26 6 [Edition datE] Tuesday May 24 2016 SELWYN HOME PROFESSIONALS SELWYN TIMES ELIMINATE SPOUTING TROUBLES aUtUMN Is now in full swing with attractive scenes of bronze tinted trees and leaves on the ground; leaves that require sweeping up and that clog the spouting. Leaves in guttering can cause blockages leading to rainwater overflowing and potentially damaging the internal structure of a home. Damp leaves are also acidic and can erode spouting so it is important to keep it clear; a job that is laborious while climbing ladders is hazardous. In winter, the guttering may get damaged when weighty snow slides off the roof, buckling spouting, something that may occur even when snow straps are fitted. spouting protection products can help overcome these problems especially systems such as Gutter Guard which does not become brittle and break down from the effect of sunlight as does plastic. Gutter Guard is also strong enough to carry snow so there is no need for snow straps. “Gutter Guard is fitted with a louvre, like a cheese grater that results in debris and leaves sliding over it rather than being caught inside the spouting as can happen with coverings such as chicken wire, which might be fitted to stop birds but might also trap rubbish as well as rust over time,” explains rohan rudd owner of Gum Leaf. Gum Leaf Gutter Guard solves the problem of birds, leaves and snow, keeps rubbish out and is an ideal enhancement where rain water is collected from the roof for storage or irrigation purposes by ensuring higher water quality. Clogged gutterings may damage to a home “everything slides right over Gutter Guard so things don’t get caught in the covering,” advises rohan. This high quality and durable product is made from coloursteel. It is patented and has been on the market for over 20 years. Gutter Guard is colour matched to the roof of a house (both steel and screws). It blends with the roof of a house so is not noticeable. “a customer with an attractive home in Kirwee didn’t want anything that could be seen. I pointed to his neighbour’s house and said we’d fitted Gutter Guard on that. STOP LEAVES birds, snow, hail & vermin from blocking up your spouting he was really surprised as he’d never noticed it,” says rohan. Gum Leaf is the only firm that installs Gutter Guard and they are experts. They do a professional job no matter what the roof type whether a house, school, commercial or industrial building. They have their own scaffolding working two metres above the ground and not from the roof which also means there is no damage to the garden.
