Questions about Gutters

How Often Should You Clean Your Gutters?

To make sure your gutters continue doing their job effectively, you should clean them at least twice a year, or three times a year if your house is surrounded by pine trees. We recommend hiring a professional to clean your gutters, as this task is dangerous without the proper training and equipment. Even better, you should consider investing in Gutter Helmet to eliminate the need for cleaning your gutters completely.

What Are Seamless Gutters and What Are Their Benefits?

Seamless gutters consist of one continuous piece of gutter per home side, an innovative design that reduces the risk of leaks. Huff ‘N Puff offers quality seamless gutters in a wide range of colors to complement your exterior.

We use our SnapLock™ gutter attachment system during gutter installation. This firmly secures your gutters to your roof without penetrating the wooden fascia boards, leaving no chance for water infiltration. Our gutters are significantly more cost-effective in the long run than alternative products; their minimal maintenance requirements and increased effectiveness will spare you the expenses of repairs and premature replacements down the line.

Do I Really Need Gutter Guards?

Gutter maintenance is an essential task to keep your gutters working efficiently. This is a tedious and even dangerous task, however, for the typical untrained homeowner. Gutter guards like Gutter Helmet are self-regulating systems that keep your gutters clean and healthy without you ever having to lift a finger.


Gutter Helmet features a beautiful PermaLife™ finish that resists chalking and fading, and is built with a nose-forward design effectively keeps leaves and debris out of your gutters, allowing the unhindered flow of water. Its textured surface increases surface tension, keeping leaves on its surface until they are blown off by the wind.
