GutterBrush Gutter Guard Information

▶ Click here to watch a 30 second video "What Is GutterBrush.  The GutterBrush Gutter Guard system consists of filling the entire gutter with 3 foot lengths of self-positioning GutterBrush, and leaving them in place; the brush keeps debris out and keeps the gutter from clogging while the water flows between the bristles. No tools or fasteners required.   Each length of GutterBrush is a flexible bottle brush leaf guard with stiff black bristles.  For a more technical description, the GutterBrush Gutter Guard is a cylinder shaped, twisted in wire, polypropylene black brush with double UV protection and a center core of twisted 12 Gauge Galvanized Steel. Available in 5 diameters ranging from 3.25 inches for small specialty gutters up to an 8 inch commercial gutter guard. Made in the USA since 2004, The GutterBrush Gutter Guard System is a widely accepted, simple, easy, effective, and affordable way to install year round gutter clog protection. Click here for samples.

When placed in a rain gutter, stiff Black GutterBrush Gutter Guard bristles fill the entire rain gutter or eavestroughs from "end to end" and provide year round gutter clog protection by preventing leaves and other debris from accumulating i­n the rain gutter and impeding water flow. Water continues to flow freely between the gutter guard bristles,  and down the drain pipe or downspout.  ▶ Click here to view a 33 second video of how the debris can no longer "clump, flow and clog".

Even small amounts of small tree debris can clog your gutter. GutterBrush is the simplest easiest and fastest way to keep gutters from clogging without spending a fortune.  No tools or fasteners required for installation.  Click here to see a short video on how only small amounts of debris can clog your gutter.  Click here to view a 56 second video about the simplicity of GutterBrush.  Rain gutter helmets, gutter covers, gutter screens, gutter mesh, leaf filters, 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 debris out of the rain gutter channel all year round while keeping the water flowing. Typical leaf guards are very expensive and they eventually do clog requiring expensive disassembly. They are notorious for creating a flat mat of debris laying on top, which becomes a ramp that causes the rain water to bypass the gutter altogether.   The GutterBrush Gutter Guard eliminates clogged and overflowing rain gutters that contribute to rot and water damage of the soffit, trim, sills, landscaping, walls, fascia boards, foundation, basement, and crawl spaces. Other systems are very expensive and complicated to install, however GutterBrush is self-positioning and installs quickly and easily with no tools and no fasteners making GutterBrush the best value.  Anyone who works on ladders or cleans gutters, can install GutterBrush quickly and easily; and if necessary, GutterBrush is easily maintained and renewed for long lasting continued performance.

If leaves and debris rest 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 caught in the top of the gutter guard bristles, but individual pieces of suspended debris can't cause a clog because it can not "clump together and flow to plug the gutter outlet tube".  Click here for a 33 second video.   With continual cycles of rain, sun and wind from multiple directions, 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 through the rain gutter. Water will continue to flow through the gutter guard and your rain gutters or eavestroughs will not clog!  GutterBrush keeps the gutter flowing.  Eventually, at some point it is very easy to maintain and renew, because there is no fastening required.  It keeps in-ground drainage clear too.

With pine needles, GutterBrush keeps gutters from clogging.  Click here to view a 1 minute video about small debris like pine needles and maple seeds. Although pine needles, maple seeds and other small tree debris may become caught in the top of the GutterBrush, they remain suspended and can no longer clump together and flow down the gutter creating a clog. Natural cycles of sun, rain, and abundant airflow help blow the debris from the gutter guard or promote rapid decomposition and break-down. Your rain gutters will remain protected and water will continue to flow.  Individual pieces of small debris can not create a clog themselves, unless they are allowed to clump together and flow down the gutter channel, which can not happen with GutterBrush. Additionally,  the bristles are directionally leading towards the center of the gutter and are directing the water into the gutter and not past the gutter.  Eventually, at some point, maintenance is easy by just removing the brushes and shaking them out, clean the gutter and reinstall completely renewed.  Click here for an article about GutterBrush and Pine needles .

GutterBrush is a K Style gutter guard, requiring no fastening. Click to view a 49 second video about the K-Style gutter.

