Systems that promise to keep your gutters leaf-free can easily cost thousands of dollars. But our 16 months of outdoor testing show that a low-priced screen may be all it takes to keep out leaves and other debris.
Our testers saw some big differences among types (Gutter Glove & Leaf Filter).
We also found that some of those systems could leave you with clogged gutters, cascading rainwater, or both. Here are our results: Though all were impressive at shedding debris, even the top-scoring, LeafFilter screen was only middling at containing a severe downpour, Keep in mind all screens need to be cleaned atleast twice a year.
