The leader in high performance stainless steel micro-mesh gutter protection systems for residential and commercial applications. Gutter guard by Gutterglove keeps out leaves, pine needles, roof sand-grit, and other debris from your gutter so you will never have to climb up a ladder again to clean your gutters. The patented v-bend technology (VBT) design allows the system to filter rainwater more effectively than other gutter covers. There are no support mechanisms needed under this high performance VBT stainless steel micro-mesh gutter protection system. This allows 100% of the holes to filter rainwater coming down your roof and into your gutter, whereas all other micro-mesh gutter guards have a mechanized support, blocking as much as 60% of the holes. This model contains 96 linear ft. Stainless steel mesh Atlas Gutter Guard. Patented design that is easy to install by fastening and or with 3M VHB tape. Keeps out leaves, pine needles, roof sand-grit, and other debris from your gutter. Innovative design prevents debris build up in gutters. Oversized stainless steel micro-mesh wire for superior strength and durability. UL approved for rainwater harvesting (NSF P151 and NSF 372). Average home has 160 ft. This product worked fantastically. It was also extremely easy to install. You may need a person to help you with installation because under the installation style we chose you need to lift up the shingles at the edge. And the pieces are 3 or 4 feet long. I tested the product out and it worked well. Water was able to enter the gutter but plant debris was kept out. I would definitely recommend this product. Look at my photos and the video for how it turned out. I used on a flat roof under a very large tree which drops pounds of leaves every rainstorm making gutter cleaning almost a weekly event. The gutter guards came with excellent installation instructions for various types of roof configurations. Also included were plenty of self-tapping hex head screws and a magnetic hex driver bit for your drill. The guards come with very strong 3M High Bond Tape attached to the front edge. The guard uses a stainless steel ribbed screen/mesh making it very rigid to reduce sagging and allowing rain to drop through easily with little to no runoff. I used adhesive Velcro squares on the building edge of the guard attached to the gutter’s support brackets instead of the supplied screws. This allows me to remove the guards if necessary without tools and the Velcro provided the recommended forward pitch to keep the gutter guard free of debris. I also cut and attached an 8 inch piece on each end of the gutter that can be easily lifted/removed and using the garden hose, rinse down any lingering sand that may accumulate in the gutter. These gutter guards are very well constructed and lightweight. The recent heavy rains drained easily into the gutters and the leaves and debris left on top of the guards blew off after it dried. The front and back edge frames cut easily with sharp tin snips and the stainless steel mesh cuts easily with a sharp blade in a standard utility knife. Installation on a 10 ft. Flat roof gutter took less than 2 hours including cleaning and cutting odd lengths and corners. I highly recommend this product and appreciate the time it saves me not having to clean gutters every week. This kit was easy to install. The pieces are easy to bend as needed, and at times too easy; you have to look down the length of them to make sure they’re straight. If it’s not, then the application process will be harder, and over the years I’m sure the high spots will pop up much easier. The instructions are very detailed and cover lots of various scenarios. I simply got up on the roof and carefully worked at the edge, but if you want to be safer, you can use a ladder with a stand-off. The screws come in a ziploc bag with a magnetic 1/4 locking hex driver/impact bit and there are more than enough to do the job, assuming you lose a few. Do NOT put these in your mouth like I did! I know it’s tempting to do so as it’s convenient, but find some other, safer way to hold them like a small tool belt or even a wrist magnet. I got what’s called a “metal fever” from the zinc coating, which means I may have reduced my lifespan by however long. The instructions say to use freshly sharpened metal/tin snips to cut the aluminum and mesh; I DO NOT recommend this, as the aluminum is very thick. I was able to cut through the aluminum part, but then the screw got loose (brand new quality snips, mind you) and they loosened up, so then I had a hard time cutting the thin mesh. Now theoretically if a self-tapping screw could somehow slip (which they typically don’t), there are channels conveniently laser-cut into the edge, right where the screw needs to go into the metal. Of course, the 3M tape