Do Gutter Guards Actually Prevent Gutter Cleaning | Gutter Guards & Blocked Downpipes

Gutter Guard Review - Do Gutter Guards Work?

This topic can be very interesting and often the answer can be totally different depending on who you actually spoke too. Do you remember the gutter guard or gutter mesh installers telling you that you will never have to clean your gutters again? I have rarely found a gutter that had an expensive gutter mesh installed and didn't needed proper gutter cleaning once a year minimum.

The simple and honest answer is NO, gutter mesh and other flexible, plastic gutter guards and leaf mesh will not fair very well against large trees like Gums, that drop gum-nuts, bark, branches and leaves into your guttering all year round. Gutter Mesh will also break down after a few short years being exposed to the harsh Australian weather.

We are constantly removing gutter guard in Adelaide, so we can clean inside the gutters. The installation of gutter guards on some 2 story homes and commercial buildings, has caused major gutter blockages that were not accessible to clean because of the gutter mesh. There are some instances where some types of gutter guards are used effectively.

If you must install gutter guards, the only suitable leaf guard that I have found effective on homes in Adelaide was the Fielders Gutter Guards. The major problem with the gutter mesh, is that the weight of debris from Gum trees causes the gutter mesh to pull away from the gutter edging. Fielders Gutter Guards are made of solid aluminum and don't flex or collapse when installed.

So when you are considering to get an expensive alternative to simply regularly cleaning your gutters which is a fraction of the price of gutter mesh installed on your home in Adelaide. Call us today and have the Gutter Guys give you a honest answer if gutter mesh will actually solve your problem or just waste your hard earned money. Take a look at the video below that shows how ineffective gutter guard really is.

I recently cleaned out some blocked up downpipes at a Bunnings Warehouse and found that the large box gutters were reasonably clean. The main problem was the 40 blocked downpipes. Why so many downpipes blocked up but the guttering reasonably clean? The gutter mesh that covered the downpipes was preventing the gum leaves from going down the pipes.

Whether or not the previous maintenance department installed them to prevent blocked storm-water or simply to get a simple call out next time it rains I wont know just yet. What we do know is that gutter mesh does not work correctly and is often the cause of water damage inside residential homes.
