Gutters important to drain water accumulates on the roof to prevent damage to the roof and side of the building. Stagnant water on the roof can damage roof in the long run. And if water is spilled, the side walls can be damaged as well. Leaves and debris can clog gutters often, reducing their efficiency. Therefore it is necessary to install a gutter protection system that will prevent debris from entering the gutter and clog them.
Sheet screens and mesh gutter protection systems are made of metal consisting of a thin mesh to allow water to seep through the gutter. The metal cover fits inside the gutter and over the top as well. The mesh acts as a strainer to prevent debris and leaves from entering the gutter. This allows the water to run freely through the gutter and out through the downspout. Over a period of time, sheets and debris can completely block the mesh. Therefore, periodic cleaning of debris is essential to keep the ditch protection system running efficiently.
This type of gutter protection system operates on the principle of water adherence. Unlike the mesh system where the water inlet is on top, this system has slots or small holes along the vertical side or the bottom of the cover. The strategic location of the slots prevents the possibility of debris clogging. Normally, debris does not stick to the sides or underside of the covers. The water on the other hand would adhere to the surface due to the surface tension and then finally enter the slots and run the drain freely. This system is therefore more likely to clog with debris from the mesh system.
