Dangers of Installing Poor-Quality Gutter Guards

By June 17, 2016October 17th, 2023No Comments

Your gutters play the crucial task of draining water away from the vulnerable parts of your home like the siding, windows, and foundation. To do this job efficiently, it is important that you keep them clear of leaves and debris through regular cleaning and maintenance.

That’s where the role of gutter guards comes in. These systems protect your gutters by keeping dirt and debris out, and allowing only water to flow in. Nevertheless, you’ll need to make sure that you’re getting a quality system or you could end up with problems that may cost you a lot to fix. Let Infinity Home Improvements explain some dangers of installing a low-grade gutter guard over your gutter in Wyoming, Michigan:

Gutter Leaks

Poor quality gutter guards will not be able to withstand the constant barrage of rain, hail, and snow with each seasonal change. As such, they can easily corrode and break down on the gutters, which can cause them to leak.

That’s why we install Gutter Helmet® gutter covers, which feature a patented nose-forward design for smooth operation and Permalife™ finish to protect against corrosion and fading. It can handle up to 22 inches of rain per hour, so you can be sure that it will hold its own no matter the weather.

Sagging Gutters

If your gutter guards are unable to stay in place firmly, their weight can rest on the gutters and cause them to sag. Low quality covers that clip onto gutters and slide under the shingles can also damage the roof by allowing debris to amass next to the fascia and cause rot. When this occurs, you may need to change your gutters completely to avoid high repair costs down the line. Gutter Helmet comes with a heavy-duty mounting bracket, which holds it in place even against heavy winds.


One of the best ways to identify a quality product is to check the scope of the warranty. Poor quality gutter guards do not last long so they may come with a short term warranty, if any warranty at all. When we install Gutter Helmet for your gutter in Wyoming, Michigan, we will back it up with a lifetime warranty so you won’t have to install any other gutter guard again.
