Rain Gutter Screens

Rain Gutter Screens

Homes that are surrounded by many trees or that have tall trees a short distance away will often have a recurring problem with leaves and small branches being blown onto the roof and into the gutters during storms. To keep these from clogging gutters and downspouts it is a good idea to install metal or plastic mesh guards over the gutters to keep leaves out.

Rain gutter guards and screens help to lower the amount of maintenance and gutter cleaning. Gutter guards prevent leaves, pine needles, sticks and other debris from going in the gutters. Anything that accumulates on top of the screen will be eventually washed off by the rain or blown off the surface with the wind.

Gutter Screens

There are several different types of rain gutter guards but the most common are heavy duty plastic. The plastic gutter guards come in a variety of colors and sizes to match your gutters. The gutter guards have large holes on the surface and a fine screen attached underneath. The large holes allows water to drain properly and the fine screen prevent debris from going into the gutters.

Downspout Strainers

A downspout strainer is small screen installed inside the gutters where the gutters and the downspouts meet. The strainers prevent leaves and sticks from going down the downspouts and into the ground drains. The ground drains can easily become clogged if too much debris goes down the downspouts.

These come in two basic types. One is a simple cage that fits into the top of the downspout opening at the bottom of the gutter. The other is in the form of a continuous length of wire mesh (it can be metal or plastic) that covers the entire length of the gutter and thus keeps leaves and other debris from getting into the gutter in the first place.

This type of strainer are a bulb-shaped cage that catch leaves before they get into the downspout. The strainer will keep the downspout from getting clogged and will keep the leaves from washing into the ground drains. It still requires you to clean out the debris on a regular basis because debris builds up near the stainer. If too much debris gets packed near the strainer then the gutter will fill up with water and overflow.

Downspout Strainer

Covering the whole gutter with a wire or plastic mesh gutter guard is usually much more effective since it keeps leaves from getting into the gutter in the first place. The gutter guards snap to the outside edge of the gutter and the other side slips up under the roof shingles. Some brands come with special clips that can be used to secure them to the roof instead.
