The Benefits of Gutter Guards

Gutter Guard is an excellent investment to any home giving all property owners complete peace of mind.

Gutter Protection Is Important

Most people give too little thought to the importance of gutters and their maintenance until they experience an actual problem, and by then, it’s too late to avoid costly repairs. In the worst cases, the damage caused can be so extensive it may require the rebuilding of an entire room.

Guttering systems are designed to handle temporary loads, which are in constant motion. What they’re not intended for is static heavy rain. When leaves, organic debris and litter build up in the guttering, several serious problems can develop and cause damage.

Gutter Guard Prevents Gutter Blockages

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 or stagnant water is a breeding ground for moulds, spores and pests that can affect your health. It also improves property aesthetics as the gutters remain clean and clear.

Gutter Guard Strengthens Your Gutters

Water and debris build-up is the leading cause of damaged gutters as they can rust, corrode or bend and are expensive to restore or replace. Installing a gutter guard to the home strengthens your gutters and increases their lifespan.

Gutter Guard Industry Leaders

Gutter guards (also referred to as gutter protection, leaf guard, gutter covers) are products designed to allow optimal water flow through the gutters by preventing blockages in the gutters.

Buildings without gutter guard typically have exposed gutters that catch and drain rainwater from roofs. Gutters are connected to downspouts and channel water down and away from a building to protect its structure.

Over time, exposed gutters receive a build-up of leaves and debris that clogs gutters, which prevents water flow. If left unattended, the build-up of water and debris can cause irreversible damage to gutters, including corrosion and damage to the buildings’ walls and foundations.

Preventing this damage requires regular gutter cleaning or the installation of gutter guards.

A gutter cover will filter the water into the gutters and encourage leaves and debris to fall to the ground. Gutter guard installations reduce the need for regular gutter cleaning. They help prevent leaves and debris build-up, allowing the gutters to maximise water follow and function.

They are most commonly an add-on to an existing gutter system that involves attaching or inserting material over the exposed gutter to prevent debris entry whilst allowing water to flow through easily.
