Polypropolene construction makes it compatible with all of
the different metals with no concern for the electrolysis that happens
when different types of metal come in contact with each other. RainDrop
is suitable for copper, aluminum, zinc, galvalume, and galvanized gutter
- Installs on flat or steep sloped roofs.
- One size fits 5" or 6", new and existing gutters.

Raindrop Gutter Guard
Scientifically Engineered - The uniquely patented design boasts (23) precise details, which combine to beautifully orchestrate one of the highest overall performing gutter guard products to date.
The grids vertical bar layout along with the bars rounded tops allows gravity and water surface adhesion to redirect water off to the side openings. This allows performance to be unaffected in any rainfall amount, from a light spring rain to a heavy downpour. Vertical bar layout prevents heavy rain amounts from "sheeting" or bypassing beyond the gutters outer edge.
The bars undersides are tapered, continuing to work with the waters surface adhesion, and creating a capillary action which naturally causes the rain water to be suctioned through the guard. Ingeniously adding to Raindrop Gutter Guard's water capacity capabilities.
The openings are precisely spaced to create water surface tension between the bars. This is a key element which deters the smaller leafs, pine needles & seedlings from entering the gutter...in the same manner a dropped leaf hits the water surface tension on a lake.
Raindrop Gutter Guard's inherent grid layout takes care of the larger leafs & debris while the micro bar design utilizes the natural characteristics of water to handle the smaller leafs & debris. Miter Strips. . . Provide a Smooth Transition at the gutter corners along with a smooth and very appealing end appearance.
Miter Strips are for outside corners only.
* Approx. 8 inches in length
* Tapered on one end to match gutter edge.
* "H" shape allows for guard insert on both sides.
* Allows for 1/2" variance in the angle or cutting of the guard for installation time savings.
* Trim Miter Strip to length at the roof line and should disappear under the roofing for a nice - clean finished installation.
End Caps . . . Close the system off to prevent birds, bees, animals, etc... from entering the gutter system and nesting.
End Caps are 2.5"x 6" flat aluminum stock.
Painted Enamel (Black) Each end cap will need to be individually fabricated on site because each gutter position is different than the last. Skill & craftsmanship is needed to fabricate a snug fitting end cap.
