3 Reasons Dallas Homeowners Love Gutter Guards


  • Gutter guards prevent several types of damage.
  • Gutter guards allow you to save time and stay safe.
  • Gutter guards are also a money saver for many households.

You know why your home needs gutters. They prevent water from leaking into your home through the roof, they prevent water damage to your siding and foundation, and they prevent damage to your landscaping by guiding the water away from your home in a safe fashion. But why do you need gutter guards? Take a look at some of the most important benefits that Dallas homeowners get from using gutter guards.

Prevent Damage From Clogs

Gutters filled with leaves.
Don’t let leaves and other debris clog up your gutter.

The thing about gutters is that they only prevent all of that home and landscape damage if water flows freely through them. If they become clogged, the water will build up and spill over the gutters, causing the same water damage to the home and landscaping that you want the gutters to prevent.

Gutter guards prevent clogs from happening in the first place. They allow water into the gutters, but not debris and leaf buildup, meaning that the water flows freely. Gutter guards help your gutters do their jobs.

Keep Yourself on the Ground

Why risk injury by climbing up on your roof?

“But why can’t I just clear the clogs myself?” you might be thinking. Sure, you could do that. Without gutter guards, homeowners have no choice to consider alternate ways to clean out their gutters because the clogs will build up. But there are two good reasons why you don’t want to do it yourself.

One is time. Are you a gutter professional? Because if not, the chances are good that your time is more valuable when you spend it somewhere else, whether that means paying for work that you are good at or unwinding with your family. Gutter guards give you the time that you would have spent cleaning out the gutters back, and you can use it in the way most valuable to you.

The other reason is safety. Gutters are high up off the ground, which often means that you have to climb up to the roof to clean out clogs thoroughly. This can be dangerous, and for some people, impossible because of physical limitations. And even if you can do it, why take the risk? Gutter guards keep your feet planted firmly on the ground, where you’re safer.

Save Yourself Money

“But I can always pay a gutter cleaning service if I don’t want to clean them myself!” This might be your next thought. And again, sure, you can do that. But how much does that cost? Installation of gutter guards may cost more upfront. Still, if you add up how much you’d spend for gutter cleaning over the life of the gutter guards, you’ll actually save money by just installing the guards instead of shelling out each time you need a cleaning.

Plus, when gutter cleaning needs to be done, it needs to be done now or risk expensive damage. What if you don’t notice the clog and book the cleaning service in time? What if the cleaning service is backed up during a heavy storm season and can’t get around to clearing your clog right away? Now you’re looking at the possibility of damage to your home, gutters, and landscaping – all of which will cost money to fix. With gutter guards installed, you won’t find yourself in this situation in the first place.

I recently had the Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet installed on my house. It not only looks amazing, but the guys arrived on time, were professional and efficiently got the job done. I am very satisfied with Gutter Helmet's attention to detail and fulfilling their work as promised. I will definitely tell my neighbors about the Gutter Helmet.
I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.
Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!
VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.
We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
We just had Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters and couldn't be happier. They provided us with useful information about Gutter Helmet and cleaned up everything, leaving no mess behind. We definitely recommend Gutter Helmet to anyone considering this product.
