Combating gutter clogging can be tricky. One of the most common types of DIY rain gutter guards is called a mesh. While mesh gutter guards are affordable and can be installed fairly easily, they offer subpar performance at best. Read on as ABC Seamless Siding discusses the downsides of this type of gutter protection system.

Mesh Screens

The Disadvantages of Using Gutter Mesh

A gutter guard is supposed to make your life easier, not introduce new hassles. Unfortunately, a gutter mesh system will only make your life harder. With a gutter mesh, you still need to clean the area regularly because leaves, twigs and other objects tend to settle on the surface. Additionally, small materials can still enter your gutters through the metal channels in the gutter mesh.

Another problem with gutter mesh screens is they do not handle water well. Rainwater tends to wash over the guards instead of flowing into the gutters. This can lead to serious water damage on your roof, siding, landscape and even your home’s foundation.

Why Gutter Helmet® Is Superior

Unlike other gutter guard systems, Gutter Helmet® effectively keeps debris away from your gutters. It has a unique nose-forward design and a ribbed surface that utilizes the principle of surface tension, which allows water to cling to its surface as flows smoothly through the gutter opening.

It also features a PermaLife™ finish that preserves the beauty of the system. This advanced coating technology comes in many colors to complement your exterior design. The system comes with a Triple Lifetime Warranty for long-term protection and peace of mind.
