Is fitting gutter grids or gutter hedgehog really worth it?


Ok so you're fed up with going up a ladder to clear the leaves out your guttering, or you're fed up with paying someone to do it. What are the alternatives and do they really work?


Let's get one thing clear, whatever method or device you use your gutters will still need clearing from time to time. The only way to ensure nothing ever got in your gutters would be to completely seal them off, which is obviously impractical as the water from your roof needs to drain into them. So if we need to allow the water to get in, you can be sure other debris will find a way in too.


Some of the larger leaves that land in your gutters might be blown away again by the wind, but small particles of soil, leaves, moss and twigs will still find their way in there.









This is a photo of a job we did recently where a customer had fitted gutter grids around a year ago. As you can see they were certainly in need of some attention!





Another point to consider is the extra time it would take to remove and then re fit the grids. If you were paying someone to do the job the chances are there would be an extra charge for labour.







So it's important to remember the fitting of such devices will only reduce maintenance, rather than removing the need for it altogether.
