How does the Englert LeafGuard® gutter work?
Liquid Adhesion is the scientific principle behind Englert LeafGuard Brand's gutters unique design. Molecular attraction causes water molecules to adhere to the surface they rest on, in this case, the LeafGuard hood. Rainwater clings to the hood and falls into the gutter trough. The narrow opening between the hood and gutter deters debris from entering the gutter, easily deflecting it. It's that simple!

The LeafGuard Brand one-piece gutter system attaches to your fascia board, not under your shingles, thus never voiding your roof warranty.
