Is It A Screen?
Technically a screen is made up of interwoven strands, which this is not. Patented 100% Stainless Steel Gutter Trojan starts out as a panel that is stamped and expanded as shown below. This gives our mesh the appearance and functionality of a screen with the added durability of a panel, while eliminating the possibility for strand shifting that causes discrepancies in hole diameters.
Is There Any Maintenance Required?
On most applications, the design of the product will completely eliminate the need for routine maintenance. Patented 100% Stainless Steel Gutter Trojan is designed to filter your gutters from any debris larger than a grain of sand long enough for them to dry and be carried off by the wind. There are certain areas that are structurally protected from the wind and will not allow for this process to take place. In these instances, debris may have to be removed from the top of our product along with nearby roofing shingles. Although our product is designed to still be very effective if debris has collected, it is never a good idea to allow leaves and debris to accumulate on roofing systems
Is It Really 100% Stainless Steel?
Absolutely ! Gutter Trojan is manufactured with AISI 304 Stainless Steel. Even the zip screws used for the installation are Stainless Steel.
Is Gutter Trojan™ Durable?
This is why we chose the Stainless Steel material in the first place. Most of the products that we have tried in the past have not held up to our harsh Wisconsin winters. Aluminum, vinyl, foam, polyurethane, and other of our competitors materials cannot match the durability of Stainless Steel.
What About Pollen, Seed Pods and Pine Needles?
Patented 100% Stainless Steel Gutter Trojan was specifically designed with these items in mind. Many of the screen type systems on the market today have, in our experience, too fine of a screen where pollen and other small airborne culprits are not allowed to flow through and eventually plug up the filter. Gutter Trojan is designed to let the small items that are not a threat to your gutters and downspouts flow right through. The next time you have a significant rain, they simply wash away.
How Important Is 100% Use Of The Gutters Volume?
Gutter systems, just like any systems, have a capacity. Only so much water is going to be allowed into that system before it reaches its maximum capacity and overflows. When gutters overflow it can cause damage to expensive decking and landscaping and can cause many other problems related to basements and foundations. Patented 100% Stainless Steel Gutter Trojan is specifically designed not to limit the capacity of your gutter system, but just the opposite. It will keep your gutters free of leaves and debris so in the event of a storm with heavy rains your gutters will do the best possible job of routing that water where it is not going to cause damage.
What About Snow and Ice Buildup?
Patented 100% Stainless Steel Gutter Trojan was invented, developed, tested, and tested again in Wisconsin, about 30 minutes from Green Bay, where we know a little about snow and ice. Ice damming inside the gutters usually occurs when debris holds up the flow of water long enough for it to freeze which in turn compounds the problem. Gutter Trojan will keep that debris from ever making it into the gutters in the first place. An added benefit is that sheets of ice will not get hung up on the lead edge of the gutter, in worst cases causing the gutters to come loose from the fascia and hang or fall. Instead, Gutter Trojan gives it a path to slide right off the roof.
