We are not a franchise with only one gutter cover solution. We have five technologies to satisfy each need and budget.
Debris Resistance Evaluation Rating for gutter protection is a measure of a product's ability to prevent debris from entering into a gutter. Pollen particles are assigned a value of 100, grains of sand (120 microns in size) are assigned a value of 80, fir needs a value of 60.
Indicates that a product may readily allow materials and organisms as large as white pine needles, oak tassels, medium and small leaves as well as mosquitoes, wasps, and flies into your gutter. There is an undeniable risk that these products may allow gutter clogs (and serve as insect nests).
May reduce the number of occasions a gutter needs to be unclogged, but the risk of clogs is ever present. especially if there are more than a few trees in the vicinity.
Indicates that a gutter cover may readily allow snakes, lizards, mice, and birds into your gutter. It IS possible that some of these listed critters may try to take up residence in a gutter that has a "roof" (like a reverse curve hood) over it.
The leaf bar indicates* a product's ability www.nikehuarache.nl to block various sizes of organic debris. 100% efficiency, on a Debris Resistance Evaluation chart, would mean a gutter protector could keep pollen sized particles out of a gutter while still remaining 100% water permeable. Although Leaf Relief is highly resistant to clogging, no system outside of nature is completely maintenance free.
