Gutter Foam

Recommended Posts

Yes the ad says they are the best, but we know there are better. Flat metal with perforations work well if you have wind to blow the needles off. Or you hit them with a leaf blower. The debris dries out on the metal.

The gutters with solid covers that have a little waterfall drip edge that shoots the water in thru a slot, those are the best, IMO. But I've never owned them so don't know if needles go in with the water, not visible to us.

I think roof pitch matters with these things. Steep pitch, good drainage, they probably wash off. Shallow pitch, they seem to collect crap same as all the other screens.

Steep pitch equals waterfall over gutter guards in moderate-heavy rains; great drainage on low-slope roofs (unless clogged of course).
