Gutter guards (also called leaf guard or gutter protection) are products that are installed into roof plumbing systems to prevent damage and to reduce the need for frequent gutter cleaning. Gutter protection meshes stop leaves and larger unwanted objects from entering but will allow water to pass.
Why Install Gutter Protection?
Without gutter protection your gutters can fill up very rapidly. The presence of leaves and tree branches is the greatest cause of blocked gutters. Gutters are hung horizontally so this leaf build up will remain in the gutters. Eventually the downpipes become completely clogged and water will start back flowing into your roof or overflowing onto the ground. This water flooding can damage your building from the ground up. Collect cleaner rain water and increase the value of your guttering!
Triple-G™ Gutter Mesh
Our Triple-G™ gutter mesh is a proud Australian invention. The result of the copolymer mix of high density polyethylene and carbon black is the toughest non-metal gutter mesh ever made. We choose to use non-metal gutter protection mesh because it fits more neatly to the various gutter profiles. With a minimum 25 year life expectancy, Triple-G gutter mesh is highly UV resistant and will not break down like cheaper materials.
- High Density Polyethylene top
- Carbon Black under strands for added strength
- Tougher heavy duty mesh, weighs almost 1000 grams per square metre (1000gsm)
- Hole size 2.7mm by 4.7mm, perfect hole size to minimise the entry of smaller objects like pine needles
- Under strand thickness 2.0mm
- Top strand thickness 1.5mm
Gutter Protection Installation
With Grayson’s preferred Triple-G method of gutter guard installation there is no need to move tiles or drill holes in your roof, this makes it easier to remove the mesh and re-clean your gutters. Our finer mesh design means more debris is trapped, and leaves are generally blown off the roof by the wind — plus, our leaf guard will also stop birds from entering your roof.
Our gutter protection installation service includes a complimentary gutter cleaning service (for the area of guttering that is being covered). Before installing our gutter protection, we thoroughly clear your gutters and downpipes for blockage.
Repair and Cleaning of old Gutter Guards
We also clean and repair old gutter guards. Some gutter protection systems are quite difficult to service and require the removal of hundreds of screws. Our staff are experts at removing, cleaning and reattaching old ‘ski slope’ style leaf guards. If necessary we can even add extra screws and patch up any tears or holes in your gutter mesh
