In an effort to save on expenses, many people have opted to tackle home improvement projects on their own. One common projects is gutter cleaning. If leaves and debris in your gutters are left unchecked, they could clog them up and cause excess water to overflow, possibly damaging other areas of your home. Seamless Exteriors looks at the best reasons to avoid DIY gutter work and explains how Gutter Helmet® is the best solution.

Why you shouldn’t DIY

The simple truth is that DIY doesn’t save you as much money as you think. In order to do it properly, you have to have the right tools. These tools include a sturdy ladder of the right height, a powerful enough hose, a properly shaped scoop, and safety equipment. All of these can be costly to purchase yourself. Without having these, there are too many risks you don’t want to take. Unsturdy ladders might lead to falls, surfaces will get slick once winter comes around, and it’s strenuous if you want to be thorough about everything.
