Cleaning gutters is a job that nobody likes doing, but if it's not done regularly, there can be costly consequences.
Spring is renowned for windy conditions making it especially important to protect your gutters and prevent the nasty build up of leaves and debris.
Flooded ceilings and rusted gutters are the most common problems people experience as a result of clogged gutters.
Gutters filled with leaves and debris are known to attract nests of unwanted critters including ants, cockroaches and other insects.
Leaf Shield Gutter Protection specialises in all types of gutter guard including stainless steel and aluminium.
The company has a solution for any type of leaf no matter how small including Jacarandas and fine needles and its gutter guards can be fitted onto any roof type.
Leaf Shield can also prevent birds, snakes, possums and vermin from entering your roof and gutters.
Stormwater coming into your roof due to blocked gutters or valleys can cause major problems,Sherrie Blundell.
With summer just months away, now is also the perfect time to prepare your gutters from summer storms and periods of heavy rainfall.
Leaf Shield owner Sherrie Blundell said the business can offer its customers a range of products that can keep your valleys and gutters flowing beautifully in the heaviest of downpours.
"Stormwater coming into your roof due to blocked gutters or valleys can cause major problems," Ms Blundell said.
Valleys often get overlooked, but if leaves and debris build up here, water can be forced in under tiles or roofing sheets and you can end up with internal damage.
"Insurance companies and repairers say that many homeowners could have prevented internal water damage if their homes had been guarded."
Leaf Shield is one of the few companies that can supply and fit a successful valley guard product.
The system uses saddles along the entire length of the valley on metal roofs.
On tile valleys, the mesh is installed under the tiles and across the entire valley.
This stops the leaves from blocking the valleys and allows the rainwater to run down the valley gutter, as designed.
