Our Story

A History of Innovation...
The early years


Leafbusters was founded in 1992, in Olinda in the Dandenongs east of Melbourne, before there were many gutter guard options on the market.

The company launched with a diamond mesh gutter guard, which was the most effective technology at the time.

Continual innovation


In March 2000, the first batches of 2G UltraTech mesh were developed and quickly surpassed other gutter guard meshes in their durability and protective capabilities.

The founders of the Leafbusters brand were innovators of the industry, and the invention of 2G UltraTech situated Leafbusters as a market leader in both Australia and New Zealand. From 2000 to 2016, 2G was installed on thousands of homes using the permanent screwed, sloping down method. Tradies and plumbers all over Australia were also using 2G gutter mesh for their own roof construction and renovation jobs.

Proud Achievement

From 1992 – 2016, Leafbusters was installed onto 3.5 million metres of gutter.

The Leafbusters plan was to eventually install enough gutter guard to completely circumnavigate Australia !


Gutter guard is a tough industry. At this stage Leafbusters had been installed on thousands of Australian and New Zealand properties. In 2017 Thea Groom and her husband Paul (the founders) were unable to continue the business and their company was forced to close. But the Leafbusters brand carried on…

Change of ownership


In December 2019, the Leafbusters® trademark and website was given a new chance at life by Grayson’s Gutter Cleaning. Grayson’s have been proudly cleaning gutters since 2001. From the early 2000s, Grayson’s team was always impressed by the quality of workmanship in Leafbusters installations. Leafbusters had set a benchmark that massively influenced the gutter protection industry. The strength of 2G mesh and the attention to detail shown by Leafbusters installers was always educational and inspirational to see.

To this day, Grayson’s still uses the 2G mesh formulation in non-screwed (rolled in) installations. However, Grayson’s range of options also includes metallic mesh. For permanent screwed down applications we offer Full-Metal® mesh and for the toughest option possible we have Fire Ember Guard mesh!
