Rain gutter covers and gutter protection systems have been growing in popularity in recent years, and much of this popularity is owed to the simple genius behind their designs. Clogged gutters can cause a number of different problems in your home. Often, the culprit for clogging are fallen leaves, twigs and other debris that end up inside your eavestroughs. Gutter guards simply cover the top part of your gutter to prevent this from happening while, at the same time, keeping water drainage at an optimum rate.

Install Rain Gutter Covers

Because so many people are taking advantage of gutter protection systems, it’s not unusual to find these products lining the shelves of your local handyman store. In fact, you may even be tempted to buy a set and install it yourself, and this is where the problem begins. DIY installations can actually do more harm than good. 

Incorrect Installation

When you hire a professional to install a Gutter Helmet® system, for example, you’re not just getting the product itself, but also a guarantee that your new gutter protection system will perform as well as it should. Taking a DIY approach has no such guarantees, unfortunately. In the long run, this does more harm than good because the problems caused by blocked gutters can go undetected for a long time.

Safety Issues

Putting up the guards yourself means getting up to the roof level to do the job. This entails risks of accidents from falling from ladders and other kinds of injury. A professional installer will take precautions to avoid such accidents, potentially saving you from a lot of hurt and trouble.

Warranty Protection

In case there are problems with your rain gutter covers, which is unlikely, you are also protected by product and labor warranties should you choose to hire a professional installation company. The value of this alone provides enough to justify not taking a DIY route.
