Though here at Chase Construction North West Inc., we specialize in roofing, there is much more to this sector than just shingles. We are entering the fall months and with this transition, comes the necessity for regular gutter cleaning. Without this process, leaves and debris can accumulate inside the gutter and prevent water from exiting your roof structure. This added weight could eventually lead to damage to your gutters, roof, trim, and siding. To avoid this hassle, there exists gutter guards, a system that promises to keep your gutters leaf-free. Until recently, these systems could easily cost thousands of dollars, but U.S. manufacturer Gutterglove Inc. has made strides to change this.
A Great Innovation in the Gutter World
The company recently announced that it has received a broad patent for its proprietary V-Bend technology, which allows its’ stainless steel micro mesh gutter guards to be suspended over a gutter without the need of a metal support. With this technology, the gutter guards can be manufactured at a significantly lower cost than competitors offer and the door for global distribution opens. Other such stainless steel micro mesh gutter guards are not mainstream or popular in the industry solely because of the high cost of manufacturing, which was the motivator for CEO and inventor of Gutterglove’s glove covers, Robert Lenney, in this venture. The way this new technology works is analogous to the corrugations in metal roofing materials that give them strength to span roof rafters. In this system, corrugations are put in the stainless steel mesh so they can span gutters without the need for high-cost metal supports. Gutterglove’s innovative solution employs the same tactics. The company’s cutting edge gutter guards have already sprouted in the marketplace and are available at several ABC Supply roofing supply stores in the U.S. CEO, Lenney, hopes for them to be distributed throughout the
entire chain by the end of the summer. Gutterglove is doing its’ part to stimulate the economy by transitioning manufacturing from China to the US over the last few years. All of Gutterglove’s protection systems offer high-performance as they keep leaves, pine needles and tiny roof sand grit out of a rain gutter.
