How to Increase Gutter Longevity and Reduce Your Work Load by Adding Top Guard® Leaf Guard to Your Roof


Are you sick of cleaning out your gutters after every winter? You’re not alone. Gutter cleaning is one of a long list of home maintenance jobs that must be done, no matter how tedious and inconvenient it is. Thankfully, some clever people in the roofing industry were able to identify the issue and come up with a solution: Leaf Guard. Several companies have produced products at varying price points and levels of quality, but Top Guard® were able to take it a step further and create a product designed to withstand the harsh Australian climate. So, what is Leaf Guard and how can it help you?

Leaves and debris in your home’s guttering system can lead to many problems, such as premature rusting of the gutters, overflow causing timber damage, exposing your home to ember attack during bushfire season, and posing a potential safety risk to yourself when cleaning out your gutters. On top of that, gutters serve as an entry point to your roof for birds and vermin, that can cause you more headaches than a whole packet of Panadol® can fix. This is where Leaf Guard can save you a whole lot of hassle and allow you to spend your time focusing on other things.

Top Guard® Leaf Guard is the logical and practical solution to your gutter and valley protection. It works by attaching one edge of the mesh to the front lip of the gutter while the other edge passes over the first row of tiles and is secured to the second row. On metal corrugated and deck roofs, specially designed saddles are used to secure the mesh on the roof and valley edges. Top Guard® Leaf Guard is made from TAPEX aluminium and manufactured to Australian Standard. Leaf Guard is also CSIRO tested to a rating of 0 for flammability.
