Helps Snow and Ice Melt In The Gutter!
In addition to leaf gutter guards, LeafBlox has also been call the “winter gutter guard”. This means that it can actually serving as a dual-purpose gutter product! When the black bristles stick up, they attract the sun and help melt the snow and ice in the gutters while keeping leaves and debris out. LeafBlox are fully compatible with a proper functioning heat wire and tapes as well.
Competing metal gutter guards can be a thermal conductor that allows air to flow underneath. The metal covers can be the first thing to freeze when it is raining or wet and can lead to ice buildup on top of the gutter guards. This buildup can cause water to dam up under the shingles and cause roof leaks. LeafBlox is plastic and sits down in the gutter without having contact with the roof so this is not likely to happen.
