Leaf guard systems protect your rain gutters from clogs by acting as a filter for leaves and debris that fall from your roof. While necessary, going up to the roof to unclog rain gutters is very dangerous, so installing gutter protection systems such as a leaf guard prevent clogs from happening in the first place.
There are three common types of leaf guards available in the market today and learning a little bit about them helps you decide what type is best suited for your home or business. First, there are leaf guards that are made from metal or plastic wires. The mesh screen allows water to pass through, but keeps the leaves and other debris out of the gutter. While no doubt effective, you need to clean the mesh screen regularly otherwise it will clog up too, and water will not be able to pass through the screen.
Then there are the rounded nose leaf guards that use surface adhesion and gravity to keep debris out of your gutters. When water comes down from the roof, this activates the nose cover, allowing the water to pass through but keeps the debris out. The downside to this type of system is it can easily get clogged and you have to check on it frequently.
Lastly, there are foam leaf guards that fill the gutter with water permeable foam that keeps leaves and debris away from the gutter. This is by far one of the most effective leaf guards in the market, guaranteed there would be no clogs on the gutter, and it is also the most affordable.
