Common Gutter Questions

FAQ

Find answers to common questions about gutters and rain carrying systems from Western Products.

What is the Leafaway® Gutter Protection System?
Leafaway is a revolutionary, one-piece gutter protection system covered by a debris shedding shield with an exclusive patent pending pooling design.

How does the Leafaway Gutter Protection System work?
Liquid adhesion and gravity draw the water into your gutter while shedding debris, like leaves, pine cones and twigs that will often clog your gutters.  This eliminates the structural damage caused by failed gutters.

Will the Leafaway Gutter Protection System affect my roof and/or shingles?
No. Leafaway gutters are securely attached to your home’s fascia board, so your roof and shingles remain unaffected.

Can I buy the Leafaway Gutter Protection System and install it myself?
Because of the unique nature of the Leafaway system, it needs to be installed on-site by professional installation crews.

What is ice damming?
Ice damming happens when the heat from the house escapes through the roof and melts the snow on the roof. When the water runs down to the overhanging eaves there is no more heat from the house (because of the overhang) and it freezes. The ice builds up until eventually, it creates a dam that holds the water back. In extreme circumstances there is enough water that it works its way under the shingles and leaks through the eaves, or worse, into the house!
