US Home Exteriors uses aluminum gutter guards with metal brackets, not plastic. The aluminum is weather resistant, does not rust or crack. Aluminum prevents erosion over time, and small rodents often gnaw on plastic. The reverse curve system required proper installation. Our professional installers get training to properly install the gutter guard at the appropriate angle for maximum protection and efficiency. The covered system eliminates gutter cleaning and protects your gutters from excessive wear, extending the life expectancy of your gutter installation.
In comparison, a gutter system that uses a screen keeps out large pieces but allows small debris. More garbage getting through can create a blocked gutter and still requires annual cleaning. More importantly, a screen enables snow to build up in the gutter trough and form into ice. Massive ice buildup weighs down on the channels and pulls down forcefully on your roof, causing damage to the gutters and eventually the structure of your roof.
