Home Living : April 6th 2010
2 HLW - HOME LIVING: WEST, Tuesday, April 6, 2010 Smart ways » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING With weather changes, experts are urging homeowners to protect their roof gutters against heavy rain. Blocked or clogged gutters can cause over- flowing of water into internal roof areas. Rain Harvesting managing director Gareth Horton said blocked gutters can prevent water flowing into downpipes and when this happens rainwater redirects on to the house fascia, ceiling areas, inner walls and window frames. ''With significant overflow, rainwater can soak into fascia boards and other structures which can eventually rot and may require costly repairs,'' he said. ''Simple measures to protect critical areas where rainwater can enter will minimise damage caused by severe storms and cyclones." Mr Horton said rain heads could help prevent debris from entering downpipes, helping to eliminate blockages in gutters. Products like Leaf Eater and Leaf Beater rain heads could easily be installed on downpipes and incorporate screens that deflect leaves and debris. In addition to fitting rain heads to downpipes to improve water flow, Mr Horton said installing a gutter mesh would prevent leaves and debris from building up in gutters, allowing rain to flow freely to downpipes and away from the critical roof area. Manufactured from rust-resistant aluminium and steel, the mesh is attached to the outside edge of the gutter and secured to the roof. The system creates a self-shedding platform from which leaves and debris can blow free, rather than collecting in gutters and blocking drains. Mr Horton said a gutter mesh system could also protect buildings and extend the lifespan of roof gutters by preventing corrosion and rusting. ''By planning ahead, residents can reduce the likelihood of sustaining storm damage to their home and even improve the longevity of its structures," Mr Horton said.
