How It Compares

How It Compares 

In order to answer one of the frequently asked questions posed by our clients, “How does No Worry Gutters compare to other products on the market?” we've compared No Worry Gutters with those of our competitors. Take a look below at some of the options on the market today, and see for yourself how our No Worry Gutters compare. For a printable version, click the PDF download link below.

The No Worry Gutter system is the best we’ve seen with several features and
benefits that out-perform the competition.

First and foremost, unlike other systems, our No Worry Gutters are not nailed
into your roof - a process that can actually void your roof's warranty!

No Worry Gutters are designed with a specially formed and
perforated hood that creates a molecular bond with the water,
directing it - but not debris - into the gutter.

In addition to its outstanding performance, No Worry Gutters
are attractive! You can mix and match the color of your
gutter top and trough, giving you a seamless, beautiful look.

And best of all, No Worry Gutters cost FAR LESS than other systems!

Mesh or Screen Gutter Covers

These metal coverings fit inside against the back of the gutter and across the top acting like a strainer and filter. This design is easy to install and less expensive than the solid types. However, while they reduce the frequency and difficulty of ongoing gutter cleaning, they do not eliminate it. Unsightly debris together with snow and ice can collect on top of the screen and cause it to collapse. Over time, there is also a chance for the screens to rust and stain face of gutter.

Gutter Filters

Sponge-like foam "space fillers" that let water drain through but keep leaves from building up in the bottom of the trough. These fillers do not have the capacity to handle heavy rain and water flow, and may cause overflow during heavy rain. Snow and ice can also settle into the foam, harboring the potential for ice damming, sagging and overflowing.

Solid Gutter Covers

Made of vinyl or aluminum, these solid gutter covers snap onto the top front of the gutter and slip under your shingles, altering roofline and appearance. They are nailed to your roof which pierces shingles, roof felt and decking, possibly voiding roof warranty or causing leaks. Gutter covers may also blow off in high wind conditions and due to the lack of support, they are very vulnerable to damage from weight of debris, snow, or ice.

Solid Gutter Covers with Slots

Most of the solid cover gutter guards rely on the principle of "water adhesion". The water enters the gutter through slots or small holes located underneath a lip or on the vertical side. These gutters do not keep out all small twigs, dirt, asphalt roofing granules, and pine needles. They perform less well in very heavy rain falls or on steep roofs and may not be considered visually appealing.

Gutter Brushes

Most, but not all, leaves and large debris will pass over gutter brushes. Small items that get caught near the top of the gutter brush either blow away or decompose over time. However, over time, the dirt, small twigs and pine needles that do not pass through the gutter brush may create a layer of 'gunk' in the bottom of the gutter which may cause staining and require periodic gutter cleaning.
