How Gutters Clog & What We Do to Prevent Clogging
Rain gutters can clog in several areas. The most common areas for clogged gutters are;
Gutter funnels (birdies)
And clogged gutter drains
The Gutter Grate™ system was designed to protect your gutters from falling leaves and debris. For clog free gutters it is also necessary to ensure that your drainage system is adequate enough to handle excessive water flow.
The Gutter Doc works with the same principle used by plumbers; for efficient drainage water must flow from smaller drainage into larger drainage in order to flush through properly.
Clogged Gutter Corners – these are eliminated by replacing the narrow right angle gutter corners with larger triangle shaped corners that improve water flow.
Clogged Gutter Funnels – this problem is addressed by replacing the small 2 or 3 inch round birdie with a large 2×6 inch V-shaped funnel for faster and more efficient water drainage
Clogged Gutter Drains – this problem is eliminated by replacing inadequate gutter downspouts with larger 2x3inch drainage pipes. In this way, any debris that is not filtered out by the Gutter Grate™ will be flushed down the drainage pipe and captured in the Downspout Catch Basin. (NOTE: Downspout catch basins are installed just a few feet off the ground as part of the drainage downspout; this allows homeowners to clean residual debris from the safety of the ground on an “as needed” basis.)
Gutter Doc’s Gutter Grate™ system is designed to work with 8 different rain gutter profiles.
