The dog days of summer are upon us and, if you’re like most of us, you’re getting tired of the daily popup rain showers every afternoon. With all this extra precipitation, have you checked to make sure your gutters are clear and draining properly? Will you have to climb a ladder to get those leaves and other debris out of your clogged gutters?
One solution to this exasperating chore is to install a gutter guard system on your home. Gutter guards eliminate the messy hassle of cleaning your gutters and also reduce the risk of falling from ladders. Leafproof XP is a unique gutter guard system that can be installed on your existing gutters without causing damage to your roof while keeping out debris and leaves. It also provides you with a year round solution for cleaning your gutters.
How Does It Work?
Leafproof XP is a solid aluminum gutter cover that utilizes surface tension. The “S” bend technology they use causes draining water to slow its momentum as it comes off the roof and into your gutters.
What Else Does It Do?
Leafproof XP also uses its patented technology to prevent most leaves and debris from getting into your gutters and causing clogs. Leafproof is made from aluminum so squirrels, birds, and other pests can’t chew through the guard. The opening for the water channel is also small enough that most birds can’t get into it to build their nests.
How Is It Cleaned?
Occasionally some debris might get into the Leafproof XP system. When that happens, the debris should be visible from the ground and can be cleaned with a hose with a high pressure nozzle. This decreases your risk of injury from falling off a ladder.
Will It Damage The Roof On Installation?
Leafproof XP is installed by sliding under the first row of shingles on your roof and attaching to the gutter lip. No nails or screws are required for installation, saving your roof and fascia from damage and potentially voiding your warranty.
