Gutter Guard Protection Tile Roof Installation Christchurch Canterbury Otago and throughout New Zealand. Just like iron, roofs made from tiles have been around for a hundred years or so too, and though Gumleaf Gutter Guard Protection can’t claim to be that ancient, we are proud that our product is consistently proving its ability to stand the test of time as well.
Gumleaf is probably the best product on the market in terms of longevity – we can safely offer a 20-year+ lifespan – and its effectiveness has been endorsed by each of our many happy clients. Made from tough BHP Bluescope steel mesh, Gumleaf is rust-resistant and rich in zinc which means that unless you live right beside the sea, there’s no need for powder coating. What you see is what you get, and with Gumleaf it’s all about what works.
Gumleaf Gutter Guard Protection is ideal for any type of New Zealand roof. The one negative with tiled roofs is that there’s limited flexibility in colour matching and we can offer only one colour: Woodland Grey. As Gumleaf is invisible when attached to tiled roofs, this is not much of an issue.
For tiled roofs, the installation process is simple – you can even do it yourself if preferred – but if you don’t have a head for heights then leave the job to the experts (us!). We are certified to work at heights and follow exemplary health and safety procedures at all times. Our systems are methodical, and we like to go the extra mile; we’ll even clean out your gutters for you as part of the service.
This is how we install Gumleaf Gutter Guard Protection on tiled roofs:
We check that the bottom row of tiles can be slid back (no cyclone clips or nails)
On-site measure and no-obligation quote. On acceptance of our quote, we work on a 7 to 10 day period to begin your guttering installation. Completion of the installation is usually one to two days, dependent on the size of your home or business premise
Clean out the gutters and flush the down-pipes
Slide tiles back to the original position
Place screws into gutter lip approximately 300mm apart
Fold down the back piece to create a double fold
Slide the first row of tiles back into position
Cut mesh to the desired length of the corner
The Overlap guard is approximately 10mm
The Interlock guard is placed in the middle of both pieces
