Reasons to Ditch Whisker Gutter Guards

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.

Maintenance

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.

Aesthetics

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.

Longevity

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.

Why Switch to Gutter Helmet

Why not consider installing Gutter Helmet as an alternative to whisker gutter guards? This gutter protection system has unique features that guarantee a smooth flow of water — and only water — in your gutters. It also comes with a PermaLife™ finish for a long-lasting beautiful finish that will enhance your home’s curb appeal.

The crew installed our gutters and completed the job in less time than anticipated. They were friendly, hardworking and cleaned up after they were done. I would recommend Gutter Helmet of Eastern NY to any home owner who needs new gutters.

We just had gutters installed on our house. It was pouring rain, cold, and we still had piles of snow in the areas that they had to work in. They showed up on time, never complained and had all gutters installed in less than three hours....in pouring rain! They were great, and we are extremely satisfied!

This is the second time I have hired Gutter Helmet of Eastern NY to install gutters on my home. They have an outstanding product! The work is done extremely well and professionally. I highly recommend them for all your home improvement needs.
