Leaf Protection| Precision Gutters Ltd | Surrey BC
The Leaf Screen has a gotten a bad rep from sleazy sales reps and false advertising, but at the end of the day, it’s still one of the best ways to minimize plugging of your gutter and perimeter drains. Nothing eliminates the need for maintenance, but a Leaf Screen reduces the difficulty and frequency that maintenance is required. Precision Gutter’s Perforated Leaf Screen is one of the strongest, most efficient screens on the market. The design actually strengthens your gutter system against snow, ice and hail damage.
The installation of a leaf screen to gutters can be effective in reducing routine maintenance. Despite marketing efforts by several manufactures, there is no magic system which eliminates maintenance, nor is there a single product which works in every situation. Foliage, building location, roof pitch and aspect are contributing factors in determining the type of system and frequency of maintenance required. We offer several options tailored for each unique application.
Why do gutters clog?
Apart from the debris which finds its way into the gutters, the major components of any gutter system is the size of the outlet or drain. A small opening will dam with debris much quicker than a larger one. Large leaves will quickly clog any system.
What damage can be done?
Over flowing gutters can literally be carrying over a ton of water on a typical home, straining the fasteners and gradually causing them to loosen. Water damage to the structure, potential leaks into the home, rot and mildew are good reasons to maintain your gutter system.
The leaf catcher is an innovation engineered and produced by the owners of Precision Gutters. Leaf Catchers run on a different theory than Leaf Screens. Instead of keeping the debris up at roof level, Leaf Catchers work by allowing it to run down the downpipe and then catching said debris at a convenient height near ground level. This system works most efficiently with 2 3/4″ flush mount outlets or K- Funnel outlets. Simple and effective, the Leaf Catcher prevents large particles from entering the perimeter drains which could clog the rain gutter system along with potentially expensive repairs. Installed to existing downpipes near ground level, the sloped design promotes self cleaning and debris is easily removed by hand.
Install alone to prevent underground drainage problems, or modify your gutters with a Leaf screen, K-Funnel and Leaf Catcher system for minimal maintenance.
