Gutter Protection advice
Gutter guard systems are great in theory. But sadly, they are not great in the long run. The gutter screen or helmet systems on the market today work great for the first season or so. But slowly debris (leaves, needles, dirt, and/or sand) will enter the gutter. NOW this muck is stuck and hidden; it builds up slowly. Two or more years down the road, the top of the system also gets covered and or clogged. Manual cleaning is still required to clear the top AND someone has to remove the guards to get to the trapped muck inside. This cleaning process costs more than the savings.
