“It was a great experience.”

“Great company, easy to work with, and did exactly what they said they would do when they said they would do it. Couldn't ask for anything more.”

“Gutter Helmet is a five-star product. I will never have to clean my gutters again. Genius!”

“Gutter Helmet is a wonderful system that effectively keeps leaves, pine needles, and 'helicopters' from clogging the gutters. I've had mine since May and it's been wonderful not having to clean white pine needles out of the garage gutters and paulownia and maple leaves and 'helicopters' out of the house gutters. Well worth the money!”

“Gutter Helmet Systems provided excellent service and were very professional!”

“I cannot review on anything except that I was happy to have installations done. So I have not seen anything negative about the gutter system. As for the performance, I have to say I don't have any leaks anywhere that I am aware of, but also I don't get up on the roof to look around either.”

“The installation has been excellent, and I have no complaints.”

“This is our first autumn with the new gutters. We have a lot of trees, so we'll see how it goes.”

“Very happy so far. Will see how well it works as fall leaves begin to fall. As I am sure it will work fine, that's why I got it to begin with.”

“We're very happy. Hope the winter goes well.”

“We really like how well our Gutter Helmet system works. It comes with a lifetime guarantee, which makes it worth the price. We really love that it looks really nice. It's not really noticeable. It just complements our house beautifully.”

“They took care of missing gutters and installed the Helmet system in one day. We have a large number of tall trees and heavy rain at times. It was well worth the investment.”

“Everyone was professional. Totally changed the appearance of my home. Would recommend to others.”

“They were very professional in all they performed. A few months later we had some areas in the gutters that were clogged, and they came out and cleared the system. We live in a wooded area of mostly oak trees and they produce a lot of problems to the gutters that need to be cleared in the fall and spring. So far, they have been supportive.”

“Gutter Helmet did an excellent job. They did gutter work. My experience with them was very good—no negatives. They followed the schedule. The quality of work was very good. I'd give them an A+. I'd recommend them.”

“They installed gutter helmets. The quality of work, customer service, and responsiveness—five thumbs up. They're an A+ company.”

“I absolutely had a positive experience. The product and installation are great. I had prior experience with Gutter Helmet many years ago, and I have always been very pleased. I would grade them as an A+.”

“I had a very positive experience. It was fantastic, and I would use them again. They did two gutter systems, and they worked. I loved it. I'd give them an A, and I'd definitely recommend them.”

“Gutter Helmet described what they were going to do, and they did it. It was done very quickly and was exactly what I expected. They did a replacement gutter, and they put covers on the rest of them. I'd give them the best, an A+.”

“I liked the quality of the work. They installed covers on the gutter. I'd give them an A. It's highly likely that I'll recommend them.”

“They put gutter helmets on our home. They came on time and cleaned up well. We had some questions, and they came back and looked at everything and made sure everything was OK, so good follow-up. I'd give them an A+. As far as I know, there weren't any problems. We'd recommend them, and actually have recommend them to our neighbor.”

“They installed the gutter helmet on my gutters, front and back. I'd grade them an A+.”

“My experience with them was very positive. They put on gutter guards. We had gutter guards previously that didn't do the trick. Gutter Helmet replaced those guards with their product and now it seems to be working fine. They're A+.”

“They installed the gutter helmets. They deserve an A+.”

“They were professional enough. I have no complaints on the work or anything. They did the gutters. I'd give them an A.”

“They got in here when they said they would and got it done, and they left the job place clean. They did gutter helmets, which is a cover that goes over the existing gutters, and they cleaned out the gutters as well. I'd give them an A. I already have recommended them.”

“They were very professional. They did gutter installation. They get an A from me.”

“They did the work and did a good job. They did gutter installation. I'd give them an A rating.”

“They did what they said they were going to do, and the product worked. They did gutter covers for me. I'd give them an A.”

“Nothing stands out to us. They scheduled correctly and showed up when they said they were going to be here. They did the job, and there were no issues. They were doing gutter work for us. I'd give them an A. I have no reason not to recommend them.”

“I'm pleased. They're very quick, efficient, and everything was fine. We've had some really heavy rains, and it works like they said it was going to work. I'd give them all A's. I don't have any problems with anything that was done.”

“They came, got the job done, and left. They did the whole thing—gutter covers and gutter installation. I'd give them an A.”

“They did what they said they were going to do. The gutters work the way they're supposed to, and everything runs well. They get an A from me.”

“Nothing stood out. They did exactly what I had asked, and they did it quickly. They did gutter work. I'd give them an A rating.”

