Advantages of Gutter Guards
At Aussie Gutter Protection, we have seen all the different negative ways a lack of gutter mesh impacts on a property. That said, it’s not just preventing damage to your home that you are investing in, you could also be sparing yourself some costly medical bills.
Despite best intentions to save some money, there are countless accidents every year as a result of people falling from ladders while tending to their gutters. With the professionals working at your home you need not worry about climbing ladders or the debris you clean out compromising your grip on the ground when you descend. Why risk falling and incurring pricey hospital fees and losing money as a result of absence from work?
Gutter covers are a great way to spare yourself the hassle of cleaning out the gutters. Nothing can accumulate in the gutter while they are in place, which means that instead of having to dig out a load of rotting debris the process of clearing away anything that gathers on top is much easier.
Rodents and birds love to find somewhere snug to set up their nest. Gutters are a common nesting place and this can block up the gutters and cause stagnant water to build up and eventually spill down across your home. What’s more, do you really want to risk rats working their way under the fascia boards and invading your home?

The best gutter mesh to protect the rain gutters on your home
When it comes to considering all the possible upgrades and improvements that can be made to a home, the rain gutters usually aren't given the attention they deserve. But this is a small investment that returns big rewards, which is why it's a very smart idea to upgrade your gutters with Aussie Gutter Protection.
The advantages provided by gutter mesh
The best thing about gutter mesh is it prevents the ingression of practically anything larger than a raindrop. This is great news because it means you'll no longer have to perform the awful chore of having to regularly clean out your guttering, leaving you with more free time to enjoy or devote to more productive activities.
Additionally, gutter mesh will prolong the life of your guttering and help to protect your roof from damage. Clean gutters are healthy gutters. In the same way that too much HDLP cholesterol in your blood can create the plaque that leads to heart attacks and strokes, debris such as leaves and twigs allowed to build up in guttering will create blockages that can cause damage.
The blockages can affect the flow of water into downpipes, create backflow, and lead to overflows. This can, in turn, lead to water damage and structural damage. Another related problem is pooling, which is where small puddles of water are left behind in the guttering.
These pools of water and the blockages that create them are highly attractive to many bird species, and birds are one of the most damaging things that can find their way into your guttering.
Birds are a big problem for gutters
Birds like to bathe in the pooled water, drink from it, and use the debris from the blockages as food or material for nests. The weight of their bodies can make impressions in the thin sheet metal used for making gutters, and this makes the potential for pooling even worse. They also can create lateral bulges in the guttering material, and weaken the attachment points of the brackets that hold the guttering in place.
Eventually, the brackets can come loose from their anchoring, and then entire sections of the guttering can break away, potentially leading to costly structural damage and subsequent water damage every time it rains until the problem is fixed.
Fortunately, our gutter mesh does an excellent job of keeping birds away, and because it prevents blockages from forming in the first place, the birds are less likely to be attracted to your roof anyway. There will be other far more tempting roofs for them to explore.
