“A commonly asked question about LeavesOut is, “How does it work in a real gully-washer?”Â The answer is, “It works great!”Â The very nature of water is why LeavesOut works so well.Â The bond between the hydrogen atoms and oxygen atom in a water molecule is very strong.Â Even during a real “gully washer” the water follows the LeavesOut curve right into the gutter.
LeavesOut is successfully installed on not only standard aluminum gutters but also on vinyl gutters as well as copper half-round gutters. Standard LeavesOut installs on both standard 5″ gutters as well as on commercial 6″ gutters. LeavesOut is made in any width required by the job — another feature unique to the gutter protection industry.
Because of LeavesOut’s versatility in manufacturing, it has been successfully installed on several types of metal roofs as well as slate, wood shake and concrete tile roofs. Similar products cannot be installed on these roofs.
In fact, most people find that LeavesOut enhances the appearance of the house! Because of its low profile, it is much less visible than similar products. By blending the color with that of the shingle, LeavesOut becomes nearly invisible to the casual observer. Another advantage to having LeavesOut installed is that it is a capital improvement that increases the value of the home while making the gutters maintenance free.
LeavesOut is successfully installed on roofs pitched as steep as 23/12 (nearly vertical) without water coming off during even heavy rains. LeavesOut has been tested with rainfalls at over 12″ of rain an hour without water coming off.
