The Importance of A Lindab Inline Leaf Catcher and Leaf ScreensDecember 9th, 2017 | by Mark Tulloch | in Gutter Cleaning | 0
Keeping your gutters from collecting leaves and debris can cut down on the overall maintenance of your gutter system. While nothing is a 100% solution, leaf screens for your Lindab gutters can help to keep the majority of larger debris from clogging your gutters. The rainy wet winter season in Vancouver is unavoidable, but keeping moisture away from your home with an effective set of gutters will help to prevent problems later on.
Leaf screens are the best way to keep your gutters as clean as possible. Reducing maintenance is important to most homeowners, and adding Precision Perforated leaf screens to your Lindab gutters is a good place to start. While there are many different factors that may affect the application of leaf screens, such as roof pitch and gutter location, it is often suitable for most applications.
While leaf screens work to stop leaves and debris from collecting in horizontal gutters, leaf catchers are installed closer to the ground on vertical portions of the gutter system. Installing these along with leaf screens helps to keep your gutters clean and therefore they will need less maintenance overall. The leaf catchers prevent larger leaves, branches and other debris from getting into the perimeter gutters, which can cause clogs and potential damages. Your existing Lindab gutter system can be fitted with leaf catchers after the fact and Precision Gutters sells them direct if you prefer to install them yourself.
Even if you install leave catchers and leaf screens, your gutters will still need to be cleaned, although the job won’t be as extensive. Precision Gutters can clean your gutters with our revolutionary cleaning system, the Vortex Vacuum, which will suck the debris out from your gutters into a truck with a holding tank, making the job easy for the homeowner.
