The best gutter protection systems deny any troughs or cavities where leaves and debris can once again build up. Craft Master Roofing and Guttering Specialists recommend LEAF STOPPER, the durable, corrosion resistant protection system your gutters deserve. Preventing leaves and debris from obstructing water flow and blocking gutters and downpipes eliminates the need for dangerous gutter cleaning and significantly reduces maintenance. It will also screen out pests and animals stopping them from entering gutters and roof cavities. Leaf Stopper first has one side attached to the lip of the gutter by a fastening system. The other side is then placed over the first tile and under the second tile, or in the case of a metal roof it will be fastened to the top of the roof using saddle clips. Creating a slight incline allows nature to do most of the work, leaves are left to dry and eventually blow off in the wind. A further benefit is that the water starts entering earlier at the top of the first tile, giving it a better chance to end up in the gutter rather than over it. Valley irons can also be screened. Leaf Stopper is made from long lasting aluminium and its alloys are highly resistant to most forms of corrosion.
The metal’s natural coating of aluminium oxide provides a highly effective barrier to the ravages of air, temperature, moisture and chemical attack. For those in bushfire prone areas and where councils specify an appropriate gutter guard, LEAF STOPPER is definitely the right choice for you. It has a flammability index of 0 from the CSIRO making it the best protection available in heavily treed areas. Aesthetically it looks great and comes in 11 colours. LEAF STOPPER is somewhat translucent with the effect of allowing more of the natural roof colour through, disguising the mesh. LEAF STOPPER is suitable for collecting drinking water and carries a 15 year product guarantee.
