What to Look For in a Gutter Protection System

By January 12, 2016October 18th, 2023No Comments

Your gutters aren’t there for decoration, they are necessary to protect your home from water damage. Yet keeping them free of debris and free-flowing can be a challenge. The solution is to install gutter protection systems that keep your gutters from getting clogged! Following are key things to look for when purchasing one of these systems.

Reliable Performance
Any system for protecting a gutter needs to be designed in such a way that it consistently performs in any reasonable weather condition. Look for a product that is proven to work regardless of the amount of rain, every time. Damage to a roof occurs when the gutter system does not function properly and water manages to spill over the sides or seep into your roofing system. If gutter protection consistently works, then there is no chance of roof damage.

Limited Maintenance
Great gutter protection systems eliminate the need for gutter cleaning, doing away with one maintenance task homeowners frequently are faced with. Further, one should seek a product that is made with a high-quality, durable protective finish so no painting or repairs are needed.

Great Reviews
Another factor to be taken into consideration when selecting a gutter cover (or any product for your home, for that matter) is its reputation. Not everyone will have the same experience, but a high number of good reviews should certainly be taken into consideration in your choice of gutter protection.

Reasonable Price
Everyone wants to find a solution to clogged gutters that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Of course consumers want the cheapest price. However, let’s not forget that you often get what you pay for! The costs that can be incurred from a cheap but unreliable gutter cap that fails to perform – and potentially causes extensive damage to your home – should be considered when calculating what is “reasonable.”

Great Warranty
Make sure that your chosen gutter protection product has a good warranty to protect your investment for the long run. You are protected for a lifetime when you register a new Gutter Helmet® system. Only Gutter Helmet® comes with a Triple Lifetime Warranty.
