Hi, My name is Neil Welsh and together with my wife, Dawn, we are proud to own and operate the Melbourne Franchise for Gutter Knight. Gutter Knight is a premium gutter guard supply and installation business that prides itself on; service, product and quality workmanship. Living in Melbourne allows us to be close to both of our families and our two young adult children whilst ensuring that we can focus on our business and deliver great service to our clients.

For the last fifteen years we have owned and built a number of successful businesses within the Jim’s Group. We owned Jim’s Test & Tag (Australia and New Zealand) and had almost two hundred franchisees across both countries. I also spent time as the Chief Operating Officer of the Jim’s Group and was a Director and Partner of the Group with Jim Penman and James Jacka. In recent years we owned Jim’s Mobile Phones. My wife, Dawn, has supported the back office of these businesses since our inception and has been critical to our success.

We are now committed to the Gutter Knight model and have been extremely impressed with the opportunity, processes and the honesty and integrity of the franchisors, Brian Brown and David Myles. The Gutter Knight model presents great value to both potential franchisees and more importantly to our clients.

Our service model includes a free onsite inspection, measure and quote and an aerial photograph of your roof. We discuss and demonstrate the product that best suits your needs and ensure that our installation teams are well trained, insured and understanding of your expectations.

We are looking forward to helping you to identify the best gutter protection solution for your home or business.

Many thanks for a job well done. I was impressed with the level of professionalism shown by you and your staff.

Aside from the excellent communications and obvious competency of your team, there was a level of care and respect for my property. Having dealt with many trades over the years I value this attribute highly. I wish Gutter Knight every success for the future, and would unreservedly recommend your company.

It has been a while since the gutter guard was installed but we just had our first storm of only 13 millimetres this week and I would like to say what a great improvement over the old plastic gutter guard system we had.
With the Gutter Knight Aluminium Mesh installed I have noticed a greatly reduced amount of vegetation staying up on the roof. As you know we live in a rural environment and with the old system I had to manually clean the roof every 4 weeks. But now very little stays on the roof. This is a great bonus as it reduces a possible fire hazard but now lets me have more time to do the things I like, instead of cleaning off the roof.
As we do not have town water, we rely on our rainwater for everything and with the old system I had to clean out the leaf traps once every half hour while it was raining as it would fill up with vegetation and block rainwater from going into the water tank. This is now a thing of the past, only a small amount, about 5% if that, compared with the old system, making it into the leaf traps. I would like to say that Gutter Knight is the best value for money investment and piece of mind improvement I have made to our home. Your professional team did a wonderful job, their honesty and dedication to perfection in fixing the little faults with my guttering while installing the system was greatly appreciated. That workmanship has given me more rainwater into my tank and a great piece of mind knowing I will not have any gutter issues for a long long time. And after they had finished, you couldn’t even tell they had been there. I would like to say thank you to you and your team for a fantastic job. I am more than happy to refer you to all our family and friends. Again thanks for a wonderful job.

Kindest Regards
