HOW DOES IT WORK ?
Gutters would clean themselves automatically every time it rains if the amount of debris that got into them was small enough to be carried away with the rain water as it travels the length of the gutters then out of the downspouts.
That can take place only when the majority of debris such as but not limited to leaves, twigs, tassels, acorns, nuts etc. which fall on your roof from nearby trees is diverted to the ground rather than collecting inside or above your gutters even backing up on the roof.
SEE HOW The Gutter Shield® WORKS
The Gutter Shield ® has a very low profile of just 3/4" in height, and is barely visible when viewed from ground level. Each 4 foot aluminum section is installed on new or existing gutters and extends upward between the starter shingle and the first row of shingles which is located immediately above the starter or lowest shingle. It is held fast to the gutter by our unique stainless steel fastening system. Our system requires no screws or nails through the shingles into the decking to hold it in place. On most installations only a few inches of the cover is visible since its top edge fits up under the first row of shingles which hang over the bottom edge of the roof.
How does the clip work?
The shields back edge extends up between the starter shingle and the first row of shingles directly above it. The entire top of the gutter is covered to keep debris out.
Water adheres to the shield by a process called cohesion, it follows the curvature of the rounded front edge into the gutter.
HOW DURABLE IS IT?
The Gutter Shield durable aluminum construction with patented stainless steel clips protect against crushing even in areas that get heavy snow. The weight of this concrete block did not affect the integrity of The Gutter Shield. "We are NOT saying that you can drop a concrete block on it without damage!"
DOES The Gutter Shield ® STOP ICE IN GUTTERS?
The Gutter Shield® KEEPS SNOW FROM GETTING INTO THE GUTTERS. However your gutters will continue to perform just like any other clean, free flowing gutter, if they get icicles or any other form of ice it will not result from clogging due to leaves or debris in the gutters. The Gutter Shield ® keeps the gutters leaf and debris free, so they can drain properly year round. Any and all gutters may ice up under adverse conditions, with or without The Gutter Shield ® or any other device. We recommend installing electric heat tape inside your gutters if you live in deepfreeze conditions and want to keep the water flowing.
