminating the need for regular gutter cleaning. Gutter Guard will also ensure that rainwater continues to have an unhindered path to the stormwater drain via the downpipes.
