Why Klean Gutter
Gutter Guard Comparison
In any gutter guard comparison, look to see if the product has any patents from an inventor other than Alex Higginbotham or Karen Sager on the microfiltration technology. Alex Higginbotham holds 10 patents for microfiltration in gutter guards real game-changing technology. He’s now passed the baton to Karen Sager, who has two patents and several more pending, including the patent on CopperCare™ micromesh, a mesh that addresses a problem with all gutter guards – oils and organisms. Those accomplishments represent more than 15% of advancements since the first patent was issued in the 1880s! No one knows the field like they do. You’re in especially good hands when you use Karen’s latest advancements and improvements, which you’ll find in Klean Gutter.
Expanded Metal Micro Mesh Gutter Guard Comparison
Klean Gutter – The latest expanded metal gutter guard from inventor Alex Higginbotham. He holds four patents on this technology with others pending.
What separates Klean Gutter is its ability to use a fine filter, not a wide open mesh, and still pull water into the gutter. There is a tight central seam in this design used to force water to follow this path rather than continuing its forward flow from the roof straight over the system.
This central seam is Klean Gutter’s strength compared to competing gutter guard systems. Other brands of gutter guard without this seam allow water to flow down to the front of the gutter. Trying to divert all the water at the end of the gutter guard risks overflow and water spilling over the gutter. Klean Gutter’s seam is situated at the back of the gutter, causing water to flow down the back of the gutter, thereby reducing the risk of spills and overflowing.
Klean Gutter is designed to be pitched with the roof so the product does the work to shed debris. This is a key feature of all the latest Higginbotham products. He learned from his past designs that flat systems create a ledge over your gutter which winds up trapping debris.
Klean Gutter also uses the expanded metal in its body differently than his earlier design. Water filters through faster and more effectively than in past embodiments. It also gives Klean Gutter a better way to self clean from roof oils and other debris.
Klean Gutter also has over 70% more filtering area than any other system. You get better performance when you don’t limit the filtering area. While it costs more to do, Alex Higginbotham insists product performance comes first. You’ll find no compromises here.
Homeowners may think they’re paying to getting the bells and whistles of a micro mesh design, but with other systems, they’re not getting any value for their money. Short term performance is not worth the price you’ll have to pay.
Klean Gutter was designed to be the best performing gutter guard to use expanded metal. To find out more about how we do what we do, check out our How it Works page.
