Will the trough in the front of the gutter guard cause debris to pile up?
The front trough acts as a motivator for the water to go straight into the gutter rather than dripping over the side. Other micro-mesh gutter guards that do not have a trough, and are flat, tend to have water go straight over the gutter causing dripping and unsightly staining on the side of your gutter.
As for debris collecting on top of the gutter guard, with a combination of the wind and the rain, most of the debris typically just blows and washes right off of our gutter guard. However all gutter guards do have to be maintained periodically. Most people blow or brush any remaining debris off of the gutter guard.
Robert Lenney invented “The Gutter Guard Brush” for cleaning off the tops of any gutter guard. For more information visit The Gutter Guard Brush.
