Gutter shields are increasingly becoming all the rage among homeowners as the home maintenance accessory of choice. Part of this is due to a wild misconception that many people have about these shields. This misconception is that once you have installed one you will never have to clean your gutters again. While it is true that you can have certain types of gutter shields that will provide a dramatic decrease in gutter maintenance, there is still a need to perform periodic maintenance.
Choosing among the different possible gutter shields can be a tad confusing. After all, one shield can often look like another, particularly when you keep in mind what the main purpose is. Use these guidelines to help you choose a shield for your gutters, or whether you even need one at all.
