Gutter Guard Installation

Gutter Guard Installation

Clogged gutters can be a significant problem for your New Zealand home. They can overflow after rain, leading to undesirable household problems such as water intrusion, rotted soffits, fascia and more. But there’s a simple solution – gutter guards.

It’s essential that you have a plan to keep your gutters clean and ensure that water flows freely through them. This is especially the case if you have large trees likely to shed leaves and twigs into your gutters. For these reasons, such inserts can help your gutters save time, money and effort by preventing unwanted blockages.

How Gutter Guards Work

Your gutters catch rainwater from your roof and direct it away from the foundations of your building. However, when debris collects in your gutters, it can block the flow of water and prevent your gutters from working as intended. 

A gutter guard can help to prevent leaves, twigs, pests and other forms of organic debris from accumulating in your gutters and ensure that water flows as smoothly as it should. That way, you can avoid potentially expensive damage from happening to your home and drains in the long run.

How Gutter Guards Can Protect Your Home

When your gutters are clogged, water will not drain as it should, which can lead to a range of issues, including the following: 

  • Damaging to your fascia boards
  • The destabilisation of the soil around your house
  • Flooding in your basement and under your house
  • Erosion and damage to your garden and landscaping
  • Water damage to your sidings
  • Staining on brick and stone masonry
  • Damage to exterior and garage doors

Your gutters play an essential role in maintaining the longevity and structural integrity of your roof. They do this by directing the water that falls on the roof away from your house, preventing moisture damage from accumulating over time.

Investing in gutter guards is an easy way to protect your gutters and keep them intact and functional for a long time. They will allow rainwater to enter your gutters while keeping unwanted debris out.

They can even reduce how frequently you need to clean your gutters, saving you time, trouble and money.

The Benefits of Gutter Guards

By letting water flow through your gutters while keeping organic debris out, gutter guards will prevent accumulated water damage, boosting the longevity of both your gutters and downspouts. This will further reduce the amount of maintenance and repairs your home will require, preventing leaks and leaving your house looking better as well.

Preventing birds from nesting and gutters, sticks and leaves from collecting in your gutters will make it easier for you to clean them out. That will make it even easier to perform this unpleasant, time-consuming chore.

It’s not just debris gutter guards can keep away. They can also keep pests such as mosquitoes and insects from breeding by stopping water from pooling in your gutters. As a result, your family will be protected from nasty diseases. 

You can either hire an expert to install these new guards or perform a DIY job, but we highly recommend that you get a professional to handle the process.
