“My front roof slopes. I think they call it a Gabrielle roof. As a result, ice and snow would lay in the gutter and the weight of it would eventually pull the gutter off and damage it. On the 3rd gutter, I decided to let gutter guard replace it and add gutter helmet. When the last ice storm occurred, the ice just rolled right over the gutter. My neighbors even noticed and commented. It also looks very attractive. One of the BEST things I have done for my home. No more ladder climbing either. Love it and highly recommend.”

“Everything was great.”

“The Gutter Helmet System installation was completed on my home in one and a half days. The two installers were very efficient and meticulous on the instillation. I was very pleased with their work and I have had no problems with my new gutters since being installed 1 and 1/2 years ago. I would highly recommend The Gutter Helmet System, another big plus if you do experience any problems the company will promptly repair anything on the system for the life of the product for free.”

“Gutter Helmet was tremendous. I had a problem, they fixed it. Straightforward, honest. My kind of people.”

“It is the best thing I did.”

“I expected the system to work as advertised and it does. The pleasant surprise was that the house is quieter. We have many trees and the squirrel population used my gutters as a thruway. Every morning I would hear the little fellows running down their lane. This has stopped. While they are still here, they seem to spend less time on my roof.”

“I had a very tumultuous experience with Gutter Helmet. I will say that they wanted to make things right, but there were many problems, from dented gutters, to roofing nails in tires of 3 of my vehicles.”

“Gutter Helmet did ten feet of gutter work on our house. The guy that did our estimates was professional. They were quick, and they did the work right away. They earned an A+ overall.”

“It was a very positive experience. They put gutter helmets on. We researched all the products, and they seemed to have the best product. I'd say they get an A.”

“Gutter Helmet put up some new gutters, and they put the helmet on some existing gutters. They were quick and clean, and it was very easy.”

“They've done a good job, and I like their system. All their work was excellent, and I'm likely to recommend them.”

“It was excellent work, and I'm extremely likely to recommend Gutter Helmet.”

“They installed a system that keeps the water from going over the gutter and into, causing a deluge by itself, they put a system in there that's patented. It slows the water down, goes into the gutter. Makes sure it keeps everything leaf free and all that kind of stuff. One of those things I hope to not even think about the rest of my life. I've seen them around forever and ever, got tired of paying somebody to come clean my gutters. I'm not up there to check with it. I let the guy come out and he was even nicer. I bought the product and it's working. It's awesome, it's working, don't come back. A+ Overall.”

“No complaints, they did excellent work on my gutters, extremely likely to recommend them.”

“Across the board excellent work completed, extremely likely to recommend them to someone.”

“It was only one negative. Tiny birds can get in and they make nests in there. I hope when they come out in the beginning in July they can do something about that. Tighten up the tolerances, do something. The initial job they came to do was install the gutter helmet. They were great. The gutter helmet's great. The people did a terrific job as far as I know, I just hope they can tighten up the tolerance. I'd say A overall. Punctuality's an issue, I mean they can't come out for a month when you call. So if I had some kind of leaky gutter or an issue with the house or something, it would be a month before I could see them. At least, that's what this issue was. I have already recommended them to a friend.”

“Gutter Helmet, I installed last year. They're fine. They did excellent work.”

“They installed all their system, all around the house. Love it. I liked everything. Believe it or not, they were quick to the install, they were clean, they were polite, and they didn't mess around. The system itself works. For years and years I had problems with my gutters overflowing, splitting, roof problems. I haven't had a problem with this system since they put it in. A+ overall.”

“They did gutter guards. It was a problem-free installation. In and out, no problems. A+ overall.”

“They did my gutters, covered my gutters. They came on time and they did a really good job. I have no complaints. They did A+ work.”

“I was pleased with them. Everybody tells me how nice it looks. I had gutter helmet make it so that when it rains, the leaves go out in the yard so I never have to clean the rain gutters. Everybody tells me how nice it looks. They were very nice too. I have been very well pleased and everybody that comes around here tells me what a nice job did they did. Gutter Helmet is A+. It didn't take them forever and it looks nice. I would recommend them in a minute.”

“They installed a gutter helmet system. They did the job really quickly.”

“They replaced some gutters that had been damaged by hail. I liked the products.”

“Everything seems to be fine up to this point. They installed the gutter helmet system up on the roof. I liked the simple fact that it blocked the dirt and water from getting into my gutters. They did a good job. Everything across the board, I had no problems with it. Everything's been really good up to this point. I would recommend them.”

“Everything was fine.”

