gutter can cause problems at the roof line. The fascia boards that hold the gutter system are often made of wood, and when gutters fill with water, the boards start to rot. The built-up organic matter also provides a prime spot for insect infestation. And in cold cli- mates, clogged gutters can freeze and create ice dams that prevent water from draining off the roof, eventually causing it to seep into the home. We recently installed some sleek-looking gutter products from E-Z Gutter, which offers a wide variety of gutter protectors to eliminate clogs from debris. The slotted metal surface cap- tures runoff but screens out leaves and debris to keep the water flowing freely. Installation of the covers could not be sim- pler. Aside from a ladder, you don’t even need tools, because the covers simply snap into place against the front and back ridges of the gutter. A gutter system will protect your foundation, and the gutter covers will protect your roof.
The E-Z Shield product is designed for residential gutters and fea- tures a black powder-coat that heats up in sunlight to melt snow and ice.
Finish the installation with a test run of water. Seal all joints and seams with a top-quality gutter sealant like Titebond.
The SpoutOff is 4 powder-coated 0.040 aluminum parts that increase the size
of all standard rain gutter outlets 4X. The SpoutOff also enables all users --
Homeowners, Facility Managers, etc. -- to remove their 1, 2 even 3-story
downspouts so they can check all outlets quickly and safely while standing
DOWN ON THE GROUND! No tools needed. No ladder needed!
(Note: A 2-story downspout only weighs about 6 pounds).
