Not all gutter protection systems deliver on their promise to protect your gutters from clogs. In today’s post, Gutter Helmet® of Eastern NY, a heated gutters installer, explains why whisker gutter guards are not a good option.
Whisker gutter guards have bristles that trap dirt and allow water to pass through your gutters. The main problem with the design is it does not guarantee a maintenance-free gutter. You still need to climb a ladder and remove all the accumulated debris by hand. This basically defeats the purpose of the gutter guard.
Apart from maintenance issues, whisker gutter guards are also an eyesore. The bristles usually stick out of your gutters, which can affect the overall look of your exterior. Invest in a higher quality gutter cover system with a sleek design rather than spending your hard-earned money on subpar gutter guards that reduce your home’s curb appeal and don’t work well.
Since manual cleaning is necessary to keep whisker gutter guards functional, some homeowners choose to frequently replace them instead of removing dried leaves, twigs and other debris. Continually re-installing whisker gutter guards is costly and time-consuming. For a long-term maintenance solution, get in touch with your local Gutter Helmet contractor.
