What is the most effective gutter protection for a 12/12 pitch roof? Assuming the gutters are sized properly, will a fine mesh filter allow water to enter the gutter or will the water flow over the filter/gutter? Do any "covered" (non-mesh type filter/screen) gutter guards work with this pitch roof?
Given that all our gutters need to be replaced, the incremental cost of almost all protection systems we have been offered would pay for themselves immediately given they give no clog/cleaning guarranties. However, we are not convinced the water will enter the gutter system and therefore are concerned the guarranty would be meaningless. In other words, we would be spending money on a guard system that created a waterfall over the gutter sysem not through it. The feared result would be no clogging to exercise the guarantees, but also that the water would not be properly drained away from the house.
Would be most appreciative of gutter experise. Thanks!
