Gutter protection systems stop leaves (and other debris) entering spouting/gutters.
Preventing leaves from entering the gutter ensures that rain water is able to escape along the gutter and down the drainpipe exactly as intended.
Problems arise when the leaves are stopped but not able to exit from the gutters.
This can result in the spouting becoming blocked and the water finding a way round, over or through – sometimes with drastic and expensive results.
GutterFoam works differently in that it stops the leaves entering the spouting but does not stop the leaves from contimuing on their way and falling off the roof. See image below.
The very elements, wind and rain, that cause the problems we solve are also responsible for making GutterFoam work so effectively. Our product is ideal for New Zealand’s continously changing and harsh conditions.
