Many people invest in a gutter protection system to prevent damage to their gutters and to minimize the need for maintenance. Not all types of gutter covers, however, are reliable or will even make your life easier; in fact, some still require frequent cleaning and clog removal. Today, ABC Seamless Siding, a leading gutter guard company, discusses the pros and cons of different types of gutter guards.

Pros and Cons of Different Types of Gutter Guards

Gutter Mesh

This gutter protection system is made of aluminum or PVC screens that fit on top of your existing gutters. The design is flawed because it allows small debris to enter and clog your gutter system. Leaves may also get stuck on top, which means you’ll still need to clean your gutters, defeating the purpose of the gutter mesh.

Gutter Foam

Gutter foams are economical, but they will take some time to install. They come in pre-cut pieces, which you need to trim to fit your gutters. Debris also tends to settle on top of the inserts.

Gutter Brush

Just like gutter foams, a gutter brush fills the gutter’s cavity. Water passes the bristles easily, which traps debris with the bristles. Some objects caught by the brush, however, are impossible to remove. This means you have to purchase new inserts.

Gutter Helmet®

For a long-term gutter maintenance solution, Gutter Helmet outperforms all other types of gutter covers. Gutter Helmet’s innovative nose-forward design and ribbed surface work together to prevent entry of debris and to allow proper flow of water to the downspouts.

Additionally, Gutter Helmet enhances the aesthetic appeal of your roof. It comes with a patented PermaLife™ finish that provides long-lasting beauty and protection. This feature is part of the reason for the countless rave Gutter Helmet reviews the product has received.
