Over 8 weeks we hope to provide you with some valuable information to aid with any concerns you have or any decisions you are looking to make in regards to your roof.

In this episode we tackle another of our most frequently asked questions:

 "Is it worth getting gutter guard?"

Key Points

Watch the episode below to find out about :

  • Factors to consider for whether you need gutter guard, and
  • Maintenance required after installing gutter guard



Brief Summary

If you are considering gutter guard as an option, firstly ask yourself whether you have trees surrounding your home? If the answer is "No" then gutter guard is probably unnecessary in your case.

If the answer is "Yes" then you may want to consider your options in terms of preventing leaves and debris from settling in your gutters and blocking water flow and drainage.

Something else to consider is that whilst gutter guard is a great measure to prevent blocked gutters and subsequent roof leaks, it will still require some maintenance. We would still recommend you have your guttering cleaned at least once every six months to prolong the life of your gutters and ensure the gutter guard can continue doing it's job.
