The products we use

All products installed by The Gutter Guard are manufactured by Tapex and supplied to us by Karben Industries. They are simply the best products for the job.

We proudly use these long established Australian companies with proven track records as industry leaders who have supported us continually throughout our entire career in gutter protection.


Something you should consider:
If you are getting competitive quotes for mesh installation, make sure you check if other companies are using a Chinese sourced product. Often these products have not been developed specifically for the demands of Australasian conditions and will most likely cause unexpected problems.
