“The process of learning about Gutter Helmet compared to other gutter systems was good, and the installers came as promised. The system has worked well for a year. We live in a very wooded area and cannot get on ladders to clean gutters, so required something that needed no maintenance. This works well for us. Pricey, but worth it at this time in our lives.”

“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.”

“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.”

Review by

“The Gutter Helmet folks replaced my roof, my gutters, and redid the Helmets that I had had installed several years ago. I am very pleased that the roof looks attractive, and the gutters and Helmets are working properly. They had to replace three plywood panels that had weakened—I'm glad they made sure that they were building on a secure foundation. They did an excellent job cleaning up after themselves (though there were a few roofing pieces I found later on the lawn, but I would expect a few would get away). Since mine was an older soffit configuration, there was no venting. They installed breathing vents (‘gills,’ as I call them), to help move air upward out of the top vents of the attic. Overall, I'm very satisfied with the result.”

“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!”

Review by

“Had them come back to adjust leaking gutters, they still leak. Needed a bigger gutter and downspout in one area, and they just installed what was easy, not what I needed. Way overpriced for the result.”

“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.”

Review by
09/28/2017

“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.”

Review by
09/28/2017

“The gutters were installed incorrectly. They continue to leak against the side of the house. Gutter Helmet has come back three times, and they still aren't right. I called a fourth time, and they said they would ‘try to come out in the next six to eight weeks’ but couldn't give me a date let alone time. I explained that I needed to be home to explain where the problem is located. They said they didn't need to know. Worse, I got my neighbors to replace their gutters through Gutter Helmet, and they are having the same issues. They are terrible.”

Review by
06/20/2016

“They didn't discuss all the issues you might have before you purchase the merchandise. Why once you buy and install it then you find out there's going to be a winter problem--which we had a huge ice problem. So really I can't even access to season the crane locks. They installed the helmets. I will not do business with them again, I give them a D. I guess their quality of work and expertise were okay, I'm not sure. I haven't talked to them.”

Review by
06/20/2016

“In the beginning, I didn't have a positive experience. Once I got the technician off of my project, everything was wonderful. They did all brand new gutters on the house, then I had to get some sky light windows replaced, and they did the windows for me as well. I'm going to say they get an A-, and I'm saying A- because that one technician was horrible. Overall, it was a good experience, but him I did not like, and I requested another guy person. They sent me another guy and I really liked him. The first technician I had was horrible. They left some shingles at my home, which was fine. They left it on the side of the house and never said a word about it. Their work was good, but I think they were a little overpriced. In the long run, they do have a warranty, so there's comfort with that, but I think there's someone out there who could be a little cheaper. I'd recommend them.”

Review by
06/20/2016

“They did an excellent job, very good. They did gutter work. My experience with them was very good, no negatives. They made an appointment and followed the schedule. They worked really well, so it was good. The quality of work was very good. I’d give them an A+ rating. I'd recommend somebody to them. ”

Review by
06/20/2016

“The experience was not totally positive, it was neutral. They didn't repair a hole after they'd finished. I went out and checked when it rained and there was a leak in one of my gutters. They were just doing gutter work for me. I'd give them a C.”

Review by
06/20/2016

“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+.”

Review by

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

Review by

“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+.”

Review by
06/09/2016

“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.”

Review by
06/09/2016

“They did a good job. Service-wise, it was pretty quiet. Before I knew it, they did their work and were finished. There was very little interaction, and overall, the product works. They were working on my gutters. I'd probably give them a B+.”

Review by
06/09/2016

“They need to come back and do some remediation work for me, but I haven't had the chance to call them and have them come out. They were doing the gutter helmets thing—they need to fix some of it. I'd give them a B.”

Review by
06/09/2016

“They were very professional, their estimates were good, and they performed what they said they were going to. They did a roof and a gutter system. I'd rate them an A. I had no problems with them.”

Review by
06/09/2016

“I've seen a spot up on the roof where I could get in touch with them and have them nail it down—it's the way that the gutters were put in. I'd give say they’re a B. The quality of work was fine.”

Review by
06/09/2016

“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.”

Review by
06/09/2016

“I had a very positive experience. They delivered when they said they were going to. They did it on time and on budget, so that was fantastic. I would use them again. They did two gutter systems and they worked, and I loved it. I give them an A. I would definitely recommend them. ”

Review by
06/09/2016

“I had a positive experience with them, except, now that I need them to come back, they said they'd be four-to-six weeks. They put gutter helmets on. I guess I'd give them a B. My recommending them depends on how quickly they get out there and fix what I want them to fix.”

Review by
06/09/2016

“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.”

Review by
06/09/2016

“I absolutely had a positive experience. They come when they say they're going to, the product is great, and the installation was great. I've had prior experience with Gutter Helmet, many years ago, and have always been very pleased. They installed new gutter helmets on my home. They get an A+ from me.”

Review by
06/09/2016

“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.”

Review by
06/09/2016

“We've had some problems with my rental home. I have innovative properties that I've been trying for, going on almost a year now, to get a situation cleared up. I've had gutter helmets put on, a whole brand new roof on that house, replaced the one roof in the back, and put the gutter helmets on the house--all this done with Gutter Helmet. And we've had a problem of water leakage where water was pouring down on the side of the house on the back windows, and it bruised the ceiling in the dining room or bedroom because of they positioned the gutter or whatever wrong. I've been very unhappy. There's no response whatsoever from Gutter Helmet. The experience has been very negative. I would give them a D. They still haven't come out. There are spots on the ceiling in the dining room and in the bedroom from this downpour, that something was wrong with the gutter installation. The guys came out two times and the problem was eventually solved, but we sent out a private repair person with an estimate to say Gutter Helmet was requesting an estimate. She sent it to them at least twice she said, and every time she's calling and she's not getting any response and they just want to drop the whole thing. I feel like all they care about is putting it up and then getting out of touch with the money. So I'm not too happy with them. With my house, I'm fine with my house. They did both houses, I had both houses done. They still haven't come out to look, after all the time.”

