GutterFoam is sold in convenient one metre lengths, not 900mm as with some other gutter protection products.

Who Are GutterFoam’s Competition?

Gutter Brush

Probably New Zealand’s most well known gutter protection system.

Take a look for yourself.

Installation is relatively easy but maintenance is a messy.

Gutter Mesh

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 Gutter Foam and installation is required by a franchise holder.

Do they work?

What Gutter Mesh let through

Gutter mesh bent back, the gutter cleaned and now to screw it all down again – until next time when it all has to be repeated!

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.

Pine Needles

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.

Don’t Just Take Our Word For it.
