Rain Gutter Guards - Do they work?

Rain Gutter Guards - Do they work?

I have been getting spam wanting me to be a dealer/installer for gutter guard protectors. b2ap3_thumbnail_1Michael_Leavitt_160_20130418-202348_1.jpgI am not tempted to take them up on their “Special Offer” but they made me stop and think about the few that I have encountered over the years while inspecting homes along the Wasatch Front of Utah.

What is you experience? Do these things really work? As a home inspector here in Orem, Utah when I see a tree I know it was planted by man. That is just the nature of living in a high desert area. In mature neighborhoods we do have tall trees and do have issues with leaves and debris. In the newer neighborhoods it will be another 10 years before their trees are tall enough to be an issue. In the local mountains they can’t have gutters because of the heavy snow that slides off the roofs and rips off gutters with it. 

If you have any experience with gutter guard systems, then please share... Do these systems work? Or are they all junk?

Take a look at the email info...
