Gutter guards and what they really do!
Gutter guards prevent leaves, twigs, shingle grit, or other debris from entering and collecting in your gutters allowing the water to flow right through the gutter and away from your home.
The different types of gutter guards?
There are several ways of classifying gutter guards -- you can divide them into very broad or very specific categories. These are six basic types:
Mesh, Reverse curve, Bottle brush, Nylon, Non-gutter cover, Foam type
Mesh gutter guards are sheets filled with holes that cover the gutter and are mounted under your shingles and over the gutter. Small holes are more efficient than large holes because they don't clog. Smaller holes sift out all the debris but let water into the gutter.
Reverse curve gutter guards are designed to direct water downward into the gutter through a tiny slit and "prevent" leaves from entering.
Bottle brush gutter guards are basically those pokey bristles that prevent birds from landing on things such as statues. The bristles face upright so debris can rest on top while water flows into the gutter. There is a big problem behind this, after the debris build up on top of the bristles, water can't get through and you have to clean off the brush.
Nylon gutter guards are basically nylon filter installed inside the gutter. They might prevent leaves from entering but twigs and small debris will pass through and clog the gutter.
Non-gutter covers replace your gutters with a set of thin louvers that divert rain off the roof.
Foamtype, is made from a plastic that fits directly into the gutter. This is works the same as if you places a sofa foam inside your gutter. It will get dirty and absorb water into itself and prevent water flowing through. .