Review by
06/09/2016

“I would say they get a B. There was a problem, but they came back and fixed it. Their customer service was very good. Whenever we called them, they called us back. The main thing, you couldn’t put the things up if it's raining. We had some bad weather, but that wasn't their fault. Other than that, I would say their customer service was pretty good. We never knew what time they were coming. We thought they were going to be here in the morning, but they didn't say they were going to be here in the morning. They said they had us scheduled, but they didn't show up until late in the day to do the work. We thought it would have been better if they had been able to give us a time closer to when they might have been here. I would say their cleanliness was OK. There was no problem with that. The first people that we had, when we had the problem, they seemed to know what they were doing. Then, the second people that came back, and they were the ones that seemed to know exactly what they needed to do. We didn't have any problems with them. I think their product is a good product. The guy looked at it and everything and we thought they were the best ones.”

Review by
06/09/2016

“The guy who came and put it in was fine. And the gutters seemed to do the job. We do have one problem now, we haven't actually reached out to Gutter Helmet yet. We climbed up on the roof and took some pictures, but it looks like part of the installation didn't seem to go right and now it's like leaking into the roof and coming out to the balcony roof. The service was fine but the quality of work was poor. So I'd give them a C-. The customer service was good. Right now it's not very likely that we'd recommend them. But we haven't given them a chance to fix the problem yet.”

Review by
06/09/2016

“It looks fine, except I noticed one joint on the gutters where two are connected that’s not lying flat on my roof. Since I had that issue, I would give them a B. They were a little late, but that's OK. They give you a window. I didn't see anything laying around on the ground, so I assume they did a good job with cleanliness. I'd probably recommend them, as long as they sort out the problem. I'm assuming they're going to come back.”

Review by
06/09/2016

“It seemed like the work was fine. They didn't come until a month later than they said they were coming, but except for that, everything else was very good. They did gutters for me. I'd probably give them a B+. I couldn't reach them to find out why they weren't coming, so they need a little more work on customer service. Their cleanliness was very good. They cleaned up after themselves. I guess they had the expertise.”

Review by
06/09/2016

“We have a little problem with the gutter helmet. We haven't call them yet, but it's something that's on my to-do list. When we get a heavy rain—there's a portion of the roof that overwhelms the gutter system—we get a lot of water pouring over the gutter helmet, looping underneath the gutter, and splattering on the side of the house. I'd say they were good, with an issue. I’d give them a B. The quality of the work was fairly good, and they were here on time.”

Review by
06/09/2016

“Everything went smoothly. They were doing the covers for the gutters. I'd give them like a B+. I wasn't there so I don't know. They put the thing on there, but I'm not sure if they cleaned the gutters out before they did that. The customer service was fine. It took them a while to get here because they were all backed up. It took them several weeks, almost a month, before they got to me. I wasn't home, so everything was fine when I got here, so I can't complain about cleanliness.”

Review by
06/09/2016

“Someone else had called me soon after the work was done, and I was very pleased. I had roofing done. Before then, I had a gutter done in the front. I'd give them a B for both experiences. The guttering was done on the garage. Their customer service was very good. I think they had to postpone the job twice, I don't know what had happened—I think it was the weather. I would absolutely recommend them.”

Review by
06/09/2016

“The guy that did it was very pleasant and polite. I love the fact that my husband doesn't have to go up on the roof and clean the leaves anymore. They did our gutters. I'm giving them an A. I've had to have them come out here twice because, unfortunately, they get stopped up. They came right out—no problems. I would recommend them, and I have already told a couple of people about it.”

Review by
08/12/2015

“They put on a new roof and replaced our gutter helmets that we already had and everything was fine. We had gutter helmets for years and when we were looking to have our roof done we wanted to keep our coverage for gutter helmets and we went to them. I don’t remember how we first heard about them because we’ve know about them for years. We’ve had them for years. I’d give them an A.”

Review by
08/12/2015

“They did a roof replacement for me, and the team that did the work didn't follow the schedule as they were supposed to, with some delays and other technical—I hope the quality of the work will. I've done a different project a couple years ago through a different server and I was very successful. That was a successful project. It was a gutter helmet installation and it went beautifully from the sales rep to the installation to the quality of the work. I had no complaints so I thought I should try them again. The sales process was pleasant enough to help me figure out decisions but the execution of the work was the problem. I'll give them a C.”

Review by
08/12/2015

“The salesman was the best one and the fact that I’ve had the gutter helmet previously since 2005. I only had one little minor problem with it and that was last year. I called them and they came out and fixed it with no problem at all. Other than that, I’ve never had any problem. They’ve stood behind everything. Then they gave me a really good price on my roof. Everything was fine. I found the company through a mailer I received years ago I think. I’d give them an A. There was just one problem I did have but it wasn’t really Gutter Helmet; it was the contractor who came out. They were supposed to completely finish everything that day but I had left when they were wrapping and when I came back all the stuff was still in the middle of my yard from the chimney and they hadn’t put the gutter helmet on. The guy did call me later that evening and said time got away from them and they had another job way down past Annapolis in Shady Side so they would have it done the next morning, which they did. That was the only thing. Other than that, everything else went well. I would still give them an A.”

Review by
08/12/2015

“We had the gutter helmet installed first for the gutters. Then in the past six or nine months, we had them do a new roof, take down the gutter helmet and put the gutter helmet back on. I found the company through TV, ads and just word of mouth. I’d give them an A.”
