We use meshes of varying sizes depending on the roof and gutter requirements. This webpage shows photos of our gutter protection mesh and also one of our bird proofing meshes. The metal mesh is a heavy duty fencing mesh that we have cut out to block a pigeon entry point in a commercial roof. The featured image shows us protecting the entry of a large downpipe that has a pigeon entry point deeper inside.
There was a flock of pigeons nesting inside the roof, this pest bird activity contributes to gutter blockage as the birds will bring nest debris with them and also defecate on the roof. Before installing the pest bird barrier we also cleared the gutters and downpipes of blockages caused by bird fouling. In the case of pigeon netting we use a larger sized mesh because pigeons are larger birds, it is important to ensure that leaf debris doesn’t get caught in this mesh. Regular sized holes of gutter protection mesh may be too small for this application.
The presence of pigeons does millions of dollars of damage to buildings across the world every year. Pigeons are introduced pests in Australia, the public is allowed to eradicate them humanely. We are able to locate pigeon entry points once we have inspected your property. For leaf guard installations we only use plastic mesh as this fits the gutter more snugly than metal materials. For high quality leaf guard installations and more information on those meshes, see our main gutter protection website.
