Just seeing this. But I agree with other comments. Gutter Topper is the only cover to use. It is the best and has a lifetime waratny. www. guttertopper.com check it out. You can check our site out with some exapmples also tho we are out of Utah. www.utahgutter.com
I am a 4th generation gutter guy and we have looked at all the covers and tested many of them. Gutter Topper by far is the best. I actualy pesonaly know Marshal roofing as wel Troy is as honest as they come. I would call them.
We have not used this product but are familiar with it. It is NOT a screen type. It's actually similar to Leaf Relief, which is a good product. A number of roofing contractors in our area (MD) use it and have had good sucess.
There isn't any perfect product out there. Thay all have there pros & cons. Do research based on your paticular area, type of weather and trees around house.
I am unfamiliar with this product but from your picture it looks similar to many of the screen-type products that are available on the market. As a roofing contractor who has been installing "gutter protection" for over 30 years, we tend to not encourage 'screen-type' products as the maintenance is difficult and frequent. We have been installing GutterTopper for over 20 years in Wisconsin and our customers are very satisfied with it's performance. All products require maintenance, but GutterTopper's is the quickest and SAFEST by far.
I believe a dealer in your area is Marshall Roofing.

I hope this helps. The screen you are considering is much like ones we often remove because of customer dissatisfaction.
It is tough to say allthough tt can be normal assuming the gutters/fascia are metal and in an area of the home that receives direct sunlight (enough to cause expansion and contraction). IMO
Can't say I've ever heard them doing it when they cool down, but when the sun hits them in the morning, it can happen. If they're mounted to an aluminum facia, that can also transfer noise when expanding/contracting
Sagging gutters can be repaired a number of ways. If you are insistent on keeping the existing gutters, you will need to remove all the gutter spikes and replace them with hidden hangers. The recommended pitch is 1/4" per 10' of gutter. That can be a hassle, especially if some of the spikes are still in the gutter tight. Having a new gutter installed with hidden hangers that are screwed in is the next best thing to repairing and repitching the old ones. Hope that helps!
Sagging gutters can be an easy fix depending on the severity / condition of the existing material. Hidden hangers in the appropriate size (5" or 6") can be used to lift up the sagging areas in order to secure to the fascia boards and tighten as needed. If the gutters are severely warped or bent from ice dams and / or debris, then replacement is recommended. Contacting a professional to take care of this service is recommended unless the homeowner has experience working from ladders in order to avoid injury.
