Advantages of Installing Gutter Guard in Brisbane

There are considerable advantages to installing a gutter guard. While you may seek a gutter guard for a particular reason, you will find that it comes with added benefits and value.

Gutter Guard Increases Safety and Reduces Maintenance

At AGP, safety is always #1. That is why we consider safety to be the best benefit of Gutter Guard. Cleaning out blocked gutters is a dangerous job, mostly as you work at heights, potentially on unstable ground and moving up and down ladders. Falls from ladders are among the most frequent and deadly accidents at home; gutter cleaning is an annual hazard. Gutter guard systems prevent the need to clean and maintain your gutter and keep you at a safe ground level more permeant.

Gutter Guard Prevents Blockages and Clogged Gutters

Gutters, valleys and drainpipes are frequently at risk of blockages and clogging from the accumulation of leaves and organic debris from around your property. Overflowing gutters never look pretty, but they can also affect your health – moulds, spores and pests live in these blockages and are attracted to stagnant water caused by obstructions. Gutter Guards sit inside the gutter, creating a permeable water barrier whilst encouraging leaves and twigs to fall to the ground.

Gutter Guard Impedes Damage to Roofing Systems

Gutters are susceptible to damage like all parts of the home; however, they are often costly to restore or replace – more so than the gutter guard itself. Water build-up due to gutters’ obstructions is the leading cause of damaged gutters as they can rust, corrode or bend with added water weight. Wild weather and strong downpours also put intense pressure on the gutter system. Installing gutter guard to the home strengthens your gutters and increases the lifespan of your gutters.

Gutter Guard as Bird and Pest Control in Brisbane

No one likes uninvited visitors, especially when they set up residence. Invasion of birds and other pests are dangers structurally to your homes and hygienically to your health. Birds and other pests, like vermin, carry mites, parasites and lice, which are easily transferable to humans; additionally, asthma and allergen sufferers are at risk of inducing attacks. Gutter guard is one of the most effective bird control measures. Once Gutter Guard is installed, it can prevent birds from nesting in gutters, roof valleys, solar panels under eaves, and entering roof spaces.

In Brisbane, the most common birds that require bird proofing solutions are:

  • Feral Pigeons
  • Common or Indian Myna
  • Common Starling
  • House Sparrow
