Should I install gutter mesh or leaf guard?

Many of our customers want to know if they should install a gutter mesh product.

While we prefer regular cleaning over mesh, the quick answer is… it depends. Depends on what?

Asking our team for advice is the best way, but please see our ‘pros and cons’ list below.

There are three main issues:

  1. Cost (see pros and cons list below)
  2. Trees – the types of trees surrounding your home. Small leaves and pine needles can still enter the gutter through some products. We often have to remove mesh products which have allowed debris underneath, and the gutters have blocked.
  3. Quality of the product, many products fail.

While we prioritize cleaning over mesh, some roofs need such regular cleaning that a gutter mesh product is required.

Unlike many companies, we don’t just install the product and leave. Because we continue to service your property, we know which product will work best for your roof’s specific needs.
Continued servicing can be easily organized for you. We are happy to supply you with quotations or programmed maintenance ideas that will save you time and money.
