Gutter Cleaning & Roof Inspection

Butler Plumbing – Roof Plumber in Melbourne

Book a gutter clean with Butler Plumbing this Autumn

Autumn days are wonderful – the warm glow of the late day sun, snuggling up in warm clothes, and the beautiful colours of autumn leaves. But going into the wetter weather with a full season of autumn leaves blocking your gutter could be a costly mistake. Your gutters collect a build up of leaves and debris that can block your gutters and drains. By having a roof plumber in Melbourne clean your gutters and unblock stormwater you are protecting and extending the life of your building. It will also avoid costly property damage and major inconvenience caused by roof leaks and flooding gutters.

During Autumn, when the leaves are falling, is the best time to get a gutter clean before Winter arrives with its short, cold, and wet days. Our roof plumbers based in Fitzroy can provide gutter cleaning services in Melbourne, Collingwood, Clifton Hill and surrounds.

We guarantee having your roof and gutters cleaned professionally will improve the life of your roofing and reduce the stress of property maintenance. We will even pop you in our scheduled maintenance register to send you a reminder when your next maintenance is due.

This Autumn, book a gutter clean and we’ll also provide a FREE roof inspection report!

The roof inspection will include one of our licensed and certified roof plumbers undertaking an extensive visual assessment of your roof, looking for any signs of water penetration, rust, structural issues and poor workmanship. Our inspections include photos and are comprehensive. We provide thorough feedback on the condition of your roof and gutter, and provide practical, clear next steps for further works if required.

Why should I clean my Gutters?

When gutters and downpipes are blocked with leaves and debris, rain water may not drain properly.  Water will overflow causing damage to both inside and outside your property.  Regular maintenance can be completed easily and will save stress and money in the long run.  

Benefits of maintaining a clean gutter include:

  1. Peace of mind – a flood or roof leak can spiral out of control, causing major inconvenience and damage to your property. An issue as simple as a tennis ball blocking a down pipe can result in a significant amount of water overflowing into a property causing damage to plaster, flooring, and precious possessions. Gain peace of mind by avoiding this damage.
  2. Maintains the look of your home or workplace and protects your investment by avoiding structural problems caused by roof leaks and poor drainage.
  3. Extends the lifespan of your roof – identifying small problems such as surface rust or loose nails and removing prior to them causing larger problems means you can keep your roof intact for longer.
  4. Avoid pest problems – by clearing your gutters and blocking entry to your roof you can prevent rodents, birds, and possums from making a home in your gutter.

Why you should hire a professional gutter cleaner?

You may consider cleaning your gutters yourself, but it can be a challenging and potentially dangerous job. Climbing a ladder and working at heights, particularly when you are inexperienced has significant risks. Hiring professionals comes with many advantages:

  • We have the best equipment on hand to clean hard to reach areas.
  • Climbing ladders and roofs can be dangerous. We are aware of these risks and take all necessary safety precautions.
  • We have convenient times available to work around your schedule so you can go about your daily activities with minimal interruptions.
  • We have expert knowledge and will carry out a thorough inspection and report back on the condition of your gutters and roof.
  • We have the appropriate insurance.

How Much Will The Gutter Clean Cost?

How much gutter cleaning costs depends on a number of factors. Each job will vary, requiring a different level of labour and expertise, which in turn will impact the price.

Factors include:-

  • Size of the roof and length of the gutters.
  • Access considerations and safety concerns.
  • Condition of the roof and amount of debris.
  • The type of roofing and the slope of the roof.

However to give you an indication – a typical single storey building will be around $415 – $460 excluding GST.

I have been using Butler Plumbing for years now. It is always easy to contact them and their plumbers turn up when they are scheduled to arrive. Repairs are always done professionally, and communication is excellent.

It was all excellent, from the initial phone call to the service person who came and checked my gas water heater, discussed it with me and then replaced the heater. A very good efficient and pleasant experience.

I dealt with Steve and Aaron in the process of getting a new hot water system. They were prompt, reliable and knowledgeable. Aaron completed the installation, he was on time, tidy, and a really nice guy to deal with. He seemed very experienced, was thorough, and was happy to answer any questions I had.

I would recommend Butler Plumbing

I was lucky enough to have Keelar ,(hope I am spelling that right) fix my bathroom tap, a problem plaguing me for quite some time. He calmly resolved the issue and even cleaned up the excess mould. Highly recommend these guys!
