The property located in Romsey, VIC was plagued by problems stemming from leaves, debris, and other materials that frequently clogged its gutters. This not only caused water overflow but also increased the risk of damage to the surrounding areas. In such persistent issues, the intended solution would prevent the gutters from clogging while ensuring seamless integration with the property’s aesthetics.

Upon consultation with Aussie Gutter Protection, we selected TuffMesh™ Ember Guard as the best-fit solution. Considering the fine debris surrounding the property, the 1.6 mm hole aperture of the TuffMesh™ Ember Guard would be a more suitable choice over the 3.5 mm hole size of the TuffMesh™ Aluminium product. This choice ensured that even the finest debris would be prevented from entering the gutters, providing an optimal solution tailored to the property’s unique challenges.

ScreenTech, renowned for its top-tier products and dedicated support to tradespeople, builders, and architects, suggested the use of TuffMesh™ Ember Guard. This product was recommended not just for its durability but also for its longevity as a gutter guard solution.

The Woodland Grey® mesh matched the property’s roof, and the same colour was selected for the trim to complement the guttering. As it was a tile installation, no other fittings and fixtures were required. This ensured a seamless and stylish finish that was aesthetically pleasing and functional. With the diligent work of Aussie Gutter Protection’s technicians, 92 metres of TuffMesh™ Ember Guard was carefully installed, guaranteeing a secure fit.

As a result, the TuffMesh™ material now allows water to flow unhindered into the gutters, effectively preventing leaves, debris, and other materials from causing blockages. With this installation, the property now boasts a beautifully fitted TuffMesh™ Ember Guard system, which protects the gutters and ensures water flows freely, significantly reducing any potential damage risks.
