The type of leaf gutter that is right for you or your home can vary. The following are the two most popular types:
- The most common types of leaf guards are mesh leaf guards. Simply put, they are sheets of metal with small holes to allow water to run through and keep most debris on top of the guard. They are attached to the roof shingles and cover the gutter.
- Reverse curve leaf guards do not have holes. They lay over the top of the gutter and allow water to flow over the edge of the guard and into the gutter. Leaves and debris land on the top and eventually fall to the ground.
Other types of leaf guards are available as well. To understand the best type of gutter for your home, your neighborhood and your lifestyle, contact our professional install team. We offer free estimates for homeowners – contact our office to schedule your free estimate.
