Lean Gutters

Clyde Libolt submitted this diagram showing how he fixed what bugged him.

Clyde states, “We have a tree that clogs my gutters. I end up on the roof two or three times a year (usually in the rain) cleaning them out so they work properly. IT BUGGED ME!!! I have about 200 ft of gutters so some the commercial products were not viable. I bought some wire cloth (screen) and I built a homemade bender and made my own U-shaped screen that snaps into my gutters. Ben helped me with the fabrication and was a great help placing them in the gutter as well. This innovation cost us 50 cents a lineal foot!”
