To fully understand how LeafFilter™ can help you, you must first understand the purpose of gutters on your home.
Gutters typically consist of an extruded metal trough that are installed along a home’s roof line to gather water during rain and snowstorms. Gutters are typically installed on a slight slope to encourage water flow from one end to the other, where the water will then flow down a downspout and away from your home.
Without gutters, your home’s exterior is susceptible to water damage, allowing water to drip down your eaves, across your fascia board, down your home’s exterior walls, and even seep into your home’s foundation, causing damage. Water that is not adequately diverted away from your home can cause soil to erode away from the foundation, costing you thousands in repair work.
How LeafFilter™ Can Help
The LeafFilter™ Gutter Protection system has been scientifically designed to create the optimal gutter system for your home. Just like a lid on a box, LeafFilter combined with your existing gutters creates a completely sealed system that prevents anything from entering your gutters except for water.
LeafFilter™ is designed around the idea of surface tension. When water flows down your roof towards your gutters and passes over the LeafFilter™ system, the micro-mesh screen and rigid vinyl body combine to break that surface tension, pulling the water through the screen and into your gutters.
The Center I-Beam and Subtle Drip Edge combine to ensure your LeafFilter™ system will never buckle or bow due to weight or shifting weather conditions, as well as help remove any debris that could land on your LeafFilter-protected gutter.
