There are many reasons why we don’t get on the roof to clean gutters.
This time the pitch of the roof was too steep for us to access. However, that being said this particular property was part of a complex of co-joined units sharing a common gutter line.
We ran our tallest ladder up the back of the building to access the valley between the two rooves. This was a big collection point for the gum tree debris to collect.
There was even an empty bottle of beer in the valley. How that got there is anyone’s guess.
The valleys lead to rain heads which were full of debris too. This collection of debris in the valley and rain heads has started the rusting process. This is a prime example of why it is not good to leave matter sitting in gutters. You might not have any overflow issues but you are shortening the life of your gutters.
The gutters around the outside perimeter of the unit had grass growing from them. At the best of times it is no mean feat to use our ground workers system but when there is grass it makes our job even harder. Therefore the flow on effect is more cost for the customer.
An annual gutter clean on this property should be a much easier process for us and prove to be cost effective for the customer. The rusting process may even slow down if caught in time.
Do you have gutters and valleys that have not been clean due to a steep pitch, please give us a call to see how we can help you. Ph 1300 654 253.
