Project Considerations

Large scale commercial project for Lyndon Aged Care Facilities  to improve the safety of residents & staff, while reducing maintenance costs.

gutter guard installation

Aussie Gutter Protection supplied and installed a gutter guard solution for the Lynden Aged Care facility in Camberwell in Melbourne’s west. The facilities provide aged care services to 102 residents in private two-bedroom units and communal living areas. The site also boasts other facilities, including a café and communal areas across one and two-storey buildings.

A gutter guard solution aimed to reduce the ongoing maintenance costs at the facility. Also, the gutter guard was deemed necessary for the health and safety needs of the aged care centre’s clientele.

Another critical consideration included the aesthetics of the guard. It was necessary to achieve a seamless and professional finish; it was essential to colour match the tile roof, commercial roof, and gutters.

The facility underwent substantial refurbishment in 2017-2018, including roof restoration and replacement of 32 residential and commercial style units. Green Wulf Metal Roofing was contracted to replace tiled and metal roofs at the facilities and required a close working relationship. There was a small installation window for the gutter guard: the new roof is complete, and the scaffolding on the building remains.

One final consideration included the current residents’ need for privacy with minimal disruption on site. This meant communication between the onsite maintenance manager and other construction companies working onsite would be crucial.

Our Solution

Large scale commercial project for Lyndon Aged Care Facilities  to improve the safety of residents & staff, while reducing maintenance costs.

Our Commercial Project Manager worked closely with the onsite manager and Green Wulf Metal Roofing companies. The unit’s new roof was completed in stages, so the installation scheduled closely followed the other construction and restoration work. Our installers cleaned all gutters before applying the guards. The roof accessibility complied with safety standards and regulations. 

Each unit was colour matched to the Colorbond roof to comply with the tile roof’s property aesthetics and design standards. TuffMesh Aluminium was used for both the tile and commercial roof.

Installation included working to construction timescale requiring communication and minimal disruption. Our installers made efforts to work around residents’ privacy and lifestyle needs. 

Our results mean Aussie Gutter Protection eliminated the need for the residents to get on the roof area – ensuring safety, convenience and peace of mind.
