Quite a powerful headline and quite rightly so – it’s a job that is often overlooked but could potentially save your life come bushfire season. What is it you ask? It’s the simple task of cleaning your gutters.
We spoke with Brent from Suntile roofing about the importance of cleaning your gutters to protect your home during the bushfire season and he informed us that not only can this small task save lives but also stop preventable damage happening.
Clogged gutters can wreak havoc with the natural drainage of water away from your home. This can result in damage to fascia, roofing, and ultimately leaking into your home. By cleaning your gutters for the two reasons already spoken about you then in turn prevent the nesting of birds, termites, mosquitoes and other insects and also maintain the value and beauty of your home.
If cleaning your gutters isn’t something you have time for then give Brent a call and have a chat to him about the Leaf Guard System he installs on new and existing homes. It prevents the build up of leaves and dirt whilst still allowing water drainage and he can match it into your existing colour bond roof.
Brent also lets us in on a little tip if you’re buying a new home – make sure you watch until the end!
And a little tip from us here at Build In Warrnambool is treat your gutters like you do a smoke alarm and check regularly. Brent thinks Spring and Autumn are great times and we agree.
