The project at a residential property in Hastings, Victoria, presented a unique set of challenges and requirements. This home frequently battled the common issue of clogged gutters due to leaves and debris from surrounding trees, leading to water overflow and the burdensome need for constant gutter cleaning. The property featured a distinctive corrugated roof with Stratco gutters, which sported a monument COLORBOND® colour. We advised our installation partners to address the functional aspects of preventing debris accumulation and the aesthetic aspect, ensuring any installed gutter guard solutions blended seamlessly with the existing roof and gutter design.

Upon a thorough evaluation, we advised our TuffMesh™ Aluminium material. This high-performance solution was ideally suited to the task at hand. It could filter out fine debris while featuring directional holes to prevent water sheeting during heavy downpours. To complement the property’s aesthetics, we chose a monument-coloured mesh and clips to harmonize with the corrugated Colorbond Woodlands Grey® roof and Manor Red trims ensuring the installation did not detract from the property’s visual appeal. In total, 102 metres of TuffMesh™ Aluminium were meticulously installed by our team. The outcome of this project was twofold: it significantly reduced the property’s maintenance needs by preventing gutter clogging. It enhanced the home’s curb appeal with thoughtful and cohesive design integration.