“I just got new gutter helmets last year. We had a gutter helmet put in 20 years ago but it was damaged in the storm. I felt comfortable enough to go with them again.”

“They did this work last year. They did all new gutters and the gutter helmet system. Down south, the whole rain disposal end of it was replaced. They seemed to be honest. Whatever they said they were going to do, they did. They cleaned up when they were done. Everything worked. I didn't have to bring them back which was a plus.”

“They came one time, and they did a very nice job. I'd give them an A.”

“Gutter helmets did some work for me. This experience was positive, although right now I may have a backup in my gutter. The water is coming out where it's not supposed to, so I might have to call them back. I don't know if they have a warranty service to clean gutters. It was the de-installation of the old system and installation of the new system. They were pretty quick and efficient.”

“Not only did they put the gutter helmet on, but they also did new gutters and downspouts. They basically did the whole nine yards—the gutters, downspouts, and gutter helmet. I think they did real well. There was just one slight problem in the way they mounted the downspouts on the gutters themselves. But one trip out by the technician and he corrected in a matter of half an hour and it was all squared away. They look good, they work good. We're satisfied. We have already recommended them to some people.”

“They put their gutter product on my gutters at my new house, and my old house. I've used them twice. I liked the product—the product does what it says it's going to do.”

“They put the system on my house. I don't have to clean my gutters anymore.”

“They did gutter helmets. The service was fine.”

“They just put gutter helmets on, they didn't do any gutter work. They actually fixed something last time, on another part of the house. They did a good job. They were accurate. They just did a good job; they were accurate, they did good work. I'd say A overall. I'm definitely likely to recommend them.”

“They put in gutter guards to keep the leaves out. They were prompt, they were professional, they came in when they said they would, and they got done when they said they would. A, definitely. They were fine.”

“They installed the gutter helmet on the back of the house. I actually didn't have any problem with them, so it was fine. They came in they did what they did and they left. They're an A overall.”

“They covered our gutters with the gutter guard. They were very professional and they did good work. I'd say A overall. We haven't had to deal with customer service because so far everything's good. We've never had to call them back. I would recommend them.”

“Everything went well. They repaired some of the helmets on the second story, which they had previously installed them all on the first floor in the lower units. It works well for our application. They get an A overall.”

“We got all new gutters, all new everything. I've seen the end result and they seem to be working. I've no complaints right now. They did the gutters on the house, and right now everything's working. No issues with the gutters yet.”

“All their work was excellent with no complaints with the gutter caps and we're likely to recommend them. So far, it's very great. But one thing I was disappointed in—I asked them to call me when before they came out, and they didn't. They came out without calling me. I wasn't happy about that. Luckily, I came back early and I caught them when I was there, because I had questions I wanted to ask them.”

“They put gutter helmets on my house, except for like one little gutter in the front of the house they didn't put it on. I like the design. I would say an A overall.”

“They did gutter helmets. I like that there's no more clogged gutters. A overall.”

“It was fine. They did gutter helmets.”

“I had a great experience.”

“My experience was positive.”

“What I recall is that there was an issue with our ply board so we had to get that replaced for them to install it. I remember them being flexible and our system is working better than it was, so we haven't had complaints to speak of yet. The guys could've been wearing a uniform. That kind of thing. Likely to recommend them if I had someone I know and I remembered.”

“They installed two sections of gutter helmet on the roof. They were fine. There was no problem. They did everything one time. They did fine.”

“We have Gutter Helmet. We were very impressed with the salesman and his demonstrations of their product. We had checked out several different types of gutter helmets, and we decided that with the lifetime finish, we wouldn't have to worry about replacing them during our lifetime. We did have a problem with the installation—I'm not sure that it was their error or the way that our roof is configured—but they came back twice, and the second time was the charm. We called them about the issue. You can't tell that there is an issue unless it rains. The initial installation took a couple hours. If I were going to give them a letter grade, I would give them an A.”

“Gutter Helmet did what they said that they were going to do. They showed up the day that they told us, and it works well. I did have them come back once because we had a small issue on one of the corners, but they fixed it. We chose them because my husband did a lot of research, and Gutter Helmet's gutters were the best-quality ones that we wanted. I would grade them with an A on their installation.”

“Gutter Helmet did some work for us, and everything has been OK so far. I haven't had any problems with the gutter helmets since they were installed. They were fast, and they were very efficient. They were good—I have no complaints. I had been looking at them for a long time, and they came out and gave me a quote. We decided to do it. They have been excellent so far.”