Why GutterBrush GutterGuard

All gutter guards are not the same. Most leaf guard systems are very expensive requiring professional installation costing thousands more from $15. per foot to as much as $ 35. per foot. Many gutter guard systems become a "debris covered" wet mat ramp that actually causes rain water to overshoot the gutter. Some gutter guards that intersect with the roof, cause ice dams and cause water to backup over the fascia; or cause leaf guard back-up under the roof shingles and cause leakage into the building. GutterBrush Gutter Guard provides simple clog protection that is different.  GutterBrush does not intersect or even touch the roof. The bristles draw rain water better than any other gutter guard. It comes in different sizes and lengths to accommodate various rain gutters, sizes and configurations, and can easily be inexpensively installed by the homeowner, a handyman, landscaper, painter, contractor of choice; or by a GutterBrush gutter guard installer.  The key is the speed and ease of our simple leaf guard installation which requires no tools or fasteners and keeps the leaf guard cost down.  All gutter guards require maintenance and GutterBrush is easy to maintain too. Other GutterGuards mislead by claiming that you will never have to clean your gutters again. GutterBrush is the easiest to install and maintain. At some point if necessary, just remove GutterBrush, bang the debris out, clean the gutter and reinstall completely renewed.

GutterBrush is simpler and it just works better.

GutterBrush Gutter Guard Installation

GutterBrush comes in five different sizes or diameters to fit the most common size gutters. Within each GutterBrush size, multiple box sizes or lengths are available.Our products are as follows.
Small for 4 inch gutters (actual brush diameter is 3.25")
Standard for 5 inch gutters (actual diameter is 4.25")
Oversized for 6 inch gutters (actual diameter is 5.25")
Extra Large for 7 inch gutters (actual diameter is 6.5")
Industrial for 8 inch gutters (actual brush diameter is 8")
The most common size of GutterBrush is Standard for 5 inch gutters. The most common Style of gutter, by far, is the K-Style gutter. If you have a K-Style gutter, you simply measure your rain gutter across the top horizontally from the back of the rain gutter (at the fascia) to the outermost tip of the gutter. 5 inch = Standard (most common) , 6 inch = Oversized. To see pictures of "How to Measure", click here https://www.gutterbrush.com/pages/how-to-measureto go to our "Fit My Gutter" page. If you have a K-style gutter, simply identify which size you have and order the appropriate GutterBrush size and footage. If you have some other size or style of gutter, residential sizing samples and commercial sizing samples ( 2 different sample boxes) are available for a portion of our sample cost. The residential sizing sample box (smp-res) contains 6" length samples of each of our 3 smallest residential size products for $ 7.95. The commercial sizing sample box (smp-com) contains 6" length samples of each of our 3 largest commercial size products for $ 9.95. Once again, if you have a K-style gutter you should not need sizing samples, however if you have some other style of gutter, the sizing samples box enables you to receive samples of 3 different sizes so that you can actually check the fit of each to determine the best most optimal GutterBrush product for your gutters.

GutterBrush's Fit Criteria: The best most optimal performance is achieved when the brush fills the gutter as much as possible without overly compressing the bristles.  Additionally it is also desirable that the brush creates a "raised profile"  or "crowns" or extends out the top of the gutter about an inch or two.  The raised profile increases surface area and also allows that debris that may lay on the brush is up higher than the sides of the gutter so that the wind can purge.  Since GutterBrush was originally designed for K-style gutters, the fit is always perfect when you purchase the right size.   Other style gutters can be fit by using the most optimal size of GutterBrush that follows the GutterBrush Fit Criteria.  As the Fit Criteria States, it is desirable that GutterBrush fills the gutter and extends or "crowns" out the top to create a raised profile, however with gutters which have a width that differs from the length, it is not always possible to fill the entire gutter and create the raised profile.  In such cases, an on-site decision can be made with sizing samples to determine the most optimal fit.   GutterBrush will work fine even if it does not fill the entire gutter or if it does  not necessarily extend or "crown " out the top creating the raise profile.   While these characteristics are desirable to create the best performance, GutterBrush works just fine when it does not necessarily have all of these characteristics because GutterBrush is, in itself, a protected flow chanel.  

No. If your rain gutters and downspouts are properly installed, in good condition with an adequate number of downspouts, the GutterBrush can be installed inside your existing clean rain gutters with no tools or fasteners needed; just fill the entire gutter from "end to end".    There is also one other GutterBrush advantage:  If you do choose to purchase new gutters and downspouts, GutterBrush is very inexpensive because when new gutters are being fabricated, GutterBrush can be inserted into the new gutter while it is being fabricated from the ground, thereby saving a step because the gutters can be "hung" with GutterBrush already inside.

