Pitching a gutter cover so it sheds debris on its own. That just makes sense because no one wants to buy a brush and constantly brush their gutter cover clean. But gutter covers get dirty from something else-the oils that leach from roof shingles. Alex Higginbotham was the first inventor to identify roof oils as a leading cause of gutter cover failure. He also invented the first self-cleaning gutter cover in 2003. His technology cleanses his microfilter of the roof oils that tend to clog other systems. It’s an amazing technology.
Pitching a gutter cover helps it self-clean from oils
Recently, we had a question from a homeowner, who wondered why Alex says that pitching a gutter cover with a microfilter with the roof, rather than letting it sit flat, is important in helping it to self-clean. This homeowner, who had done her research, understood that pitching a gutter cover with the roof helped shed debris, but it’s impact on cleaning was a mystery to her. In this video, Alex explains why that is.
