Many people now have the option to avoid gutter cleaning by investing in rain gutter covers. The tricky part, however, is finding a perfect type of gutter cover that can effectively block blown-away debris. For instance, whisker gutter guards may seem like a good option, but their design isn’t reliable for complete gutter protection.

The 3 Downsides of Whisker Gutter Guards

Mr. Fix It explains the downsides of whisker gutter guards, and discusses why Gutter Helmet® is a superior choice.

Cleaning Is Still Necessary

For those who are unfamiliar with a whisker gutter guard, it looks like a metal “brush” that traps leaves and other forms of debris with its bristles. The problem with this design is you still need to remove the accumulated dirt. There are also some instances when debris is impossible to pull out.

Not a Permanent Solution

Whisker gutter guards aren’t the best option when you want a long-term gutter cleaning solution. They may be economical, but they can only provide temporary protection. Most whisker gutter guards deteriorate quickly. This also means you still need to spend on new gutter guards once your current ones begin to fail.

Not Aesthetically Appealing

The bristles of your whisker gutter guards may stick out, which can compromise your home’s curb appeal. This is one reason why you need to pay for a professional gutter protection system that can help create a sleeker roofline.

Why Choose Gutter Helmet?

Unlike ordinary rain gutter covers, Gutter Helmet has a reliable nose-forward design and a ribbed surface that prevents debris from entering your gutter system. It also comes with a PermaLife™ finish that resists fading, chalking and cracking. This means your gutter guards will stay beautiful even after years of exposure to the harsh elements. Plus, Gutter Helmet is backed by a Triple Lifetime Warranty that protects your investment.
