The article: How does Gutter-mesh Work shows a newly desighed gutter mesh with a little difference to others; intoduces the advantages and potential concerns. And we can get to know how it looks like from the description, how it works. Also tell us some additionnal goodnesses of using gutter mesh. 

The micro-mesh approach does a better job overall. The basic theory is the same but smaller holes allow for less trapping and better cleaning by the wind. A company called Gutter Glove makes this type of product.

This is the dilemma and the design challenge – allow rain water to be properly routed, while keeping out leafs, tree flower buds, evergreen pine needles, and seed pods. An additional concern is snow and ice build-up in the winter.

Mesh gutter guards are sheets filled with holes that cover the gutter and attach to the roof shingles. Small holes are better than large holes because they don't clog as easily. Smaller holes sift out all the debris but let water fall down into the gutter.

Mesh systems that prevents leaves, debris and other undesirables entering gutters. This system mounts from the top outside edge of the gutter, across the gutter section and attaches to the roof surface, creating a platform that suspends solids above the gutters allowing the majority of build up to be blown away. As a result blocked gutters and downpipes that can cause flooding and damage to your home are prevented as well as ensuring that gutters dry quickly after rain. Dry gutters last longer and require less maintenance, they also eliminate potential mosquito breeding habitats.

Products that cause sheeting also prevent sunlight and breeze from sufficiently entering the system and thus gutters can remain wet for extended periods of time and provide prefect location for spiders mosquitoes and rusted out gutters.
