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.
When your gutters get clogged the rain or snow has nowhere to go but up on the roof or down the side of the house seeping into the interior walls and foundation causing damage. Bad gutters start sagging or pull away from the fascia board caused from too much snow weighing down the gutter. When the gutters are not protected with gutter guards they take a lot of wear and tear from trees animal feces snow ice and rain. When you have a solid guttering system the rain water and melted snow will run through the gutter in to the downspout out on the ground running away from your home. Without the gutter guard protection your gutters will eventually cause damage costing you thousands of dollars in repairs that could have been prevented.
