This article: how-to-install-the-gutter-meshguard first shows us the function of the mesh guard. The need for this mesh is first suggested by roofing company many years ago. They list the advantages of using gutter meshguard and tell us how to install the mesh guard. The logic design and special way to extend the life of te mesh make the mesh guard different.

 

An open-mesh guard for roof gutters which fits over the downspout in the leader and prevents the clogging of the downspout by leaves and other debris. The guard is hinged at two locations in order to permit the device to clear the usual roof shingle overhang of the gutters when it is desired to empty the same on the ground. A pole is provided for manually emptying the guard and additionally serves the function of scraping the leaves and other debris from the gutters.

 

The need for a gutter guard that was simple to fit, fireproof, strengthened gutters, reduced gutter cleaning to insignificant levels and stopped vegetation growing in the silt was realized by roofing company six years ago when his company was contracted by strata managements to remove, clean and replace mesh and other gutter guard systems on their clients home units.

They set about designing and testing a revolution in gutter guard design and On Guard is the result of such a thought process. Not only did On Guard eliminate the installation difficulty factor, it provided other benefits that have proven a blessing to home owners. Not the least of these blessings being that On Guard:-

· Improves collected rainwater quality
· Laughs at burning debris
· Seals access to roof cavities via gutters to birds & vermin
· Self cleans [albeit pitch dependent]
· Elegant look [invisible from street level]
· Copes with the heaviest of downpours
· Matching Colorbond [30 year rust warranty]
· Profile cut to fit all roof/gutter types [even box & valley gutters]
· Eliminates vegetation growth [no sunlight = no growth]
· South Australian design and manufacture
· Panels removed in seconds for silt flush

The logic behind the design of On Guard is that it makes the front edge of the gutter and the roof in effect one piece. No more can leaves, pine needles or pollen block up gutters. However to extend the life of your gutters it is recommended that a periodic check be made by the removal of a panel to check the silt build up. A flush out in the winter when the silt is soft could add 15 years to the life of the gutters. Usually only one panel the furthest end from the downpipe needs to be removed to achieve this.
