I'm sure you've
heard good things and bad things
about gutter guards!
Some say they do work some say they don't. It all gets very confusing
with all the different types of gutter guards available in Sydney! I
mean theres gutter screens , gutter nets, gutter gloves, gutter guard
and even gutter hedgehogs! Please watch the video to the top right of
screen entitled "Gutter Guard Review" for more Information on these
install only what's known as a Gutter Screen for a few reasons:
it covers not just the gutter but also the first row of tiles
above from the gutters .(On a colorbond roof it covers the gutter and
around 200mm above onto the roof.) This is great because it creates a
"ski slope effect" allowing the debris to be blown off the roof or
washed off in heavy downpours. It's fantastic because it does not trap
or catch debris like all the other guards. It is the best option
because the space between the mesh lines is great enough to allow water
to pass through freely, unlike most of the other products available.
Please watch the video in the top left corner entitled "Sydney Gutter
Guard Installer" to see what product we install.
Gutter Guards will keep your down
pipes from getting clogged up with
debris! If no rubbish can get into the gutter then water can flow
uninhibited to the down pipes! We love keeping our down pipes
especially when these great big storms hit!
Guards will actually save you money in the future! Alot of
money! Gutter Guards will reduce the amount of times your gutters need
to be cleaned each year. Most homes need to be cleaned at least twice a
year, some up to four times a year! By installing a Gutter Guard you
will only have to get your gutters checked out on an annual basis! What
about money spent on roof damage resulting from overflowing or blocked
gutters, or valleys? What about your personal time wasted organising
insurance company to inspect and give reccomendations?
you must be sick of all the websites with all different sales
mumbo jumbo so I'll stop there!
company would be the right one to engage to quote and install gutter
guards for many reasons. The main reason I would like you to engage me
is that I do not subcontract the work to other people. Either myself or
my employee will clean and install gutter guards at your property. Not
some dodgy uninsured 3rd party. This becomes very important if
something was to go wrong, like either the product being installed
incorrectly or someone was to get hurt. We are fully insured for
damages and liability, aswell as insured incase one of us was to get
hurt whilst working at your property. We take time and don't rush the
jobs! We make sure that any gaps where debris could sneak through the
gutter guard are sealed properly (many cheaper installers will skip
this important phase of the screening process). My employees are paid
by the hour not by the job, this ensures it's done carefully. Our quote
is totally obligation and cost free! Some providers will actually
charge you up to $80 to get a quote! We listen to your concerns and set
a very high standard in both our work and safety procedures. We are
honest, if there are certain parts of your guttering that we feel wont
need gutter guard, we will tell you! Being honest and upfront with our
customers from the beggining means no headaches or complications going
forward. We are very experienced in both gutter screening and working
on a roof after over 1500 Gutter Cleans!
you've arrived on my website and are looking to get Gutter Guard
installed at your home or complex. Due to my poor ranking on google
searches I'm pretty sure my website is not the first one you've visited
today! (I designed and made the content on this website myself, but I
reckonn it gives it more charactor and importantly a personal touch)
Anyway if you've seen the countless other Gutter Guard providers'
websites you probably struggle to distinguish one company against the
other. I mean it all looks and sounds the same to me. But during your
investigations into these websites you would definitely have come
across the Gutter Guard catch phrase "Never have to clean your Gutters
is a FALSE statement, lets investigate
would highly recommend to watch my "Gutter Guard Review Video" either
before you continue reading or directly after for full clarification.
If you are in a rush and don't have time to read my opinions and advice
on Gutter Guards please feel free to fill in the inquiry form below and
I'll be in contact ASAP to arrange a free onsite inspection of your
guttering. But beware, making the right decision regarding which
product actually works and which doesn't is really quite important
because these Gutter Guards aren't exactly cheap!
I Realise attention spans on the internet are extremely short so I will
try to make this as straight to the point as possible, but as readable
as humanly possible too. As you can see I (and my competitors) have
filled this Gutter Guard page with amazing images of perfectly clean
gutters with a very neat looking net over the top of them. "The Perfect
Solution" toan irritating and expensive chore... The dreaded Gutter
Cleaning! I know Gutter Cleaning is a terrible and costly chore... I
know this well.... Because I am a Professional Gutter Cleaner! Yes,
It's Australia in the 21'st century, you can actually gain yiour sole
income from cleaning roof gutters! Thank the Lord for this Mining Boom!
Anyway lets get serious now, I have personally cleaned more than 1000
Gutters across Sydney and have come across every different Gutter Guard
under the sun! Further
down the page im going to fill the page with images from my Gutter
Cleaning travels that are going to shock you!
Go ahead, scroll down and
take a peek.... So you've seen the images of plants (even small Trees)
and moss growing through the very Gutter Guard I am recommending to
Install? I know you're thinking "Whats wrong with this Guy? He's
talking himself out of a sale!" "Wow maybe this Gutter Guard stuff
doesn't work!"... Ok take a deep breath and let's go back to that
earlier statement which you see plastered all over my competitors
websites, the Catchphrase "NEVER HAVE TO CLEAN YOUR GUTTERS AGAIN".
That statement is False.
so I've got to spend all this money on these flamin screens and I still
have to clean my gutters?" My answer is "Yes Sir!" . "This is
ridiculous! How can they not stay clean forever??? There's a screen
across my Gutters! Nothing can get in!! Nothing!" . Just take a look at
these images below and see how much stuff can get in if they are not
cleaned at least once a year. Ok lets talk some Science! Firstly lets
talk about Moss. Moss is the most common problem that develops in the
Guttering under these screens. Moss blooms in moist cool locations. The
Mesh or Metal Guards provide perfect conditions for moss to bloom
because of the shade provided by the screens or Guards.
Add to this
moisture that gets trapped underneath the Guards and you'll get alot of
moss. Moss also likes the extra shade provided by trees that overhang
the Guttering. If there is even a slight slope issue with your gutters
water will linger around after any rain or morning dew and accelerate
moss accumulation. Secondly let's think about where the rubbish goes
that lands ontop of your roof, Gutters and valleys. Even if your roof
has a decent pitch on it, there's still going to be a decent amount of
leaf matter lying ontop of the screened Gutters and valleys.
eventually after around 6 months will decompose and form a very fertile
soilk that will get through the screen. This soil will congregate
underneath the Guards and that will be the begining of a major problem.
Birds are going to be on your roof and they bring seeds for thier lunch
and these seeds will also slip through the Guards and in these perfect
growing conditions will germinate into plants causing absolute mayhem.
So how much does Gutter Guard Cost to be installed? It depends on the
actual material used as the mesh. Aluminium Mesh in supplied and
installed from around $33 per metre including GST and Plastic
Polythelene is supplied and installed from about $27 per metre
including GST. So it's not exactly cheap either with either material.
Plastic is not my favourite material in the world, and I will only
recommend to get plastic if your home is within 100 - 150m from the
Ocean. If you are not in this close to the ocean scenario definitely
consider Aluminium Mesh over Plastic Mesh, there is only $5 per metre
difference between. Valleys cost more than regular gutters for
installation because the valleys require more time and mesh to install.
It is extremely important to protect your valleys as well as your
gutters. Neglecting to protect a valley will cause you dramas in the
future from the valley being blocked with rubbish. So if you just take
rough metre paces around your home you will be able to guage in a round
about way how much you could be up for from our quote for gutter guard.
