We currently have those 2 ft long white plastic gutter covers that
clip to the edges of the gutters and slide under the shingle with
perforated holes in them (purchased at Home Depot). They're very
effective in keeping leaves and branches out of the gutters but do
nothing to keep dirt/mud from piling up inside the gutter.
Consequently, the gutters now need to be cleaned out to get all the
mud/crud that's built up over the past 2-3 years. Normally, I
wouldn't think it's a big deal to clean them every 2-3 years but the
way our house is built, it's a major PITA to get up on the roof and
I've seen all kinds of gutter covers advertised that tout that they're
the best/affordable however before I put down any money on any
particular system, I thought I ask if anyone here has had any good/bad
experiences with any particular type of system and also if anyone
has any recommendations on a good cover to install.
