What are Gutter Guards?
Cleaning out gutters can be a miserable, messy, and sometimes stinky task. Installing gutter guards could put that headache behind you. These covers protect your gutters from being filled with leaves, grass and debris.
Screens are the most common type of gutter guard. They come in a wide variety of shapes and materials and can be installed in a few different ways. Screens work well in situations where leaves are the main problem.
Next are surface tension guards. Surface-tension guards work best if they’re installed so the slope of the guard is similar to that of the roof. This may require rehanging existing gutters.
With surface-tension gutter covers, water clings to the rounded nose of the guard and flows into the gutter, while leaves and other debris fall off over the edge. Surface-tension guards work very well with leaves and other large debris. Small debris sometimes gets in but usually washes out the downspouts without a problem.
Fine mesh guards can be installed under the shingles, or with the back bent up, it can be fastened to both the fascia and the gutter for added strength.
Fine-mesh guards function like screens, but they block all but the smallest debris. The tiny spaces in the mesh won’t clog with seeds and needles, but they can fill with small particles like shingle grit. Fine-mesh gutter guards still need an occasional cleaning, but unlike screens, fine mesh is easy to blow or brush clean.
