Guttershield for residences

How we give you back your weekends and save you a lot of money

We’re yet to meet a home-owner or tenant who enjoys cleaning out gutters – month after month, year after year. And this can be a weekly chore during Queensland storm seasons. But not clearing them out regularly can have awful consequences.

The consequences of not having Guttershield gutter mesh installed

gutter issues

Issues

  • Gutters clog up with leaves and debris every single day and if they’re not cleaned out regularly, this breaks down into compost.
  • The compost can sprout weeds, even small trees.
  • The downpipes clog up with leaves and water has nowhere to go.
  • Bird nests can block up gutters with their twigs / sticks and this can be a real fire hazard if there are embers in the air.
gutter damage

Damages

  • The damp causes rot and holes in your guttering and timbers
  • Rotted areas provide access for pests, birds, snakes and possums into your ceiling space.
  • During downpours your guttering becomes a waterfall as the water can’t escape into your downpipes.
  • Acidic bird droppings can also affect the coating of your roof
  • Trapped water can serve as a breeding ground for pests like mosquitoes and other insects
costs

Costs

  • You need to spend time cleaning your gutters regularly, or pay someone to do it.
  • You could easily be injured and incur financial and health costs*
  • Without regular clearing, the guttering will deteriorate and need replacing.
  • Gutter build up can cause water to flow under the roof into the ceiling space and incur expensive repairs.
  • If you have water tanks, they won’t be filling up if the water can’t flow into the pipes, so you may end up having to buy water.

*5643 Australians were injured after falling from a ladder in 2017-18. On average 4.5 Australians, mainly men, die each year after falling from a ladder. Most men injured or killed after falling from a ladder were at or nearing retirement age, and were doing maintenance around the home.

Why we believe that Guttershield is better than any other gutter protection product

Like anything you buy – there are cheap and premium versions. In the gutter protection industry, choosing cheap 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.

“It's a rare thing these days to find an employee with the amount of product knowledge, personality and manners that you have, Congratulations. The product that you represent 'Guttershield' is as you said a great product and one that I would recommend without hesitation to anybody thinking of installing some form of gutter protection. You not only went out of your way to have our installation completed before the Christmas break but the installation itself was perfect and the product has already proved itself during a couple of storms that we had in January. Apart from being a Kiwi and an All Black supporter like myself, it was a pleasure to meet you and to do business with you and Guttershield.”
