If there was only one type of gutter, and every property had similar trees, leaves and pollen, then we'd only need one kind of gutter guard. However, there are a lot of variables to consider;
Variations in gutter design, hangers and overall condition.
Types of leaves and pine needles.
Volume of leaf and debris loads.
Rain, snow and ice loads.
Roof material, pitch, condition, and overhang.
Location of home in regards to prevalent winds and sun
During my 25 years in the gutter industry, working for other outfits, I've installed virtually every type and brand of gutter protection available. Unfortunately I've found that most of them are ineffective, yet extremely over priced. We only use ones that are proven effective, and reasonably priced.
E-Z-HydroClean High Capacity - a solid gutter protection system with perforations in the surface, is designed to handle the heaviest rain volume. The perforations work hard to channel away excess rainwater on long runs of standard shingles, very steep roofs, and metal roofs. For 5” gutters, E-Z-HydroClean High Capacity gutter guards have 3 rows of perforations, where guards for 6” and 7” gutters have 6 rows to handle even greater volumes.
This effective and simple-to-install aluminum gutter guard has our highest level of engineering to date — with perforations and an arched rear, this recessed cover works with both types of hangers. The arched rear assists debris forward and water downward through the perforated holes. Available in white, mill finish, and black, which allows ice to melt quicker.
This effective and simple-to-install aluminum gutter guard recesses into the gutter and fastens to the front with stainless steel screws (provided). With thousands of holes, the rain water passes through the canals, making it E-Z for air flow to dry the debris and blow it away.
E-Z-HydroClean - a solid gutter protection system, that uses our patented multiple front radius curves for our lowest profile. It just snaps into the gutter with our exclusive positive lock system that uses no fasteners and doesn’t disturb the shingles. This solid guard allows the water to track around the front curve (by surface tension) and into the gutter through slots.
This heavy-duty cover rests on the back of the hidden hanger (even the H-D screw-type hangers) and fastens to the top front edge of the gutter with stainless-steel screws (provided). This guard is elevated in the rear so the product slopes toward the front, and, combined with our exclusive recessed louvers, assists debris to sweep over the front.

The original E-Z Gutter Screen is still one of the most versatile, but with a tighter mesh to trap finer debris. Made of powder-coated steel.
It can be snapped into the front of the gutter for quick and easy removal without disturbing the shingles.
The original E-Z Gutter Screen is still one of the most versatile. Made of powder-coated steel, with two different methods of installation.
It can be snapped into the front of the gutter for quick and easy removal, without disturbing the shingles, or fastened with screws to the front of the gutter and installed under the shingles.
This micro-mesh powder-coated aluminum screen is great for extreme environments and coastal applications that can cause some competitive products to corrode, and keeps out even the smallest debris.
Designed with three 90º “steps” at the front for greater strength, this guard snaps into gutter hem, helping to force water to track into the gutter, while reducing the effects of water-streaks and tiger-striping across the gutter.
This design works for every gutter installation, with spring tension that holds it in place, while closing the void under the shingles so
debris can’t collect there. It is one of the few guard systems available today that snaps in and out for easy cleaning. The steel is 0.28 gauge – to stand tough under a full load of wet leaves without collapsing – and installs with a slope toward the front to help debris slide off.
Spring tension design holds this gutter screen in place. Snaps in and out of half round gutters for easy cleaning. 0.28 gauge steel stands tough under a full load of wet leaves without collapsing. Installs with a slope toward the front to help debris slide off.
This heavy-duty louvered cover is the only one that locks into 6″ half round gutter with hidden hangers. With the special front 90 degree bends, these panels install with spring tension.
This micro-mesh powder-coated aluminum screen is great for extreme environments and keeps out even the smallest debris. This guard locks into half round gutter, forcing water to track into the gutter. The angled back edge holds tight by locking into hidden gutter hangers.
