Iron/ Aluminum Alloy Roof Gutter Guard Roof /rain gutter leaf
Description:Gutter guards fall into 2 categories: gutter covers and gutter
screens. Screens are usually made of wire mesh, nylon or foam, and
are simpler and cheaper to install, but usually don’t last as long.
Gutter covers sit on top of your gutters, so appearance is
something else to consider. Also, they limit the waterflow into
your gutters because… well… they cover the gutters. They can be
made out of a variety of materials, including copper, aluminum,
plastic, wire mesh, nylon and foam.
Aka: Eave Gutter Guard, Roof Gutter Guard, Aluminum Gutter Guard,
Gutter Leaf Guard, etc.
Material: Aluminum, Stainless Steel
Properties: elegant appearance, easy installation, strong and durable
Usage: Gutter Guard is mainly installed on the eave which allows
rainwater to travel down into the gutter, while keep leaf litter
out of your gutters to avoid the channel is blocked and then you
never have to climb ladders to clean out the gutter again! Having a
gutter guard installed will also improve the quality of water if
you have a rainwater tank.
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. However, the openings in screens are large enough
to let in seeds and pine needles, and cleaning them out may require
removing the screens. Second, the screens themselves can become
plugged, and cleaning screens can be tricky because some of the
debris gets entangled and isn’t easily brushed or blown off. So if
you currently find lots of seeds or needles in your gutters,
screens may help, but don’t expect them to eliminate gutter chores.
Screens are the easiest to install. Some can be slid up under the
shingles, which is ideal because the screen will angle downward and
allow debris to slide off the roof. Other screens just drop in,
which makes them a good choice if you have old, brittle shingles,
or a shingle type other than asphalt that can’t be pried up
Main types of gutter guards are:
Mesh gutter guards – these metal sheets (filled with tiny holes)
attach to the roof shingles and cover the gutter.
Reverse curve gutter guards – these position the water downward
while directing the leaves to fall to the ground.
Bottle brush gutter guards – these are made of bristles that face
upright inside the gutter. The debris rests on top while the water
Nylon gutter guards – these work exceptionally well in the winter
due to their unique design which prevents snow from building up and
Foam gutter guards – these are actually made of plastic that fits
directly into your gutter, helping to block the debris from going
into the gutter.
Gutter guards are advertised as being able to prevent your gutters
fromclogging with leaves, as well as water and debris — thus saving
you from what could be a dangerous household task.
