It all boils down to how well your roofing contractor takes care of your gutters and guards during the roof installation. Phalanx Gutter Guards are durable and built to last. They can be removed, trimmed, and otherwise modified to fit any roof style.
Yes. Gutter guards are pointless if the gutters they’re guarding are already dirty.
Phalanx Gutter Guards will work with any roof type — metal, cedar, asphalt, or flat.
Phalanx comes in mill finish, black, and copper.
All gutter guards fail eventually. Tree type, proximity, density, roof pitch, and roof composition are all factors in how often you need to clean your gutters. Most Phalanx systems need service every seven to ten years.
Phalanx Gutter Guards are 0.032” heavy-gauge aluminum, most squirrels cannot chew through the metal. However, some have been known to chew through the shingle-rake trim or boxing, circumventing the gutter guard to get into the attic.
Because Phalanx has the three most important elements of a gutter guard: 1, shed – the debris’ ability to slide off; 2, water handling – Phalanx has multiple water inlets; and 3, serviceability – Phalanx is the only guard with a maintenance door that can be opened for future service.
No, because Lifetime Gutter Company cannot guarantee guards that we are not certified to install.
That depends on the age of the gutters, if the slope is correct, if the size of the gutters correct, and if your gutters are adequate for your home. In most cases, if your gutters are less than eight years old, we can keep them.
