MasterShield Gutter Guard Test: Honey, Oil & Maple Syrup


Ever wonder how your gutter guard would stand up to honey, oil or maple syrup? Okay, maybe you haven’t thought about it before, but doing so could be substantially valuable throughout the process of choosing your home’s system. So there was a MasterShield Gutter Guard Test. Consider this: What would happen if a sticky, water repelling material, such as the three mentioned, were to cover your gutter guard and it began to rain? The water would shoot right over and saturate your lawn – possibly causing costly damage to your foundation, landscape or decking. But what if you also knew that there was a product on the market that could take care of honey, oil and maple syrup in under 30 seconds? MasterShield Gutter Guard’s patented self cleaning microfilter can put your fears to rest, without you having to lift a finger. Now, we’re not going to fool ourselves into thinking that words alone could convince you. Luckily, MasterShield creator Alex Higginbotham recorded an actual test of this hypothetical occurrence, and even we were impressed. Take a look. Knowing that your gutter guard system can stand up to damaging substances – virtually anything you could throw at it – makes the investment a wise one.
