Homes In Eaton Hills Choosing Gutter Guards To Keep Their Gutters Clean

20 May 2020

 by Brett Mulhall

Gutters can easily become clogged thanks to a torrent of debris and material getting caught in the rain. However, with the installation of gutter guards, your gutters will remain cleaner for longer. Thankfully, our talented team of Eaton Hills plumbers at Aptus Plumbing & Gas can help you choose and install a gutter guard for your own home.

There are four main variants of gutter guards, plastic guards, galvanised meshes, powder-coated metal, and hedgehog filters. Each of these options have their own sets of strengths and weaknesses. The plastic guards are cheap and easy to install, but harsh weather conditions, particularly those found in Australia, can cause the plastic to warp, deform, and fall apart. For regions prone to fire, the galvanised mesh option is popular, as the metal has a higher heat-durability than the plastic guards, though it is prone to the same reactions to harsh weather. In addition, both guards can see seeds fall through the cracks, coming to germination in your gutter. The hedgehog filter is the easiest to install, as it is merely slotted into your gutter after being cut to size. However, leaves can become trapped in the filter, so while water may pass through freely, the resultant compost will still require regular cleaning. Finally, the powder-coated metal is the most expensive and hardest to install, but is the most effective option available. The metal comes in two styles, square for roof tiles or ridged for corrugated roofs. No matter which option you require, the talented plumbers northside at Aptus Plumbing & Gas can help you.

Aptus Plumbing & Gas can help you make the right choice about your gutter guards. We've serviced homes across Eaton Hills that required gutter guards, so you can be sure we'll be able to recommend an option that will suit your home.
