Gutter Guards By
Atlanta Gutter Experts
Gutter guards, also known as gutter protection systems, are designed to keep leaves, twigs, and other debris out of your gutters, allowing water to flow freely through the gutters and downspouts. While gutter guards can be effective at preventing clogs in some cases, they may not work on all houses for a variety of reasons. Here are a few possibilities:
The gutter guards are not a good fit for the specific type of roof on the house. Some gutter guard systems are designed for use on certain types of roofs (e.g., shingle roofs, tile roofs), and may not be effective on others.
The gutter guards are not installed correctly. Gutter guards need to be installed correctly in order to be effective. If they are not properly aligned or secured, they may not work as intended.
The gutter guards are not compatible with the size or shape of the gutters. Some gutter guard systems may not fit properly on gutters that are wider or narrower than standard sizes, or that have an unusual shape.
The gutter guards are not suitable for the climate or weather conditions in the area. Some gutter guard systems may not be able to withstand extreme weather conditions, such as heavy snow or strong winds.
The gutter guards do not have a good design. Some gutter guard systems may not be effective at keeping debris out of the gutters because they have a poorly designed mesh or filter.
It's also worth noting that gutter guards may not be necessary for all houses. If a house has few trees around it or if the trees do not shed a lot of leaves and debris, gutter guards may not be necessary. In these cases, regular cleaning and maintenance of the gutters may be sufficient to keep them functioning properly.
Atlanta Gutter Experts spent years evaluating the reasons other leaf protection systems have failed and set out to perfect the technology of hooded gutter systems with the intent to minimize leaf debris penetration while maximizing the longevity, ease of maintenance and rainwater collection capabilities.

How it Works
Our gutter covers use two principles of water to direct rainwater runoff into the gutter system while keeping it free of debris that can cause it to clog. These principles are Cohesion and Adhesion.
Cohesion stated simply is the attraction of similar molecules to each other. In the case of water, it will clump and form water droplets instead of spreading out.
Adhesion is similar to cohesion except that it is the attraction of dissimilar particles to one another. In the case of water and gutters, water will adhere or stick to the surface of the hood of the gutter a fraction longer than the other leaves and debris the water is carrying. The adhesion to and around the lip of the hood allows the water to fall into the trough.
The Nose of our gutter guard passes the front edge of the gutter which lets the least amount of trash into the gutter system because the gutter cover carries the debris past the entrance of the gutters. Cohesion and Adhesion will still carry the water back around the hood and into the gutter system.
When sloped properly the large amount of water flow in the gutter system flushes out any small debris that may have entered the gutter system.
