Default Re: Gosh darn gutters

My guess is that they would get clogged with dirt and the oak leaves would stick to the porus material. I opted for the Gutter Helmut last year. While looked kind of ugly at the sample, installed you don't even notice them .... at least not on my house. But I don't have copper gutters. I've known a few people that have opted for the mesh or screen type sheild and have regretted it. I'm very pleased with the gutter helmut because not only do I not have to clean them, but the original gutters were spaced too far from the house and a lot of water would fall between the house and the gutter. The Gutter Helmut cured that. Good luck with your decision.
