Frequently Asked Questions About Gutter Guards

  • 1.What is the GutterBrush Gutter Guard?
    • Imagine a large flexible bottle brush with stiff bristles. For a more technical description, the GutterBrush Gutter Guard is a cylinder shaped, twisted in wire, polypropylene brush with double UV protection. The center core of GutterBrush Gutter Guard is 12 Gauge Galvanized Steel. Available in 5 diameters ranging from 3.25 inches for small specialty gutters up to 8 inches for large Industrial gutters. GutterBrush Gutter Guard is a simple, effective, and affordable way to get year round gutter protection.

  • 2. How does the GutterBrush Gutter Guard work?
    • When placed in a rain gutter or eavestroughs, stiff GutterBrush Gutter Guard bristles fill the entire rain gutter or eavestroughs and provide year round gutter protection by preventing leaves and other debris from accumulating i­n the rain gutter or eavestroughs and impeding water flow. Water continues to flow freely into the rain gutter or eavestroughs, through the gutter guard and down the drain path.

  • 3. Why do I need the GutterBrush Gutter Guard?
    • Rain gutter covers, gutter screens, meshes, reverse curves, perforations, louvers, fine screens, slits, slots & combinations of the above have never done what the GutterBrush simple gutter guard can do: protect your rain gutter or eavestroughs and keep all the debris out of the rain gutter channel all year round. Once you install the GutterBrush Gutter Guard you will no longer have to deal with the danger and mess of cleaning the gutters yourself.

  • 4. Will leaves and other debris get caught in the gutter guards bristles?
    • If debris rests on your roof, the same may be the case with GutterBrush until the wind blows it off so don’t panic! Leaves and debris may be temporarily caught in the top of the gutter guard bristles, but with continual cycles of rain, sun and wind, combined with the high level of airflow through the GutterBrush Gutter Guard, most debris either dries out and blows away or self-composts and breaks down into small particles that wash down the rain gutter. Water will continue to flow through the gutter guard and your rain gutters or eavestroughs WILL NOT CLOG !

  • 5. What about pine needles and maple seeds? Will these get caught in the gutter guard.
    • Although pine needles, maple seeds and other small debris may become caught in the top of GutterBrush Gutter Guard, they remain suspended in the gutter guard bristles where natural cycles of sun, rain, and abundant airflow help blow the debris from the gutter guard or promote rapid decomposition. Your rain gutters will remain protected and water will continue to flow through the gutter guard and your gutters or eavestroughs WILL NOT CLOG !

  • 6. Don’t all rain gutter protection systems offer similar features? Why is GutterBrush Gutter Guard the best?

    • Your rain gutters will remain clear and flowing after the installation of GutterBrush Gutter Guard. However, if you ever do need to address gutter debris or a trouble spot, cleaning your rain gutters becomes as easy as removing a section of the GutterBrush Gutter Guard and giving it a quick shake or a brush with your hand.

  • 17. Will GutterBrush Gutter Guard have any impact on the problem of ice dams?
    • Ice dams are typically the result of improper insulation resulting in a “warm roof.” Snow melts o­n the roof and water trickles down near the rain gutter/eave area where it freezes again and builds up as a block of ice. GutterBrush Gutter Guard will have no effect o­n this process, but when the sun comes out, the black GutterBrush Gutter Guard bristles absorb heat and have been reported to promote rapid melting of any ice build up. GutterBrush Gutter Guard can be used to protect your rain gutters safely with gutter and roof heating cables.

  • 18. Gutter covers are large and unsightly. Is the GutterBrush Gutter Guard visible from the ground and will the gutter guard take away from the look of my home?
    • Although we think our product is the best on the market, we also believe it best if you never see it working. The GutterBrush Gutter Guard is manufactured of the highest quality materials that contribute to its low-profile application that keeps your rain gutters clean while remaining almost undetectable from ground level. For example, in lower level gutters you may just see the tips of the Gutter Guard bristles and in rain gutters 10-12 feet off of the ground the Gutter Guard will not be visible.
