- 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.
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.
- 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.)
- 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!)
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.

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
- 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.
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.

“Great work by Chris! The roof looks like new. We look forward to seeing you at our next Service. Chris and Therese run a great business👍”Cathran, Devonport Tasmania
This property has a flat roof and had lichen all over it. We treated it with Wet & Forget and waited for the lichen to die off.
After 12 months we returned to sweep the dead lichen off but were left with a dirty roof. So we pressure cleaned the roof to bring it up like new.
As you can see in the following photo, there are stains where the lichen used to be. We can treat the lichen and then wash the roof but there will always be a slight discolouration where the lichen used to grow.
We also completed a gutter clean at this property.
We have recommended a biennial gutter clean for this property and will continue to send a reminder every two years. No need for the property owner to try and remember.
Let our maintenance program work for you. If you have a property that you want regular gutter cleaning carried out, then contact Gutter-Vac Tasmania and we can help you.
” Engaged and professional at all times. When dates had to be changed due to weather issues Therese was prompt with communication and clear about what could and couldn’t be achieved at the time. Chris knew his stuff backwards and left me feeling very confident about his knowledge, abilities and workmanship. As we needed return visits when the weather was more friendly to applying a lichen treatment. I had no qualms about Chris just turning up again and getting on with it – highly recommended.”Ian, Lauderdale Tasmnia
As we work from the roof if possible, we have to sometimes reschedule the work due to rainy or windy weather. We always contact the client if there is any change to the arranged time.
We are booking work as far as three weeks sometimes and cannot predict the weather. Lichen treatments are scheduled but we keep a close eye on what the weather is doing a few days before the booking.
We require a window of no rain after the application of the treatment. Typically this is six hours of no rain and it should not be a too sunny or hot day.
After the application is completed, we sit back and wait for the weather elements to activate and reactivate the treatment over a 6-12 month period. Over this time the lichen dies and the dirt and grime are washed away.
It you would like any more information on this subject, you can contact Chris or Therese either by email or phoning 1300 654 253.
We recently cleaned a roof for a property that had black mould and tree litter on the roof and in the gutters. This had caused the tank water to taste and smell rancid. The colour of the water had changed too.
It is important to regularly maintain your gutters and keep them free of debris if you are on tank water. To help keep the water clean, you can clear the debris from the roof and prevent the amount of debris by cutting back the trees around the house.
When there is this much debris you might have to schedule gutter cleans more regularly than annually. Once the roof has been washed, blowing the debris at the time a of a gutter clean will help to maintain the sanitation of the roof and therefore the water.
You don’t need to run the risk of drinking contaminated water.
