Measuring your roof and selecting colours
Before you order the mesh needed for your job, it’s important that you have the correct measurements of the gutters you are wanting to install on, as well as checking the colours of your roof and gutters to ensure the mesh, trims, and saddles (when necessary) match correctly.
Here are some tips
If you are unsure of the colour you need to match your roof and gutters, you can print off the Colorbond colour chart here or for a more exact match visit your local hardware / building supply store to pick-up a Colorbond colour swatch from them.
When measuring it is important to add 250-500mm to each gutter-length measurement as overlap may be necessary and also to give yourself a bit of room for errors when cutting down the mesh.
We suggest to measure each gutter length from the ground. If measuring from the roof take extreme caution.
If measuring the valley's try to measure from a ladder that is secured in place, if you must measure from the roof take extreme caution and use the necessary safety persuasions (ie. a roof safety harness).
