The roof, valleys and guttering play a crucial part in your property’s structural integrity. Gutters are vital in ensuring water moves efficiently through your building’s drainage system. They help keep moisture away from the roof and foundation, preventing problems like mould growth or structural water damage.
A clean and functioning gutter system will restrict rainwater from entering the ceiling and wall cavity. It will direct runoff away from windows, doors and walkways and into the stormwater drain or water tank, protecting your property and landscaping from erosion.
However, over time, gutters and downpipes get clogged with debris such as leaves, branches, animal droppings, and even items like tennis balls or frisbees!
Built-up organic matter on a roof is not just unsightly; it is also a fire hazard and quickly becomes a haven for pests and vermin to breed. When rainwater is restricted or overflowing, it can cause severe, sometimes irreversible moisture damage – devaluing your property.
Even if you have gutter guard installed, smaller debris and dirt still builds-up underneath. Your guttering system still needs to be checked regularly to avoid roof repairs, rusting gutters, and a hefty restoration bill.
Gutters can be a hassle to maintain, but they are a vital part of protecting the integrity and value of your home. As a general rule, we recommend our Central Coast customers have their gutters professionally cleaned at least once or twice per year minimum.
However, other factors may mean they need more frequent attention.
Part of the beauty of the Central Coast is its many trees. But the many falling leaves and twigs can be a real nuisance to our homes and are the most common source of gutter blockages. Naturally, if your property is surrounded by trees (especially deciduous ones), you’ll have to clean your gutters more frequently. This is particularly important if you are in a bush-fire prone area.
Another factor to consider is the design and position of your roof, including the amount of natural sunlight your roof and gutters receive. Gutters in the shade stay damp for longer. Moist sediment along the bottom of gutter channels creates the perfect conditions for moss (and other biological growth) to thrive, quickly causing blockages.
As Central Coast residents well know; storms, long periods of dry weather, strong winds and bush fires all contribute to the amount of dirt, leaves and debris collected on your roof and clogging your gutters and downpipes.
There are many different styles of gutter, each with its own unique design and profile. Some are wide and deep, suited to handle large amounts of debris before they clog. Some have internal brackets where twigs and larger debris can be easily caught. Other types are narrow and shallow, quickly blocking after just a short time. Perhaps this sounds like your property? If so, you may want to consider adding an extra gutter clean to your maintenance schedule – an insurance policy against future issues that will definitely pay off.
There are countless types of gutter guards and leaf guards on the market. But, they all have the same goal: to stop debris blocking your gutters without impeding the flow of rainwater. Despite what some salespeople may claim, there is no such thing as a maintenance-free gutter guard system. Even the best systems can be entirely overcome by debris if not maintained. Gutter guards can spread out the time between cleans, but they do make the act of gutter cleaning more labour intensive when the time comes.
Gutter cleaning is one of the most important maintenance jobs to do on your property. But, when it comes to all the areas where you’d like to spend money on your property, gutter cleaning is probably not in many people’s top-tier list.
DIY gutter cleaning is dangerous and really not an option if you want to avoid any possibility of property damage or, more importantly, personal injury. Hiring an expert can give tremendous peace of mind knowing they will execute the job safely and thoroughly, without leaving a mess.
One of the most overlooked benefits of gutter cleaning is that it saves money.
Regular maintenance will keep your roof and gutters looking good and working well, limiting costly repairs to other areas of a property affected by poor gutter conditions. A well-maintained property will have an increased lifespan and be easier to sell when the time comes.
Roof drainage maintenance is an expense that can easily go unnoticed. Still, the average price of regular cleaning and maintenance will always be significantly less than paying to fix damages caused by blocked overflowing or damaged gutters.
Whether for your own home or a rental property you manage, our prices are affordable to add gutter cleaning to your regular maintenance schedule. But, as you can see, many factors can influence the cost. The average price can vary from about $200 for a small property to around $600 for a more complicated project. This is something we can look at and talk to you about when you get in touch.
As every property is unique, we organise a free and no obligation site inspection, so you can have peace of mind of the best quote for your job.
Depending on the design of your property and surrounding landscape, gutter cleaning prices will be affected by how easy they are to access. Split levels, a steep roof pitch or overhanging branches may increase the difficulty of a job.
Single storey properties generally have a lower gutter cleaning rate than multi-storey buildings. Due to increased safety risks, workload and requirement of specialised equipment, rates are adjusted with each additional level.
If gutters haven’t been cleaned for some time (or maybe ever), there will, of course, be more debris that has likely started to compact. An initial clean will be much more labour intensive to thoroughly dig out the dirt.
Property size is a key factor when determining the amount of work required for a thorough gutter cleaning. Larger homes generally mean greater linear meterage to care for.
Many modern rain drainage and harvesting systems can include a wide variety of extra accessories to filter debris. Accessories like first-flush systems, water tank filters, gutter guards, splash guards and rain heads all require additional maintenance.
