Q: What happens when leaves and debris clog the eavestrough / gutter?
 
A: The Golden GuardTM is the most efficient leaf guard on the market. Without a leaf guard, leaves and debris clog the eavestrough / gutter and prevent water from emptying. When it rains, the water seeps into the residence since it cannot evacuate normally. With the Golden GuardTM, eavestrough / gutter does not get clogged. When it rains, water evacuates normally; no water infiltration.

Q: What happens when snow and ice clog the eavestrough / gutter?
 
A: The Golden GuardTM allows water to drain normally all year round. An eavestrough / gutter filled with snow and ice is not functional in the winter. When it rains or temperatures rise, the water seeps into the residence since it cannot drain normally. With the Golden GuardTM, snow and ice remain on top of the product, leaving the eavestrough / gutter functional. When it rains or temperatures rise, water drains normally.

Q: Will the Golden GuardTM support heavy rainfalls without overflowing?
 
A: Yes, the Golden GuardTM can drain almost 3 times the highest rainfall ever recorded. See independent tests.
Q: What happen when debris sit on top of the Golden GuardTM?
 
A: Most debris are blown away by a gentle breeze. Wet leaves will dry up quickly and disperse by themselves. See independent tests.
Q: How the Golden GuardTM protects against damage caused by snow and ice?
 
A: First, the Golden GuardTM helps to withstand evenly the weight of snow and ice. Also, since ice sits on top of the Golden GuardTM, there is no risk of warping caused by the expansion of ice freezing and melting inside the eavestrough / gutter.
Q: On what types of eavestroughs / gutters can the Golden GuardTM be installed?
 
A: On standard 5'' eavestroughs / gutters. In North America, most homes have that type of eavestroughs / gutters installed. The opening should be no greater than 4 ''. Contact us if a different type of eavestroughs / gutters is installed on your home.
Q: What kind of hangers can the Golden GuardTM be installed over?
 
A: Golden GuardTM can be installed over any flat hanging system, including spikes and ferrules. If any part of your existing hangers protrudes above the top of the eavestrough / gutter, Golden GuardTM will not work. Contact us to know which specific product you should use in that case.
Q: Does the Golden GuardTM come in several colors?
 
A: No, the Golden GuardTM is not visible from the ground and therefore, does not need to be painted.
Q: Will the Golden GuardTM prevent icicles from forming?
 
A: Golden GuardTM will not cause or prevent icicles from forming on top of the eavestrough / gutter. If the attic space is not properly insulated icicles may form. In fact, Golden GuardTM prevents warping caused by the expansion of ice freezing and melting inside the eavestrough / gutter.
Q: How Golden GuardTM compares to other leaf guards available?
 
A: First, cheaper products will need to be moved back into place several times a year. The Golden GuardTM is made of sturdy aluminum and is screwed to the front to make sure it will remain in place season after season.

Also, other products have larger openings that may allow for a significant amount of debris to enter the eavestrough / gutter. The debris can also become trapped. The small holes on the Golden GuardTM will drain efficiently any rainfalls without overflowing. See independent tests.
