Gutter Guard Direct
This is simply where the mesh or screen is put directly over the gutter. It can be secured on the gutter using screws that can later be removed when cleaning the gutter of smaller pieces of debris left in it, or be placed inside the gutter itself. The advantages of a gutter guard direct are;
It is secured against strong winds. Certain parts of Australia, especially in the dry arid areas, face a lot of strong winds during the year. Of course with strong winds, you expect a lot of leaves. So if your home is in such areas, you will have solved two issues with one solution; the leaves are kept away from the gutters and the guard stays secure on the gutter.
Gutter guard direct installation means no damage to the roof shingles. A lot of home owners fear that if they install a mesh over the gutter that stretches over the roof shingles and is secured on them, would mean punching holes on the roof shingles. In the process of solving the blockage problem, it may create another problem of leaking roofs. They have a valid point, and that is why it is good to have the job done professionally. Besides, if fitted directly it makes it easier when doing repair work. In other words, the gutter and roof shingles can be replaced or worked on separately.
There are some types of gutter guards that can be installed inside the gutter, without having to secure them on the gutter itself. They still perform the same function of filtering, and once they are clogged up, they can be removed and cleaned. This sounds like the same kind of hustle you would face, going up on the roof of your house and cleaning the gutter yourself. The reason why the direct guard works fine, in this case, is because it saves you the trouble of doing this dangerous task.
