  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • Before describing the disclosed embodiments of this technology in detail, it is to be understood that the technology is not limited in its application to the details of the particular arrangement shown here since the technology described is capable of other embodiments. Also, the terminology used herein is for the purpose of description and not of limitation.
  • In various exemplary embodiments, the technology described herein provides a gutter protection system 10 configured to provide zero clogging of leafs, debris, and the like. The gutter protection system 10 utilizes no underlying structural support system. The gutter protection system 10 utilizes no edges or areas in which debris can snag or restrict debris movement across its surface. There are no raised edges that will catch debris moving in the direction of the flow of water.
  • Referring now to the Figures, a gutter protector 10 configured for zero clogging is shown. The gutter protector 10 is configured to be secured on top of a rain gutter or above the gutter fastened to the fascia board, rafter tail, or the like, of a building. The gutter protector 10 is configured to work with a K-style, Ogee, or conventional gutters as an add-on or retrofit solution. The gutter protector 10 also is configured to be prefabricated and/or preassembled with a gutter at a point of manufacture for later installation as a complete gutter system. The gutter protector 10 is configured to operate without an underlying support structure. The gutter protector 10 is configured with no raised edge on an upper surface of the gutter protector 10 thereby having no impediment to the flow of debris and water that would create clogs.
  • A rain gutter typically has a rear wall 22, front wall 18, and a base, or trough 24. Additionally the front wall 18 can further include upper lip 26 and flange 32. Depending on the gutter, the upper lip 26 can be flat or rounded. As is well known in the art, the various components used to create the underlying gutter can vary. However, the gutter protector 10 disclosed herein is configured to protect gutters in many variations from debris entering, yet allow water to enter.
  • As depicted in FIG. 2, the gutter protector 10 typically is installed on a building up against a fascia board 30. The shingles 20 on the building overhang the gutter and gutter protector 10 enough to ensure that no debris and/or water flow backwardly toward the building or into the building.
  • The gutter protector 10 includes an upper fastener 12. The upper fastener 12 is configured to secure the gutter protector 10 above a rear wall 22 of the rain gutter to the fascia board 30. Various embodiments of the upper fastener 12 are included in FIGS. 4A, 4B, 4C, 4D, 4E, 4F, and 4G.
  • In at least one embodiment, the upper fastener 12 is aluminum. In at least one embodiment, the upper fastener 12 is polyvinyl chloride (PVC).
  • The gutter protector 10 includes a lower fastener 16. The lower fastener 16 is configured to secure the gutter protector 10 to a top of a front wall 18 of the rain gutter. Various embodiments of the lower fastener 16 are included in FIGS. 3A, 3B, and 3C.
  • In at least one embodiment, the lower fastener 16 is aluminum. In at least one embodiment, the lower fastener 16 is polyvinyl chloride (PVC).
  • The gutter protector 10 includes a non-rigid permeable member 14. The non-rigid permeable member 14 is extended tautly and smoothly, once installed, between the upper fastener 12 and the lower fastener 16. The non-rigid permeable member 14, in various embodiments, includes fabric, mesh, screen, and micro stainless steel fabric. The non-rigid permeable member 14, in various embodiments, is metal. The non-rigid permeable member 14, in various embodiments, is plastic. The non-rigid permeable member 14, in various embodiments, is fabric.
  • The gutter protector 10 configured with a plurality of openings to permit the passage of water while substantially shedding organic debris, debris, and solid material. See for example, mesh 15 close-up of the permeable member in FIG. 1. Visually the gutter protector 10 may appear to be a solid surface, but the gutter protector 10 includes openings such that the gutter protector 10 is permeable. By way of example, the gutter protector 10 is a micro stainless steel mesh in one embodiment. Also by way of example, one embodiment includes a weave pattern of a certain number of longitudinal cross pieces for a certain number of latitudinal cross pieces. Weave patterns can be selected and used in alternative embodiments dependent on user selection and need in a particular installation.
  • In an effort to prevent oil leaching off of asphalt shingles and building up on the gutter protector 10, a weave pattern is selected to be small enough to disallow particles from entering the gutter, yet large enough to prevent the buildup of oils and residues on the gutter protector 10. This facilitates fast moving water through the permeable surface.
  • The gutter protector 10 weave pattern can also factor in the flushing vortex concept. Such vortexes actually serve to “pull” or “suck” inwardly through the gutter protector 10 and into the gutter. This provides a self-cleaning effect and further prevents buildup and/or residue on the gutter protector 10. The weave can be varied to increase or decrease the vortex flushing effect.
  • The gutter protector 10 has an “A” side and a “B” side in at least one embodiment. The gutter protector 10 in this embodiment allows better permeation of water in one direction, such as A-to-B, but not the other, B-to-A.
  • The gutter protector 10 includes a riser, such as 40 in 4A, 46 in 4B, and so forth, integrally formed with the upper fastener 12. The riser is configured to provide a downward slope across the permeable member 14 from the upper fastener 12 to the lower fastener 16 to shed organic debris and solid material from the rain gutter yet allow water to pass through the permeable member 14 into the gutter.
