Leaves & other debris gets into gutters and can block down pipes requiring regular cleaning and creating a bushfire hazard.
The Prestige Leaf Guard's new design keeps leaves out of your gutter, and because of its shallow angle, most of the leaves blow off during strong winds. However an occasional clean of excess debris may be required depending how protected your property is to the wind e.g. gum nuts and twigs are not going to blow away, but it takes a long time for the raised filters to clog even in the heaviest leaf conditions. Not only that, the Prestige Leaf Guard has been rated bush fire safe in all area of Australia, thereby protected your home.
