Half round gutters are a common option for collecting and redirecting water to downspouts. They work to prevent water damage to the outer walls and basement of your house.
All gutters have the same issue of leaves and other tree born debris clogging the gutters. If you live in an area that has many trees, cleaning the gutters become a necessary and repetitive chore. Gutter guards can alleviate the need for cleaning and can improve the efficiency of your gutters.
1. Gutter Screen
A commonly used type of gutter guard for half round gutters is a gutter screen. Screens come in 3 foot sections that are clamped onto the front bead of the gutter with clips.
The screen simply rests over the gutter and roof, keeping debris away from the gutter. The hinges open the screen for easy cleaning. The hinges come in a variety of metallic finishes to match the look of your home.
2. Gutter Filter
Gutter filters will fit inside 5 inch or 6 inch half round gutters. They form a tight seal preventing any collection of debris in the gutters. They come in 4 foot sections and are installed over and under the existing gutter hangers.
