FITTING:  When fitting gutters with GutterBrush, you would like to fill the gutter as best as possible without overly compressing the bristles.  It is desirable, however not necessary, for the brush to have a "crowned" or "raised profile" higher than the outer edge of the gutter, so that the wind can purge leaves, however achieving the raised profile is not always possible for the following reasons

  • Many metal building gutters have an outside edge that is actually higher than the roof drip edge, thus in such a situation iwt would not be desirable to have a raised profile higher than the outside edge
  • With many of these gutter styles, the width of the gutter is a different dimension from the height , thus the raised profile may not be achievable because the brush profile is round.  Example: a gutter that is deeper than it is wide, may not be able to achieve a raised profile.  GutterBrush is, in itself, a protected flow channel so it will work well even without the raised profile.

Getting the right GutterBrush product for your gutter.  In order to decide which GutterBrush will work best inside your gutter, you can measure the inside dimensions to determine which GutterBrush product will best fill your gutter without overly compressing the bristles.   Such can be a challenge because many of these gutters have complicated shapes with multiple angles and corners. The best way to be sure you purchase the optimal size is as follows.

  • Purchase our commercial sizing sample pack ( SKU smp-com ) which contains 6" length samples of our three largest sizes.  These samples are free of charge with a limit of one per customer, however we do ask for a payment to ship these samples (currently $8.95 to ship).
  • When you receive the samples, set each one in the gutter and decide which size best fills the gutter without overly compressing the bristles   Be careful to purchase the commercial sizing samples and not the residential.   Click here to go to Sizing Samples
  • Another option is to print our sizing chart and use the chart to (scissors) cut out circles that match the diameter of our brushes, set these circles into the gutter to determine the best fit. Click here to go to the sizing chart

More about metal building gutters, steel building gutters.   Customers love GutterBrush for their metal building gutters because installation is simple and it works great.  People with these types of gutters are very limited, other gutter guard products are not appropriate for these scenarios, do not fit, or require labor intensive work in order to customize the gutter guard to fit.  Most metal buildings have gutters which the front edge of the gutter is much higher than the back edge of the gutter and also higher than even the roof drip edge; they are built this way for aesthetics, so that when looking from the ground you do not see the ribs of the roof.  In other words, the building looks better with such a gutter.  Unfortunately, when such a gutter clogs and fills up with water, often the gutter leaks backwards into the building because the back edge is lower, therefore the natural  path of least resistance is for the water to leak back into the building.  For this reason, these customers love GutterBrush because they need a system to keep the gutter from clogging so they can avoid leakage.   To continue to avoid gutter clogs and leakage, at some point, Gutterbrush can be easily renewed because there are no fasteners; simply remove the brushes, bang the debris out, clean the gutter and re-install GutterBrush.
