One such device is a membrane that is installed either in the gutter itself as a filter or a brush. Another is a micro mesh filter that covers the gutters. But remembering the nature of the debris youll realize that these are not self cleaning gutters either. The same anticipation is met with dismay as the fine soil-like debris accumulates in the gutter and actually builds an impenetrable layer over the filter causing gutters to overflow. The filters in the cover likewise become clogged. If tree debris were like coffee grounds theyd probably work but tree debris is much finer clogging the filter requiring cleaning or replacement.
This gutter guard is the only rounded nose type that limits the amount of debris or size of debris that can pass into the gutter. This one system has proved that gutters can stay free flowing in heavy debris conditions for twenty years; and thats no small feat. The only downside is that in heavy debris conditions debris can accumulate on the louvers and block them off meaning that some kind of maintenance is required. Whereas most other products require someone to go up a ladder and clean the gutter or the cover it can easily be done from the ground using a telescopic pole and brush. Because its easy to see where cleaning is required theres no guessing where to do the brushing. No rain coats are required (as might be with the flip type gutter) to do this simple task as it can actually be done dressed in a suit and tie. After all telling someone who has to clean his gutters several times during the fall that no maintenance will be required is like asking the him to believe in Santa Claus.
Can there truly be gutters that are self cleaning? If you live in a forest of trees this sounds like a wild idea. All year long--not just in the spring or fall--twigs and tons of debris fall. Gutter cleaning is a year round chore--something that needs to be done every week from mid September through mid December and two or three times in the spring. The idea of self cleaning gutters is simply silly if youve ever seen a gutter full of leaves and debris. Most homeowners in this environment attempt to solve the problem first with screens.
How to Install Gutters Gutters come in several different sizes although most people never notice. You may have become accustomed to seeing white and brown gutters on homes but in fact many custom colors are available today. I built a Marine barracks in New York that required all red trims. Louvers vents fascias and soffit materials and yes even the gutters and downspouts were a matching red color. As with window units there are dozens of custom colors to choose from today. Almost all residential applications use a four inch by four inch wide standard gutter and three inch downspouts or leaders.