seems to hold it even better than the screws, but since I’m an overkill at everything, I did it anyway. Using four screws per piece. The screws go easily into both layers of metal, without having to apply much pressure. The key is to go slowly and stop immediately when you see the two pieces of metal have tightened. If you strip the hole, then the screw will still hold, but not as strong as it would otherwise. The process goes surprisingly quick; once I power-washed my gutters out, I gave them about a half-hour on a hot day to dry, then I got all my tools up. I’d slightly bend one piece at a time to help it fit under the shingles, go through and slightly lift the shingles, peel one end of the tape protector off, stick the mesh between the shingles and metal on one side, then align and move, peel the rest off, press down to seal, and once I was done with all the pieces I popped in four screws per piece, one closer to each end and two in the middle. You almost have enough for five however. Then I’d quickly press down the shingles to make sure they’re flat again. This will cause some of the grit to come off, but the mesh is so fine it will catch all of this. It took me about an hour or a bit more to do a 50 foot span like this, so a VERY quick process indeed! Depending on your roof however, it may be a different scenario/timeframe for you, to which they’re all covered in the booklet. Overall, I like the professional look it gives the house, and with our trees growing up, it’ll prevent years of headaches and wasted weekends. I’m in an area with a lot of pine trees and I also have a very large roof area. Between the pine needles and all the shingle granules gathering in my gutters I always had a chronic problem with heavy buildup which was causing the gutters to start to pull away from the fascia on the house. The construction is heavy-duty aluminum and very fine screening material which is ribbed for added strength. When installing, I used a hacksaw to cut through the aluminum ends and a heavy-duty pair of scissors to cut through the screen part. The screening itself has very fine openings – much smaller than a typical window screen and is very thick, which means you don’t have to worry about it bowing over time. It’s also designed so the water goes into the gutter but the debris gets blown off the edge. The installation is pretty easy just as long as you wait until the shingles are warm enough to be able to lift the end that normally hangs in the gutter. I found it easiest to install by lifting one of the shingles enough to slip the gutter guard under the edge and then just keep lifting as you slide it in place, making sure it sits atop the back of the gutter itself. Once it’s in place you can peel off the adhesive strip to secure it if needed. There shouldn’t be any reason to have to screw them in place if you have asphalt or fiberglass shingles as the weight of the shingles themselves should be more than enough to hold them in place. You can’t really see them once they are installed since they sit on top of the gutter. I installed them on different sections of my roof that were a 3-12 pitch as well as a steeper 12-12 pitch and they both worked fine. I have a different brand of gutter guards on my house and the openings are so large that they get clogged by pollen and the roof granules get through and sit in the gutter (see picture comparison). When I build my detached garage apartment, I wanted a higher quality gutter guard on it; this fits the bill wonderfully. The openings on these guards are a very small mesh, much like a small “no see-ums” window screen material (possibly even smaller). This small mesh doesn’t block the water at all, but it blocks pretty much everything else from getting in… Even blocking the roof granules. There are several ways to install this, depending on what type of roofing material and slope you have. The guards are easy to bend by hand using 2×4’s and clamps, and I put about a 1 bend at the back to solve the problem. Normally you would screw the back of the guard in when you do this, but I found I had a metal lip on my gutter that these fit perfectly under and no screws were required. Each 4′ section took about 5 minutes to bend and install once I got the hang of it. These mount to the gutter using 3M VHB tape or 3 screws per 4′ section (both tape and screws included, along with a driver for the screws). When you get to an end or corner, you cut the piece to fit and then bend the extra mesh over to tuck inside the gutter, keeping birds and rodents out. You definitely need either new tin snips or _very_ well sharpened ones for this cutting. I’m much happier with these guards over my previous ones, and it is a huge time saver having these installed; I definitely recommend them. Local pickups NOT available at this time.
