    Tiger stripes on gutters

    I have no problem getting the stripes off but I don't know what causes them, does anyone have a clue?

    ive heard a lot of different things, but i think it is just dirt/acid rain that gets covered up by oxidation. kinda like when you wash an old house w/ white vinyl and it has dirt on it that wont come off

    I was told from my local shop that it was from the asphalt on shingles and from the road. Some electrostatic bonding occurs.

    Lowe's was carrying a similar product and I was goint to try them out on my gutters but the next time I went in they were not there...evidently they didn't do the job or just not enough interest in them...if they do work it might be an interesting upsale

    There is no reason to try anything other than F-13 or Westley's Bleach White on gutters. Period.

    Re: Tiger stripes on gutters

    One day I was working on a property and it began to rain. I was right a the roof line in the perfect light to see exactly what was happening with rain and the streaks. Drops of rain were hitting the roof right at the edge on the shingles and then splashing onto the top edge of the gutter. The drops would then run down the front side of the gutter. I'm conviced based on what I observed, that when the drops bounce off the shingle they pick up a small amount of asphalt with it and the splash then lands of the edge of the gutter and eventually runs down the front thus streaking the gutter.
