So my folks are getting a new room after some hail damage, and to go with the new roof, they are getting some new gutters. My mom let me know that they are getting some gutter covers to keep the leaves from piling up and clogging the gutters. I was really happy to hear this, as the idea of my 60 y/o pops climbing a ladder that my mom is holding steady (their yard has a significant hill) is something that I'm a bit concerned about. If I drive up there in the spring and fall, I try to make sure that I do this task for them before I leave, but that's not always possible. I have never been a home owner, but I wanted to know anything that Sherdog might know about the topic. Do these gutter covers work? Are some better than others? Enlighten me!