  • In at least one embodiment gutter protector 10 includes a flange 34 in FIG. 3A, 35 if FIG. 3B, 41 if FIG. 3C. The flange 34, 35, 41 is integrally formed with the lower fastener 16. The flange 34, 35 is configured to provide a drip edge angled outwardly and away from an outside edge of the front wall 18 of the gutter. As such, the flange 34, 35, 41 is configured to prevent dirty streaks, or “tiger striping” on rain gutters. Tiger stripes are the result of debris, pollutants, on the like, continuously rolling over the lip of the gutter and streaming down the face of the gutter. Use of flange 34, 35, 41 minimizes this streaking, or tiger striping from occurring.
  • The gutter protector further can include a supplemental rear fastener clip 66, 76, 86. The supplemental rear fastener clip 66, 76, 86 is configured to provide support for various installation circumstances to the upper fastener 12 as it is attached to or above the rear wall 22 of the rain gutter. By way of example, an installation may be on a building having only rafter tails onto which the additional fastener clip 66, 76, 86 is utilized. In various embodiments, the supplemental rear fastener clip 66, 76, 86 is depicted specifically in FIGS. 10, 11, and 12 respectively.
  • In reference to FIG. 10, a supplemental rear fastener clip 66 is shown. Base 68 includes aperture 70, through which a screw, or the like, can secure the supplemental rear fastener clip 66 to or above the rear wall 22 of the rain gutter. The supplemental rear fastener clip 66 is crimped or bent at point 72 to transition into upper plate 74.

  • The gutter protection system further can include a cable clip configured to hold a heat cable within the gutter and below the gutter protector.
  • In at least two embodiments, in use the gutter protection system can be installed directly and indirectly, such as with supplemental clips and fasteners.
  • For direct attachment, the gutter protection system 10 can be installed as follows:
      • Starting at an end of the pre-existing, pre-installed gutter without a corner, take a four foot length, for example, gutter protector 10 and position the upper fastener 12 directly on the top edge of the gutter (at the top of 22). Insure that the edge (left edge if starting from the left end of a gutter) is in line with the end of the gutter. Fasten this piece with a self-tapping screw, for example, in the center of the fastener 12 into the fascia board 30 while making sure the entire bottom edge of the gutter protector 10 upper fastener 12 is in line with the top rear edge (top of 22) of the gutter. Fasten on the right and the left approximately two inches from the ends of the gutter protector 10. Add additional screws between the center screw and ends screws, so that there are five fastening points, for example only, in total on this section of the gutter protector.
      • Pull the gutter protector 10 forward to tighten the non-rigid permeable member 14, while making sure that edge of the gutter protector 10 is in line with the end of the gutter, and fasten about six inches from the end through the lower fastener 16 into the gutter at the upper portion of front wall 18. Fasten again at the center and other end of this length of the gutter protector.
      • Repeat the process above after first butting the next four foot length of gutter protector 10 tightly against the previous section.
  • For indirect attachment, such as for example, when there is no fascia board and rafter tails are used as mount points, the gutter protection system 10 can be installed, for example, utilizing supplemental rear fastener clips, one or more of 66, 76, 86, or a channel in similar form. Each of the supplemental rear fastener clips, one or more of 66, 76, 86, are mounted above the top edge of the rear gutter wall 22. The upper fastener 12 can be placed just behind upper plate 74 in 66, or just behind upper plate 84 in 76, or just behind 90 in 86.
  • As the gutter protection system is installed on an existing gutter, supplemental end caps can be created on the job by an installation technician. The supplemental end caps are configured to close the open, generally pie-shaped areas created as the gutter protector 10 is placed above a gutter and above the existing end caps. The supplemental end caps are configured to prevent debris and critters from entering the gutter.
  • Additionally, as the gutter protection system is installed on an existing gutter, special consideration and installation steps are taken at the inside and outside corners. Particularly on an inside corner, an area receiving a much higher quantity of runoff from the roof valley, the gutter protector 10 placement is made to be precise. In this inside corner, two adjoining section of gutter protector 10 are cut at 45 degree angles to be securely coupled and butted together. Although the quantity of water runoff is likely less at an outside corner, the installation practice is similar to that of an inside corner. Two adjoining section of gutter protector 10 are cut at 45 degree angles to be securely coupled and butted together. One installation method for either of both of the inside or outside corners is to use a large weave or mesh for the gutter protector 10 in that area to accommodate the higher capacity of water flow, and help prevent overshoot or overflow of water.
  • Additionally, as the gutter protection system is installed on an existing gutter, special consideration and installation steps are taken in areas where an upper downspout, such as from the roof of an upper story, drains to a lower roof into another gutter. This area of gutter on the lower roof is accommodating a higher capacity of water since it is receiving water from at least two roof sections. As such, an area where an upper downspout feeds to a lower gutter, the gutter protector 10 in that section can be a larger weave or mesh for the gutter protector 10 in that area to accommodate the higher capacity of water flow, and help prevent overshoot or overflow of water.
  • Although this technology has been illustrated and described herein with reference to preferred embodiments and specific examples thereof, it will be readily apparent to those of ordinary skill in the art that other embodiments and examples can perform similar functions and/or achieve like results. All such equivalent embodiments and examples are within the spirit and scope of the invention and are intended to be covered by the following claims.
