Today or some day you will own a house and you will need to clean the gutter and relieve the flow of water. From the many available types, you should choose gutter guards. You have to decide what fits you best: plastic mesh, screen models, stable bracket or foam gutter guards.
The material from which gutter guards are made of is nylon or plastic, porous materials. You don’t have to worry about fitting because you can get them in any shape. This is how the system works. While water passes though the drain, leaves and other particles will remain stuck in the pores and the gutter won’t get clogged.
The installation only consists in you arranging the pieces in the correct order and mount them, nothing complicated. You won’t even have to modify the roof or drain. And more importantly, the look of the house remains intact as the guard is not visible from the outside.
But there is a downside of this type of gutter. The material is very weak and the system will wear away very easy. Also the pores may get blocked with tiny particles so you need to clean the system regularly. Also molds may block the system eventually. This is only a solution if you want a cheap product that is still effective.
