Introducing the new and improved Raindrop® Gutter Guard Flex-Flange which allows each piece to fit on virtually every home and situation. The Flex-Flange “hinges” are at both the 5 inch and 6 inch points so it will fit both 5 & 6 inch gutters.
Not only does the Flex-Flange allow the Raindrop® Gutter Guard to fit different size gutters with the same piece, it adjusts to the changing pitch of the gutter with ease and a seamless look too.
The first version of the back Flange was solid and without grooves. This made if difficult for the Flange to slide up under the shingles. It was also a pain in the “you know what” to get the flange to bend and match the pitch of the roof; but with the introduction of the Flex-Flange, installation has become much easier.
Another great benefit is that each piece can now be installed “Drop-In Style.” This means that the guard does not need to go up under the shingles, it can bend down into the back of the gutter. With this design change added to the back flange, installation has also become much, much easier. Faster installation on all roof types including metal roofs, tile roofs, cedar shake roofs and even flat roofs.
The Flex-Flange can also be trimmed at the 5 inch or the 6 inch mark when needed, in order to make for a better installation.
