Microfilters Offer Pacific Northwest Homeowners
The Ultimate In Gutter-Clog Prevention
Micromesh Gutter Guards Block The Smallest Debris,
Including Pine & Fir Needles.
Seattle, WA — MasterShield gutter guards represent the state of the art in preventing pine needles and other debris from accumulating in gutters and letting rainwater flow through downspouts. Their micromesh guards are constructed of high-quality aluminum and surgical-grade stainless steel and are strong enough to hold up to 20 pounds per foot of snow or debris.
Here, in the usually soaking-wet Pacific Northwest, our homes need all the protection from the elements that they can possibly get. That begins with the roof and gutters effectively channeling rainwater away from the home and its foundation. It’s challenging enough keeping a home’s gutters clear, and many homes have mounted gutter guards to help with the task.
But depending on where you live and the kind of tree canopy found in your neighborhood, typical gutter protection systems aren’t up to the task in this area. Sure, they may help keep out foliage and debris from broadleaf deciduous trees, but in many areas, those aren’t the real problem. Wherever fir trees surround and tower over homes, a gutter’s biggest problem is pine needles — those small, often sticky slivers of evergreen goodness that blanket our driveways, patios, landscaping, and roofs nearly year-round, and that can make their way through most conventional gutter-installed leaf guard systems.
Pine needles create the kinds of blockages in gutters and downspouts that can cause serious flooding problems for homeowners.
The solution: gutter guards with microfiltration. The technology has been used in surgical, industrial and water filtration applications for decades, but has only recently been applied to something as everyday as residential gutters.
The key is to have a patented microfiltration system that’s capable of blocking all debris, yet is strong and flexible enough to allow water to flow through it unimpeded while shedding debris.
MasterShield gutter guards represent the state of the art in preventing pine needles and other debris from accumulating in gutters and letting rainwater flow through downspouts. Their micro mesh guards are constructed of high-quality aluminum and surgical-grade stainless steel and are strong enough to hold up to 20 pounds per foot of snow or debris.
MasterShield’s microfilters can block any debris larger than half the width of a human hair. This means that not only pine needles, leaves, maple seeds (those little helicopter seed pods) and the small gritty particles from composite roofing won’t get trapped in your gutters and rain spouts; but also that animal nests, pests, and other junk won’t find sanctuary within your gutters as well.
MasterShield gutter systems are not only microfiltered, they’re also angled to allow leaves, needles, and debris to slide right off. By contrast, other typical gutter guard products are positioned horizontally, allowing debris to pile up and decompose, and blocking rainwater from flowing into the gutter at all.
What’s more, that decomposing debris can become a haven where dangerous mold can multiply and ultimately spread to other parts of a home. For proof, the local exclusive MasterShield installer’s website, www.leaflessinseattle.com, shows some compelling design and technology comparisons between MasterShield and other leading gutter guard systems.
The company website says that MasterShield’s angled installation enables them to be self-cleaning, as debris is continually washed across and down the surface of the guards. Their angled installation matches each roof’s pitch, which is an important attribute that ensures MasterShield gutter guards will serve to help protect the roof of your home and won’t compromise a roof’s warranty.
Leafless In Seattle also says that MasterShield gutter guards not only protect the gutters but also help protect a home’s siding, fascia, landscaping, and foundation as well.
The result is an effective, maintenance-free system that keeps gutters clean and clear. Not only can MasterShield gutter guards be installed on both new and existing gutters, they come with a 100% no clog, money-back guarantee.
