MasterShield puts gutter protection and performance first. It is the next generation of microfilter gutter guards from industry inventor Alex Higginbotham, who created the critically acclaimed underlying microfiltration technology. He was awarded the first and several subsequent patents for his revolutionary way to protect a gutter.
Through LeafFilter®, his first commercial success, he pioneered his technology’s first real-world application−millions of feet of it have been installed. Right from the start, he took the feedback he got from installers and owners, went back to the drawing board and took his technology in a new direction. One of these changes led to an industry first: adding a surgical grade, stainless steel microfilter to a gutter guard.
MasterShield has the latest discoveries to further raise the bar on protection. Your home can be protected by everything new that’s been accomplished in the field through our exclusive partnership with Alex Higginbotham. A MasterShield system protecting your home ensures you’re getting the latest and best he has to offer the industry.
MasterShield has taken a quantum leap forward in gutter protection by using this patented, self-cleaning filtration to keep all debris out, but let rainwater in, even when the filter is pitched with the roof. Filters are the best way to separate liquids from solids and, in finding the most effective way to apply an advanced water filtration system to gutter protection, we’ve raised the performance bar for the industry.
Unique to MasterShield, our MicroVortex non-stick micromesh stainless steel filter woven only for us and exclusive, patented HydroVortex technology that allows us to be the only micro mesh gutter guard that doesn’t have to be installed virtually flat by creating a self-cleaning water vacuum that quickly siphons rainwater into the gutter. MasterShield’s superior technology will ensure years of worry-free protection for your home.
