Gutter cleaning is a vital part of any buildings maintenance program – particularly when a building is surrounded by trees. A lack of gutter cleaning results in overflow during heavy rain – causing leaks into eaves and roof voids. Over time gutters will rust out – this is caused by the rotten debris and dirt holding moisture against the metal for extended periods of time.
JSJ Roofing stress that it is important a roofer carries out the gutter cleaning. Our reasoning for this is:
- Roofers are certified and insured to work at heights.
- Roofers are experienced in using fall restraint harness systems to comply with WH&S Regulations.
- Roofers know where to walk on the roof in order to avoid causing additional damage. Damage may include breaking roof tiles or denting roof sheets.
- Roofers can identify any potential leaks and maintenance required whilst on the roof. They can also conduct roof inspection reports if required.
