Stop Cleaning Your Connecticut Gutters
Do you spend hours on a shaky ladder mucking out leaves, twigs and slime from your Connecticut gutters? Yes, it is important to keep the gutters clean. But doesn’t it make more sense to keep leaves and debris out in the first place?
Vinylume is proud to offer Leafproof®, a gutter protection system that really works for our Fairfield and Westchester gutter customers. No other gutter cover system offers a more effective shield against leaves and debris in your gutters Connecticut!
The Leafproof® system keeps leaves and other debris out of in your home’s gutters so that water can flow freely. It is suitable for all gutter styles and withstands exposure to sun, wind and weather extremes.
Except in areas where the roof line has concentrated water flow (such as an inside valley), water flowing off the roof does not shoot to the front of the gutter. It simply follows the roof line, on to the drip edge which is under the shingles, and down the back of the gutter. The reason that the water does not shoot to the front lip is that water clings to the surface it is flowing over. This is known as surface tension. Surface tension can best be visualized by slightly tipping a glass of water and watching the water run down the side of the glass.
Leafproof® makes surface tension work for you, the homeowner. The “S” bend causes the water flow to reverse and churn, which slows the momentum of the water as it comes off the roof. The “S” bend also permits the portion of the Leafproof® panel which covers the gutter, to be installed at a fairly level slope. This reduces the speed of the water even more. As a result, when the water flow reaches the Leafproof® water channel, the water flow once again reverses and drains into the gutter.
There are other gutter covers on the market that work in a similar manner. However, these gutter covers do not have Leafproof® patented “S” bend. This means these covers must be installed under the second row of shingles and are often screwed or nailed into the roof.
