Unprotected gutters can provide a convenient entry point to your warm and inviting roof space, which then becomes a nesting site and food source for a host of common household pests such as birds, possums, rats, mice and snakes. Installing a Blue Mountain Mesh gutter guard (also known as gutter mesh) provides a long term solution to solve the issue of unwanted pests. A Blue Mountain Mesh all-steel gutter guard forms a physical barrier to prevent pests from entering your roof space. It is strong enough to withstand attack from even the most determined pests – who can be highly territorial and aggressive when it comes to getting back into their nesting grounds.
Keep unwanted visitors out of your roof and gutters
Nobody enjoys unwanted visitors in their home – particularly when they have a tendency to make a mess, destroy your peace and quiet, damage your house and possibly even make you sick! But that’s exactly the issue faced by thousands of Australians every year trying to rid their homes of common household pests and intruders.
The cost to remove these unwanted pests from your home – or to fix the damage they leave behind – can easily run in to the thousands of dollars. Yet while many people will get their homes treated for pests, they often overlook the source of the problem, and it’s only a matter of time before their unwanted friends return.
Why protect the gutters of your home?
Unprotected gutters provide a convenient entry point to your warm and inviting roof space, which then becomes a nesting site and food source for a host of common household pests such as birds,
possums, rats, mice and snakes.
Having unwanted pests around your home is not only annoying and expensive; it can also pose serious health risks too. Gutters clogged with debris and leaf matter can lead to pooled water, providing the perfect breeding ground for the deadliest pest of all – mosquitoes.
Installing high quality, all-steel gutter guards can help protect your property and family’s health by cutting off access to your roof (e.g. for possums, rats and mice who use your roof space for shelter or breeding) and removing the source of food (e.g. for snakes who will enter your roof to feed on other pests).
If you’ve experienced problems with possums, birds or other pests making a home for themselves in your roof, using your gutters as their front door, you’ll know how important it is to invest in gutter protection. If you haven’t, take action before any problems arise, because the consequences can be very serious for your health, well-being and the value of your home.
Gutter protection can prevent pests from taking hold in your gutters, and offer many other valuable health and safety benefits, giving you peace of mind around your home all year round.
