GutterDome Gutterguard Review

Manufacturer: GutterDome, Inc. Gutter Size Compatibility: 2″ to 7.5″
Material: Anodized Aluminum& Stainless Steel Fits Roof Types: ALL
Style/Type: Micro Mesh Certified Dealer Network: Yes
Installation: Pro Install & DIY Warranty: Yes


GutterDome, Inc. was launched 2010 in California. The company was founded by many X employees of GutterGlove ( a competing micromesh cover company) – from our interview; the general consensus for the split off and formation of GutterDome was the creation of an organization that focused on a much more cost effective and robust product design ( to that of GutterGlove Ultra Line) as well as dealer network that is committed to fair consumer practices. GutterDome is venture capital funded with a focus on efficient business practices, fiscal oversight and lean manufacturing. GutterDome was awarded United States Patent No. 8,495,837


 

GutterDome Ratings & Reviews from our Testing:


Price w/ Installation $$$
click to read category notes
We have found that GutterDome is one of the most cost effective systems, with pricing among the lowest among the micro-mesh category.
Protection Coefficient 5/5
click to read category notes
Our exhaustive testing has proven that the Gutter Dome system, with its larger hole size (1,600 holes per square inch) greatly reduces the possibility of clogging. Pollen is allowed to penetrate through the mesh while keeping out roof grit, leaves and catkins. Gutter Dome’s “Next Generation” engineering has developed a system which is stronger, offers better water throughput and minimizes any clogging.

Industry Reputation 4/5
click to read category notes
Gutter Dome is a breakaway company which has re-engineered a system that was developed over ten years ago and that has had significant success (Gutterglove – until now our top rated recommendation). It can be said that they have over 12 years of experience in gutter protection design, improving a system’s flaws and creating a “better mouse trap”. From or investigation they gather suggestions from experienced dealers and homeowners and modify the product to be as best as it could be- While the methodology of other product manufacturers seems to be ” we go this product, good or not let’s sell as much as we can”. GutterDome being a new break-through technology is developing a very strong and positive reputation.
Strength 5/5
click to read category notes
This is an area where Gutter Dome has excelled. The two, three and five pound weights dropped from equal heights on all samples tested, caused only a minor dent in the five pound weight test with Gutter Dome. All other systems generally incurred severe damage (with many of similar products seemed to have a problem with the mesh falling off following the drop test). Gutter Dome uses a high strength 6063 grade of aluminum and .010” diameter surgical grade stainless steel in a 1,600 hole per square inch engineered mesh and it seemed to do the trick for it’s incredible strength.

Water Throughput 5/5
click to read category notes
Gutter Dome engineered a system utilizing a different hole configuration to create a siphoning effect through their mesh. The contour of the extruded aluminum frame (the Dome) acts as a gentle but effective slowing mechanism allowing most of a heavy rain downpour to be captured in the first of four large channels. An innovatively machined pattern of hole openings in the extruded aluminum support panel allows all the rainwater to penetrate into the gutter without splashing or deflecting. Gutter Dome handles nearly 10 inches of metered rain per hour. We observed this with the UV died water and at 900 frames per second with our high speed camera.
Durability 5/5
click to read category notes
Gutter Dome has proven to be the strongest gutter protection system in the market place today (and this is setting the mark rather high). The screen mesh consisting of surgical grade stainless steel and the extruded/anodized aluminum substrate have gone through exhaustive corrosive test (with nasty things such as sulfuric acid ) with no negative effects. We can most likely say that it will outlast your home.

 

GutterDome Overall Rating and Review

5/5

 

In our opinion, Gutter Dome is the benchmark for gutter protection excellence and should continue to be for years to come ( It is hard for us to imagine how a better product can be engineered). Moreover it is much more reasonably priced (than most other micro-mesh systems) should guarantee Gutter Dome’s continued success. It is our #1 choice and recommendation in gutter protection for 2012 – 2013.

 

A gutter cover's performance and function are only as good as the installer that installs it - Due to overwhelming request, we have listed NCR verified dealers and installers; they were recommended by our readers, verified by us and have a one strike policy ( if we receive one complaint they are removed ). We hope that you will find this service useful and always eager to hear about your feedback.

    Hello,

    I install rainwater capture systems and see a whole lot of marketing BS in the gutter industry so I am trying to find an honest cost effective fit for my systems. I’ve had to rip out a 316 SS micromesh system becuase of water loss (30% to 40% at .24 gpm per lineral ft of gutter filter). So I am looking for a replacement but this time I will rely on test data, either my own or the manufacturers. I can test with a sample 2 ft. section or you can share with me your test results. The site quotes “Gutter Dome handles nearly 10 inches of metered rain per hour. We observed this with the UV died water and at 900 frames per second with our high speed camera.” Assuming 15 sqft of roof exposure per linear foot of guard, that is 1.55 gpm/ft of guard. Is this the absorbion rate you are quoting? What is the % water loss from spill-over tension accross the screen? Is the guard level or at roof pitch under the test? If you would give me an idea of the wire size (e.g. Mesh Per Inch: 14, Wire Diameter:0.0090″), then I could calcualte the expected rate of absorbsion installed at various roof pitches.

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Best regards,
    Matthew

      Matthew,

      The % water loss from spill-over tension accross the screen is minimal at less than 1% . We actually did an in-depth study of micro-mesh covers available at: Industry Research Reports | NCR Shop

    I’d also like a fair response around the organic growth with the micro-mesh. According to the 2012 updates, BOTH the GutterGlove Pro and Ultra ended up having organic growth within the mesh. I would imagine the exact same would happen with this system over time as well. Please indicate if you’ve seen this and/or if you haven’t run it through the same period of time. I suspect once organic growth begins, over time all these micro mesh systems will eventually clog substantially.

      You are correct, they also clog because of mud coming off the roof.

      @Joe,

      You are certainty correct that the micro mesh systems may be susceptible to organic growth and potential clogging, after testing for over two years in accelerated conditions, we observed very little buildup on the micro mesh products – GutterDome seemed to be the best performer in that regard as the mesh hole size was among the largest in the micro mesh category and it seemed that any growth (as well as shingle grit, sand and clay/mud ) would flush through quite quickly and did not pose a blockage.

        The mud does not flush through. It sits in the gutter
        I have real life photos, do you?
        You are not bring honest with people regarding this. Not good
        Why don’t you deal with the truth?

          Greg, have you checked the pitch of your gutters? If you have mud sitting in the gutters, perhaps your gutters need to be pitched properly to allow the water to flow out of them.

            Gutters were sloped properly. With micro screen the water was shooting over because it clogged
            The slow drip mud just drops into the gutter.
            Once a microscreen clogs there is no longer the force of water or the amount
            Of water to drain becauae it just drips over the edge of the gutter like there were never gutters at all.
            . This the mud sits inside the the gutter. This is why the homeowner ripped off the Microscreen
            We replaced it with the Gorilla Gutter Guard with our auto clean feature.
            Homeowner was scammed by salesperson with there bs warranty
            That covers gutters from clogging. Well that will never happen because
            The micro screen clogs!!!!
            Da!
            Gorilla Gutter Guard actually solves this problem and all the other problems that are cayaed
            By micro screen and surface tension products.

            See the only gutter guard on the market that handles the most water flow and can be maintainted from tne ground

    how does this product deal with ice dams forming on a roof and spilling off into the gutter. just built a house and am having a problem with ice dams forming on my garage roof , into a valley and the gutters causing leaking inside the garage. i was thinking of adding guard covers as part of a prevention along with using a roof rake. will this product be a plus in this situation?
