To help you we have placed common questions asked. If the answer to your question is not here or doesn’t specifically cover what you need to know, please just contact us to ask we are always more than happy to assist.
The short and honest answer is yes. We recommend that at least once a year you simply hose out the gutters by hosing through the mesh (no need to remove or open). The reality is when it rains it clears it out anyway, and majority of customers never touch it and have no problems at all, but I did say I wanted to be honest with my answer
let’s start with the 1st statement, that is not true at all and annoys me when some companies / salespeople blatantly lie – think about this; all gutter mesh has holes in it so it stands to reason that something can or will get through.
Gutter knight mesh has different types of gutter mesh with various hole spacing, in most cases it will keep 95% of leaves and debris out and anything small enough to get through will simply flush out of the gutter when it rains
Gutter Knight gutter mesh when installed seals off the guttering system so nothing should enter (unless they eat metal?). The only way ‘vermin’ can get in is up the inside of downpipes but there is ways we can stop that too if it’s a problem
That’s what we call ‘water sheeting’. With our diamond profile mesh it is designed for maximum water capture. To be honest, in extreme rain storms even without gutter guard mesh water will still over flow the gutters and run off to the ground (and that’s what they are designed to do anyway)
Yes. Gutter Knight gutter mesh has 12 years warranty and we also provide a 20 year workmanship warranty too. Not only that but at the completion of every job a written warranty certificate if provided that stays with the house, meaning if you sell the home the warranty is still there.
That’s a real good question and depends on who you talk to (and what they are selling).
Here’s a quick run down:
– Plastic unless protected out in the sun and weather breaks down – we have all seen plastic that has been outside for some time and it becomes hard and brittle
– Plastic in a fire will ignite or in high heat will deform
– Plastic is made from chemicals that leach out over time and may end up in your water tank
– Plastic needs to be manufatured thicker for strength so will cut down on water into the gutters or cause more water ‘sheeting’ (run off)
Aluminium and Steel don’t have these problems and are ‘cleaner’ materials to use.
People ask us why we don’t use plastic? As we are independant we can use or buy what ever material we like – but when it comes down to it at the end of the day we need to provide a warranty and stand behind the product we use, as we don’t want any problems (just like you don’t) we only use Aluminium and Steel mesh.
Possums bend the mesh? yeah maybe if they are fat 30 kilo ones and the size of a German Shepard, but never seen one of those…
I have heard this before from customers who had a ‘salesperson’ around trying to scare them with ridiculous stories. When you think about it there is really only a few inches gap at the most between the edge of the roof and the tip of the gutter, so not that much space at all – and once the mesh (either steel or aluminium) is screwed to the edge of the gutter and fixed to the roofing, the mesh is tight.
Good luck on a possum bending it, and if by some chance it did it’s not going to make any difference to the performance anyway…
If you do come by one of those 30 kilo German Shepard sized possums, please take a picture I would love to see one :)
That’s like saying; All cars are exactly the same, they all have 4 wheels – of course we all know that they are different and have different functions and you can buy cheap ones (that don’t last and cost you money) and premium brands that perform and save you money over time.
It’s the same with mesh, even though mesh from different companies may at first apprearance all ‘look’ the same that’s very rarely the case, and ‘yes’ you get the salesperson who will always say that their mesh is exactly the same as the more expensive one but in reality they are peddling a cheap product that once installed and when you do get problems they are gone.
We all have bought products in the past that were cheap that have ended up costing us more in the long run – here’s something to think about; it will cost you the same labour rate to install a inferior product as it will cost a premium product, so why not do it right the first time. Remember; you get what you pay for…
Right from our first contact with Roly from Gutter Knight Ipswich we knew we had found the right company to supply and fit gutter guard to our two story house. Roly came out and provided valuable advice on our style of house and what would work best and at the same time informed us of the process, product and how Gutter Knight installs gutter guard.
On the day of installation the installer was bang on time and got into the job very quickly which included cleaning out the gutters and installing the gutter guard, a smooth process.
Overall Roly and his team provided great service, great product at a very competitive price and all delivered and installed on time.
I can highly recommend Roly and his team
