Hey Mark, Thanks a great questions I have been asked many times by other fellow Australians. So here's the deal. Clogged gutters are among the prime reasons for fires in both the residential and commercial real estate sector. Bush fires are a common and disastrous events in places like Australia where the climate is harsh. Even in Sydney, one of the most populated cities in the country, the temperature often exceeds the bearable maximum and the air humidity is at its lowest. Despite being a coastal city, it's a region where bush fires can occur and homeowners need to be aware of the techniques that must be applied during the seasonal temperature peaks. Reducing the dry vegetation around the property is an essential part of preventing any bush fire. Yet, there are many flammable materials and items which can be found outdoors and the clogged gutters are one of them.To prevent an unexpected ignition, homeowners should always keep their gutters dirt and grime-free. While it is recommended that the removal of leafs and dirt should be done by a professional gutter cleaning team, homeowners can do still do it themselves while following the local regulations. In Sydney, for example, there are specific rules for water use in Sydney and working from heights should be complied with the state's requirements.In severe situations with a high risks of a fire, gutters must be filled with water to provide additional security for the building. Keypoints Here are the prime reasons you should take care of your gutters:
  • to prevent water damage
  • to prevent fire harardz
  • to prevent pest infestations

Technically it is possible to build your own gutter. I would do it using PVC piping. But frankly, I don't think it's worth it because getting the measurement exact could be a problem. Plus, PVC can be very heavy so you might not want to put that much strain on your roof.

Hello Stephen. I do understand what you are talking about with your flashing. Your supplier of the standing seam metal should have similar metal flashing to use on any of your roof flashing points. There is a process to install flashing on a chimney or any other protrusions, If you are still interested post some pictures of what you have and I will explain the best I can. It takes years of experience to do some flashings especially on standing seam metal.

first you need a ladder with a stabilizer bar. Once you're up there you will see that most likely they clip on to the outer part of the inside of the gutter.push down the hanger until the other end it's against the fascia you then will need to drill a screw through a hole in the hangar that will be against the fascia will need a drill with an extension depending of what type of screw is being careful as it is very slipperyand dangerous to go on ladders when there might also want to run down to a hardware store and ad additional hangers. If they come in a pack they will most likely have instructions or they can help you in the hardware store try Home Depot

Here is a company I found on Yelp with good ratings. They should be able to come out to your house and check out your gutters.

You don't say what the problem is.

Steel beams will need to be used if you want open space with no poles. Laminated beams can also be used but support poles will have to be added. Build a truss roof over top and do away with the flat roof.

absolutely, if you don't do it you will have to tear up the shingles later and put it in when the roof starts leaking around the chimney
