Remarks:   Jim M. 12-7-21 from Rhode Island wrote:  I have used over 300 feet of GutterBrush simple Lead Guard for 7” Gutters (6.5” diameter) at my Gothic Victorian style home in Rhode Island.   More than 2 years into it, they still save me what used to be 4 trips per year up the ladder to clear the gutters.  Whatever had been stuck in the bristles had been reduced to sludge and the downspouts have continued to run freely. My copper built-in “box” gutters are a custom architectural component of the house and "electrolysis" damage is a problem with copper gutters and other gutter guards; but not GutterBrush leaf guard.  Similar to a wooden boat, where fastenings are "eaten" by electrolysis, my gutters "eat" scuppers and downspouts (unless copper) . This was a concern I had about GutterBrush, but your Brush doesn't "conduct" to the "windings".  Thank you GutterBrush simple leaf guard system.

Some Gutter guards can cause problems and roof edge leakage.  The author with 25 years of roofing experience, explains in lay terms, why a properly installed gutter should never leak into the building and how some gutter guards that intersect with the roof or fascia can actually add leakage vulnerability by increasing the roof burden.  The author builds the case by explaining the principles involved in avoiding leaks and specifically how the physical characteristics of certain gutter guards change the dynamics and create a clear path to wind driven rain leakage and or ice backup leakage over the fascia board.   The author describes how and why some gutter guards can cause problems while other gutter guards provide effective clog protection while causing no harm.
