Guttering is an essential system to the home but it can be a pain having to clean them out all the time. Stop this from being an issue by installing some gutter guards. As well as reducing maintenance, they have several other benefits. Here’s what you need to know.
Gutter guards are simply a mesh system that is fitted to the inner top of your gutter in order to stop leaves and other debris from getting into the gutters and potentially causing damage. As well, it stops mosquitoes from breeding, keeps the roof free of possums and other vermin, and also stops the gutters from rusting prematurely. Gutter guards make your gutters much more low maintenance as you don’t have to physically clear the gutters – just remove any debris that may be sitting on top of the guard periodically. If you have a rainwater tank, a gutter guard will ensure that cleaner water enters the tank.
There are different types of gutter guards made from mesh, wire, or specially designed aluminium. No matter which one you choose, it should be fire rated for extra protection in the event of a fire. Ensure that it fits into the profile of your gutter.
You can easily install gutter guards yourself or you can have your professional roof plumber or roofer install them for you when you are installing new guttering, replacing guttering, or having maintenance performed. If you opt to have a professional do it, ensure that they are appropriately qualified, licensed and insured, and that they can supply the material as well.
