Having properly installed gutter guard can save you a lot of money. Gutter guard can drastically decrease the amount of gutter maintenance required to keep your gutters working as they should. Gutter guards will help keep leaves, sticks and other debris out of your gutters and down pipes potentially stopping blockages and saving you thousands of dollars in damage to your property.
Many homes in NSW and in particular the Newcastle and Port Stephens regions make use of fresh water tanks that get their water through down pipes connected to gutters on roofs. Gutter guard can help keep your water cleaner by filtering out a lot of fine debris that may make it to the tank or block up the tanks filter.
Gutter guards are a great way to cut back on gutter maintenance costs and help keep your home safe, however gutters will still need cleaning even with professionally installed gutter guard as sludge and other debris can and will still form over time under the gutter guard. This can be hard to spot and may give a home owner a false sense of security and cause them not to check the property’s gutters as regularly. If sludge and fine debris is allowed to build up underneath the gutter guard the flow of water will be interrupted which can potentially cause expensive water damage to your property, pest infestations and increase your homes risk to fire.
