Fixed gutter guard is a tool to be used with gutter cleaning

Fixed gutter guards can be very effective in preventing leaves, twigs, and larger debris from clogging up your gutters. However, while they do an excellent job at keeping your gutters clear, they may not entirely prevent debris from landing on your roof.

Here are a few suggestions to complement fixed gutter guards and minimise debris on your roof:

  1. Trim overhanging branches: Tree branches that hang over your roof can deposit a significant amount of debris. Trimming them back can reduce the amount of leaves and twigs that fall onto the roof.
  2. Regular roof inspections: Schedule periodic inspections to remove any debris that accumulates on the roof. Use a broom or a leaf blower to clear off leaves, pine needles, or other debris.
  3. Professional cleaning: Hire professionals to clear the debris from the roof and on top of the gutter guard. They have the tools and expertise to safely remove debris without causing damage to the roof. Only hire companies with working at heights and the appropriate insurance.
  4. Maintain surrounding areas: Keep the area around your home tidy. Rake leaves and remove any loose debris from nearby trees to minimise what ends up on the roof.

Regular roof maintenance and cleaning on top of fixed gutter guards can significantly reduce the amount of debris that accumulates in your gutters, ultimately preserving the integrity and lifespan of both the roof and the gutters. After cleaning off the top of the gutter guard, regular flushing of the gutter will prolong the time frame required to lift the gutter guard to clean any debris from the gutter itself. This is the most cost-effective way as lifting gutter guard is an expensive exercise.

Debris sitting on the roof creates faster deterioration of the roof surface.

Gutter guards are installed to keep debris out of the gutters, but they can’t prevent debris from accumulating on the roof itself or the guard for that matter.

Removal of leaves, branches, and other debris is crucial to preserving the integrity and longevity of the roof. The need for periodic inspections and cleaning will prevent any build-up that could trap moisture or cause damage over time.

Have you had your gutters cleaned this bush fire season?

Do you live in bushy area? You should consider getting your gutters cleaned this summer. With the past presence of bushfires in Tasmania, you can take this chance to protect your home and decrease the likelihood of fires spreading. When gutters are left neglected, the dry leaves and debris are left vulnerable to embers. If there is a fire nearby and there are embers in the air, one could fall in your gutters and ignite the debris.

If you haven’t already had your gutters cleaned, now is the time to take action. Call 1300 654 253 to book in or click here to get a free quote. Help protect your home against fires.

Plants do not belong in gutters

Gutters are an essential part of any well-maintained home, designed to efficiently channel rainwater away from the roof and foundation. When plants grow in gutters, they are preventing this from happening. Let’s explore the reasons why plants growing in gutters from debris can be detrimental, highlighting the potential risks and negative consequences associated with this phenomenon.

Structural Damage
When gutters become blocked with debris, the weight of the accumulated material can strain the gutter system. As plants take root and grow within debris, their expanding root systems can further exacerbate the problem. The added weight and pressure can lead to sagging, detachment, or even collapse. This structural damage can be costly to repair.

Blockage and Overflow
Gutters are meant to efficiently channel rainwater away from the roof and foundation. When plants are growing in gutters, their roots could cause blockages and obstruct the flow of water. This can result in water overflow, leading to potential damage to the roof, walls and foundation of the house. Excessive moisture can seep into the roof, leading to leaks, rot and potential structural damage. Additionally, blocked gutters could attract pests, and insects, creating an additional nuisance.

Look at those luscious plants! They love what these gutters were offering.

Fire Hazard
Dry debris, such as leaves and twigs, can become highly flammable, especially during fire season. When plants grow within this debris, they can act as fuel for potential fires. In the event of a fire, the presence of plants in gutters can contribute to the rapid spread of flames, endangering both the property and the safety of its occupants.

While it may seem harmless or even aesthetically pleasing to have plants growing in your gutters, the potential risks are real. From structural damage and water overflow to pest infestations and fire hazards, the risks associated with plant growth in gutters are significant. Regular maintenance and cleaning of gutters are essential to prevent these issues. By prioritising gutter maintenance, homeowners can protect their property, maintain a safe living environment, and avoid costly repairs in the long run.
