Debris Protection Options

It is important to prevent gutters from leaves and debris so that it functions properly. The three common types of debris protection options are:

 

Mesh/Screen

If you opt for mesh or screen as your debris protection, it will snap all the leaves onto the gutter. However, debris will flow into the downspout with the water, if there is any.

 

Solid Cover

As the name suggests, these are a solid cover that not only fits but also works well. By having these on your rain gutters, all leaves and debris will go right off the side. This means that you will have to worry less about cleaning your gutters frequently.

 

Gutter Filters

This is another great debris protection option which is made of a foam-like material. Once they are installed, gutter filters the water and let it flow, whereas the leaves will either flow over the top or dry up. There will be no clog whatsoever.
