Still another question: Even if you could have self cleaning gutters how about self cleaning leafguards? Am I getting ahead of myself? Having been in the business of gutter protection for over twenty years I can say that Ive only seen three types of leafguards that dont let the gutters clog inside. One was a flat louvered screen device. When we inspected the gutter inside they were clean enough to eat upon. The problem was that the top of the gutter covers were completely closed off with pine needles--looked like a thatched roof and water could not enter the gutter. So I must ask What good is it if no water can enter the gutter? The second type is a micro mesh flat screen that likewise gets installed on top of the gutter. And just as with the screen nothing gets into the gutter when it clogs on top. Now the louvered system previously mentioned only costs about $3.00 per foot to have installed and the micro mesh product can cost nearly $20 per foot. I think youll agree that neither keeps the homeowner off ladders if they routinely need their tops to be cleaned.