“Our experience was very much a positive one. I think we kept the old gutters, but they did the covers. I'd grade them an A.”

“They put in the gutter helmet and the gutter covers. I'd say they get an A-.”

“They did gutter helmets. I'd say they get an A.”

“We're very happy with Gutter Helmet. They did what they said they were going to do throughout the process. They showed up on time, and the person installing it was courteous. We're not having any issues with the product. They told us that any time we have any concerns, someone will come out and look at it. We had gutter helmets put on. I chose them over a different company because my parents had used Gutter Helmet maybe 20 years ago, and they haven't had any issues for that long. We figured that would be a good recommendation. I'd give them an A.”

“They were very professional, and they did a very good job for what we wanted done. They actually had to partially repair the gutters. We had them put on because we had ice that melted in the places it shouldn't have. I'd rate them as an A.”

“I liked that they were clean. They went in there and got it done. They installed gutter helmets for me, and I have had no issues with the work. They deserve an A.”

“I like that the product works. The customer service was good. They had a good crew out here, but the bottom line is that it works. They installed gutter helmets on my house. We liked the way they looked, so we tried them out. We got them with the hopes that they would work well, and they have. I'd give Gutter Helmet an A.”

“It keeps my gutters clear and keeps stuff from getting in them. That's all they did—they put on gutter helmets. I just wanted to change so I wouldn't have to get up on the roof. I would give them an A.”

“Gutter Helmet stands behind its product. I've had gutter helmets for a long time, and when I added it, they made sure it was right. I haven't had any issues with their work, and I have recommended them to others. I'd grade them as an A.”

“I like that the gutters work, as far as I know. They haven't fallen down, and I haven't had any problems with them since they put them up. I knew Gutter Helmet's name. They were recommended to me by a contractor that was putting a new roof on my house, and I knew I wanted to go with them. I would recommend them with an A grade.”

“They did a very nice job. We had a roof added over our deck, and they added the gutters to that roof. The technicians were very knowledgeable and very efficient. I would grade them very highly—I'd give them an A.”

“I thought they did a good job, and I was very pleased with them. I thought they were very fast. So far, the gutters are doing fine, and they cleaned up well. I'd give it an A+—I thought they did a great job. I was very impressed with the two gentlemen. They did a very nice job for me, and I was very pleased.”

“They were efficient, they were quick, and they were clean. They installed a new system. They did an excellent job. The cleanup was very good—they left nothing. They were an A.”

“They did what they said they were going to do, and they cleaned up. I'd recommend them to anybody who wants a good gutter system. I called three different people up, and when they came out, I was the most satisfied with their guard. I'd give them the best grade there is—I'd give them an A+.”

“They were wonderful. They put helmets on our gutters. I liked the technicians. I would recommend them to everyone—I'd give them an A+.”

“The work they did was wonderful, and I'm very pleased with the product—I would recommend it to anybody. I'd give them an A+.”

“Their work is fine. I haven't had any problems. The gutters are already installed, and the work is holding up fine. They completed the job in a reasonable amount of time. I would use this company again—I went with them because I heard it was a good company, and I would recommend them. I would rate them excellent.”

“I loved Gutter Helmet. When we decided to purchase their product, we were very specific about what we wanted, and they did everything we asked them to do. They told us what they were going to do, and they did good quality work. I'd give them an A+.”

“Gutter Helmet did work for us. The quality of their work was excellent. I would give them an A rating.”

“I liked the Gutter Helmet company—they've done a fantastic job for me.”

“We like the product so far, and the salesman was really nice. It was OK. The one issue we had when they came to install it was that the color wasn't right, but they were great—they stopped what they were doing and gave us the right color a week later, so it was fine. I used them because we looked at them and at one other product, and we really liked this product better. The workers were very nice. When I saw the color and was upset, they said, 'Relax, don't worry—we're going to stop right now, take down the piece we put up, and work this out over the next week.' They were really very reassuring and very nice. It was very nice. The cleanup was perfect with no problems—I had no issue with it. They handled the color thing really well, they did the job, and the product's good, with no issues at all. It's fine—it's all good. It was an A+ job.”

“They were excellent. I didn't even realize they had come because everything was so neat and clean by the time they left. I have already recommended them, and I would definitely give them an A.”

“They put up gutters and downspouts—I have a big roof, and what was on there was inadequate, so they put the largest size on, and that has helped tremendously. When I had an issue, they came back; it took two times, but they fixed the corner. Other than that, I've been very, very pleased. They were an A+. They cleaned up after themselves very nicely for the installation part, and the man who came out the second time was very patient—I appreciated that.”

