This wiki has been updated 7 times since it was first published in November of 2018. Gutter covers might seem like a luxury item to new homeowners -- until the first time they perch themselves atop a ladder and try to dig out the surprising amount of gunk that can accumulate in a year. The right guards can save you countless hours in both the spring and fall, plus they protect the value of your home by keeping the rain flowing through them and away from your foundation. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best gutter cover on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

November 28, 2018:

Realizing not everyone has the same handyman abilities, we strove to include a variety of installation options, even though the simplest choices may not offer the same level of protection.
