About 99% of the time the small roof sand grit will not clog the mesh. You can have challenges with inside miters (inside gutter corners) where there is high accumulation of small debris and rainwater that congregate at the bottom of the roof valley. These areas will need to be brushed off from time to time. In the straight runs of gutter, generally speaking, when the rain drops come down, they splash the roof sand grit off. There will always be a little grit there in that front trough, but it cycles off the mesh, over the gutter and onto the ground and is replaced by other grit coming down the roof.

It’s important to note that icicles can form on ANY gutter guard, including the possibility of ice dams.

CAUTION: ICICLES & ICE DAMS can form on your gutter during freezing conditions. Icicles can break and cause serious bodily harm. Properly installed, operated and maintained heating elements on your roof and gutter can melt icicles and ice dams. Use a licensed electrical contractor in good standing for installing any heating element products.

You should never have any problems as long as you have a good understanding of how our product works, which may include some periodic tender love and care. Please understand, of all the gutter guards in the industry, and Robert has been in the guttering industry since 1996, his gutter guard products requires the least amount of maintenance than any other gutter guard in the industry.

A great way to clean off your gutter guard (or any gutter guard for that matter), is with the use of The Gutter Guard Brush. It’s designed to clean off any gutter guard without having to get on a ladder or roof. You just screw this special brush on the end of any standard extension pole, then from the ground, just reach up and brush it off. For more information and where to buy, visit www.TheGutterGuardBrush.com.

We use a 30mesh (that is 30×30 holes/square inch) which is more effective than smaller hole sizes at keeping out pollen. The 30mesh that we use is the perfect size for managing rainwater into the gutter while keeping out all the leaves, pine needles, and even the roof grit. If pollen ever did clog an area of the micro-mesh, you can unclog it with a gutter cleaning brush like ours found here.

Moss will grow on anything, except copper and zinc for the most part, so the answer is yes. Moss can grow on any gutter guard and roof. There are several types and brands of moss fungicide products available at nursery and hardware stores.

Though we are sharing some information on moss control products, we do not endorse or guarantee the performance of any of them. Here are a few links that provide some possible solutions:

A good way to determine if moss is going to grow on your gutter guard is if moss is already growing on your roof, then it is possible that it will grow on the mesh as well. There are a couple gutter guards that use mesh on the market that claim their ‘mesh’ doesn’t allow moss to grow on it, and that’s not true. Unless the mesh is made of copper, or maybe has some type of zinc coating on it, then maybe it won’t allow moss to grow on it.

Yes. However, sometimes inside miters at the end of a roof valley can cause challenges for any gutter guard, causing rainwater to run over in a downpour. If that’s the case, you may want to install a perforated rainwater diverter along the edge of the roof on the inside miter. This will help break up and dissipate the rainwater over a wider area rather than at one point. Our rainwater diverter is made out of an aluminum material, perforated with small round holes and attaches to the end of your roof valley just above the stainless steel micro-mesh.

Rainwater diverters can be purchased at www.RainwaterDiverters.com.

However, the diverter will collect debris behind it, so at some point you would need to clean that out. You may be able to reach the brush up there and scrape some of it off. Cleaning behind the diverter is very infrequent. The diverter will significantly reduce the amount of brushing needed on the mesh.
