Please note: In order to receive an accurate as possible quote, you will need to have a pretty accurate idea of how many lineal meters of guttering are
on your property. This can be done by taking meter long paces around the circumference of your home or by using measure tape or a measure wheel.
You would also need to know the actual colour of your gutters and roof, as well as understand what type of tiled or metal roof it is. Our Product
is not recommended on Slate Roofs or on Roofs exposed to pine needles or large amounts of fine materials. You can simply choose from 3 options below:
Firstly the Price Match option, you would simply need to provide a few details from the quote you have already received from another provider. Secondly
you can choose the QIY(Quote It Yourself) option, if you know the accurate total linear meterage of your valleys and gutters, the color of the roof and guttering, then the
QIY option would suit you the best! Finally the Traditional Quote Option, this would suit someone who is extremely busy or not wanting to fuss with colour
matching their roof and gutters. It also suits someone who does not want any hiccups along the road to installation. Hiccups like incorrect materials or
discovering your gutters are not in good shape for gutter guard. I Welcome any Subcontract Requests from Tradespeople within my serviced areas. Please fill in your details and I will contact you to
discuss a per Lineal Meter rate for my installation services. Each of the 4 quote options are explained in further detail further down the page.
The Traditional Gutter Guard Quote Option
My most popular type of gutter guard enquiry is the Traditional Gutter Guard Quote Option. Firstly it is important to note, that I can only perform
traditional quotes in Wollongong and Sydney. Customers wanting a quote from the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, South Coast, Newcastle, Port Stephens
and the Hunter Region I can only Price Match or offer a QIY option. The next factor that needs to be understood regarding a Traditional Quote is that
I will be coming to clean and inspect your gutters as well as measuring for gutter guard. After answering some easy questions about your roof, you will
be quoted a Gutter Cleaning price instantly as well as an accurate estimated per lineal meter rate for Gutter Guard Installation, Cleaning and Supply of
Materials. If you accept the Gutter Cleaning and Inspection Price, you must understand that you will be charged the price for gutter cleaning on the day
I have completed the clean. After I have cleaned your gutters and checked the downpipes, I will leave you with a quote for gutter guard installation and
a full report on the status of your roof and gutters. If you accept that quote(within 30 days), then the amount I charged for the Gutter Clean will be deducted from the
total quote for Gutter Guard. After you have received your traditional quote, I cannot perform a pricematch , nor would I be held to a QIY(Quote it Yourself)
option. So basically I am willing to come to your home to measure and quote for gutter guard installation, but I do need to be getting rewarded with at least
the Gutter Clean for my troubles as my services are in high demand.

The Quote it Yourself (QIY) Option
The Quote It Yourself (QIY) Option is extremely handy for homeowners that know their properties dimensions. Usually this option is taken by owner builders
or home owners in possession of their home blueprints. What must be said upfront about the QIY option is that if you supply me with the incorrect colours
or measurements for your home, you will be charged for any additional amount of materials required to complete the installation, as well as a fee for having
to return at a later date to complete the installation. So it is important that you know these colours and measurements accurately. The trickiest part of
a QIY option is to measure the valleys, it is advised to overcompensate by 2 meters or so if you are unsure of the length of your valleys. This option is
also suited for property owners in areas where it is difficult to get someone out to give you a quotation. The next time you have a tradesman at the house
you could ask them to quickly measure the total length of guttering for you! Then fill out the form at a later date. So to summarise, great care would need
to be taken to ensure the measurements you provide to me are accurate otherwise this option is not recommended. * If you know your measurements, but are
struggling to identify the colours, you can go into painting stores or your local hardware store (or big chain) and get free colour matching brochures
(or cards). You can use these colour matching cards to correctly identify your roof or gutter colour.
The Gutter Guard Price Match Option
The Price Match is a bit of a controversial one! To be fair to anyone who has already taken the effort to come to your property and give you a price,
you should use their services rather than mine. The Price Match would suit if there was something that you really didn't like about the person who provided
you with the quote or if you are struggling to get them to come to your house and execute their quote! It's pretty simple if you would like me to consider
matching someone else's quote, you just need to send me the total price quoted including GST (also mention if there was a discount for cash type offering),
the name of the company or provider, the measurements that they took and your contact details to get back in touch with you.
Why Choose Us?
Everyone has their own song and dance about why they should be chosen! Usually it involves the words professionalism or attention to details, but each website
list the same reasons why they should be chosen. How can a gutter guard installation company differentiate itself from another one? Most gutter guard
installers promote the leafscreener aluminum mesh and very few the bluescope steel gutter guard. Both are by far the best products available to the consumer
and I install and promote both products. I perform all my installations myself and have experience in excess of 1000 installs across NSW. My website makes
it easy for you to meet me and gather extra information and insight that other websites can't offer you. I am the only provider in Australia that offers you
an automated gutter guard installation booking service. As a lot of the price for installing gutter guard involves compensation for fuel and time spent
driving. The automated booking service saves you money and the hassle of waiting at home for me to come and measure your gutters and provide you with a
quote. It also saves me the time and petrol used to drive to your home to give you the quote, so it is a win win situation and I am willing to offer a
discounted rate to customers who are willing to use the automated service. I have a lot of experience working on a roof with a focus on gutter cleaning ,
gutter guard installation and can work safely at any height and on roofs with the steepest of pitches. I'm a really easy going guy and customer's find me
very easy to communicate with and of course I am professional and pay attention to the details. There are many reasons why you should use the gutter cleaners
that are offering their services on the Foreverclean website. The most important is again the automated booking service, if you are happy with their instant
quote you can book them in straight away! (Even at 3am in front of your computer or on your lunchbreak on your mobile phone!) The other reason why you should
book our gutter cleaners is that you can view their profiles and get a good idea of exactly whom you are inviting to your property to carry out the gutter
How can I help you?
