I have written a review on yellowpages.com, and I would like to repeat it here since I really do not want anyone to waste their money with Gutter Helmet of Long Island. Here is my experience:

I have just talked to the owner of this company. I am not sure where to begin from. We recently bought a house with Gutter Helmet installed. The installation took place in 2005. After a moderate rain, we got water in the basement. After checking the gutters, I noticed that one side is clogged with leaves and debris. Helmet extends over the gutter, so there is no practical way to take the debris out.

I called the company on June 8, 2013, and scheduled a service. I was told that "as soon as somebody is available, we will call you back." After about a week, I called again. They said that they are 15 days behind the schedule because of heavy rain (which they should have told me in the first call, so I could plan accordingly). On July 1st, I called them again. The answer is the same, "we are doing the best we can". After insisting on the phone to learn when they will be available to fix, I get the answer "three weeks from today." So I schedule service on June 8, and I am likely to get somebody at the end of July.

Who needs a warranty service like this, even though it is supposedly free?

The owner says they have 5 contractors working. She claims it has been raining, even though IT DID NOT RAIN AT ALL in the past two weeks. When I indicate that, then she claims the temperature was 100 F, even though it did not exceed 87 F. And obviously, the temperature is not the highest all day long.

Let me also tell you what I think about their product. They claim that you "never need to clean your gutter again." As you can tell from how busy they are to clean their customers' gutters, that claim is simply not true. In a region like Northeast where pollen and leaves are abundant including pine trees, this system simply does not work. What makes everything worse is that once clogged, you cannot simply clean your gutter because it is covered. What is terrible is that the local Gutter Helmet company is likely to schedule a service after approximately 2 months you call them.

If you are ever considering to get Gutter Helmet installed, just DO NOT DO IT. It is WAY easier to just simply clean your gutters if clogged. There are all kinds of tools for you to access from the ground, if you are afraid of a ladder. I will probably remove it and clean the gutters. Thankfully, I was not the one who paid them loads of money for installation.

You SHOULD NOT pay a lot of money and then wait for them to clean your gutters for two months. Debris WILL go into your gutter even though there is helmet because of pine trees and pollen in this region. Maybe this will work in Arizona, where you would not need it anyway.

To conclude, if you do not want to waste your money, STAY AWAY from Gutter Helmet and Gutter Helmet of Long Island!

The company itself is good. The job they did was fine. Prices are a bit high for the gutter system. But I hate the gutters. Actually, in the summer they work well, but in winter when we have heavy snow and cold, the melting snow forms major icicles when it refreezes at night and those things are way dangerous. Then they melt and I have a huge mess right on my walkway. Needless to say, I removed them for this year.
