Gutter Covers And Steep Roofs
Will gutter covers work on a Mansard (very steep) roof?
Maybe, many gutter guards are not recommended for very steep or very shallow roof pitches greater than 12 on 12 or lower that 3 on 12.
How about your gutter covers, can they be installed on a mansard roof and how is it done?
Yes, the Waterloov Gutter Guards have been installed successfully for twenty years on Mansard roofs.
leaf guards can be installed on any pitch of roof even almost vertical. The gutter protectors are installed either by bending the back of the waterloov gutter guards to match the near vertical roof and slid in under the roofing shingle or a ledge can be installed against the roofing with the rear edge of the Waterloov leaf guards laid on top of the ledge.
The Waterloov panels can be manipulated in the field or modified during production to fit any roof pitch and just about any gutter location.
