Made from aluminum, our guard will not rust or deteriorate. We have it powder-coated black. This coating is the same process auto makers use to paint the metal on their windshield wipers. Formed to fit, it blends with the roof line to add beauty to your home.
Why not match the color of the gutter to help the guard blend in??
We get asked this question all the time, and the answer is very simple. Standing on the ground looking up at the gutter system, the area that your eye catches between the shingle edge and the gutter is shadowed, or dark. Installing a black guard allows the guard to blend in with this area, so you don’t notice the guard nearly as much as one that is silver, white, or any other lighter color.
Like the Leaf Beater system, the Black Magic gutter protection system works using a two step process which helps eliminate cleanings, letting you enjoy more free time.
First step: take care of the large debris; leaves, sticks, twigs, and acorns. Our installers slip the back of the guard under the shingle, locking the front stiffener bar to the lip of the gutter, then securing with stainless steel screws to prevent removal by winds or animals.
Second step: take care of smaller materials that wash through the screen. When the rain quits, water flows out of the gutter leaving behind the heavier debris. These materials dry out, mat together and flow to the downspout, plugging the outlet causing the gutter to overflow. Installing 3×4 inch downspouts, which have an opening twice the size of regular downspouts, allows the small debris to be washed out. No clogging – EVER!