Does Gutter Guard Work?
This is the most asked question in the industry, so I thought I might put it on the homepage for all to have a read! "Does gutter guard work?"
The answer is not so simple, as it depends how you define the "work" aspect of the statement. It works to keep sticks and leaves out of your guttering
and keeps your downpipes clear. It does not work to keep pine needles and very fine pollens out of your gutters. If you are reading a website and they
mention the following: YOU WILL NEVER HAVE TO CLEAN YOUR GUTTERS AGAIN , close your browser immediately! Suppliers and installers should not use that
wording when selling gutter guard, it's just not true at all. After installation of gutter guard it is highly recommended to get your gutters inspected
for fine debris at least every 12 months. You should have them checked even more frequently if you are exposed to a lot of leaf litter. A leaf screen
has a wide enough hole aperture of 3.5mm to allow unrestricted water flow into the gutters, anything with a narrower hole aperture will cause water to
either bead off the end of the guttering during rain or dew, or sheet over the top of the guttering if the hole aperture is extremely small. If you are
in a Bush Fire rated zone in Australia, then you will unfortunately need to get a gutter guard with a maximum of 2mm aperture to keep the small burning
embers out of the gutters. I can install this bush fire rated gutter guard upon request. So anyway, back to the question, having the 3.5mm aperture does
enable fine materials to get through the mesh. They are usually (but not always) flushed out of the system during the next rainfall and you will have no
buildup. If there is a slope issue with the guttering then the build up will occur quite quickly. It is recommended not to install gutter guard onto gutters
that are older than 10 years, it is wiser for the homeowner to start saving up for new guttering! Gutter Guard is extremely good at aiding in the harvest
of clean water for your household water tanks. When combined with the tanks own dirt filter, gutter guard is an absolute "no-brainer" for households
with water tanks. Which customer would not be satisfied with gutter guard? A customer who has a pine needle tree, sorry guys and girls, there is
nothing you can do except regular gutter cleaning. Please don't get tricked into the smaller holed products, yes they will keep the needles out,
but they will also keep the water out of your gutters due to the holes being too small. A Customer who has damaged, rusted, incorrectly sloped or aged
guttering(10yrs plus), if you fall into this category, it is better to keep cleaning the gutters as much as you can and save up for new gutters.
Customers getting aluminum leaf screener installed within 100 - 200m of salty water. Unfortunately you would have to go with the plastic leafscreener
as the aluminum mesh is too thin and will corrode from exposure to excess salt. Finally gutter guard works at keeping gutter cleaners off your roof.
As your maintenance needs a drastically lowered by the installation of gutter guard, you will not need someone trampling around on your roof or scratching
the gutters with their ladders so frequently!
How to Unblock a Downpipe Without Expensive Tools
Enquiries for gutter cleaning on the Foreverclean website are usually triggered by large rain events across Australia. Usually the customer is in a panic
to get it done before the next stage of the storm hits. I thought it would be a great help to give some advice on our homepage to assist desperate customers
who need to get a down pipe unblocked as soon as possible and as cheap as possible. Please be aware that working from a roof or on a ladder is extremely
dangerous, never follow the instructions below without having someone to help or at least watch out for you. Never carry heavy materials up a ladder
and be aware of the surface where your ladder is set up. Is it flat? Is it slippery? Do I have to set up the ladder on the grass or is there a better
place to set the ladder up. Take it easy and slowly and you will increase your chances of *not* falling from the roof or ladder. You will need a garden
hose, a ladder high enough to reach the top of the down pipe, a pair of gloves and a wire coat hanger(only if you have one, the down pipe can be unblocked
without it , but it can aid in breaking up the material stuck in the down pipe). Setting up the ladder, find the safest place to set up your ladder. If you
ladder is an extension ladder, use a ladder strap, octopus strap or some rope to tie the ladder around the down pipe (at the top end of the ladder) to help
aid against the ladder rocking left or right whilst you ascend later on. Next you need to prepare the hose for the flush. Remove any spray or sprinkler
attachments from the end that you will be putting down the upper mouth of the down pipe. Next remove any connecter on the hose on the end going down the
down pipe so that you just have a "naked" hose. Climb up the ladder with the naked end of the hose and your coat hanger to the entry point to the down
pipe. You need to firstly try and get as much debris out of the entry point to the down pipe as you can safely. Sometimes this is difficult because you
can't get your hand underneath the tile or it's near a corner. If that is the case then use the coat hanger to push the debris through the first bend in
the down pipe. If you do not have a coat hanger you can actually use the naked hose to push the debris through the first bend. After trying multiple
angle you will see that the hose and coat hanger can mould itself to get around that first bend in the down pipe. If you are working from a ladder and
are close enough to the down pipe to give it a generous few punches with your hand, then hit the down pipe a few times on the *under side* of the first
bend. This will help to move the loosened debris to the next bend and will make it easier to wash down when you switch on the hose. Obviously don't hit
it so hard test the down pipe becomes disconnected or damaged in any way. Spend a good five minutes loosening the debris with either the naked hose or
the coat hanger and keep encouraging it along to the next bend in the down pipe by hitting the under side of the pipe itself. After 5 minutes of this,
ask your companion to switch on the hose and wash the debris out of the down pipe. If the water starts to overflow from the top of the down pipe,
then you have been unsuccessful in removing the blockage. In this case switch off the water and repeat the process of trying to loosen the debris stuck
in the bend until you hear it either "Wooosh" down with the water or you hear the debris falling down the pipe. If the entire down pipe fills up with
water and it is not hollow at the base of the pipe, then unfortunately you have a blockage in the pipe leading to the storm water. This could be because
of a random tree root or some other blockage and you would unfortunately need to call a plumber to rectify this blockage.
