16 Feb 5 Reasons To Install Colorbond Gutter Guard On Metal Roofs
Are you looking to install gutter guards on your property? They are an essential part of protection for many homes across Australia. They are a practical and useful solution at preventing leaves and other debris from blocking your guttering system – but often unsightly.
Of course, you may think that more aesthetic gutter guards are not necessary as the gutter is positioned up high. However, Colorbond matched Gutter Guards offer customers more than just a visually appealing option.
So, if you are looking to install gutter guards to protect your gutter system or you are looking to replace your existing guards, here are our top three reasons why you should consider using Colorbond matched Gutter Guards:
High-Grade Aesthetics for Australian Roofs
No other gutter guard can match the professional and streamlined aesthetics of colorbond Gutter Guards colour-matched to your colorbond roof.
The Colorbond product collection comes in an array of 25 colours that are colour-matched to meet any metal gutter and roofing style:
- Corrugated roof
- Trim Deck roof
- Klip Lok roof
- Tiled roof
Homeowners with sloped roofing have guttering systems in a more prominent view. Installing gutter guards can completely transform the look of your sloped roof property. However, high and flat roofs also benefit, especially on properties founded on slopes or mountains.
A gutter guard can transform your property’s aesthetics by preventing overflowing and overgrown gutters and downpipes – reduces your need for constant gutter cleaning. Its bird proofing and vermin qualities can also dramatically improve property aesthetics– even help raise your property’s value.
Long-Lasting Quality with Powder Coating
COLORBOND® powder coating gutter guards are designed to maintain their bold colour, structural integrity and corrosion-free appearance for decades on your roofs.
Unlike most options out there on the market, Colorbond Gutter Guards are made of sturdy metal, usually either aluminium or stainless steel, which has then been powder coated for additional durability.
The powder coating ensures that the Gutter Guards can last significantly longer than uncoated metal. Most metal-based guards are often very thin, which reduces their weight; however, this can lead to them breaking or snapping during general wear and tear over their lifespan. Powder coating the guards, therefore, helps to provide an additional layer of protection against animals and the elements.
COLORBOND® Gutter Guards will not only protect your guttering from being blocked, but the powder coating will also ensure that they will be able to last for decades.
Tested for Australian Conditions
In Australia, our properties and buildings face a variety of rough conditions.
Protection from the elements is another important factor when considering your gutter guard system. Australian gutters and roofing systems, including downpours, are exposed to extreme wind, hail, snow and rainfall. Australia is ravaged by tropical storms, dust and high levels of atmospheric corrosion for coastal dwellers.
For over 50 years, COLORBOND® steel manufacturers and suppliers, including Tapex and Bluescope Steel, have tested Colorbond steel products, including gutter guards. These products are exposed to a variety of Australian outdoor conditions. Our Colorbond steel gutter guard products meet the Australian Standard AS2728 and suitable for use in a range of building applications.

COLORBOND® Steel is a proven and trusted brand that manufacturers and designed in Australia for Australian properties.
The COLORBOND® brand is an Australian well-known and trusted brand used by roofing professionals and gutter guard installers across the industry, which should sign the strength and durability of the guards they provide.
The market is awash with cheap gutter guards, but investing in products that use a well-known and proven brand such as Bluescope Colorbond can ensure your guards can withstand everything thrown at it and will be able to last for decades.
So if you are looking to install gutter guards in your home, then using a proven brand such as Colorbond can ensure your guttering system is fully protected with durable, aesthetically pleasing and proven guards.

Aluminium Mesh Colour-matched Gutter Guards
If the traditional aluminium gutter or guards are left to be exposed to the wind, rain and sunlight, they will rust over time and eventually need replacing after a few years. Homeowners will have to pay out to replace their gutter guards more frequently than a powder-coated version, which can add up to significant sums of money over time.

Plastic Mesh Colour-matched Gutter Guards
A plastic-based gutter guard is one way to prevent the risk of corrosion and help to extend the lifespan of your guards. Many generic black plastic gutter guards on the DIY market can be purchased easily online or from Bunnings. These guards will fail over time when exposed to UV rays from the sun. Not only that, but it is also not very durable and is prone to shattering and breaking in high winds.
We recommend high-performance plastic mesh gutter guards over other plastic guards on the market. The Colorbond plastic mesh guards come in the same variety of colours as metal mesh guards.
Plastic mesh Colorbond gutter guards:
