4 Common Gutter Cover Complaints

By October 10, 2016October 18th, 2023No Comments

Gutter covers are designed to keep leaves, twigs, and other forms of debris from entering and clogging your gutter system. That said, each gutter cover functions differently from the other. For instance, screens can filter debris from the rainwater, while solid covers deflect debris while gathering rainwater.

Gutter Cover

Gutter Helmet® of Eastern Shore shares four common complaints homeowners have on gutter covers. We also show what makes Gutter Helmet® an exceptional gutter cover in Salisbury, Maryland.

1. Inefficient

While gutter covers also serve to discourage animal or insect infestation, a curved system or anything with a solid cover remains vulnerable to infestations. These creatures can still make a nest underneath your gutter system. There are also cases wherein the gutter cover’s features look good on paper, but are practically inefficient. Few systems consider the effect of roof oils that seep out of asphalt shingles. This enters your gutter system and can potentially lead to premature corrosion.

Another instance is that covers with some form of opening still allow small debris to enter your gutter system. This makes it hard for your system to clean due to your gutter cover hindering you from flushing the debris out of your gutters.

With our efficient Gutter Helmet, you can eliminate the need to clean your gutters. After all, it comes with a ribbed surface that lets it handle rainwater, snow, and strong winds for a long period. It also features a nose-forward design that blocks any form of debris from entering your gutter system. Furthermore, Gutter Helmet comes with PermaLife™ finish that protects it from the effects of harsh climate conditions. Lastly, it comes with a transferable triple lifetime warranty for your peace of mind.

2. Costly

High-quality gutter covers tend to be pricier. There are micro-mesh systems and heated gutters covers that fetch for a high price, which can turn off homeowners.

Fortunately, Gutter Helmet comes with reliable features that make it a good long-term investment. It will reduce the need to replace your gutters or your gutter cover, letting you recoup your initial investment over time. Furthermore, it will prevent problems associated with clogged gutters that lead to costly repairs.

3. Improper Installation
