Gutter Protection Reviews: How Some Gutters on the Market Are Tested
The gutter protection reviews being done by the NC Review Consumer Advocacy Group is dedicated to testing the different gutter guards on the market today, and looking for the best and most reliable system that can ensure that your gutters remain unclogged by any debris. Their testing goes through three phases: strength, water throughput and durability. For the strength test, weights of 2, 3, and 5 pounds are dropped on the gutter guards to simulate the scenario of a tree branch falling on the gutters. This test is important because it can determine the safety of your gutters from accidents.
