Gutter Protection: Important Things to Look ForSeptember 04, 2018
The market has no shortage of gutter protection systems, all of which promise one thing: clog prevention. However, not all gutter protection systems perform as advertised, making them a waste of money.
To pick the perfect protection system to suit your aluminum gutters, Gutter Helmet® of Eastern NY recommends focusing on these key things:
A gutter cover is a system made up of major and minor components that contribute value to the whole. Learn about the anatomy of the product, the material each part is made of and understand how it works.
Ideally, your gutter cap itself should be coated with multiple layers of paint to protect the substrate from corrosion. To bear the weight of large amounts of water, it should have metal brackets. An aluminum alloy makes for an anti-corrosive load-bearing system, preventing serious hardware issues.
Gutter protection systems should contribute to your home’s curb appeal. They should hold up against acid rain and salt water. Otherwise, they will quickly become an eyesore.
When it comes to the color, you can never go wrong a neutral. Your exact choice should depend on your current home exterior palette. For visual harmony, pick a color that’s close to that of your gutters and downspouts.
Focus on the warranty that protects your gutter protection system. Invest in a gutter filter that comes with no-clog guarantee good for a lifetime. This way, you’ll have everlasting insurance against any performance deficiency. Moreover, a transferable warranty can give you leverage to get a higher asking price should you sell your property in the future.
