Question DetailsAsked on 8/12/2015

I have a serious problem with gutter overflow. I had Weather Armour gutters installed and this did not fix problm

The overflow is in 2 or 3 locations. I called Weather Armor back to fix the problem, but they sent out a man who spoke virtually no English and we could not communicate. He did something up on the roof. Could not understand him and problem was not fixed. I had a new roof put on 2 years ago. I asked those men if they could see what the problem was, but again, whatever they did, it was not effective.

According to the website of Weather Armor they install Gutter Glove covers on their gutters. I will assume it was same cover 3 years ago and I am sorry to tell you Glove has no warranty on performance. If they put another cover up, too bad Glove is a pretty good cover, in the top 5. I sell a competing cover in a different market but I suggest youcall a LeafFilter or MasterShield dealer out and see what a micro mesh competitor has to say.

If your overflow is right below valleys or places where other gutters from a higher roof pour down the roof so teh concentrated flow overshoots or overflows the gutters, then you probably need gutter deflectors - look generally like this, though there are many different -

The best kind form a curved wye - with the center of the wye in the center of the valley, curving away to each side so the flow is directed along the gutters rather than splashing perpendicular into them and "piling up" in the gutter like the above one does - but you have to be careful to prevent flow in behind the gutters or under the roofing.
