There is no perfect gutter protection system. Most systems will provide some protection against leaves and twigs, but all systems will experience some environmental conditions where they will not perform optimally. Prices vary wildly, and not all gutter protection systems are available for retail purchase. Some systems require installation to be performed by the local franchise operator at considerable cost.
We have evaluated numerous gutter protection systems and recommend MicroGuard. This is an strong aluminum screen system with the same thickness as the gutter. It is easy to install and available for the do it yourself homeowner. It can be installed over existing gutters, requires minimal tools, and is reasonably priced. We have found that it will protect against pine needles as well as broad leaf trees, maple seeds, twigs, birds, bats, and bees, and small furry critters.
MicroGuard gutter screen features the latest in micro-filtration technology. Its angled micro-perforations effectively block large debris from sticking to the screen while efficiently clearing water into the gutter.
The new filter features a raised, stepped groove to prevent water from splashing back underneath roof shingles. Easy to install, the new MicroGuard does not penetrate shingles and won’t violate roofing material warranties.
