Benefits of a Roof Gutter Guard in Australia
A gutter guard offers several benefits for your home. Without proper gutter guards in place, a gutter blockage can occur leading to water blockage. Stagnant water can seep into your building and over time damage roofs, walls, and the very foundation of your property.
The All-Flow Aluminium Gutter Mesh (AAGM) has been designed to enable your gutter system to perform to its peak potential. A patented product, the AAGM is a popular roof gutter guard in Australia.
Features such as impressive wear tolerance, fire resistance and a 15-year warranty, make AAGM a preferred product for consumers expecting high-quality roof gutter guards in Australia.
The AAGM is designed to meet consumers’ practical roof gutter guard needs in Australia. These guards are affordable and can be used on all types of roofs.
Prevents Gutter Blockage
Gutters can be blocked by debris falling from trees, such as dry leaves and twigs. Even if there are no trees on your property, debris from neighbouring greenery can crowd your gutter.
If you don’t clean your gutter regularly, the debris piles up, blocking water during rains. This water can enter the building through cracks in roofing.
The debris deposit can also be a nuisance during other seasons as it can convert into mulch, causing the resultant moisture to seep into the building through the roof.
With a roof guard in place, the entire problem is prevented as debris is not allowed into the gutter at all.
Safeguards against Rodents, Birds and Diseases
An unguarded gutter with stagnant water can become a welcoming space for mosquitoes and other insects, birds and rodents. In the absence of gutter guards, rodents and birds find it easier to enter your building interiors through your roof’s fascia. Presence of rodents, birds and insects brings diseases and nuisance.
By helping keep gutters clean, and allowing uninterrupted water flow, a gutter guard prevents such unwanted occurrences.
Minimises Need for Gutter Maintenance = Greater Savings in Cost and Time
With no debris to clear frequently, your gutter becomes easy to maintain and clean. What’s more, you don’t have to hire expensive gutter maintenance services.
If you are doing the cleaning on your own, the task of cleaning becomes easier with gutter guards as you don’t have to pick, dig and remove a pile of damp filth with your hands. With less debris to clean, you also have more time for life.
Offers Protection from Fire
During bushfires, fire embers move quickly and if they fall on dried leaves and other debris in your gutter, the fire can spread instantly. A gutter guard prevents such dangerous situations by not allowing debris into your gutter.
When installed correctly, a gutter guard causes debris such as leaves and twigs to fall on the ground. With a mesh guard, even tiny particles of debris are filtered out.
A good gutter guard such as AAGM is a great one-time investment as it protects your roof system, building and occupants, for several years down the line.
