While you already know the vast benefits that gutter mesh provides for your house, you might be wondering what options you have when selecting your gutter mesh. Surprisingly, for such a simple and easy to use product, you have a lot of freedom when it comes to choice.

Although gutter mesh is there to serve its primary function and protect your gutters, we understand that you still want your roof to look good. In most cases, you’ll be installing the gutter mesh and not a professional, but we guarantee that you’ll be thrilled with the outcome after installing your DIY Gutter Guard gutter mesh.

To help ensure that you are completely satisfied after installing the gutter mesh, there are a few decisions that you need to make before making your purchase. At DIY Gutter Guard Kits Online, we want to help give you all the information we can provide before you make that final purchase.

Listed below for your convenience are the varieties of gutter mesh that are available to buy from DIY Gutter Guard Kits Online. All our products are available to look at on our website, so once you’ve chosen what you need it’s time to order!

Aluminium or HDPE Poly Mesh

Both of these variants are from Tapex, an Australian manufacturing company dating back 125 years with a reputation for supreme quality. Aluminium gutter mesh comes with a Tapex guaranteed warranty of 15 years, and the HDPE poly mesh comes with a 10-year warranty.

The advantage of aluminium mesh is that it has gone through rigorous testing by the CSIRO and has received a flammability index rating of 0, which makes it ideally suited to bushfire prone areas. Another benefit of aluminium mesh is it boasts resistances to the majority of corrosion.

HDPE poly mesh is made from a UV stabilised, high-density polyethylene plastic. It has the strength to withstand Australia’s harsh conditions, and we recommend its use on raw galvanised roofs in corrosive conditions.

Gutter Mesh Options

Each length of gutter mesh we sell is suitable for a different type of roof, so make sure that you order the correct measures for your roof.

For a corrugated iron roof, purchase 250mm mesh, saddles, trims and screws. For a corrugated iron roof standard valley, however, you won’t require any trims.

Tiled roofs are best suited for 500mm mesh, trims and screws. A tiled valley, on the other hand, should only require 1000mm-wide gutter mesh.


There is a wide array of colours to choose from when selecting either the aluminium or the HDPE poly mesh. Also available are matching choices for the saddles and trimmings to best suit the look and feel of your house.
