Gutter Guard Issues – Can you spot something wrong with these gutters?
You certainly don’t need to be an expert to see that ‘Gutter Guard’ doesn’t always do what the advertisements say.
Gutter Guard comes in all shapes and sizes from cheap plastic to expensive stainless mesh, gutter guard is designed to prevent debris and leaf fall from collecting in your gutters and to maintain water flow between maintenance programs.
You might have come across an advertisement stating that you’ll “never clean your gutters again!’ this statement is extremely misleading, and the facts tell us otherwise. In fact, Gutter Guard can cause many issues that you may not have thought about.
Photos say a thousand words right? Well, check out some of the gutter guards fails we have come across. It’s fair to all of these gutter guards needed to be removed along with a much-needed gutter clean!
But what happens to all the fine debris that goes through the gutters guard? All the dirt, dust, and seeds
You might see nice healthy plants that can start to grow underneath the gutter guard (see examples above) and it becomes quite an expensive task to conduct a gutter clean due to the labour of removing the gutter guard to get underneath the gutters.
Our team have even across vermin dead or alive such as snakes and mice and rats trapped underneath the gutter guard.
The wrong Gutter Guard can lead to all kinds of issues such as rust, sludge and rotting debris.
Remember maintenance does not stop once you have a gutter guard, if you think it is expensive to replace gutters try and imagine the cost of replacing your whole roof. We have seen new roofs rust out in a little over a year by failure to remove leaf debris from roofs where debris is caught on gutter guard.
