GutterDome, Inc. was launched 2010 in California. The company was founded by many ex-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:

Value 3.4/5
click to read category notes

GutterDome is a cost effective system in the micro-mesh category with reported pricing ranging from $16-19 /ft.

Protection Coefficient 3/5
click to read category notes

The Gutter Dome system, with its larger hole size (1,600 holes per square inch) reduces most clogging. Pollen is allowed to penetrate through the mesh while keeping out roof grit, leaves, pine needles and catkins. However, between the dome peak and the shingles, there is a “dome divot” that tends to collect debris over time requiring a relatively frequent brushing in that groove to keep it clean.

Industry Reputation 2/5
click to read category notes

Gutter Dome has had significant success in the last few years but is experiencing some recent turbulence with the debris build up problems related to the “dome divot.” In addition, the business model of this Venture Capital backed company is a competitive cutthroat dealership territory model that tends to force the hands of the dealers and incentivizes them to sell outside designated territories. This has led to some bad blood among the network of installers and dealers which is an overall negative for the customer, the primary responsibility.

Strength 5/5
click to read category notes

Gutter Dome continues to be one of the strongest gutter guards in the industry. 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 which stands up to an 8 lb weight dropped on it at a considerable height.

Water Throughput 3/5
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 an effective slowing mechanism allowing most of a heavy rain downpour to be captured in the first of four large channels. In heavy downpours, particularly when the dome divot is filled, the water tension is not broken by the dome incline and water runs off of the edge of the gutter.

Durability 5/5
click to read category notes

Gutter Dome has proven to be the strongest gutter protection system in the market place today. 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.



GutterDome Overall Rating and Review


In our opinion, Gutter Dome is a great product if your home does not see a lot of debris on the roof over time. It is reasonably priced for a micro mesh gutter guard


For over 7 years we have been reviewing gutter guards and publishing the results. From the first days of publishing and reporting on the gutter guard industry we have received requests for referrals or complaints about contractors who install a particular type of gutter cover.

Although our primarily mission is and remains to provide the best reviews and reporting for gutter covers, we realize that a gutter cover – no matter how perfectly engineered, works only as good as it is installed..

Over the years we have tried a number of ways to provide referrals for good contractors and installers while finding ways to warn our readers of the bad ones. After many years of trial and error we have found that the NCR verified program works the best, it provides an incentive for good contractors to stay good and weeds out the bad ones.

FAQ about NCR Verified Installers
  • Why do you have so few NCR verified installers and contractors?
    WWhat you see are the contractors who have undergone our community’s most thorough review and have not had a single complaint over the years they have been listed here, although we would love to see multiple installers in all the states – the reality is we just have not found so few that can meet our community’s standards, if you would like to recommend one, please contact us.
  • What to do if I do not have an installer/contractor in my state?
    You can certainly try your luck at finding one on the search engine, cragslist or the manufacturer’s webpage – however we cannot provide you any assistance if you happen to have a bad experience.

    Alternatively you may want to contact a NCR community verified installer in a nearby state, it may be possible that they may travel to your state and can help supervise the installation or supply you with the product for a guided DIY installation.

  • What if I have an issue with the above installer/contractor?
    If you have an issue with a NCR community verified Installer listed above, please post a comment on that installers/contractors page and contact them with the form we provide on the same page – this will start the resolution process.

    I’m not sure why but this web site is loading incredibly slow
    for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my
    end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

    I recently had GutterDome installed and I do not have to clean my gutters anymore. Now I have more free time to go fishing!

  3. Leif  September 23, 2016

    Hello.This post was extremely motivating, especially since
    I was looking for thoughts on this topic last Thursday.

  4. Vic  November 13, 2015

    My home is in Eugene, Oregon. We have several large maples and pine trees, causing a great deal of buildup in the gutters. I suspect the maple leafs will flow over the gutter just fine with most of the gutterguard products. I am concerned about the pine needles sticking to the mesh. My objective is to not need to get up on the roof to clean anymore(wife’s orders). Would the GutterDome work well in this situation. Heavy snows are not an issue at all here.Rain is maybe 1/2 inch per day.

