diy-gutter-protection-fail-04There are a plethora of DIY gutter guard products available at your local home improvement store. They range from chicken wire mesh to plastic shields. Homeowners typically try these products as a potential solution because of their low cost.

  • All DIY gutter guard products have openings that do not protect your gutters against pine needles and other small debris.
  • Most DIY products violate your roof when installed. Consequently, your roofer cannot guarantee their work if another company has altered their installation.
