How do T-Rex and Gutter Clean System stand up to snow?

The T-Rex and the Gutter Clean System significantly reduce the weight of snow on your gutters. Since the snow can't get into the gutters, the weight they have to carry is limited to that which accumulate on top of Alu-Rex product.

What's more, the gutters remain fully functional so water from melting snow and ice can drain away freely

Can installation of the T-Rex and Gutter Clean System lead to leaks in my roof?

No. Alu-Rex products do not cause any leaks. No shingles are raised and no nails or screws go into the roof during installation.

Beware of look-alike products that require you to lift the shingles. These products can lead to leaks. In time, the asphalt shingles dry out and become brittle. It's never a good idea to lift shingles when installing gutter protection systems, whether they're nailed ins, screwed on, or simply set in place.

Do T-Rex aqnd the gutter Clean System require upkeep?

The Gutter Clean System® and the T-Rex™ are among the most efficient gutter protection systems on the market today.

In the vast majority of cases, al light breeze is enough to sweep away normal debris. In areas under the roof or under shallow overhangs on sloped roofs, debris may build up where the wind cannot reach it.

We recommend that you occasionally clean out these areas to keep your Alu-Rex products in good working order.

How does water get into the eavestrough?

Our exclusive Alu-Pref gutter cover technology is the result of extensive research and development. The product has 624 holes every 24 inches (61 cm). This allows water to drain at the same rate as a 2 in. x 3 in. (5 cm x 7.5 cm) downspout.

Rigorous testing by an independent certification agency has proven that Alu-Rex gutter cover can drain over 29,7 in. (755 mm) of water in an hour over a length of 20 feet (6 m). And with 50,000,000 feet (15 240 000 meter) of Alu-Rex products installed around the world, the figures speak for themselves...

Note. The highest amount of rainfall ever recorded worldwide was 12 in. (305 mm) of water in one hour (Holt, MO, 1947). In comparison, the Saguenay Flood in Quebec was triggered by 11 in. (275 mm) of rain in there days. Alu-Rex products would have been able to handle all that rain in just one hour- and three time more!

Overflow is usually caused by the eavestroughs themselves (not wide enough or deep enough for the roof surface) or the downspouts (insufficient number for the roof' surface). It is important to make sure there are enough downspouts to avoid this problem. For this purpose, you need to keep in mind that one downspout is enough to drain the equivalent on a 600sq. ft. (56 m2) roof.

In short, if you don't have backflow problem with your current eavestroughs in heavy rainfalls, the gutter Clean System® and T-Rex™ won't create them.
