Types of Leaf Protection
Our two main leaf guards are:
#1. Leaf Dog
#2. Stainless Mesh Screens
In order to decide which guard is right for you, you need to answer the next two questions.
First, do you have leaves and debris, or pine needles and debris? Pine needles and debris requires the use of the Stainless Mesh Screens. Though the Leaf Dog works with pine needles it can hold some needles in an upright position, making the roof and gutter look messy and un-kept.
Second, what type of roofing do you have? Is your roofing smooth metal, asphalt shingles, or a granulated metal? Smooth metal roofing requires the Stainless Micro Screens and we recommend a minimum 6-inch gutter with smooth metal roofing.
