A: You might be able to bend the part that is supposed to slide under the shingles at 90 degrees and fasten with sheet metal screws to the facia.
A: I was able to lift the last tile on the edge of the roof and simply slide the leading edge of the mesh under it. The weight of the tile secures the mesh, no problem. My only issue is I find in heavy rains the water tends to shed off rather than fall through the micro mesh.
A: Yes, I installed them by lifting up the last courses of tile and sliding the gutter guard under the tiles
A: If there is space between the back of your K gutter and the shingle (heigth) you can bend the gutter so that the back is against the facia and the front is fastened by the tape and screws to the front. The gutter guard will be gently curved but should not interfere with drainage.
A: For a concrete/tile roof you can bend the gutter guard either upward or down and then attach the bent region to the fascia board just below the shingles with the stainless steel screws. You can easily bend the gutter guard by placing a 2x4 board on the gutter guard where you want the bend, then pull the gutter guard up while holding the 2x4 down.
A: Yes, I takes over a week to get in home delivery
A: I under stand what you are saying. I can tell you it is how it is in the picture. Have you look on the site????????
A: I forgot to add a picture. Thin and strong.
A: It would be helpful but not necessary. We learned all about gutter guards (what was needed for the best for drainage of water and not getting clogged) on-line. We found that these gutter guards met all of our requirements to protect our gutters from leaves and clogging up. They were very easy for my husband to install. We purchased them from Home Depot because they had the best price that we could find on-line also.
A: I agree. However, there are several online videos that pretty much tell you all you need to know about this guard.
A: JP, I have comment before. It is either 10 or 20. These will come in 10 in a pack. Mention before. Should go on to the website of Gutter Guard. For as how much. Stop in Home Depot and ask!!! Home Depot will be more than glad to answer any of your question.
A: Ours came in 4 ft lengths
A: I have only found 3 ft and 4 ft section pack.
A: You'll have to check on the Home Depot web site.
A: I don't see 5 ft section on the site. 3 ft or 4 ft. Either way, they all mention pack of 10 or 20.
A: The metal drip edge is on the edge. Then the first row of shingles go on backwards, call the starter row. Then they put the shingles over that with the tabs facing the proper way. The seal is on that first row. You are just sliding it above the metal drip edge and under the first starter row. You will not hurt it. If don't like the idea, then don't install them.
A: You don't break the seal. I inserted my gutter guards in between the roof decking and the shingles. So the tar seal between the shingles is not compromised.
A: I have a typical gable roof with 25 yr fiberglass shingles and 5” gutters. The bottom edge of the shingle isn’t (and shouldn’t) be sealed down to the roof and lifting this edge to slide the Gutter Guard under didn’t cause any damage. The trick is to shape (pre- bend) the GG screen in such a way that it doesn’t raise the shingle by more than necessary. Some raising is inevitable. The instructions, both printed and on-line video, clearly show how to do this. Take the time to do it right and you’ll be happy with the outcome.
A: What roofing material do you have on your roof? You would not "break the seal" on your shingles, if they are composition type.
A: Not crazy about lifting the shingle either.One potential problem is in the winter time as the micro screen are prone to snow and ice build up. The potential for ice dams is high and with that shingle lifted conditions for water infiltration is present. I have seen what looked like a good roof fall prey to an ice dam (just gutters) as the water found its way to a bay window, almost like a waterfall inside the house.
A: You can simply bend the unit up in the back to fit inside the gutter. I couldn't lift metal roof and it worked great.
A: if the installation of 3 tab shingles are properly installed its very easy to slightly lift them and at the same time leaving the felt underlayment in place. Waite until the sun shines on them for about an hour and they are very easy to lift. As to other typs. of shingles I can not give advice, but the instructions that come with the product are very detailed.
A: Hello, When I installed they guards only went up the last shingle on the roof about half way which did not break the seal on the singles. I didn't screw them to the gutters and they stayed in place fine. I don't understand the pitch question as these install so that the water flows threw them as debris runs over the edge of the gutters. They worked great for me.
