7 Questions to Ask Your Gutter Helmet Installer

You recognize Gutter Helmet as the dependable source of home gutter protection that it is. You know that its patented design repels solid debris while allowing runoff water to flow unimpeded into your gutters. And you’re keenly aware that Gutter Helmet can help prevent costly home repairs caused by rotting fascia boards, flooded basements, or compromised foundations.

But you may not have much information on the contractor who will be installing your Gutter Helmet system. So here are seven questions you should ask:

  1. Do you have any references?
    This is an excellent inquiry to pose to any contractor working on your home … but only if you actually check these references out. Because if you can’t find any satisfied customers, then a contractor doesn’t deserve your business. (For general testimonials about Gutter Helmet itself, click here.)
  2. Do you have the proper certification and insurance?
    Only contractors who are certified by Gutter Helmet are permitted to install Gutter Helmet products. So if the installer can’t produce this certification, then go with someone else. Also, it’s vital that the contractor carry an adequate amount of insurance so that you are protected in case a worker gets injured on your property.
  3. Will the Gutter Helmet system be able to handle the amount of precipitation that falls in my area?
    Gutter Helmet’s durable construction enables it to have the load-bearing capacity for even the heaviest snowfalls. And since Gutter Helmet can potentially handle 22 inches of rain per hour — which is two times more than the highest rate of precipitation ever recorded in the U.S. — you don’t have to worry about its rain-supporting capabilities.

  4. What factors affect the cost of my Gutter Helmet installation?
    The length of your gutters; the condition of your gutters, fascia, and roof; the necessity for special equipment to complete the installation; and the number of corners and stories on your home will affect how much you pay for the installation of the Gutter Helmet system. Don’t go with any contractor who tells you otherwise.
  5. Will I need to tear down my existing gutters?
    Gutter Helmet is designed to be mounted onto your existing gutters. Any contractor who insists on replacing your gutters before installing Gutter Helmet should not be trusted. That said, most Gutter Helmet installers have the capability to perform a gutter replacement if your home does in fact need new gutters.
  6. Will Gutter Helmet void my roof warranty?
    There is no reason why installing Gutter Helmet will have any effect on your roof warranty. That’s because Gutter Helmet’s installation methods have been painstakingly vetted and approved by all major roofing manufacturers. And since Gutter Helmet is only installed by contractors who are thoroughly trained on the product, the integrity of your roof will be safe in the hands of a Gutter Helmet-certified installer.
  7. What’s the warranty on Gutter Helmet?
    The Gutter Helmet gutter protection system is warrantied for life. Should any repairs or adjustments need to be made, your Gutter Helmet installer should take care of it. That’s why Gutter Helmet can make the claim that “you’ll never have to clean your gutters again!”

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.
