You will seldom have to climb up a ladder to clean your gutters after installing a gutter protector.
This is certainly great news for all those who have to perform the task of removing debris from their roof’s drain channel at least twice a year.
The risk of falling from the ladder while cleaning the gutters and getting injured is quite high. You will certainly have a much safer life without having to incur this risk.
The Gutter Protector Allows for Automatic (reduced) Cleaning
When the protective cover is installed professionally over the drain channel, one end is attached to the roof using a specific technique, which depends on the respective roof structure. The other end is attached to the outer edge of the drain channel. As a result, the cover stays at an angle. Hence, it creates a virtual slide for the debris which cannot get into the gutter. Forced by gravity and by the wind, 99.9% of the debris falls down to the ground.
The gutter protector uses the forces of nature to make self-cleaning part of the protection process. You will not have to go up a ladder and stay up on it for hours until you scrape off the last piece of wet vegetation sticking to the inner side of the drain channel. You will stay on the ground and have the peace of mind that your house is protected from the rainwater and that you are not at risk of an injury.
The Gutter Protector Eliminates the Risk of Ladder Accidents and Injuries
Did you know that over 40 per cent of the ladder accidents in Australia occur in private homes? What is even more shocking is the fact that two-thirds of all accidents resulted in fractures and hospitalisation. You would certainly not want to become part of these sad statistics.
One way to avoid getting into an accident and getting hurt is to install a gutter protector system. It will eliminate the need to clean the drain channel from debris. You seldom have to clean the protector cover itself. It is quite strong and durable and can resist the effects of the elements for years to come.
Installing a gutter protector system will reduce your roof maintenance tasks and costs. More importantly, it will reduce your risk of falling from a ladder and getting injured. These are just some of the major benefits that you will enjoy with such a system in place.
