Leafless Seamless Gutters MN | Leafless Gutters MN
For many people, a common spring chore is hauling the ladder out of the garage, putting on a pair of gloves, and picking all the leaves out of the rain gutters. Clogged gutters can cause serious damage to your roof, walls, and very foundation of your home. By installing leaf free gutters right over your existing gutters, you can let rain water in while keeping troublesome leaf debris out.
Leaf Free Gutters Prevent Clogs
A standard rain gutter is designed to direct rain water from your roof. This helps keep water away from the walls of your house which can cause rot and other problems. But how do leaves get in there in the first place? Leaves fall from overhanging trees or they simply get blown onto your roof from neighboring areas. When it rains, the leaves slip down into your gutters.
Among the most common problems caused by leaf-stuffed gutters is added stress to your house or building. In addition to the added weight of the water-logged leaves, the extra debris inside the gutter system means that water is no longer free to be drained off your roof. With nowhere else to go, the water drains directly into your walls causing cracks and leaks as well as damage to the inside of your walls and your building. In time, this damage can lead to moldy walls and cracked foundations.
While you can just clean the leaves out yourself, you’d spend a lot of time constantly climbing up your roof. Since leaves don’t just fall off trees in the autumn but also during rain storms or high winds, many leaves end up on your roof.
In addition, many people don’t really have the right kind of equipment necessary to be spending hours on a worn-out, rickety ladder trying to free up a clogged gutter. And accidents are quite prevalent in these circumstances when they can be avoided. Thankfully, there are leaf proof gutters that can make your life much easier.
How Do Leaf Free Gutters Work?
Leaf free gutters work by taking advantage of strong water adhesion. This means that even though the leafless gutter wall juts out past your regular gutter with only a 1/2-inch gap for the rainwater to flow through, it still flows back into your previously existing gutter. The leaf free gutter system guides the water safely into the rain gutter, while not giving leaves and other debris a chance to clog up your otherwise efficient gutter.
The Science Behind the System
How do these gutter guard systems keep water flowing freely into gutters and at the same time keep debris out? The simple, scientific principle of liquid adhesion. As water flows over the downward slope of these gutter guards it adheres to the product because of the molecular attraction between the surface of gutter guard and the surface of the water. The water is carried down into channels, then through its drain holes into your gutter. At the same time, leaves, needles, seedlings and other debris fall over the downward steps of the gutter guard system and onto the ground below.
Time after time, on homes like yours, these gutter guard systems have proven effective in significantly cutting down or eliminating gutter clogging and debris buildup while maintaining water flow.
