Know the importance of clean gutters

We know gutters aren’t sexy, but they are more important than many people think. Not keeping your gutters clear of debris and gunk can lead to unexpected water run off, flooding, rust and significant structural damage to your property.

A clogged gutter means that rainwater can’t travel down the safe, designated route. As the water seeks a path of least resistance you or your guests may end up sporadically, unexpectedly drenched. However, what’s worse in the long run is when it finds its way into your home, leaking into the roof and damaging the structural integrity of your home.

If there is debris in steel gutters and water doesn’t flow properly through the gutter and downspout system the rusting process also speeds up, leading to holes and consequent repairs. We promise you, having your gutters cleaned is easier and less costly than installing new ones!

Whether a residential or commercial building, the gutters should be cleaned at least twice a year. DIY is sometimes an option, but it is a big job, and can be dangerous.

Cleaning roof gutters, particularly on very high roofs, can be difficult. Not only is is very physical work, individuals often find it difficult to safely collect and transport the gutter debris up and down a ladder. With an average of 3 Victorian’s dying from ladder falls each year, personal safety is a real issue.
