Top tips for selecting the best gutter guard system and company
Due to the variety of gutter guard systems and companies in the market, it can be an overwhelming and increasingly difficult task in deciding which is the most suitable system and company to provide you with optimum protection.
When choosing the best gutter guard system for your home, there are several factors to consider.
1. Quality of Materials and Aperture or Hole Size
Given the variety of materials and styles of gutter guard systems in the market today, it is imperative to consider the quality of the product in unison with the hole size of the product. Some systems have large holes, gaps, and openings. This will further cause problems as homeowners will still be required to remove the gutter guard to clean and maintain gutters.
King Group Australia’s sister company Ultraguard is the inventors and manufacturers of the Expanded Aluminium gutter protection system with a 3.5mm aperture or hole size.
This allows for maximum water filtration whilst keeping the gutter line free from debris, leaves and build-ups.

2. Cost of Gutter Guard
While there are a variety of inexpensive DIY options that may advertise an effective way to keep your gutters clean, they’re more than likely a short-term solution with regular maintenance involved and ultimately the need to be replaced sometimes within months of installation.

3. Gutter Guard Installation
Due to the variety of systems, there are a variety of installation methods. Some systems involve placing the gutter protection system, inside the gutter-line, which is not a recommended approach, due to the lack of water filtration and sunlight, in turn creating problems in the future.
Other systems materials are not adept at dealing and coping with our harsh Australian Climate, thus resulting in deterioration and degradation over time.
4. Gutters or Gutter Protection?
Some systems involve replacing all existing guttering as a part of the installation process. This is an expensive and redundant approach when deciding on the right system for your property.
