How  Blue Mountain Mesh works

A gutter guard (also known as a leaf guard or gutter mesh) is designed to solve the problem of debris in your gutters by preventing debris from entering the gutter in the first place. There are various types of gutter protection systems on the market today.

Over-the-gutter systems (like Blue Mountain Mesh) that form a physical barrier to prevent leaves and debris from entering gutters offer a long term solution to minimise the risk of gutters building up leaves or blocking with debris. Typically constructed using either steel or aluminium mesh, this form of gutter protection ensures year round low-maintenance protection that keeps gutters from getting blocked, preventing flooding of eaves, ceiling and wall cavities; and extra protection from hail and flooding rains during storms.

The ski-slope design of over-the-gutter gutter protection systems ensures that leaves and debris are blown off the roof through wind action whilst water is drawn through the mesh guard into the gutter. This form of gutter protection is highly superior to other in-gutter systems (e.g. gutter coils, foam or brushes) which don’t stop debris from entering the gutter and can lead to a myriad of other problems (clogging, dislodging and risk of falls from DIY installation and need for more regular cleaning and maintenance).

 

Why install Blue Mountain Mesh?

Homeowners who have installed gutter protection say that the guard prevents gutters from becoming blocked and they have peace of mind knowing they are protected from the risks of property damage, and more serious personal threats, at any time of year but particularly during storms.

+ Your gutters are an important part of your home and regular checks are recommended.  Sometimes you can’t see the problem from the ground; and you won’t always notice issues arising from a blocked gutter or pooled water until the damage is done.

+ Choose your gutter guard system wisely. Over-gutter systems made from steel are manufactured to suit a range of environmental conditions and offer the best protection from highly determined, territorial pests like Myna Birds and possums. Blue Mountain Mesh is manufactured using hot dipped, zinc coated, oven-baked, corrosion-resistant, non-combustible steel. It is strong enough to withstand to most intense rain and hailstorms and meets updated Australian Standards for building in bushfire-prone areas.

+ Ensure your gutter guard is fitted by an accredited installer, and comes with a warranty from a trusted manufacturer.

Patented fixing systems

Blue Mountain All Steel Gutter Mesh suits all roof types and is installed using a variety of patented fixing systems only available from Blue Mountain Mesh, depending on the roof surface.  These systems ensure a wide section of mesh gutter guard is fitted well up onto the roof surface to ensure a continuation of the downward slope of the mesh / roof surface.  This makes it easier for leaves and debris to be blown off the mesh gutter guard by gentle wind action.
