How gutter protection works

A gutter guard is fixed to the roof and fitted over the gutter to prevent leaves and other debris from entering the guttering system.

Over-the-gutter systems that form a physical barrier to prevent leaves and debris from entering gutters offer a long term solution to minimise the risk of gutters flooding. 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.

Ski-slope or over the gutter design

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 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 need for more regular cleaning and maintenance).

 Why install Blue Mountain Mesh?

+ Gutters are an important part of a building and regular checks are recommended.  Sometimes the problem can’t be seen from the ground; and issues arising from a blocked gutter or pooled water won’t always be noticed 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. Blue Mountain Mesh is manufactured using hot dipped, zinc coated, oven-baked, corrosion-resistant, non-combustible steel. It is strong enough to withstand the most intense rain and hailstorms and meets updated Australian Standards for building in bushfire-prone areas.

+ Ensure the 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.
