What are the Different Types of Leaf Protection that Alloy Gutter Offers?

At Alloy Gutter we offer 3 different types of leaf protection.  Based on our 39 years of experience we believe these three types of leaf protection are the best options for our customers.  The three types of leaf protection we offer are strainer, shelter, and helmet. Strainer style leaf protection sits in the gutter and has been compared to a spaghetti strainer.  This is the most requested type of leaf protection and for good reason.  It is the most cost effective and lasts for many years.  Strainer is not visible from the curb.  It does not require any maintenance and keeps the leaves, twigs and branches out.  It fits both 5” and 6” K style gutters.   Shelter style leaf protection provides an ultra-low profile that is barely visible from the ground.  It comes in an assortment of colors. You do not need to replace your current gutters.  Leaf Shelter installs over your existing 5" or 6" gutters.  This type of leaf protection can handle the heaviest of rains.   Helmet style leaf protection is guaranteed for life.  It also comes in an assortment of colors. It comes in 4-ft panels that are easy to replace in case one or more is damaged by an external force. Helmet style leaf protection does not affect your roof or its’ warranty because the product screws directly into your gutters.  This leaf protection offers a custom fit to meet your leaf protection needs.
