Northside Window & Gutter Cleaning has experience with all types of gutter guards and gutter covers. After working with gutter guards for many years, we have recognized the very few types that actually work well.
Micro Mesh Gutter Guard
The main style of gutter guard that we install is the Micro Mesh gutter guard. This is a premium, aluminum, louvered style gutter guard as shown below.
Micro Mesh gutter guards feature an offset vertical slant system that is engineered to draw rainwater in, while preventing leaves, pine needles and debris from entering. Even the tiniest particles, such as the shingle stones, tree seedlings and helicopters are not able to pass through the stainless steel T316, marine grade, micro mesh that covers the louvers.
Choosing the Right Gutter Guard for Your Home
Gutter guards come in many different styles, sizes and configurations. Many types will not install properly on a given gutter system or with a specific style of roofing. All of them promise to keep your gutter troughs clean of leaves and debris, allowing rainwater to flow freely to the downspout and away from your home. Above all, they claim that “the homeowner will never have to clean their gutters again.”
Don’t be fooled! Most of these gutter guard systems are quoted at thousands of dollars to be installed and are soon realized to cause more problems than ever expected. When this happens, the gutter cleaning company is soon being called out to inspect, fix the issue, and clean the gutters.
Even worse, many times the gutter guards end up being removed because they have failed to do their job properly. The expensive investment that the homeowner made just a few years ago, has gone to waste. There is a key combination of characteristics that make for a properly functioning gutter guard. The openings in the gutter guard need to be large enough to handle the water flow in your region, yet small enough to keep out the smallest seeds and debris. There are not many styles of gutter guard that have this perfect combination.
Make sure to do your research, ask questions, and choose a reputable, insured contractor before choosing to make this purchase!
