Why Solid Gutter Covers Work Best In KC
Solid surface gutter covers are the best form of gutter protection because they are able to block both large and small debris from entering the gutter. Meaning that you will never have to clean your gutters again.
The Big Question Is:
‘How Much Rain Can Solid Gutter Covers Handle?’
Advantage Gutter Guard ® has been third party tested to handle more than 3 times the rain of a typical Kansas City rainstorm. In order to surpass Advantage Gutter Guard’s ® capacity, Kansas City would have to meet the world-record for the heaviest rainfall ever recorded.
In other words, ‘Bring on the rain!’
Advantage Gutter Guard ® can handle anything that Kansas City can throw at it! Including ‘Cats and Dogs’ – metaphorically speaking, of course.

Gutter Protection Products Without Surface Tension
Many leaf filters, micro-meshes, screens and store-bought gutter guards don’t employ surface tension in their design. Therefore, they have to create holes in the top of their products to allow water in.
The Problem With Screens
These holes allow small debris in as well. Remember, a single tree can drop a tremendous amount of seeds, pollen, sap and needles – more than enough to slip into, or block the holes and clog your gutters and the leaf filter or screen itself.
This means the homeowner has to clean not just his gutters, but his gutter screens too!
Some leaf filters try to side-step this problem by having a micro-mesh screen – too small for anything but dirt and water to enter.
The Problem With Micro-Mesh Leaf Filters
While keeping debris out of the gutter, the micro-mesh leaf filters have a different problem – the pollen, tree sap, oak tassels and other sticky debris gets trapped on the micro mesh and covers the micro-perforations.
Think of a micro-mesh leaf filter like a furnace filter – the filter keeps dirt from circulating through the house but the dirt eventually clogs the filter and chokes the furnace so it can’t move air once the filter is clogged. Just like that furnace filter, maintenance is required with a gutter filter since huge amounts of debris fall from trees.
The result of a clogged gutter filter is that rainwater has no way to enter the gutters. This can force thousands of gallons of water to flow over your gutters, down the face of your soffit, fascia and siding ending up in a pool around your foundation.
Solid Gutter Covers VS Screens & Micro-Mesh Leaf Filters
Solid gutter covers like Advantage Gutter Guard ® use physics and surface tension. This design allows water in while ensuring leaves, pine needles, spinners, seeds, gum balls, flower petals, even birds and squirrels cannot get into your gutters. Creating a permanent solution.
Non-water adhesion based covers like screens, micro-mesh leaf filters and store bought products reduce how often gutters need to be cleaned, but gutters will still need to be cleaned – along with the screen or micro-mesh leaf filter.
