Gutter Guards Leaf Filters

What Are Gutter Guards?

Cleaning gutters is an important step to prevent leaves, pine needles, and even wildlife from clogging your drainage system.

​Gutter guards can prevent this, but there are different styles to select between: screens, surface tension, and mesh. They each prevent a clogging issue, but have different components.

Screens are the most common type of gutter guard installed, but that doesn’t mean they’re the solution to all your problems.

Although gutters are designed to protect the clogging of your drain from debris, a guard is often necessary. Screens are slid between the shingles of your roof and the underlayment, or between two layers of shingles.

Micros Mesh & Ice Do Not Mix

While these are easy to install, especially if you have old, brittle shingles, they can get plugged—the openings in the screen can get clogged with debris, and they often need to be cleaned out. 

Micro mesh screens are also not a good option for Colorado where snow and ice can clog the mesh and prevent ice melt run off. ​

This can cause pooling of snow melt on top of your gutter and roofs, causing further damage.

What Type of Gutter Guard is Best?

 Our perforated system keeps out leaves/larger debris, are efficient to install, and inexpensive. They work with several different types of roofs, including shingles, steel and tile.

Also, UV rays from the bright Colorado sunlight landing on your roof may cause plastic guards to split and become brittle.  However, since Legacy insists on the dark brown color of their aluminum guards, this leaf filter system absorbs the heat from the sun, enhancing ice and snow melt which will flow off your roof.
Water can slip into the rounded holes in this gutter guard, and your gutter is protected from leaves and other larger debris. These can protect your gutters from branches, snow/ice, and strong winds.

Why Use Legacy Premium Gutter Guards?

Legacy Leaf filters are an aluminum ridged gutter protection system, so you wont have to worry about it warping or deteriorating over time.

It can prevent birds, squirrels and insects from building nests inside your gutters.

​It does not interfere with your roof, and can strengthen your entire gutter system, ensuring it’s strong enough to handle buildup from Colorado’s snow. 

The unique ridging design enhances water & debris flow down and out of the gutter tray. 

While there are many gutter guard options, the large  perforated version keeps unwanted debris from blocking the necessary drainage—debris so tiny, it is allowed to slip through the holes in the perforation and funnel off the roof, away from the house. The self-cleaning ridges in Legacy gutter guards make this a very safe, effective way to prevent the clogging of your gutters.

The entirely aluminum construction also prevents contortion of your gutter guard. Further, this type of protection works to strengthen your existing gutter system.
