Investing in gutter protection systems is an excellent way to keep your gutters clean and clog-free, with no work on your part. While some homeowners choose to install DIY covers and mesh screens for their gutters, there are certain risks that may come with this option.

Reasons to Ditch DIY Gutter Guards

Chattahoochee Gutter Co., Inc. discusses how DIY gutter guards can compromise your protection:

Poor Performance

Not all gutter protection systems offer the same level of performance. Perforated metal guards, for instance, are not efficient in keeping small debris out. Pods, seeds and pine needles can get stuck in the perforations, causing water to overflow. Foam, on the other hand, becomes brittle after only two years. This allows shingle granules to pass through and congest the system.

If you install Gutter Helmet®, however, you’ll never have to worry about gutter guard cleaning again. The system comes with a nose-forward design and a narrow opening to filter out leaves, dirt and other debris. It also has a ribbed surface that allows water to cling to it as it passes down into the system. These features ensure that your gutters will deliver peak performance for many years.

Mismatched Covers

There are several types of gutter protection systems, and each of them has its own pros and cons. By taking the DIY route, you might end up choosing one that doesn’t fit your unique needs. To ensure your gutters stay in top condition, it’s best to invest in innovative products like Gutter Helmet. It’s custom-made to fit your home’s specifications.

Improper Installation

Without the proper skills and experience, it’s easy to commit a mistake during the installation process. Inaccurate measurements, for instance, can prevent your gutter covers from performing the way they should. The tools you use might also puncture the seams of the system.
