If you are experiencing problems with clogs, gutter covers may an effective solution. By installing gutter covers, you can prevent debris and leaves from accumulating in your gutters, reducing the risk of clogs and backups that can lead to water damage or other issues. Additionally, gutter covers can help to extend the lifespan of your gutters by reducing the amount of wear and tear caused by heavy debris buildup.

Low Profile Gutter Guards

Low-profile gutter guards are a type of gutter protection system designed to sit low and flat on top of the gutters, blending in with the roofline for a sleek appearance. These guards are typically made from a durable material, such as metal or plastic, and are designed to keep debris, leaves, and other materials from clogging up the gutters.

One of the benefits of low-profile gutter guards is that they are less visible than different types of gutter protection systems. It can be especially beneficial if you are looking for a solution that does not alter the appearance of your home’s exterior. In addition to their aesthetic appeal, low-profile gutter guards come in a variety of styles. Micro-mesh, double layer, and screens are all options you can choose depending on what kind of debris you need to keep out of your gutter system.

Screen and mesh gutter guards are great for keeping out both large and small debris from your gutter system. However, the small holes can also allow small stems to get stuck, or become clogged with mold growth. Periodic cleaning of your gutter guards helps ensure they will continue to prevent leaves from building up in your gutters, and stay clean themselves.

Reverse Curve Gutter Guards

Reverse curve gutter guards are also known as helmet-styled guards and are a gutter protection system that uses a patented design to keep gutters free from debris and other materials. These guards are designed to fit over the top of your existing gutters, forming a protective barrier that prevents leaves, twigs, and other debris from accumulating inside. They have a curved surface that allows water to flow into your gutters, while the debris is directed over the edge and falls to the ground.

One of the benefits of reverse-curve guards is that they are highly effective at preventing clogs and backups in your gutters. Because they cover the entire gutter, there is no opportunity for debris or leaves to accumulate inside the gutter system.

However, it is essential to note that gutter helmet-styled guards can be more expensive than other types of gutter protection systems due to the additional material and labor required for installation. Additionally, because they cover the entire gutter, they may be more visible from the ground level, which could impact the overall appearance of your home’s exterior.

Considerations for Choosing a Gutter Guard

When selecting what type of gutter cover to install, there are a few things to consider.

  • What type of debris is most commonly found in the gutters?
  • What style of gutter do you have?
  • Does debris wash out of your gutter system or does it get clogged up?

Different gutter covers have different strengths. If you have a lot of seed pods and asphalt granules in your gutter after a strong rain, then a micro-mesh gutter guard is the better choice over a reverse-curve design. Homes with lots of trees around that want to prevent blockages from leaves, twigs, and pine needles will benefit from a reverse-curve gutter guard that will keep large debris out while letting large amounts of water flow freely.

If your gutters have debris fall in them, but it washes out cleanly with each rain, then you may be able to skip installing gutter covers. But if you frequently have clogs, need to clean your gutters out twice a year, and have nests and tough debris in your gutter system, consider installing covers to make maintenance a much simpler job.
