Why Install Guttering Leaf Protection?

Updated: Oct 20, 2023

Installing an external leaf gutter protection system will save you time, effort, and money on maintaining the integrity of your gutter system.

Less Gutter Cleaning with Gutter Guards

When leaf matter and debris pile up and block the gutter, it creates the perfect medium for water retention and mould growth. Both moisture and mould work to destroy the surface of the drain channel and can cause internal leaks and damage to your home or building.

When you have an external gutter guard in place, the guard collects most leaf debris from entering your gutter system and prevents the drainage channel from becoming blocked and ineffective. Where possible, the gutter guard cover is positioned at an angle so that the debris from the roof can naturally slide down and fall on the ground with the assistance of gravity and wind flow.

You can forget about leaves, twigs and all other kinds of plant materials remaining inside or on top of the drain channel. Saving you time and the effort of climbing up a ladder to clean your gutters.

Gutters Last Longer with Gutter Guards

With an external gutter guard installed the integrity of your gutter system is protected. Improving their function, longevity and protecting your home or building from water damage.

Gutters that have leaf and other debris sitting stagnate inside them can cause structural damage to the gutters. If rainwater is not able to pass through to the downpipes due to blockages or mal alignment the building itself is at a greater risk of water damage and leaks. All costly to repair. The money saving solution is easy – install a leaf gutter protection system to protect your gutters and building.

Guttering Leaf Protection to Save you Time, Effort and Money

By having gutter guards installed, you reduce the need for gutter maintenance. External gutter protection systems keep your gutters free flowing and working optimally so you don’t have to use your precious time and energy or overspend on cleaning and repairs.

Make a one-time investment and you will enjoy the benefits long term.
