The mission of Microfiltration Gutter Products (MGP) is to eliminate the worst home maintenance chore imaginable and keep homeowners safely on the ground rather than climbing up wobbly ladders. Who wouldn’t want free time without having to think about gutter cleaning? We keep on finding ways to make micro mesh gutter guards even better.
MGP introduces copper, which is a natural oil thinner, into its gutter guard products. Copper ions, together with rainwater, creates a substance that is poisonous to moss, algae and lichen and serves to break them down.
MGP establishes its National Headquarters and manufacturing facility in Paterson, NJ.
MGP becomes the exclusive licensee for the Higginbotham patents (with exclusive license rights in metal to Patent 6,598,352) and is the only company to manufacture gutter guards with this exclusive technology.
A surgical-grade stainless steel microfilter is added to a gutter guard for the first time by Higginbotham.
Alex Higginbotham is awarded his first gutter guard patent and has his first commercial success with LeafFilter® Gutter Protection, which was named to Building Product Magazine’s Annual Top 100 List for 2003 and 2004.
Alex Higginbotham makes a fine screen work by preventing it from clogging with tiny debris or overshooting with water. When a fine microfilter is touched on the underside by a series of downward extensions, it does not just keep organic debris out of a gutter, but it also allows water to quickly flow through what looked like a sheer but solid surface.
Frustrated by traditional gutter guards that just didn’t work, MGP’s inventor, Alex Higginbotham, begins experimenting with filtration systems.
MasterShield® Gutter Protection has been the gold standard since its introduction in 2005. It is backed by genuine patent protected Higginbotham technology. It has features that aren’t built into other designs that make it work better season after season. MGP is continually looking to improve its gutter guard technology.
MGP recently added copper into our MasterShield product. Copper thins oils which leach from asphalt roofs and kills organisms like moss, algae and lichen which reduces clogs. Copper is also antimicrobial making water safe for pets and recyclable.
MasterShield is sold through MGP’s Dealer Network. Dealers own an exclusive territory and have the opportunity to dominate their region with the best technology available in gutter guards. MGP’s Dealers experience almost no call backs or product warranty failure claims.
