My spousal unit just spent a couple of hours cleaning our gutters out as I gathered the detritus he flung to the ground. We’re getting way too old for this silliness and we’re considering 2 alternatives - gutter helmets or paying someone else to clean our gutters. Our house is a ranch, with roughly 70’ of straight gutters both front and back. A number of trees overhang parts of the house, so we get leaves and other gunk in the gutters.
We’ve seen gutter helmets demonstrated at home shows and they look to be pretty good, but a demo isn’t real life. So I’m asking if anyone here has them and how well do they work? How expensive are they to have installed?
