I’m a big fan of these inexpensive downspout screens. Simply put, they work.
If you’ve ever priced gutter guards, gutter caps or whatever they might be called, I’m sure you were shocked at the cost. I have seen many gutters that have had gutter guards on them and they were full of debris. Getting that debris out is a pain.
With these downspout screens the gutters drain as they should. Yep, the gutters still need to be cleaned but that’s not a bad thing. Getting up and cleaning the gutters also is a great time to inspect the roof and make sure the gutter is still attached properly. Some things are just not meant to set it and forget it.
