Gutter Cap vs Leaf Filters

At Royal Contractors North Florida, we know that the choice between Gutter Cap and Leaf Filters for your gutters can be challenging. We’re here to give you an in-depth comparison to make the process simpler.

Understanding the Basics: Gutter Cap and Leaf Filters

The most critical step in making the right choice for your gutters starts with understanding the products in question.

What is a Gutter Cap?

Gutter Caps are designed to prevent debris from entering your gutter system. These are made of aluminum alloy and placed over your aluminum gutters. The design of the Gutter Cap allows water to flow into your gutters while keeping leaves and debris out.

Gutter Cap is installed at the pitch of your roof. This means the debris will fall off and fall onto the ground. With a lifetime warranty, Gutter Caps are perfect for the extreme heat and sun we have in North Florida.

What are Leaf Filters?

Leaf Filters are mirco mesh screens placed on top of the gutters. Leaf Filters sit flat on top of the gutter, which can cause issues when not taken care of. Leaf Filters are micro mesh, which can lead to problems due to the hot sun in North Florida.

Gutter Cap

When considering Gutter Caps, there are several advantages to keep in mind:

  • Retro installation on existing aluminum gutters
  • Durable and long-lasting, because it’s made from aluminum alloy with a lifetime warranty
  • Keeps debris out of the gutter
  • Maintains the aesthetic appeal of your home
  • Great in the sun
  • Granulated finish that blends in with your roof

Leaf Filters

Here is an overview of Leaf filters:

  • Sit flat and the debris can pile up on top of the mesh. You will need to wash it down to keep it clean.
  • Maintenance is required to keep them clean and flowing
  • Does not last in the Florida sun
