Leaf guards stop leaves and other debris from falling into your eavestroughs while allowing water to flow through freely. Clogged eavestroughs are actually worse for your home than having no eavestrough at all. If they become clogged they will fill with water. They will then become heavy and start to detach or spill water over the side.
We use Gutter Sentry leaf guards that have a unique patented design that turns your average gutter into a complete box design, providing unequaled strength against bending, twisting and crushing. The Gutter Sentry allows the eavestroughs to remain firmly in place in extreme weather conditions, without sagging because of snow and ice formation. Its twenty 1/8 in. holes per square inch provide unequaled drainage capacity and up to more than 4 times the heaviest precipitations known worldwide.