“The other company we were using had gutters that looked like the same product that you could buy at Home Depot and install yourself. I did try them one time, but then it clogged. This year, it seemed to me that the Gutter Helmet gutters were sturdier and less likely to clog. They showed me a demonstration, but when you see it rain really hard, you can see it happen. It's remarkable to see the water whip around the actual product itself and into the gutter. The product does what it says it does. Actually, the Gutter Helmet system has really worked this past spring with the issues we've had with the oak trees from my neighbors. We have had no clogging of the gutters this spring, so the product has really done what it was meant to. I really liked that we weren't pressured for sales. They came out and explained everything, they gave us some time to think about it, and they scheduled the installation on our terms and our time. They had a good sales rep who explained the product really well—they answered all of my questions. It was a good experience. I would recommend them to other people, and I would definitely give them an A+.”

“Gutter Helmet did an installation for us last year. It was definitely a positive experience. I used to get water in my basement, and since they installed the gutters on our house and garage out here, I don't get water in my basement. I chose them because my son-in-law had had them. I just got good service from Gutter Helmet—they're an A+.”

“I got gutter helmets from them. I would rate them A+.”

“Gutter Helmet just did some work for us this week. They cleaned out all of the gutters and did the front one. It took them just a few hours. They were very nice. I liked that they did what I wanted—they actually did a little more than I had anticipated—and it turned out great. They did installations for me before. They took down the old gutters and put up the new ones. I think they're A-rate.”

“Gutter Helmet did an installation for us. The customer service was fine. I used them because of a referral. The installation took a day. I would give them an A.”

“We already have Gutter Helmet. So far, I have had a positive experience—they did an installation, and nothing has gone wrong. I chose the company because other people in the neighborhood had them. I would definitely say they're an A-grade company.”

“Gutter Helmet did some work for me—so far, so good. I liked that they did the job on time, and it seems like it is working. I have had to call them back out—I'll be honest, I think it was an issue with the installation—but it wasn't major, and they did come back out the next day. So far, it's been A-grade service.”

“Gutter Helmet installed gutters for us for about three hours. Their installation was very professional, and they were easy to work with, both during the order process and the installation. I chose them because I have had two other houses with their product on them, so I was familiar with them and very happy with the way they were. They get an A from me.”

“Gutter Helmet did the job, and the system seems to work. I haven't had to call them back out for anything. I didn't really deal with them directly, but the overall experience was positive. I would give them an A.”

“I had a good experience with Gutter Helmet. The product works like it is supposed to do as far as I know. I haven't had to call them back out since the initial installation. Their customer service was good. They came when they said they were going to, and they did what they said that they were going to do. They earned an A grade.”

“Gutter Helmet did some work for me. I had some issues with some leaves getting stuck in the gutters. Well, not even leaves, I should say. It was a bird's nest. They removed the bird nest, and the water is flowing down now. It's all good. They had done an installation about 18 months ago, and they came out for a repair. If I had to give them a letter grade, it'd be an A.”

“I liked that Gutter Helmet called me right back. They showed up while I was at work, and they took care of everything that needed to be taken care of. They installed the system for us, and I haven't had to call them back at all. I would probably say they deserve an A—I would recommend them to somebody else.”

“Gutter Helmet did some work for us about a year ago, and I'd call it a positive experience because we don't have the problem that we were having. They haven't had to come back, but I am waiting for the next heavy rainfall to see what happens. I'd call them an A-grade service.”

“I had a good experience with Gutter Helmet—I liked everything. All I know is that they work well, and I like it. They installed gutter guards for me. The company doesn't clean the tops of the gutter helmets—the pollen off of my honey locust stuck on to the top and nothing was draining over, so I had to clean that out myself—but other than that, it is fine. I chose to have the gutter guards installed because I was tired of doing my own cleaning out. They're A-rate.”

“Gutter Helmet took care of a problem that I wasn't able to solve myself. They came out and put their gutter helmet system on gutters that were more than 30 feet off the ground on my house. I would give Gutter Helmet an A.”

“I used Gutter Helmet, and I haven't had any of the problems with my gutters that I used to have. These guys did a good job. They covered my gutters with their product. They were quick, and there was really nothing to it. They get an A in our book.”

“Gutter Helmet did some work for me. Overall, I'd say they made it a positive experience. The product that they provided did what they said it would, so that is the main thing. I chose them because it seemed that their product was going to be better. When they installed the product, their customer service was very good. The people were pleasant and quick, and they seemed to know what they were doing. It's an A from us.”

