Protect copper gutters with gutter guards
Cleaning the gutter excessively can be avoided by using a gutter guard. All debris or leaves will not enter the gutter if you use the correct gutter guard system.
The first type of gutter guards you can use is the gutter shingle.
Another guarding system is the filter. You can clip the filter into place at the open end of the gutter and use it as a gutter guard. Debris can also be stopped from entering the gutter by using a mesh covering. Usually people choose the plastic material for this because it is the better option, but you can also fin it in metal, it is your choice.
The third type is the screen inserts. They are shaped the same as the guttering making it very easy to slot it in place on the gutter and stop debris from entering the gutter.
The last system you can use as a gutter system is the hinged cover. The advantage with this is that you can clean beneath it very easy as it fits on top of the gutter and you can flip it anytime.
