Gutter Knight Melbourne Gutter Guard supplies and professionally installs only the highest quality Aluminium or Steel gutter mesh that suits all types of roof types, heights, and foliage we cover the lot. Having a variety of mesh sizes ranging from 2mm through to 5mm which ensures the perfect solution for your Gutter Guard requirements.
When quoting for you, we always suggest the most appropriate gutter mesh for your job taking into consideration many factors including all the surrounding tree types, type of roofing, guttering material, if bushfires are a potential risk and also if there is a water tank in use.
Part of our service prior to installing our gutter guard; we thoroughly clean out all of your gutters and valleys to ensure they are clean of any leaves and debris before installing your gutter protection making sure it will perform perfectly from day one.
Another great benefit is all our gutter protection mesh is specifically powder coated to suit the colour of your roof and with a matching metal trim for the gutter also, meaning your gutter mesh will not be obtrusive and will blend nicely into your roofline.
Gutter Knight supplies and installs a variety of gutter mesh to suit all types of tiled roofs including concrete, terracotta, masonry and pressed metal tiles like Decramastic.
Valleys and Box Gutters on tiled roofs can also be simply fitted with gutter guard providing full protection for your whole roof.
Our gutter mesh for tiles is installed and secured up and under the base of the second tile and then secured to the front edge of the gutter by using galvanised steel screws and a metal angle trim forming a totally sealed area that easily lets water in but keeps debris, leaves, and vermin out. When installed the gutter guard mesh has a downward slope over the outside edge of your gutters, this makes it easier for debris and leaves to simply slide off or be blown off the roof by the wind.
All our fittings used are powder coated to suit the colour of your roof and gutters, to provide a seamless and neat look.
*On Tiled roofs it is important to have the mesh fully cover over the gutter – some gutter guard systems sit inside the gutter, these systems don’t work as effective because they allow leaves and debris to be trapped between the mesh and roof, plus also providing an area for vermin to enter.
Gutter Knight supplies and installs a variety of gutter mesh to suit all types of metal style roofs including Corrugated, Klip-Lok, Spandek, Trimdek, bullnose (on verandas) and all other types of metal roofing.
Valleys and Box Gutters on metal roofs can also be simply fitted with gutter guard providing full protection for your whole roof.
The gutter mesh is secured to the roof using metal ‘saddles’ (not silicone) that are held in place with galvanised self-sealing rubber topped screws which places downward pressure on the gutter guard mesh to ensure it is secure and tight against the roof so leaves and foreign debris cannot get under the mesh. The other side of the gutter mesh is secured to the gutter edge again by galvanised screws with a metal angle trim that forms an enclosed area that easily lets water in but keeps debris, leaves, and vermin out. This again acts like a ‘ski-slope’ as leaves just slide off or blow off with the wind.
All our fittings and mesh used are powder coated to suit the colour of your roof and gutters, to provide a seamless and neat look.
*On Metal roofs it is important to have the mesh fully cover over the gutter – some gutter guard systems sit inside the gutter, these systems don’t work as effective because they allow leaves and debris to be trapped between the mesh and roof which can over time cause corrosion under the metal roof lip from moisture, also allowing vermin to enter under the gaps.

Safety is our Number One Priority
We take safety extremely seriously. If we deem a roof to be unsafe or dangerous due to roof / structural damage we will not work on it. Installers follow a strict installation and safety guideline when installing leaf guard/gutter protection on your roof, we understand the dangers of being on a roof and our priority is safety for us and all those around. The team is all trained at working at heights which gives you the peace of mind knowing that all safety measures are being followed to ensure you end up with a fantastic leaf-free gutter system while work is performed in a safe manner.
For Commercial jobs, we provide our own SWMS (Safe Work Method Statements) and also perform Risk Assessments prior to starting these jobs. Our team carry roof harnesses equipment with them and are trained in their use.
