You need to choose the right kind of profile for your gutter guard, depending on the type of roof you have. There are three main gutter guards available for corrugated roofs, tiled roofs and guards that fit into your gutter. Make sure you measure the length of your gutters before you buy the guards so you purchase the correct amount.
Gutter guards generally come in two types of material – metal or plastic. If you live in a bushfire prone area, use metal gutter guards. They provide better protection from embers that can start a fire in your gutters. Metal guards come in galvanised zinc or powder coated options. Check the gutter guards you choose are fire rated and comply with Australian Standards.
Installing gutter guards is a quick and easy D.I.Y. project. You will need a cordless drill and self-tapping screws. Follow the instructions on your gutter guard packaging.
