Leaf guards are mounted over or within gutters to prevent debris, especially large leaves, from clogging the gutter pipes. Since cleaning gutters is such an unpleasant task, you’ve probably begun to wonder how well a leaf guard can do in reducing your workload and making the gutters much more efficient. Although leaf guards have the ability to keep some of the large debris that may clog your gutters such as leaves and twigs, they still require maintenance and cleaning along with your gutters. These types are completely closed on top but have a curved tip that causes water to drop down into the gutter, while leaves and debris end up falling to the ground below.
These leaf guards are fantastic for getting rid of just leaves, but they can be highly ineffective in heavy rain. Light and medium-light rainstorms won’t be a problem, but heavy rainfalls to the ground rather than just going straight to the gutters.
Mesh covers are just what their name means. You can add a covering over the top of your gutter that will prevent larger objects from passing through while also allowing rain to pass through. Certain forms are superior to others, but this is mostly dependent on what you have available in your home.
Small bristles are installed through the gutters which are designed to keep large debris out of them while allowing for an easier flow of water. Unfortunately though, they have the tendency to be clogged fairly easily.
This kind of leaf guards work very well for leaves and snow in the winter seasons, although they can be pricier depending on the style you get.
Foam leaf guards have the ability to fit inside your gutters and prevent large debris from getting inside. They are designed to allow water through around the foam guard but aren’t always effective when it comes to heavy rain and particularly large downpours.
While there are a few types of guards that can help with these kinds of situations, they are generally cost prohibitive, so we don’t recommend them as much. We have never ran across a gutter guard that did not require any cleaning under and that includes gutter helmets.
