When a homeowner selects an Englert MicroGuard gutter system, they virtually eliminate one of the most tedious, time-consuming and possibly dangerous tasks they could undertake – cleaning their gutters.
Gutters are a key component of the home drainage system, filtering water and debris away from the roof where, left unchecked, it could damage the roofing material and the roof sections themselves. In addition, a gutter’s downspout helps direct water away from the house instead of letting it pool at the foundation, possibly wearing away the lower section of the walls of the home & the ground surrounding it.
The Englert MicroGuard gutter screen system is the next step in home drainage technology, offering a system of protection that not only can reduced the amount of maintenance that a gutter system normally requires, but also can save a homeowner from having to pay for expensive gutter cleaning services or the possible repair work from a damaged gutter.
The MicroGuard system features micro-filtration protection that consists of a gutter guard with thousands of tiny holes that block large debris (twigs, pine needles, etc.) from collecting in the gutter while permitting water to freely flow through. The small perforations also make it possible to simply hose off debris that does collect on the top of the filter, instead of requiring the homeowner to dig out clubs of collected debris.
