Website quite slick in its presentation

My gut feeling about the product is that over time debris clogs the screens that covers the gutter - thus preventing ANY water from getting in gutter - thus never having a problem of it overflowing - as it never collects anything.
Any filter that will eventually clog period - without replacement or cleaning in my opinion. So you will be stuck with a clogged gutter for different reasons. I realize the guarantee says they will fix it, but that requires they still be in business - which is always questionable. And the nightmare of getting them back out to do it. My guess - you could pay a service company to clean your gutters twice a year for 10 years - and it would STILL cost less than having a gutter guard installed.

You are most welcome!!

Over the years I have seen everything from gutter helmets to wire mesh. Oak tassels were the nasty at moms house. At mine at present it's pine needles and maple pods. My favorite tool to clean them out is a leaf blower. Granted I climb on the roof and walk the edge. But it's just less messy to me vs water. Seems to me I saw an attachment for a leaf blower that allows you to do this from the ground. Now gas powered ones are nice, but mines just a detachable one from my rigid shop vacuum.
YMMV

Trimming limbs. You can get a pole saw that will do this. I have one that extends to 18 feet. If you are comfortable standing on your roof ( not much pitch) you could do them from there assuming the limbs are not too big. Large limbs should be taken off by someone who does this professionally. Being clubbed to death with a falling limb, or a hole in the roof is not worth the savings!

Tim, Thanks for starting this thread, it is very helpful. For me, there is nothing so reassuring as having a man in my house who cares for me fixing my house. I'm just saying.... embarassed

Oh, and CM women, Tim is single.

Thank you Margo. I just saw a need and went for it. I always enjoyed my DYI honey do list. Especially if tools are involved. Lol

Thanks, too for starting this thread Tim. My problem relates more with having to re-hook up my dvd combo vcr player w/ my stereo & t.v. setup. My brother (who lives about a block away) must be getting tired of the "little sister" favors & so a few months back, the only way he'd even look at my dvd player was if I unhooked it & brought it over to his house. The problem needing urgent attention was a stuck dvd in the player & I needed to return it without Redbox charging me more fees. So, being busy w/ full-time work & part-time school, makes life challenging at figuring this out again. It also means digging up the old instruction books that came w/ the electronics & that can be a "pain" to find, too right?
...anything on Youtube that could help me (if my brother has lost the grace to help his little sister)?
