This product ticked so many boxes for us - it was rigid enough that it didn't
collapse into the gutter. It wasn't visable from ground level and was very easy to install. This product is simply laid into the gutter with a dollop of sealant on the inside edge of the gutter.
This foam allowed water to pass through but kept out all but the smallest of particles. Well that is what was supposed to happen.
We had several issues with this product:
- Expensive at over £7.50 ($11.60) per metre excluding installation labour costs
- We could only find one place to buy this product (in the U.K) and that was online
- Moss and leaves did not easily blow off the surface of the foam, instead they compacted and prevented heavy rainfall from entering the gutter
We had to re visit several properties where this product was installed because water was running off the front edge of the gutter - the moss, leaves, twigs etc that
sat on the surface stopped the water from entering the foam and thus the gutter. If the product was sloped (rather than flat) then the debris could fall off and
water might be able to pass freely into the gutter.
