What Is Gutter Rudder?


Gutter Rudder sets the Standard for Top Quality Gutter Protection. Gutter Rudder is an all metal system that installs to bring existing gutters and roofs together creating a maintanience free solution to clogged gutters. Gutter Rudder keeps leaves, pine needles, fire embers, snow and other debris from entering gutters. With the Gutter Rudder system your home is protected from the elements, nature and fire danger for decades. With Gutter Rudder you never have to clean your gutters reducing risks of climbing ladders forever! That's why we say "Gutter Rudder and Forget It!"


How Does Gutter Rudder Work?

Gutter Rudder's secret is the principle of surface tension. Hold a glass under a running faucet and you can see surface tension at work. The water flows around the outside of the glass. Similarly, water clings to your Gutter Rudder as it flows off the roof into your gutters. Gravity separates pine needles, leaves, and other debris falling to the ground below. Your gutters stay open and clear effortlessly, with no work on your part! Gutter Rudder and Forget It!


Why is Gutter Rudder Better?


Gutter Rudder is designed to extend roof past the gutters edge so leaves and debris cannot enter gutter channels. Gutter Rudder compliments a roofs pitch keeping leaves and other debris from collecting on gutter tops. Water adheres to the metal surface curvature acting like a magnet using Surface Tension Principals effortlessly dripping inside. No other Gutter Roof System brings water as far inside gutter channels so effectively. 


Gutter Rudder is made from solid metal alloy that will not rust, decay or deteriorate for decades. Quality metal alloy hardware ensures solid attachment to your home that will hold up in the heaviest weight demands.


Gutter Rudder puts a stylish finish on your home roof line adding curb appeal no other gutter system can match. Gutter Rudder is built to last setting the standard for top quality maintenance free gutter systems.

Compare Gutter Rudder To Other Systems


Gutter products, like screens or grates are cheap and ineffective. Screens may block large leaves but still allow small debris and dirt to enter eventually clogging your gutters. Most screens and grates are plastic, some are metal. They never fit properly, and do not last. Plus you still have to climb ladders and clean them again and again. In short, screens and grates are a waste of time and money.
Single piece designs are similar to Gutter Rudder in design but have several major design flaws. The differences are:
*  One piece design cover means you cannot open and service your gutters if required. Whatever gets in is there to stay. Gutter Rudder is a two piece system easily be removed to service gutters if required
*  One piece design covers generally use plastic hardware and brackets. Plastic gets brittle over time and can break with excess weight. Gutter Rudder is ALL METAL CONSTRUCTION.  NO PLASTIC!
*  One piece design covers cannot be customized to follow roof pitch and work effectively to remove debris and fire embers. One piece systems are machine formed with little to no pitch on top allowing debris to accumulate. Gutter Rudder's unique design is custom fitted to follow roof pitch ensuring a continuous flow of debris and embers off roof tops . 
*  Gutter Rudder is engineered to work despite the degree of pitch. Water will easily flow into your gutters, while leaves and debris stay out!.
*  One piece design only comes in one Color. Gutter Rudde can be colored differently than the gutter creating a more refined look. Gutter Rudder and Forget It!

How Does Gutter Rudder Help Prevent Roof Fires?

Many homes have burned to the ground just being downwind from an area wildfire. Glowing embers can burst upwards traveling long distances. Some eventually land on roof tops. Gutters filled with leaves and easily quickly ignite eventually consuming the entire structure. Gutter Rudder keeps burning embers out of gutters reducing the chance of roof fire signifigantly. Some states like California require homeowners to cover gutters and help reduce fire threat. Gutter Rudder's solid metal panels do not allow leaves and debris to enter gutters.
