Did you know there is an entire day dedicated to DIY projects? Now, we’re all for being your own handyman around your home, but there is a certain benefit to having a professional do work for you, namely that they are trained in doing the job. When it comes to your gutters, there are certain mistakes professionals won’t make, but you might.

Choosing the Wrong Material

While the cost of the material definitely influences your choosing it or not, certain materials aren’t able to handle certain climates. Thing is, you might not know that on your own. A gutter professional will know exactly what material your gutters should be made of in order to best benefit and protect your home.

Adding More Seams Than Necessary

If you choose less expensive gutters, you could end up using shorter (and more) pieces — giving water the opportunity to leak out of more places. An experienced gutter professional will know how to install your gutters with as few seams as possible to keep your gutters free of cracks or leaks.

Improper Installation

No matter how many DIY videos you watch on YouTube, you still run the risk of not installing your gutter properly. Not only does this waste time, but it could pose a threat to your home. Gutter professionals know how to make sure your placement, pitch, and hanger spacing is exactly right.

Another mistake gutter professionals won’t make — gutter guards. The professionals at Keystone Gutter Helmet know how important gutter guards are for protecting your home and can expertly install them for you at an affordable cost.
