Cleaning the leaves and debris from your eavestroughs is probably not at the top of your list when it comes to taking care of the exterior of your home, but it probably should be. Buildup in your eavestroughs can cause damage to your home if not cleaned out on a regular basis. Installing a leaf guard can be a great solution. There are several features of the leaf guard system that prevent it from ever clogging.
- No Hangers or Nails. Traditional eavestroughs are installed with hangers and nails every 18 inches and left open on top, which can lead to clogs of ice and leaves. The leaf guard system has a seamless design with recessed screws and no hangers, which prevents this from happening.
- Snow and Ice Remain on Top of the Leaf Guard. Because the leaf guard system covers your eavestroughs, snow and ice remains on top allowing water to drain through the holes during periods of thawing. This ensures that your eavestroughs cannot become clogged with snow or ice.
- Aluminum Screen Filter. A double-layer screen allows water to flow into the eavestrough, while preventing leaves and debris from ever entering. Leaves stay on top and are carried away by the wind.
