You save as much as 11% by purchasing GutterFoam …
Because GutterFoam is sold in convenient one metre lengths.
Based on our sales since inception the average home of 40 meters will need 5 lengths less than that sold by our competitors whose products usually come in the shorter 90cm lengths.
Every supplier out there claims to have the best system.
This results in a lot of confusion and the ultimate decision can be difficult and prove costly.
We’re here to help you make up your own mind.

A brave call?
We think not because we truly believe that our product is the best.
Let’s discuss GutterFoam’s competition.
Probably New Zealand’s most well known gutter protection system.
Gutter Whiskers comes in 90cm lengths (whereas our product is sold in 1 meter lengths) and comprise a central wire core around which are twirled a series of spikes to make them look like cats whiskers.
These spikes then stop the leaves from entering the gutter but …
are they the “cat’s whiskers” of gutter protections systems?
Take a look for yourself.
Clearly this is going to lead to problems down the track as the leaves build up and totally block the gutters – there is just no way for them to escape.
Installation is relatively easy but maintenace is a mission.
The whiskers become clogged with dirt and plant growth and cling tenaciously to the whiskers – its probably quicker and easier to throw it all away and start again but that can be expensive.
There are two types of gutter mesh – plastic and steel.
Both are externally fitted to cover over the top of the gutter.
The plastic mesh is either placed over the gutter or, like the metal one, screwed and sealed in. This could mean making holes in your roof!
Gutter Mesh is generally more expensive than GutterFoam and in many cases costs as much as $80.00 per meter with installation required by a franchise holder.
Do they work?
Sure they do but not so well and maintenance is a whole new level of hassle.
Take a look …
Once the gutters have been cleaned the mesh needs to be reinstalled with the screws/bolts resulting in a time consuming and expensive exercise.
Imagine having to do this on a regular basis.
Mention “pine needles” to GutterFoam’s competition and they freeze like a hare in the headlights.
Pine needles are the bain of all gutter protection systems.
None handle them as well as GutterFoam does.
Now the pine needles are not only prevented from entering the gutter but are blown or washed off by wind and rain.