“When Gutter Helmet did an install system for me, I had a few problems, and they came back and fixed it. A bird had gotten in the gutter and built a nest, and they opened it up, took the bird out, and closed it back up again. The lady in the office here in Philadelphia was fantastic. I would give them an A for their service.”

“They installed gutter helmets, and they were great. I liked that they were on time, that they did a good job, and that the product works very well. My sister recommended them. I would give Gutter Helmet an A.”

“I've had Gutter Helmet before. They did gutter helmet installation when I first moved into the house, but then 15 years later, I got hail damage, and I had to have it done over. Both times, they were very good about their work habits. They were prompt, and they did a nice job. I would recommend them to others based on the A-grade service that I had.”

“Gutter Helmet installed gutter helmets for me. I chose them because I'd had their product previously. They were very efficient, and they did a very good job. I didn't have any issues with that work. I would give them an A for their service.”

“I like the product, and it has all worked. I chose Gutter Helmet because of their technology. They installed gutter helmets, and my overall experience has been very positive. I would recommend them with an A grade.”

“I've already recommended Gutter Helmet. When they installed gutter helmets for me, I liked that they were prompt, they came when they said that they would, and they worked quickly. Overall, I'd grade them A.”

“Gutter Helmet was great. I liked that it was quick, and we haven't had any problems with them. They put gutter helmets in for me. I thought that they had a good system, and I haven't had any issues so far, so I would give them an A.”

“Gutter Helmet came recommended to me by people at work who had similar systems installed, so I had them do some work for my stepmom. They installed gutter helmets for her, and it appears that they work. I wasn't there for the installation, but everything seemed to have gone well. I'd call them an A-rate company.”

“I had a positive experience with Gutter Helmet. I liked that they did the job that they said that they were going to do, and so far, I haven't had any problems with my gutters—that is a plus. They put a cap on my gutters so that I don't have any problems with leaves and things falling into them. I chose Gutter Helmet because my neighbor had used them and was very satisfied. I would say that their service earned them an A.”

“Gutter Helmet did a good job. They did a new gutter installation and replaced a section of my gutters. They were just fast. They came in, they did their job, and they left. It looks nice. I mean, they are just gutters—I don't know how much customer service they are supposed to give—but they put in the gutters and they were gone. The gentleman that came out seemed to be a man of his word, so I decided to go with him. I would give them an A.”

“Gutter Helmet did an installation for me. I thought that they were very good. There was enough communication—not too much, just enough. I thought that they did fine. The job was supposed to be one day, but they couldn't finish it for some reason, and so they came back the next day and finished it. It wasn't a problem. I'd call them A-grade overall.”

“Gutter Helmet did some work for us about a year ago or maybe more. I was sick of the leaves getting into my gutters, and when the guy showed up and explained the system to me, he ran the system. He was smart, and he got out of there faster than I ever thought. They installed their system, and they haven't had to come back since. It was quick and easy. It took one day. I happened to have half the money to put down up front. I gave him the other half when he was done. Then, boom, it was done. I would give them an A for their excellent work.”

“Gutter Helmet did work for me, and I liked that the two fellows were both very neat, clean, and mannerly. They did very wonderful work. The installation was done in one shot, and it works marvelously. They get an A for their excellent work.”

“Gutter Helmet did a beautiful job—I love my gutter guard. They really did a great job. I gave them five stars. I liked that they were friendly and hardworking. I'd give them an A+.”

“I had a great experience. The installation was fast, efficient, and clean—it took about four hours. Gutter Helmet is the only company we have ever used. It's a top-notch company—A.”

“Gutter Helmet was friendly and efficient. They came when they said that they were going to come, and it was done very quickly. They came out and explained it very nicely. They installed gutter helmets for us.”

“It looks wonderful. They were very neat, they came when they were supposed to, and they were very nice. I was delighted with it. I have two large trees out front, and I was spending a fortune getting the gutters cleaned all the time because it would spill over due to all the leaves. When I saw Gutter Helmet, I said, 'Well, that's probably going to be my answer.' It works; I don't have the spilling anymore with the gutter or anything like that. I would definitely give it an A, and I have to tell you, the salesman is very good. He explained everything about it. He was very good at showing me what it would look like and how it would work, so I'm very pleased with it.”

“I just was very pleased with them. When I called, they were here right away, and there weren't any problems. I didn't have to keep hounding them for anything. I really didn't have any problems with them—nothing at all. Those little whirlybirds from maple trees were coming down, and they were growing in our gutter. We kept getting them out all the time. When I saw Gutter Helmet's ad, I called them, they came, and they did the work. They took care of the problems that we had with birds building nests in our gutters. I was extremely pleased, so I would give them an A+.”

