When it comes to using a gutter guard like GutterMesh to prevent pests from taking up residence in your guttering, 000 are your local Melbourne experts. It is particularly efficient for bird proofing your roof.
In Melbourne and surrounding suburbs, it is not uncommon for homeowners and businesses to find that animals have taken made their guttering home. But having creatures use your guttering as a home is potentially dangerous and could lead to severe damage to your property.
One of the main problems is that animal nests prevent guttering from doing its job. Guttering is supposed to transport water away from the house and down to the drains. But if it is blocked up with twigs and other nesting materials, then the water cannot flow freely and may begin to tip down the side of your building and into the foundations. Damp walls and wet, weak foundations are difficult and expensive to fix, so something you’ll undoubtedly want to avoid.
The other main problem is that animals can use your guttering as a base camp to further infiltrate your property. Pests can easily make their way from your guttering into the roof cavity and other areas and set up more nests deeper into your property, marking the start of an infestation. Guttering, therefore, is often an entryway for more serious issues further down the road.
Why Is A Gutter Guard Needed?
One of the problems with traditional solutions, like spikes, is that they require a lot of maintenance to keep in good working order. But now there’s a new product called gutter mesh which does not require the same level of maintenance. A gutter guard is a covering for your guttering which allows water to enter the gutter but keeps creatures out.
With GutterMesh, you can prevent snakes, possums, rats, mice and birds from getting into your guttering and using it as a home. The mesh is chew-proof, blocking even the most determined creatures from making their way into your guttering and damaging your property.
GutterMesh is one of the best preventive measures you can implement on your property to cut the costs of pest damage. While there are some setup costs, you won’t have to pay to clean up mess or damage to the internal structure of your home. You’ll also avoid removal expenses, such as setting traps or animal relocation. Gutter mush is, therefore, a highly cost-effective way of keeping animals out of your home.
A Gutter Guard Is Perfect For Bird Proofing
Many nesting birds set up their nests in guttering during the dry season. They do this because this is when they lay their eggs and their chicks hatch. Problems occur, however, when the birds abandon their nests in the wet season, leaving debris that clogs your gutters.
Gutters that don’t work correctly cannot drain, leading to over spill which can damage the walls and foundations of your property.
A gutter mesh is, therefore, the ideal long-term solution to this problem. It prevents animals from dragging nesting materials into your guttering, while at the same time preventing passive leaf fall from causing issues too.
There are many types of gutter mesh available on the market, including mesh made of steel and aluminium. A gutter mesh is durable and long-lasting and doesn’t affect the appearance of your property.
