Going up a ladder to clean moss or leaves out of the Guttering is NOT a great job
Leaves from trees or moss from the roof can quickly accumulate in the guttering. If left unattended it can almost certainly lead to the gutter over flowing and the damage this can cause to your property can be considerable.
Soakaways and drains can also become blocked from unwanted debris requiring the cost of a specialist contractor to come out and clear the blockage for a fee.
The Fascia Division will always suggest fitting Gutter guard product as standard as we believe this is a potential answer to the problem for the future. If the debris is prevented from entering the guttering in the first place or at the very least restricted then it has been proven to prolong the effectiveness of the rainwater system.
There are several types of leaf guards out there eg Gutterguard, Gutter-Clear and the Hedgehog brush system. There is also a metal system that claims to use the ‘coander effect’ from a well known competitor… Each have benefits, each claiming to be better than the other. The Fascia Division has tried them all and we have done so fairly extensively with varying results.
The product we recommend is either Gutterguard or Gutter-Clear. We will however fit any other system available on the market if there is an alternative you would prefer.
