Clean Sweep Gutter Guards 

CLEAN SWEEP Gutter Guards are uniquely designed and perforated for positive drainage, even in strong storm conditions.

It's a safe , effective and economical alternative to having your gutters cleaned routinely. Its weather resistant. They wont rust, corrode or dent. CLEAN SWEEP has a beautiful low profile design that blends in with the gutters and roofing system. It is available in 6 standard colors and copper custom colors are also available. 

The back of the profile features a unique rubber-based insert that is set at a 30 degree angle to sit on top of the hangers. It provides added support and ensures positive drainage. The rubber is impervious to the damaging effects of hot and cold temperatures including harmful UV rays, which means it will not rot or become brittle. The opening width allows maximum rain water flow, while restricting leaves & other debris.

Gutter Guards Installation Considerations

1. When making this decision there are a few important things to consider. First and foremost is the effectiveness and performance of the product. Does the Leaf Guards product compromise the entire purpose of having gutters? Some Gutter Guards will do a fine job at keeping the debris out of the gutters, but they do not collect heavy rainwater fast enough, so it spills over the edge of the gutter onto the side of the home or onto the ground.

2. Affordability is obviously a major factor. Some brand name leaf guards, filters, and helmets can cost as much as $20 - $40 per linear foot. For an average home with 200 linear feet of gutter, you could be looking at $4k - $8k just to have gutter guards installed on to your existing gutter systems. We have had clients show us estimates for over $10k. Let Golden Hammer Gutters help save your money.

3. Another other key factor that you may not have considered is the maintenance. There is no such thing as a maintenance free gutter system. No matter what type of leaf guard protection product that you have installed, it will not be maintenance free. There is a big misconception when it comes to this subject. Many big brand name leaf guard companies will say something like “...never clean your gutters again.” These corporations’ strategy is to charge you so much money upfront that when they inevitably need to return to clean or maintain your gutter system, you basically already paid for that return visit and then some.

Do  Gutter Guards  Work? Should I Invest?

Do Gutter Guards Work?
Do gutter guards work? Yes, most gutter guards work, but depending on the slope of the roof, type of roofing material, trees in the area, and amount of rain, some types of gutter guards may not be suitable for your home. Some gutter guards and leaf guards will prevent debris from entering the gutter systems more effectively than others, but no gutter guard is absolutely maintenance free. In other words, no gutter guard can entirely ensure that your gutters will never become clogged. However, choosing decent leaf guards will significantly decrease the frequency of necessary gutter cleaning or overall gutter maintenance required and reduce the possibility of harm to your home caused by clogged gutters. Each style of gutter guard type has its own advantages and disadvantages, and this article offers a breakdown of the most popular gutter cover styles, highlighting their benefits and drawbacks.

The entire purpose of gutters is to collect the rainwater that is shed from your roofing surface, redirect that water, and ultimately disperse it away from your home’s foundation. This process prevents dirty roofing water from running down the sides of your home and/or splashing down onto the ground eventually eroding the soil around your home’s supportive foundation. Therefore, the effectiveness of gutter guards or leaf guards are often disputed, and so the question remains, do gutter guards work? The short answer is yes, but the long answer is that it depends on the type of gutter guards that you are having installed onto your gutters and your overall expectations.  Read More...