“We had a few little issues, which they promptly took care of, and so far, we're pretty pleased with their work. They installed their product around the perimeter of our house and repaired a few issues with the existing gutters, which they corrected right away. I'd like to see what this product does for the next couple years, but as far as we know, we were pleased with it. I'd give them an A.”

“They were fine. The work was good and the technicians were very helpful, and everything is holding up so far. I'd give them an A rating.”

“Our service was very good. They showed up when they were supposed to, they installed the product when they were supposed to, and they checked afterward when it rained to see that the system was working properly. I didn't interact with the staff; my husband did, but he was pleased. I would recommend them—they earned an A.”

“So far, Gutter Helmet's system has worked OK. I don't have to clean my gutters anymore. The technicians were very efficient, and they cleaned up. They were good—they were excellent.”

“They did a really good job; it's all working so far. They did gutters for me. The quality of their work was excellent, and everything has held up fine. The technician was excellent as well. We chose them because we had recommendations from other people. I would rate them as an A, and I would use their business again. I was very pleased with their work.”

“I had water gushing out of my awning, and I needed my gutter fixed up above on the house. I am so glad I went to Gutter Helmet, because I don't have to worry about debris in my gutters anymore, and I'm not depending on somebody to clean them out. I am real happy with it. The quality of the work they did is excellent, and everything has held up good, so far. I'd use them again, and I recommend them to anybody that needs that kind of work. I feel very good about the technicians, too. I would give them an A.”

“Gutter Helmet was excellent, and we're very pleased with the job they did. They add covers on one side of the house, and they replaced the front. The products are draining properly. They arrived, they did everything they said they were going to do, and they were timely. The only issue was that it was delayed getting started because they have so many other jobs, but it wasn't a problem—we were just anxious to get it done. The technicians were very efficient—they cleaned up and didn't make a mess. We've been very pleased with the results, and we haven't had any problems at all. It was an A job.”

“I thought Gutter Helmet was good. They did what they said they were going to do when they said they were going to do it. The technician was excellent. He was competent, knowledgeable, friendly, and hardworking. I still have a few questions, but everything has held up good since they came out. They finished the work in a reasonable amount of time, and they cleaned up after themselves. They get an A-.”

“We really haven't had all that much rain in the last several months to test the system, but I haven't had any difficulties. They did a little bit of adjustment on my gutters and then put their product on top. I had a major problem with leaves and pine needles getting into my gutters before, and so far, I haven't had any difficulty, so I've been impressed. I haven't had any leaks. I would use this company again—they did the work when they were supposed to, and they did what they said they were going to do, so I didn't have any difficulty with them. They work efficiently, and they really didn't say much. They did the work, they finished, and everything seems to be working out all right. I found about them because they worked on one of my neighbor's houses, and he seemed to be happy with what was going on, so I asked if they wanted my job, and they said, 'Yes.' They took care of it. I was very happy with their work. They did what they were supposed to do when they were supposed to do it, and it was a very simple operation. I would give them an A-.”

“They installed my gutters. I'd give them pluses all around—in fact, I recommended my neighbor to them. I didn't even know they were here. We had prearranged a day for them, and I forgot about it, but they were here and done by the time we got back here a couple of days later. They were in and out and we didn't even know it, and when I called them, they man said, 'We're finished!' I would definitely use them again, and I would give top scores—they're A+. We had a torrential rain for three or four days, and water never came over the edge; it was directed right through the gutters, and I was so pleased with that.”

“I was satisfied with their product, and I would use them again. I didn't even see them—they came, did the work, and left. I would give them an A+.”

“They had good customer service and good follow-up, and they cleaned up behind themselves. I would use them again. They get an A+.”

“They did their work for the price they quoted, they did it professionally, and it completely worked the first time. I have no issues with it. I'd give them an A+.”

“They put gutters all the way around my house. Everything was great. I liked the way that everything was put on, and the next time that it poured, I didn't have water running down my steps and flooding my basement. I have not seen a leaf or stick, even with the freezing cold weather—I had some icicles hanging off, but I didn't have any problems with my gutters. I'd recommend them to anybody—I've already recommend them to someone across the street, and she had work done, too. I have no complaints, and I would give them an A+.”

“I would use Gutter Helmet again. I had no communication problems with the crew. Since they came out, everything has been fine. I'd give them A+.”

“It seems to be a successful product. I would use them again. I didn't have any problems communicating with the people who came out, and so far, it's been good. I'd rate their work an A+.”

“Everything's been fine. I've had some hard rains, and I haven't had any problems. Right now, I just feel very confident that things are being taken care of. I'd give them an A. I don't have any complaints—everything is OK.”

