With Windy weather it is imperative to monitor and prepare for dangers. Falling branches become deadly with extreme wind force. Just as with high fire temperature risks extreme wind can be deadly, 

A few standard safety precautions for high wind days are:

1.Bring items that can be blown away or cause damage inside, store in you garage or storage room.

2.Tie down or remove from and around your home loose metal parts that can cause damage or harm.

3.If you know there are high winds forecast get a tree specialist to trim down branches hanging over the roof that can damage your home.

4. If a thunderstorm is also forecast make sure your gutters are clean to move water away from  your home. Get a Gutter Guard specialist to clean around your gutters.

5.Stay indoors and don't drive in high dangerous wind unless you must.

6.If you know that thunderstorms are going to be accompanying high winds make sure you have gas for bbq and candles the incase of a blackout.

7.Know your plan in an emergency write down your emergency numbers.

8.Make sure all cell phones are fully charged.

NSW is also experiencing a very dry spell, even though it is cold there is a very real Fire Danger, so making sure your gutters are cleaned by a professional, this is very important for resisting ember attack.

Winter 2017 ???

Is this winter? What beautiful weather we are having at the moment, not a cloud in the sky, warm
winter weather.
No rain either so the farmers and avid gardeners are going to feel this. I don't know about you but our hedges think its spring I have already had to cut my lawn a few more times than last year. Time to make sure your home is ready for the rain when it comes. clean out those gutters and downpipes, get a leafguard installer to put in some gutter guard for you, and sit back and take advantage of our great landscape.

Summer reduce Fuel for Fire

Cleanup for Summer

Please see video below:

The last few months have encouraged growth of tall grasses, small bushes and trees. Which means this  coming summer has plenty of Fuel for Fire. 
As a responsible home owner you need to make sure your home is fire protected, as this will lower your chance of becoming a statistic of fire damage. 
We have not had these conditions for years in Australia, the fire departments are concerned, as should you as a home owner, especially those living in rural fire prone areas.

  • Give your homes the best chance to survive a fire.
  • Clear out your gutters, 
  • Clear around your home of leaf litter and tall overgrown shrubs and grasses.
  • Keep all exit points clear and accessible. 
  • Have an exit plan, 
  • Call you local Fire department for guidelines around your home and suburb.
  • Be prepared

Your roof is vulnerable with embers being able to travel for miles. 
The first choice in your Gutter Guard needs to be a fire rated product for your homes roof.

A testimonial from a satisfied customer

I have recently had the gutters on my home fitted with Leaf Smart Gutter Guard, and it was Julian Heslop who came to give me a quote. After he worked out the cost, and I was very happy at the price. Julian said " you have two branches over your house from your neighbour tree, I will cut these back for you , also I noticed the lead flashing has come out of your chimney, I will fix this also, at no extra cost to you. Julian cleaned out the guttering before he applied the Gutter Guard, and he did an excellent job.  I found Julian a very friendly person, easy to talk to, and very obliging. I have no hesitation in recommending him and Leaf Smart Gutter Guard.
Regards Barry 

Before and After

Sunday, 26 June 2016

July and August,

The windy wintery months: In the early winter months, problems with vermin, excess leaves and branches falling, can get on top of you.. keep reading for simple steps to get on top of this now.

  • Look up: Check for weak points in tree branches around your home. Look for any safety issues where children play or where cars are parked. The last thing you want is for heavy branches to cause damage or worse.
  • Sweep, rake and blow:Keep your paved area free from leaves that can become slippery with cold rain, 
  • Slippery when wet: Your paved area and driveway can get mossy as well which could mean falls got to your nearest hardware store to advice you on the best product for this.

Be aware of these challenges around time of the year, keep on top of cleaning chores around the home.

  • Roofer: Get a Roofer to check for leaks after a heavy bout of rain and wind this can effect your especially tiles and shingles.

Guttering gutter Guard: Make sure your guttering is not clogged with leaves or branches that may effect drainage away from your home.this would be a good time to install gutter guard to your roof.

Vermin and Birds, Yes its that time again when vermin birds want to take refuge in your nice warm roof. 
Keep them out with a Steel Gutter Guard that they cannot chew or claw through. If they get in you may not get rid of them until the warmer months, so in this case, prevention is better that cure.