    If the pine needles are not a problem, then the next question would be for an installer in Eugene.


  5. Tim  October 3, 2015

    Would not repeat, even for half the price!

    • Joanne  October 3, 2015

      Why wouldn’t you repeat gutter dome even for half the price? I am considering hiring them to install gutter dome and am curious what you found wrong? Thank you.

      • Tim  October 16, 2015

        The price was ok. a little more than others, but if you believe the sales pitch it might be worth it. However I dd not have a very good experience with the people that came to my house. First there were several different groups. One to remove the old and repair any damage. One to install the new. Another manager of the process I only heard from on the phone. The original sale person. Seemed very disconnected, no one was coordinating these people. A mess and lack of respect was was left from the first group. They pressured me constantly on time. When I hired them I told them they could start any day but Friday, bc I had a bunch of people at the house that day. They started on Friday! The people removing the old gutters , damage areas and concealed the damage(repairs were made once the manager showed up and saw the damage). Other areas were skipped over completely. Installers did not want to wait for the “removers” to finish and called for payment before the job was done.

        • MInksinn  October 23, 2015


          Your problems sound more like a contractor issue than a materials one. Would be interested in hearing how the product performs once the installation dust has settled.


          • Tom  March 19, 2017

            The installation is just as important as would be the product. That’s one thing you should always look out for. Most that use Subcontractors don’t train them much at all.

  6. Tom  September 2, 2015


    You got my attention, so I took a look at your videos and information.

    “You have a hole in your swing.” Have you ever heard that line. Mr. Baseball.

    Anyhow, you have a huge weakness in your product. The idea of gutter protection products provide better “protection” than your product. It has to do with the protection of the house more than just cleaning your gutter. Any ape can clean a gutter quickly and easily–and cheaply! I guess that’s why you named it as you did?

    I am not going to demean your product and tell what the hole is, your customers will find it.

  8. Tyson Matter  June 18, 2015


    I put your website of impartial gutter cover reviews thru the Internet Wayback Machine & saw that from June 2010 to April 2012 you rated GutterGlove highest in Protection Coefficient, Strength, Water Throughput, Durability + gave it 5 stars while calling it the best gutter guard system.

    In June 2012 you then chose Gutter Dome as Best Gutter Guard System & changed your opinion of GutterGlove by reducing your rating of all categories listed above.

    I’m just curious how your testing methodology suggested the changes? Did the GutterGlove actually lose strength, durability, etc. ?

    I’ll look forward to reading your follow-up post.

    • Greg  June 26, 2015

      The owner of this site switched from being a gutterglove dealer to a gutter dome dealer at that time.

    • Josh  October 16, 2015

      Gutter Dome was only established on 2014 so yeah, i think the people running this page just saw that a better product was around

    • NCR  August 31, 2016


      As new and better products enter the market we must adjust our ratings based on the improved performance characteristics of the new products to stay relevant as not all things are good forever (think of DOS and Windows 98)

  9. Shane  May 27, 2015

    I bought Gutterdome and works until you have issues like a piece came off and clogged up the gutters. Wayne/CEO sold me the products stating the great warranty. I’ve called 4 times to his cell, texted 2 time and 4 emails. No replies. Now 3 stories high I have to hire someone to unclog gutters and replace piece that came off. I mostly upset that the CEO would lie directly to me on the services he provides and hides from a phone call being a state away from me. Just not good business.

    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?

  16. Joe  September 14, 2012

    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.

    • Greg  September 18, 2012

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

    • NCR  September 24, 2012


      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.

      • Greg  November 13, 2013

        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?

        • Josh  January 24, 2014

          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.

          • Greg  January 25, 2014

            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!!!!
            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

        • Shelly  February 16, 2017

          I’m curious about this mud problem. Where in the US do people have that much mud on their roof and why? 😕

          • Thomas Tusing  March 17, 2017

            It’s not mud they are complaining about it’s more or a mulch that has broke down into a mud like form. Happens after it you have a lot of trees close to your home.

  17. Matthew  September 5, 2012


    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,
