Maintaining Your Gutters

Mostly high enough you don’t notice them unless you are heading back home and have a different view! Keeping them clean can easily fall off your to do list.

Is the cost of new guttering on the rise?

The cost of new guttering is on the rise, every few months we get an email from our suppliers letting us know that the prices have to go up based on the rising costs of materials.  To really extend the life of your roof, gutters and downpipes you have to maintain them.

How important is it to have clean gutters

Even just removing the debis can really help.  If you have the right sized ladder, feel confident and have time to do so, this part of home maintenance really save you time and money in the long run.  After you have cleaned out the debris, flush the gutters with water to ensure all is functioning correctly.  We recommend this task being completed twice a year.  If you notice that your lush garden is really losing a lot of leaves even in one spot or aspect of your house you might want to consider gutter guards for that part.  Gutter guards need to be kept clean too, if not looked after these can be where the rust begins!

Especially after a period of long rain it will be worth checking on the gutters as moss can grow in them also.  If part of the gutter rusts it can spread quickly to the roof sheets, down pipes and the rest of the gutters.

Tools Needed to DIY

* gloves

* bucket

* ladder

* hose – check all unclogged

  • Fantastic Plumbing lived up to their name. On time, polite, reliable and created confidence in explaining details of my hot water system to one of those husbands who missed the handyman gifts!

    Ian Bridger, Byron

  • Our hot water system was being unpredictable and unreliable, and we weren't sure what the issue was... Conor had it sorted in no time. He was responsive, efficient and helpful - even in the midst of the pre-Splendour rush... We are now enjoying lovely hot water. Thank you!!

    Jacky Morris, Suffolk Park

  • When we recently had a pipe blockage in our investment property in Ballina and our tenant sent us photos we were organizing the fix from NZ. Thankfully we contacted Fantastic Plumbing who located the blockage, jetted it until the pipe was cleared and …. CLEANED UP!!! We were in the process of trying to get a cleaner to the property when Conor sent us photos of the completed work. After speaking to out tenant who couldn’t be happier we saved on the cleaner! If you want no hassels in plumbing do yourself a favour and call Fantastic Plumbing.
