While these are easy to install, especially if you have old, brittle shingles, they can get plugged—the openings in the screen can get clogged with debris, and they often need to be cleaned out.
Micro mesh screens are also not a good option for Colorado where snow and ice can clog the mesh and prevent ice melt run off.
This can cause pooling of snow melt on top of your gutter and roofs, causing further damage.
Our perforated system keeps out leaves/larger debris, are efficient to install, and inexpensive. They work with several different types of roofs, including shingles, steel and tile.
Also, UV rays from the bright Colorado sunlight landing on your roof may cause plastic guards to split and become brittle. However, since Legacy insists on the dark brown color of their aluminum guards, this leaf filter system absorbs the heat from the sun, enhancing ice and snow melt which will flow off your roof.
Water can slip into the rounded holes in this gutter guard, and your gutter is protected from leaves and other larger debris. These can protect your gutters from branches, snow/ice, and strong winds.
When properly installed, you will never have a gutter or downspout clog again…EVER! We’re so confident, we guarantee your gutters will remain clog-free for their lifetime.
