How do gutter guards work

Gutter guards prevent clogs from forming in your gutters so that you can avoid the dreaded – and often dangerous – task of cleaning them out. But how do gutter guards work exactly? Let’s find out.

The Science Behind Gutter Guards

Gutter guards are attached above your gutters, creating a barrier. They work by pulling water into your gutters while pushing leaves, twigs, seed pods, and other debris away. This keeps your gutter system clear and allows water to flow down your roof, into your gutters, and away from your home with ease, thus preventing water damage to your roof, your home’s foundation, and your landscaping.
