While some home improvement projects (like bird feeders and repainting corner tables) really can be done with little to no professional help, some projects are just too complex to accomplish by yourself. In this article, you’ll learn about the great Gutter Helmet® reviews we get all the time and how these can make you think twice about making gutter installation a DIY project.



It’s More Difficult Than It Seems

Even if you have access to countless DIY guides online and the materials needed to cobble together a gutter system, it doesn’t mean you should go ahead and install your own gutters. Gutter installation contractors make it look easy not because it’s easy, but because they’ve trained extensively and have installed countless other gutters throughout their careers. Meanwhile, you, the homeowner with a can-do attitude, probably shouldn’t be going anywhere near your gutters for your own safety.

DIY Won’t Save You Money in the Long Run

If you’re considering installing gutters by yourself, you’re probably thinking about the money you can save on the materials as well as the labor costs. However, since you’re likely to make mistakes, you’ll likely be making multiple trips to the hardware store. 

Math Skills are a Must

Let’s say you did pretty well in math back when you were still in school. Those math skills are a requirement for installing gutters, but not the kind that you might be familiar with. There are many factors to be measured and considered, such as downspouts, drainage areas, roof pitch, water capacity and how much each type of material will expand or contract depending on the changes in temperature.

Some home improvement projects really are best left to professionals. If you want hassle-free gutter installation that will save you money in the long run, Gutter Helmet of Eastern Shore can help!
