There are many reasons to have a gutter guard installed, the primary one being to prevent the build up of leaves in gutters and downpipes.
Did you know that a high quality steel gutter guard product will also:-
- protect your home from pest infestation (birds and possums),
- protect your home from hail damage, and
- if you live in a bushfire zone, can reduce the likelihood of ember attack.
There are a range of products available but the old adage, “you get what you pay for” is really relevant to gutter guard. The cheaper products tend to break down under the harsh effects of the Australian UV rays.
Certainly, the type that tuck into the gutter leaving a small gap between the gutter and the roof are pointless – you will still need to remove the leaves from the gutter as they will become wedged in the gap.
For a seamless finish, a Colorbond color matched mesh is ideal with color matched componentry (saddles, trims and screws).