“We were having a water problem in our family room; the gutters were responsible. Gutter Helmet fixed the problem, and they were totally professional. The person that came to show us how it worked was very informative. The guys just came out and did it with no problem at all. I would give them an A+.”

“Gutter Helmet came in, did the estimate, and set up the time. Everything flowed very smoothly, and everybody was professional. They were in and out quickly, and it was done correctly. We were very pleased with it. We had purchased a home and there were a lot of trees behind the house, and it was causing flooding into the house because the gutters did not have caps; they were getting clogged up relatively quickly. The Gutter Helmet resolved the issue. We actually signed up two or three of our neighbors—both of them had the same issues. I'd rate them an A+; they did a great job.”

“They have been wonderful. I have trees around my property, and the gutters were getting filled with leaves. Well, I am not the type of person to climb up a ladder on a two-story house to clean out the gutters, so I had to have someone else come to clean it out. It presented a big problem, and I thought the solution would be to have their gutter guard put on. Gutter Helmet came soon after I called to give me an estimate and to do measuring. They set up to do the work about a week later, and they were very efficient. They were very on time, very clean, and very polite. They get an A+.”

“Water was always leaking and running over the spouts, but the product stopped the leaking from all four of my spouts. After they put the Gutter Helmet on, the problem has been completely corrected. They did a good job. They came as scheduled, they told me approximately how long it would be, and they did the job. Everything was fine, and they explained the situation to me when they left. This was about two years ago. I'd rate them an A+. I would recommend Gutter Helmet to anybody, and I think I have told one of my friends that I had them.”

“They were great. They came and did what they were supposed to do, they did it at the price that they quoted, and the product is working the way they said it would perform; I'm thrilled. What stands out is that they were there when they said they would be there, they did exactly what they said they would do, and it's performing exactly as they said it would perform. It's all pretty good. I have recommended them to other homeowners—more than ten people. I'd give them an A+.”

“I recommended them to my neighbor, who also had work done. The Gutter Helmet works beautifully. I thought it was wonderful—everything was wonderful, including the people. They got it done quickly, and it was enough that my neighbor watched and wanted it done right away. I'd rate them an A+.”

“I'm sorry I didn't go with them years ago. I can't get up there to clean my gutters, and I'm not paying somebody every year to get up and clean my gutters. What stood out was that they did everything as promised. I had no problems, and they did a beautiful job. I would give them an A+. It's just been wonderful.”

“I'd give them an A+. They were professional, and they did it quickly and neatly. I liked the way it looked and the way they did the job. We were so happy with it that we even got them to do our next door neighbor's work. For years, I was cleaning the gutters myself, and it got to be too much of a hassle. I had to get up on the second story and clean out all the leaves from the gutters. Birds were also nesting in there. So, the Gutter Helmet took care of everything.”

“They were very efficient and polite, and we liked the product; we haven't had any problems with it. It's just great. Everything was good—the people that we talked to first about the service, the man that came out and talked to us about the service, and the people that installed. We haven't had any problems with it at all. It was absolutely an A+.”

“We have used Gutter Helmet, and they were good, too. What made them so good is that there were no surprises. When they quote something, that's what you pay. Their reliability and responsiveness stood out.”

“We have Gutter Helmet. They came out and they put this helmet over the gutters. I never have to clean them out or anything like that. It's very good. It still functions the way it is supposed to. The workers are hardworking, and they finish in a reasonable amount of time. I would rate them an A.”

“I went with Gutter Helmet, and it was a positive experience. I had a new gutter guard cap installed because I have a lot of trees. I also had one downspout that had a blockage of ice, and they had to replace that because it looked like it was going to burst. That was very good; I had no problems. They're an A.”

“The work was done the way they said it would be and in a timely manner. It was adequate—I mean, there was nothing bad about it. We had some old gutters that were not holding up properly, so the Gutter Helmets were an improvement on that. It would be an A; there was nothing that was totally outstanding about it, but the work was done fine.”

“They were very good. I liked when the guy came out here and gave us the run through covering what it would do for us. I'm getting older, so I don't have to go up and clean out my gutters anymore. They backed that up with a lifetime warranty. If anything goes wrong with it, they will stand by it. I would recommend them to another homeowner, and I have. I would give them an A.”

“They did a good job. They cleaned up and were sufficient. It was quick and easy, and the product is working, and it's an improvement. We already recommended them to another homeowner. I'd give them an A.”
