The front leg of the product screws to the front lip of the gutter, and the back upward bend allows it to be screwed directly to the fascia. This creates a slight forward slope. This installation creates “box girder” strength, making the gutter assembly, which is inherently weak by nature, a completely closed member. The micro-mesh handles an amazing 60 gallons of water per hour, ensuring that pine needles, twigs, leaves, twigs, oak tassels, shingle grit, and other small debris will never breach the system to enter into the gutters. The mesh is strategically sized to allow passage of pollen and dust so it is washed through during rainfall. It may be necessary from time to time to clean or remove stubborn debris (inorganic & organic) from the mesh surface to maintain the proper performance, but that is true with any gutter protection in the marketplace today.
The best part is NO roof or shingle contact is required.
