Gutters are an essential component of your home yet they are often times the most neglected. As with anything there are differing opinions on the importance of keeping gutters cleaned both on the outside and the inside. When it comes to cleaning the inside of your gutters most homeowners opt for the DIY route. They pull the old ladder out from the shed or under the deck and scale up to the top where they have their annual or semi-annual rendezvous with gutters filled with different types of debris. Some find it helpful to wear gloves and others buy specialized tools parentheses or improvise special tools to scoop the contents of their gutter system.

While on top of the ladder it’s possible to assess the condition of your roof with a glance or to even gauge the necessity of repairs to your gutters. More and more of those annual and semi-annual gutter cleaners are becoming hip to the fact that performing this traditional task is not only unsafe but unnecessary. The same people are tiring of handing out money to a company to have their guttters cleaned.

Here is a list of things to consider when selecting a gutter protection system:

  • What type of debris will pose the biggest issue to my current gutter system?
  • Are my gutters solid enough or do they need repair?
  • What are the advantages of having a professional business install quality gutter guards?

Having guards installed will prevent leaves and other debris from clogging gutters and creating the potential for catastrophic damage caused by failed gutters. Pro installation is the best option for homes that have more than a single floor. Although a lot of single story homeowners might want to install a big box system which costs approximately one dollar to four dollars per linear foot, it is not recommended. Just look at the photos above.

Top Reviews from Consumer Reports vs. other Gutter Guard System on the Market

gutter guards are the ideal instrument to save homeowners money and reduce exposure to dangerous household maintenance tasks. But of course, not all gutter guards are built the same.  In fact, there is a wide gulf between the advantages of big-box low-quality gutter guards versus professionally installed high quality gutter protection.
