Gutter Guard Services
Flick technicians will first undertake thorough cleaning by removing all leaves and debris in your gutters, valley sections and down pipes before the installation. This enables water to flow through unobstructed and keeps the need to maintain your gutters to a minimum.
Flick Gutter Shield and all accessories and fixings are designed to hold up in the unforgiving Australian climate.
Our method of installation keeps debris and leaves out of the gutters by causing them to be blown off roofs rather than fall into downpipes and gutters. This method is applicable to most types of roofs.
Flick Gutter Shield’s design is visually subtle with colours to match your existing roof, while still offering excellent gutter protection.
A 15-year warranty subject to terms and conditions is offered for the our gutter guard.
We provide an affordable and effective way to prevent possums occupying roofs and also protect your home from enabling these creatures to return to their natural habitat.
We first carry out a home inspection to find any entry points. These entry points are then assessed and proofed. A one-way exit door will then be installed at the entry points by which possums are entering enabling them to leave the area without returning. In our experience, most possums leave within a night or two after the one-way exit door is set up. If it is not possible to install a one-way door on your property, possum traps will be set up so the animals can be captured and removed.
Installing Flick Gutter Shield can then be installed and will prevent the possums from accessing your roof again.
Flick Gutter Shield can be set up around valleys and gutter lines to prevent rodents from making their way beneath tiles or roof sheets. Following successful installation, the roof void will be baited in order to eradicate any remaining rodents.
Female rats can reproduce at an alarming rate, birthing four to six litters each year, with five to ten babies in each. At the age of three months, rats are already old enough to begin reproducing. In a single year, a male and female rat can produce a pack of 400 to 700. Rats eat 10% of their weight in food each day, and on average each devours 30 grams per day. Just five rats can be responsible for 27 litres of urine and 73,000 droppings per annum. It is thus crucial to keep these pests at bay.
Flick Gutter Shield, when set up around valleys and gutter lines, prevents birds from making their way beneath tiles and roof sheets. Following installation, all nesting materials can be removed and insecticidal dust of low toxicity is applied to eradicate bird lice.
Benefits You Enjoy
Gutters Free from Leaves and Debris- When down pipes and gutters get blocked, damage caused by water overflowing onto roofs can be very costly to repair. Water damage caused by moisture building up around roofing timbers like fascia boards requires expensive repairs. The presence of excess water or moisture in the home can also increase the likelihood of infestations by pests like termites. Flick Gutter Shield’s experts will undertake a thorough cleaning of all gutters, box gutters and down pipes before Gutter Shield is installed to prevent the obstruction of storm water, thus extending the durability of your gutters.
- Pest Qualified and Pest Resistant - Our gutter guards are designed to withstand chewing or gnawing by rodents, possums or birds. Our technicians are not only proficient in the installation of gutter protection but also licensed in pest control techniques. This enables them to create a tailored programme that can keep your roof space free of pests and unwanted creatures.
- Do You Know How Clean Your Water Is? The presence of dead animals on your roof, in your gutters or rainwater tanks can contaminate drinking water. Flick Gutter Shield eliminates this problem so you can have peace of mind.
