The importance in Melbourne of regular gutter cleaning
As we move into Autumn and find ourselves expecting heavier rainfall it’s time that we look at 2 key services that Worboys can offer you to make your home safe;
- Regular Gutter Cleaning
- Gutter & Downpipe Replacement
Regular Gutter Cleaning
Many people believe regular gutter cleaning isn’t necessary but it’s actually important to clean your gutters and downpipes regularly 1-2 times a year.
We cannot recommend highly enough the importance of regular gutter and downpipe cleaning, this is so that stormwater is able to escape the roof effectively and prevent any damage being done to your property.
Wild storms through Melbourne (as we all know) can catch us by surprise and they keep happening more and more often.
If debris and leaves are left in gutters, you will find the build-up will decrease the efficiency of your roof and gutters working as they are supposed to.
These storms produce tropical like rain, which when regularly ignored, can easily overwhelm the gutters and downpipes, which leads to leaks and damage throughout walls and ceilings.
If you would want to speak further about Gutter Cleans, please feel open to call us on 9326 6258.
Gutter & Downpipe Replacement
Eventually your gutters and downpipes corrode and need to be replaced and this can happen prematurely if they are not kept clean.
The build-up of debris in gutters retains moisture and accelerates the corrosion process, so we recommend annual cleans which can double or triple the life of your gutters.
If your gutters do need replacing at Worboys we recommend Colourbond metals for a number of reasons.
They not only come in a huge colour range, but now with the introduction of Matt colours, they look great and last much longer than standard metal gutters.
Thanks for stopping by and if you’d like to know more please don’t hesitate to contact us on 9326 6258.
