Birds can be a real problem when they nest in your roof

While most people love to hear birds chirping, it can be a little annoying when the symphony begins at the crack of dawn – making a weekend sleep in impossible. It’s even worse when birds are nesting in your roof as baby birds are particularly noisy. 

But nesting birds aren’t just inconvenient.

The nesting material becomes a fire hazard, while birds bring lice and mites into your roof cavity to create a potential pest problem.

We can provide the solution with a gutter guard system that prevents birds from entering the roof at the gutter line.

Bird proofing is also a good idea if you have solar panels.  It’s common to find birds and possums nesting under them. Again, this creates a potential fire hazard, an increase in vermin and possible damage to your solar panel hardware.

If you look after your roof, your roof will look after your home.

To prevent problems with birds, possums, lice, mites and possible fire hazards in your roof, call Gutter-Vac Upper North Shore & Northern Beaches on 1300 654 253 for a free, no obligation quote.

Our 5 step gutter cleaning process. Your guarantee – we will do what we promise.

  1. We Vacuum Everything
    At Gutter-Vac Upper North Shore & Northern Beaches we literally vacuum everything out of your gutters! That’s all the dust, sludge, dirt, mud, leaves and twigs. Then we take it with us when we leave – unless you’d like to use it in your compost bin.
  2. Downpipes
    We also clear the top end of your downpipes – down to the first bend where 95% of blockages occur. So next time there’s a heavy downpour, you can be confident your downpipes are clear and ready for work.
  3. Roof Valleys
    Next we do the roof valleys. They’re important as they are the most likely place for water to get into the ceiling. In heavy rain, leaves can become stuck in roof valleys. This has a damming affect which can lead to water entering your roof cavity. In older homes, roof valleys are usually made from galvanised steel which will rust if leaves and debris are allowed to collect on them. This will cause leaks. (You’ll know if your roof valleys aren’t working efficiently as you will see a stain on your ceiling.)
  4. No Mess
    Lastly, we commit to leaving no mess behind – which includes inside your roof cavity. (Operators who use blowers to clean the gutters blow leaves into the roof cavity where it dries out to become a potential fire hazard!)
  5. Report
    Finally, we’ll give you a Roof & Gutter Report. It will include before and after photos as well as a personalised Preventative Maintenance Program with every standard gutter cleaning service.

Why Choose Gutter-Vac Upper North Shore & Northern Beaches

Your gutters may be out of sight but it’s still important to look after them because when it rains, the rainwater needs to go somewhere. If your gutters and downpipes are blocked, the water will go into your roof – causing all sorts of problems.

That’s why we believe cleaning your gutters regularly is an investment in maintaining the value of your property. But why choose us?

5 Excellent reasons to choose Gutter-Vac Upper North Shore & Northern Beaches

  1. We’re transparent

Our before and after photos will show you what we’ve done and the difference we’ve made. You’ll be amazed at how thoroughly we’ll clean your gutters, downpipes, roof and roof valleys, if you have them. (Roof valleys are “V-shaped” sections used when the angle of your roof changes. In older homes, roof valleys are usually made from galvanised steel which will rust if leaves and debris are allowed to collect on them.) 

  • Our special gutter cleaners

Gutter-Vac uses powerful gutter vacuum cleaners with custom-built attachments to suck up all the dirt, sludge, leaves, twigs and other debris that accumulates in your gutters and downpipes. We also dispose of it for you so you don’t need to do a thing.

  • We never use leaf blowers

Some gutter cleaners use leaf blowers to clean gutters. We never will. Leaf blowers can push the leaves and twigs into your roof cavity – causing a potential fire hazard and creating an inviting nesting area for vermin.

  • We’ll report any roof issues

While we’re on your roof, we inspect it for cracked or dislodged tiles. Anything we find is included in our Roof and Gutter Inspection Report so you can arrange any suggested repairs.

  • We offer a Preventative Maintenance Program

Our set and forget Preventative Maintenance Program is carefully tailored to the needs of your property. When developing your regular gutter cleaning and maintenance program, we consider your surroundings. For example, the proximity and number of flowering or deciduous trees, traffic conditions (which can cause greater dust and sludge accumulation) and if you have a water tank to harvest rainwater from your roof.

Did you know cleaning your solar panels once a year will increase their efficiency?

Gutter-Vac Upper North Shore & Northern Beaches offers solar panel cleaning as part of their service for residents located across the North Shore & Northern Beaches.

In case you’re not aware, solar panels only operate at maximum efficiency when they are free from dirt, grime, pollution and bird droppings. That’s why they need regular cleaning.

It’s the same with your gutters and downpipes. To maximise their efficiency at draining rainwater away from your roof, they need to be cleared of leaves, twigs, dust and sludge.

If you don’t maintain your gutters, the water will flow into your roof – potentially causing damage to your electricals, insulation and ceiling plaster.

If you have solar panels, we have an easy solution for you.

While we’re cleaning your gutters, roof and downpipes, we can clean your solar panels at the same time. That’s 2 ticks off your home maintenance “To Do” list. (It’s also much safer for you if you leave climbing onto your roof to professionals who have the right safety equipment.)

We always provide a price before we go ahead and we’ll show you before and after photos so you can see for yourself, the difference we’ve made.

If you like what you see, ask us about our Preventative Maintenance Program. It means cleaning your gutters and solar panels becomes a set and forget thing. All you need to do is take our annual call and confirm you would like us to visit. It’s too easy!

We service areas from Terrey Hills to Forestville, Palm Beach to Manly, Balgowlah to Killarney Heights and all the surrounding areas.
