DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION | METHODS THAT WORK
Design Standard Gutter Guard is a fourth generation product designed and manufactured in Washington State. Through years of development, testing, and proving, this design became one of the most easily installed, functional, and affordable stainless steel gutter guards on the market today.
This process involved the gathering of information from hundreds of customers that have used our earlier products and then allowed us to apply some of those ideas to help make this new product the best on the market. This versatility of this product to work with so many different styles and sizes of gutters and roofs hasn’t been attempted with a stainless steel product. A key feature is the flexible, yet highly durable aluminum body that installs less than a ¼” recessed below the lip of the gutter. This almost invisible, non intrusive design allows it to function in even the hardest of rain storms.
HIGH QUALITY MATERIALS
The base of Standard Gutter Guard is comprised of .019” aluminum supplied from Alsco Metals Corporation and is made of 92.08% recycled aluminum. It is made from the same material as downspouts and has the same manufacturer’s material warranty.
The stainless steel screen is purchased from McNichols Company in Washington State. The steel mesh is comprised of a 304 alloy, square weave, 30 mesh, .012” wire, and with .0213” openings. Essentially, this screen was specifically chosen because the holes are small enough to keep out roof granules, pine needles, and any larger debris from entering the gutters. However, the holes are large enough to allow pollen and bio-organic material to pass through and flush out the gutter system.
