Benefits of Guttershield's mesh gutter guards for commercial properties
Reduce maintenance costs
Gutters need regular maintenance to keep them clean and in good condition. For commercial buildings, this often means heavy, specialised machinery which can be expensive and may impact operations. Guttershield G3 reduces the cost and need for expensive gutter maintenance for your commercial operation.
Reduce safety risks
Working at height is one of the leading causes of workplace injury - and death - in the country, and maintaining gutters poses a very real safety risk and hazard for your commercial site*. Installing Guttershield G3 will help you create a safer workplace and remove the risk of falls by eliminating the need to work at height to maintain gutters.
Protect against flood damage
Gutters clogged with leaves, birds’ nests and other debris can cause overflow during inclement weather, leading to flood damage to gutters and buildings’ walls, ceilings, flooring and fittings. Guttershield G3’s mesh gutter guard system will help avoid expensive repairs to your commercial building and from potential operational disruption from flood damage.
Increase water harvesting
Water harvesting is a great way to reduce costs and promote sustainability in your industry. However the water can become contaminated by leaves, debris and pests. Not only does this reduce the quality of the water you’re harvesting, it increases costs as your water treatment systems need to work harder than they need to. Guttershield G3 will keep your gutters clear of leaves and improve the efficiency of your water treatment facilities.
Protect from bushfire damage
Bushfires pose a real and present risk in warmer months. Many commercial buildings are destroyed in bushfires because of debris and dry leaves that are susceptible to windborne embers. Gutters are a primary source of debris, and keeping the insides of your gutters clear from anything that could be ignited by embers is vital. Guttershield’s ember mesh gutter guards will help protect your gutters and reduce the risk of damage to your building from flying embers.
Protect asset value
Your commercial building is a key capital asset, and protecting your investments is the number one priority for most businesses. Building maintenance costs are unavoidable, but gutter maintenance is. Guttershield G3 will protect the value of your building asset by expanding the lifespan of your gutter and guards, while reducing the need and cost of maintenance and repairs.
Guttershield is suitable for many types of commercial properties including:
Hotels, motels, pubs
Caravan Park outbuildings
Why we believe that Guttershield is better than any other gutter protection product
Like anything you buy, there are cheap versions and there are premium versions. In the gutter protection industry, choosing the cheap version will cost you more money in the long run, not only due to inferior product design and construction, but also due to inexperienced installation and poor service. Guttershield is the number one choice in gutter protection products for commercial properties because of its superior design and the expertise of the Guttershield team, who will take the time to discuss your needs to ensure you receive the right products, preparation and professional installation.
