Steel buildings are being built for more alternate purposes these days. Years ago it was unheard of, but these days steel buildings are even being used as residences often referred to as Barndominiums. Due to the alternate uses, and the fact that tree lines grow taller and closer every year, more and more people are looking for steel building gutter guards and barndominium gutter guards.
Most other standard gutter clog protection and typical gutter guards and gutter screens will not fit and will not work on metal buildings due to the high front edge of the steel building gutter and the fact that the metal building gutter brackets are obstructing the installation of a gutter leaf guard. The standard or typical gutter leaf guard would need to be trimmed, cut and fastened every few feet where the commercial metal building gutter is strapped with steel building gutter hangers attached to the upper ribs of the metal roof. Combine this cutting and trimming around each gutter hanger, with the fact that the outer edge of the metal building gutter is higher than the roof drip edge, and you realize that typical gutter screens, gutter covers, gutter mesh and gutter guards do not fit and will not work on metal building gutters and PEB gutters.
