They work like a screen, letting water into the gutter but holding leaves and solid objects outside of it. this allows the water inside the gutters to flow freely without being blocked by these objects

There are many kinds of gutter guards, all of them have one purpose - to protect your gutters from leaves, tree branches and other types of litter that may get stuck inside the gutter and clog the entire system. There are many types of gutter guards to choose from. There's the gutter brush, which is basically a brush that gets installed inside your gutters, it lets the water pass through, but keeps any type of dirt from getting in. You can also get foam gutter guards, which will fill your system and only let through liquids. There are also various materials from which gutter guards can be made - nylon, mesh or screen. You can also get a reverse curve gutter guard, which is a hard cover, that gets installed on top of your gutters, it has small openings for water, but everything hard slides to the ground.

What does it happen when my gutters get clogged up?

Hey Mark,
Thanks a great questions I have been asked many times by other fellow Australians. So here's the deal.

Clogged gutters are among the prime reasons for fires in both the residential and commercial real estate sector. Bush fires are a common and disastrous events in places like Australia where the climate is harsh. Even in Sydney, one of the most populated cities in the country, the temperature often exceeds the bearable maximum and the air humidity is at its lowest. Despite being a coastal city, it's a region where bush fires can occur and homeowners need to be aware of the techniques that must be applied during the seasonal temperature peaks.

Reducing the dry vegetation around the property is an essential part of preventing any bush fire. Yet, there are many flammable materials and items which can be found outdoors and the clogged gutters are one of them.To prevent an unexpected ignition, homeowners should always keep their gutters dirt and grime-free.

While it is recommended that the removal of leafs and dirt should be done by a professional gutter cleaning team, homeowners can do still do it themselves while following the local regulations. In Sydney, for example, there are specific rules for water use in Sydney and working from heights should be complied with the state's requirements.In severe situations with a high risks of a fire, gutters must be filled with water to provide additional security for the building.

Here are the prime reasons you should take care of your gutters:
  • to prevent water damage
  • to prevent fire harardz
  • to prevent pest infestations

Here's some additional useful information:

Gutter attachment for leaf blower

Would that work for seamless gutter? We are going to replace ours and we had been looking into getting the seamless kind cause they looked fairly easy to deal with. It would be awesome if that leaf blower attachment worked for our gutters.

Can I extend the length of the blower tube on my 125BT blower?

I tried that (once). Used ABS plastic from Lowes to make a custom gutter cleaner, attached to a big ECHO back-pack leaf blower. Several problems: 1) Pipe is heavy, so put a couple of 90 degree elbows on the end to "hook" onto the gutter. 2) Need to wear a rain suit, because of the NASTY decomposed leaves raining down. 3) The air tended to lift the shingles (very bad). I only tried it once and don't recommend trying it. The same idea with a garden hose may work better? Eventually, leaf guards were installed with limited success.

Easy Flow Gutter Guards are the only gutter guard in the world that can be attached to an existing 5k or 6k gutter system (This is the continuous aluminum gutter system most used in America today) without compromising the integrity of the roof.
