Blocked gutters and underperforming gutter protection also cause water damage and are costly to maintain.

Gutters and their protective components should be tailor made to fit your circumstances and your home. Do you live in an area with lots of rain, ice, snow, trees, or birds and vermin? How is your home situated on your property? All these factors must be considered when choosing the correct gutter protection. Homeowners should also consider gutter protection that comes in a variety of colors to complete your curb appeal, is guaranteed for life, and never clogs which means much less maintenance. When you purchase gutters with these important considerations in mind you will know you have done your due diligence in protecting your home and property.
Finding a professional gutter company that can work with you and recommend the proper gutters for your home, roof, weather conditions, area, and curb appeal is so important. The last thing you want to do is make an investment with a company that provides substandard products or services. There are so many gutter products on the market and some home improvement store clerks may try to lead you to believe that choosing the proper gutter protection is something they can help you purchase. The trouble with following that path is they have not personally been to your home to see the surrounding environment, the roof lines, the condition of the existing gutters, etc.
The Consumer Reports.org shares a video emphasizing the importance of using the proper gutter protection. There are many types of gutter protection. Choosing the wrong type will not only provide the protection you need, but improperly installed gutters may also void the warranty on your roof.
The bottom line is: Do your homework. Reach out to a professional gutter company and get their advice and recommendations after they have visited your home and done a thorough inspection. Check with Angie’s List and the Better Business Bureau. Ask questions and do not even consider or attempt to install your own gutter protection.
