Mr Inspector is a qualified building inspector in Melbourne and the above photograph was taken during one of his building inspections in Brighton.

Although relatively easy to rectify, debris and blocked gutters can lead to rust in the gutters and down pipes and then possibly $5000 plus to replace everything.  Stagnant water and air will cause rust and keeping these areas clean of debris will save you money over time.  There are numerous small business in Melbourne that come out and clean your gutters for a reasonable fee.