No! The GutterBrush Gutter Guard does not need to be cut in fact no tools are necessary. The GutterBrush Gutter Guard ships in two lengths, 3 foot and 18 inches. When you come to the end of your rain gutter, if a section is too long, simply bend or fold the excess gutter guard brush back into itself to achieve the desired length. (installation tip: if the folded piece is a little bulky, install it and then spin it 1/4 turn so that the gutter contains the bulky portion.) GutterBrush gutter guards can also be bent around corners for a customized fit without cutting.

Yes! GutterBrush Gutter Guard is easily installed and will not interfere with or even touch roof surfaces such as Asphalt, Fiberglass, Cedar Shake, Slate, Tile, Rubber, Metal or other kinds of roof. It also works in combination with any rain gutter type including: K-Style, Half Round, Fascia Style, Copper, PVC, Aluminum, Galvanized or Stainless Steel. * GutterBrush Gutter Guard may be slightly more visible when used in 1/2 Round style gutters, but performs very well. Any good roofer will tell you that the goal is to get the water controlled and off of the roof as quickly as possible which is why it is insane to install a gutter guard that even touches the roof, decreases the slope of the roof, or creates a horizontal shelf aimed at the top edge of the fascia. Gutter Guards can burden roofs and even cause leaks by creating a "shelf" or barrier that in high winds or ice can cause water to be directed up under roof shingles, or back-up over the fascia and into the building. Gutters are not absolutely necessary on a roof, but when connected
to a roof they can be the cause of bad roof leakage.

Our record of customer satisfaction is unparalleled and we will do whatever it takes to protect that record. As a result we will strive to solve your problem immediately with a call to our main number at +1 888-397-9433.  On staff we have over 25 years of roofing and exterior construction experience available to take your call and provide coaching.  Often customers will send pictures and discuss challenges; we work with them to help them understand any challenges as well as to help arrive at the simples most cost effective D.I.Y. or Do It Yourself solution.   When starting with a solution that requires no tools or fasteners, our coaching and suggestions tend to stay on the easier side of the spectrum.

Your rain gutters will remain clear and flowing after the installation of GutterBrush Gutter Guard.   Gutters can continue to flow freely even with debris lodged in the bristles.  The debris and the bristles actively gather and direct water down into the gutter; however, if you ever do need to address gutter debris or a trouble spot, renewing your GutterBrush and 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 or bang it onto a hard surface causing the debris to release; clean the gutter and then easily slide the GutterBrush back into place.  Other gutter solutions allow debris to flow within the gutter but not GutterBrush.  GutterBrush suspends any debris, therefore it now also becomes possible to perform minimal or partial maintenance to solve an issue.  GutterBrush customers also enjoy the fact that partial maintenance now also makes sense.

GutterBrush Gutter Guard Problems

GutterBrush does not touch or get fastened to the roof so it has no effect on the roof whatsoever.  Ice dams are typically the result of a combination of improper insulation and a lack of soffit ventilation resulting in unnatural melting or a  “warm roof”  which becomes susceptible to ice dams and daily worsening of the condition.  GutterBrush does not cause icing or ice problems as it is entirely confined to the gutter and has no effect on the roof. However, GutterBrush decreases gutter icing and improves the performance of the gutter in the winter.  What many do not realize is that snow causes gutter clogs in an unprotected gutter.  Without GutterBrush, snow causes clogged winter gutters during melting or rain, and then the gutter fills with water and freezes to a solid block of ice that evening. With GutterBrush in the gutter, the snow tends to sit only atop of the brush and the flow channel stays protected from outlet tube to outlet tube, so that during rain or melting, the water is capable of flowing out the outlet tubes and down the down spouts, so you get fewer occurrences of icing.   Day by day, the condition actually improves (rather than worsening)  because the melting water can flow out rather than making the ice larger during slow melting.  Additionally, the mere fact that the black bristles which are exposed absorb the sun's warmth and transfer that heat to the wire core accelerating natural melting.  Click here https://www.gutterbrush.com/pages/winter-performance to go to our Winter Performance page and see pictures and learn more.   GutterBrush is compatible and can be used in conjunction with heat tapes or heat melting wires.   GutterBrush customers express a great decrease in ice and icicles.

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.  In most gutters, the black bristles extend about an inch to an inch and a half above the edge of the gutter and due to the height of most homes, they are not visible because of the angle of the viewer looking upward.   In cases where the bristles might be visible, a dark dip edge behind the brush further acts to decrease detectability.  Samples can be acquired to set in your gutter and view.