“Gutter Helmet was great. They did all new gutters; the gutters have held up great, and the technicians were very good. I would absolutely use them again if I needed to, and I would recommend them. I would grad them an A+.”

“The fellow did the job was very polite and answered my questions. The salesperson who came in and took the order was also very, very nice and very pleasant. They're definitely an A-grade business.”

“Their work has done exactly what I wanted it to do; the cover doesn't leak, and it takes care of the rain—even the heavy rain—that's been coming in. I'm very satisfied with their work, and I would recommend them. I'd give them an A+.”

“Gutter Helmet was fine—what they did worked well. They put a cover on my gutter. It was my first time using them, and I would use them again. They cleaned up well, too. I would grade them A+.”

“They came before they said they were going to come, and they finished the work in less than one day. I would recommend them—I was very happy with them. I called several contractors, and Gutter Helmet was the first to come out. I would give them an A+.”

“I was satisfied with the finished product. They cleaned up after themselves. I would recommend them, and I'd give them top scores.”

“I thought they did very good. They came out and gave me an estimate for the gutters; then, they came and installed gutter covers. I would recommend them, and I'd give them an A+—it was very good.”

“They did a good job on my gutters, and the gutters didn't clog up during the winter. They were fast, and when I had one problem with a corner that came loose, they were out the next day to fix it. They showed up on time, too. I would recommend them; they are an A+ company.”

“Gutter Helmet did a spectacular job, and the gutters look fantastic. They match the house very well, and I don't have to get on my roof and clean the gutters anymore. I would recommend their service 100 percent, and I'd give them an A+.”

“I loved the work they did for me. They put the gutters in and the downspouts—did it in no time. The cleanup was excellent, and the customer service was very good. I was quite satisfied. I recommended them to a friend of mine. I'd give it an A.”

“They've done an excellent job. They put on new seamless gutters and Gutter Helmet shields. The workers were excellent, and I would recommend that people get them. They've done an excellent job. The craftsmanship was very good, and I'm very satisfied with the work. They were in and out in a day. They came when they said they were going to, and I was just totally satisfied with everything they did. I give them an A+ on everything.”

“My gutters have been tested by the elements, and they did very well. The quality of the work was excellent. They get an A+.”

“The people who installed the Gutter Helmet system did a good job. They installed it for my whole house, and they did a good job. It's made a big difference—I really needed it real bad. I hadn't had the gutters cleaned in a long time, and I wanted it done. The workers were very nice, and they finished the work in a reasonable amount of time. I would say they were excellent—A+.”

“Gutter Helmet was great. They did gutter covers, and they have held up well. The cleanup was perfect. I would grade them an A+.”

“They did an excellent job. We installed the Gutter Helmet shield around our entire home. I was satisfied with the time frame in which they did the work—I think it took one day. They did a good job. Right now, it doesn't have any problems. I would give them an A+.”

“Gutter Helmet put up the gutter shields on the front and back of the house. This is the first time I've used their services and product, and the product is very high quality. I would give them an A+.”

“Gutter Helmet did some work for me before, and they did an excellent job. The covers are absolutely keeping the leaves out—it's been tested by the environment. It's rained quite a bit, and the problem I had was completely fixed. I think maybe two people came out to install that for me, and they explained what they were going to do and how long it was going to take before they started. I looked at it before they left, and they showed me what they had done. I would give Gutter Helmet an A+.”

“It was great—they were perfect. I want to say it was the end of May when they came out to give me an estimate and do a presentation of the product, and then it was probably about a month and a half later when we got on the schedule and gave them a deposit. They showed up exactly when they said they would, and the work was done in a day. Everything was perfect. They did a great job. This was the first time I used them, and I would absolutely use them again. They're A+.”

“It was all excellent. They came on time, and they did the job quickly. I haven't had any trouble since. The leaves haven't fallen yet, but they guarantee it. I just thought it was an excellent thing, and I wish I had done it years ago. It's A+.”

“They put up new guttering, and they were excellent. We had no problems with them. They cleaned up afterward, and they were very courteous and polite, so we're very pleased. This was the first time using them, and I would use them again in the future. We'll go with an A+.”

“They put gutter guards on the existing gutters for the whole house. I heard about them through a friend. Gutter Helmet came out, and they were right on time and efficient. They did a very high-quality job. They finished the work in a reasonable amount of time, and the quality of the work was very good. Everything's held up just fine—no problems. They just came out, took care of it, and when I got home, it was done. Everything was like it's never been touched except for the gutters. Their grade would be A+.”
