Other Micro Mesh
Micro mesh gutter guards are typically made of two main parts: an ultra-thin mesh material and a supporting frame. Depending on the brand and quality of the micro mesh gutter guard you are researching, the supporting frame can be made of multiple types of materials, from plastic to metal to uPVC.
The mesh material used in most of these gutter guards is so fine – typically 50-microns fine – that it eliminates the possibility of anything penetrating the mesh and getting into your gutter. And, you’ll never have to worry about gutter cleaning again!
Although micro mesh gutter guards are the best gutter protection on the market, not all micro mesh gutter guards are created equal. Find out why LeafFilter is the best micromesh gutter protection:
Why is LeafFilter The Best?
LeafFilter Does Not Disturb Your Roof or Shingles
LeafFilter is the only micro-mesh product on the market that does not install under your first row of shingles. Our patented design allows for our product to sit on top of your existing gutters without impacting your roof line in any way.
Installing under your first row of shingles creates two problems:
- It voids your roof warranty. Many shingle manufacturers have wording in their roof warranties warning against disturbing your shingles after installation. Voiding your roof warranty can be an expensive mistake.
- It can create a very steep slope to your gutter protection. Because other micro mesh gutter guard systems must be installed under your first row of shingles, the angle of your gutter protection will depend on the plane or slope of your roof, causing water runoff since the angle of installation may be too steep.
LeafFilter™ eliminates both of these issues: Our product is installed on your existing gutters, with absolutely no impact on your roof or shingles in any way. With LeafFilter, you won’t have to worry about voiding your roof warranty. And, our product is manufactured with an 11-degree pitch, which has been proven to be the perfect angle for maximum water collection, and ensures that you do not experience any water runoff.
