They are easy to cut. They are made up of metal or plastic, so are way too inexpensive than other gutter guards. They can be wedged anywhere in to the place between gutter and fascia, no screwing or sticking is required.
Cost- Less than 2 dollars
- They are easily available all around the country.
- They can work with all type of roof types- slate, wood, tile, steel and others.
- May keep larger leaves away for some time.
- They allow the needles and seeds to pass through them because of wide screens.
- They allow the leaves to pile up leading to clogging once again.
