Gutter guards can be an effective way to reduce the amount of debris in your gutters, when combined with regular professional gutter cleans.
Permanent gutter covers put your property at risk
Permanent gutter protection devices pose many risks to your property. While the gutter covers block large debris, they do not stop fine dirt and dust from getting into your gutter system. This sludge will build up over time, blocking your gutters and downpipes.
Permanent gutter covers provide a protected, food-rich environment for vermin and pests to breed. Vermin feed off roof sludge and debris, and breed in warm ceiling cavities.
Permanent covers make it nearly impossible for a professional gutter cleaner to remove dirt and sludge build-up in your gutters. Unfortunately, if permanent gutter protection devices have been installed, there is no adequate way to clean the gutters without cutting or removing those very expensive guards.
Choosing the right gutter guard
Using the right gutter guard can save you money and reduce the risk of damage to your property. We recommend the use of removable gutter guards that fill the gutter cavity, blocking debris and vermin from entering the gutter system.
We can recommend and install effective gutter guard for you or you can purchase the gutter guard from us and install it yourself. We encourage you to request a professional Gutter-Vac installation quote first – you’ll be surprised at how cost-effective the Gutter-Vac installation option is!
