Must-Have Leaf Guard Features
Not all leaf guards are created equal, however. Before you invest on a leaf guard for your house gutters, it is important to do research on the types of leaf guards and what functionalities they offer. Check out some of the features that you should have when buying leaf guards in Sydney for your house gutters.
Leaf guards are designed to prevent leaves, dirt and other debris from entering your gutter. However, some leaf guards may retain some debris and may be difficult to clean. For instance, a gutter brush still retains some of the smaller debris with the intent for it to decompose. Some leaf guard covers are deep and the leaves may not be blown away.
When looking for a leaf guard, choose one that has a shallow dish. A shallow dish lets the wind blow blocked debris easily and lets you hose it down if some remain.
In bushfire-prone areas, it is important to install leaf guards that are non-combustible. The threat of fire damage in these places is high because of airborne embers and flaming debris that can enter the home through small gaps. If your home is located in one of these areas, look for a leaf guard that also functions as an ember guard to reduce the risk of home damage during an ember attack.
Gutters can come in all shapes and sizes. That is why you need to look for a leaf guard that you can install yourself without requiring special equipment. In addition, you should choose a leaf guard that can be adapted to all types of guttering.
