Anybody have some thoughts about the covered gutters that are supposed to keep out leaves. Do they work?

Hi Ernest,

IMO, they aren't worth it. Take the $$$ you'd spend on these gutter-guards and add a few more $$$ to have your trees pruned. THAT is $$$ well spent.

Others may differ but that's my $.02. My best to ya and hope this helps.

I've had the kind of gutter cover that "directs" the water into the gutter and the leaves over the edge - for about 2 years now. So far, so good.
Sometimes pruning the trees is not an option. Pine needles blow onto the roof whenever there's a storm, year round.
