The best leaf guard for gutters
The best leaf guards for gutters is a question that many homeowners ask and often receive different answers depending on the type of leaf guard offered by that particular company. However, in all of our years of business, we have seen many types of leaf guards and how well they have worked.
Many traditional style leaf guards are attached under the bottom layer of shingles and then attached to the gutters. The problem that we see with this type of system is that anytime that you allow any space under shingles, there is always the posability for wind to catch and tear or even water and or debris to get under the shingles. With the importance of shingles to the protection of your roof, we believe it to be best if leaf guards are mounted only to the gutters and not to the roof.
