Accessing your gutters for cleaning is not a safe do-it-yourself project. Most homeowners do not know how to safely set up a ladder, and it can be expensive to purchase a quality ladder.
Rain-A-Way Exteriors recommends Xtreme Gutter Guard as our best performing product. Xtreme features surgical grade stainless steel micromesh interlocked onto an aluminum substrate. This system prevents all leaves and debris from entering the gutter including pine needles and roof shingle granules. Debris that lies on top of the mesh simply blows off with a gentle wind.
Rain-A-Way also installs Leaf Relief, which is a perforated flat aluminum cover that prevents the majority of debris from entering the gutter. Any debris small enough to get past the small holes will flush out of the gutter with rainfall. Leaf Relief is also available in copper for both standard sizes and 1/2 round style gutters.
Rain-A-Way also offers other more economical, but less effective, gutter cover systems such as SureFlow or standard drop-in aluminum mesh gutter covers.
