The pictures say it all. Too often customers think that since they don't want to deal with the maintenance of their gutters, they will have a cover installed.
This customer has aluminum mesh gutter screen and a locust tree which is simply a bad combination if you ask me. The leaves on the locust tree are small and can fit in anywhere. There are also tiny stem-like pieces that get trapped under the spike and furl in the gutters. Then the leaves cause a back up in the spouting.
Covering up your gutters won't save you a cleaning. In fact now we have something extra to contend with.
