Gutter guard (also referred to as gutter protection, leaf guard) is a product that has been developed to prevent damage and the inconvenience caused by clogged gutters in residential and commercial buildings.
Buildings without gutter guard typically have exposed gutters that catch and drain rainwater from roofs. Gutters are connected to downspouts and channel water down and away from a building to protect its structure. Over time, exposed gutters receive a build-up of leaves and debris that clogs gutters, which prevents water flow. If left unattended, the build-up of water and debris can cause irreversible damage to gutters including corrosion, as well as damage to the buildings walls and foundations. Preventing this damage requires regular gutter cleaning, or the installation of gutter guards.
Gutter guards reduce the need for regular gutter cleaning as they help prevent the build up of leaves and debris, allowing the gutters to maximise water follow and function as they are intended. They are most commonly an add-on to an existing gutter system that involves attaching or inserting material over the exposed gutter, to prevent debris entry whilst allowing water to easily flow through.
Don’t Risk Your Life Or Injury
Everyone knows that cleaning their gutters is a tedious and often dangerous job.
Thousands of Australians each year are hospitilised or killed while climbing ladders when attempting to maintain their gutters or home.
In recent years, we have all been touched by the tragic bushfires throughout various parts of Australia, some of them on our own backdoor.
Gutter screening prevents the build-up of leaves and other debris in your gutters, reducing the risk of embers starting a fire by falling into the leaves on your roof. Ember attack is one of the main sources of house burning down in a bushfire.
Our range of aluminium screening products is designed to completely shield the gutters to prevent the build-up of potential fuel for embers to ignite. Our screens have been used on fire refuges and fire stations around Australia.
Enjoy Clean Tank Water!
Our gutter screening system keeps gutters free from the build-up of leaves and other material which can breakdown in your gutters and produce toxins such as tannin, potentially contaminating water in your tanks.
If you rely on the water in your tanks to be clean and fresh, you can be assured our food safe gutter screening materials will provide non tainted water over the expanse of your rain catchment area (roof).
