We love using our Gutter Sense tool!
Prior to getting one, my husband was cleaning our gutters the old
way....with a ladder and hand tools. The last time he used
this method, the ladder base skidded out away from the house, while
he was way at the top of it. He held on for dear life, but down he
and the ladder went with a thud onto the wooden deck. He blames
our dog for leaning against it and making it slide. Blue did look
Anyway, one Emergency Room visit for head and body cuts and trauma
from falling hard onto the deck....and we knew there had to be a
better way to clean those pesky pine needles from the gutters!
I found the Gutter Sense tool in a mail order catalog. It looked
well designed, and I liked the fact that no ladder climbing was
involved. So we ordered it. Wow! Works great! Thanks for
making such a great tool! Happy Customers in Bastrop, Texas
Gutter Sense Reviews
day I decided to look at what people were saying on the Internet
about the Gutter Sense tool. There
were a lot of positive comments but a few criticisms that kind of
surprised me. I use the
tool myself and canít imagine a more simple effective means of
maintaining my gutters so it was a bit disconcerting especially when
it was obvious a couple of the critical comments were disingenuous
made by someone trying to push another product.
Of course often more negative reviews get published since
satisfied people generally just take it for granted that they got
something that did what it was supposed to.
Since Gutter Sense is a serious injury preventing tool I felt
I should try to set the record straight.
At this point Iíve sold more than 20,000 Gutter Sense tools.
Early on I got a
few reports of breakage (about 1 in 200). After we added ribbing and
changed to impact modified glass filled Nylon in July of 07, the
incidence of reported breakage has dropped to about 1 in 1000 - 2000
which is pretty remarkable. Better
instructions may have contributed to that.
There is a learning curve Ė it takes a little practice to
get used to navigating the gutter supports, usually a couple of
cleanings and then things speed up.
Iím so used to it I can clean my 75 feet of 1-1/2 story
gutters in about fifteen minutes at a moderate fill level.
Its been at least a year and a half since anyone contacted me
in any way to criticize the tool.
But in the few years the tool has been available Iíve
collected dozens of positive testimonials.
I havenít published them because I respect peopleís
privacy. If you want to
hear some of them I wouldnít mind reading some to you but without
dropping any names. You
can call me during the day at 847-639-1420.
Every tool has its limitations.
So does Gutter Sense. If
you have gutters full of cement-like debris built up for years and
two-foot trees growing out of them using Gutter Sense is going to be
a slow go. For that I
tell people to use a bent metal rod or heavy wire taped to their
pole to loosen it up first. Then
use the Gutter Sense tool to maintain your gutters more frequently
so they donít get that way. An
unusually narrow gutter or one blocked by excessive shingle overhang
can cause access problems for the 2-1/2 inch paddles. For this
you can grind down the forward edge of the paddles to make them
narrower (blows the warranty though).
We offer a 30 day trial period during which customers may
return an undamaged tool for a refund (less shipping).
In the last couple of years Iíve received probably a half
dozen back usually because the customer lacked arm strength, had
unusually narrow gutters or it was given as a gift that the
recipient didnít need or care to use.
To get so few returns I think really says it all for how well
Gutter Sense has performed.

A thank you goes
out to Christina Breda Antoniades and the Washington Post for helping
to spread the word about Gutter Sense with their write-up in the
Sunday Source section on the 23rd of Dec. 2007.
I'm not one to
rest on laurels, always keeping an eye out for ways of improving
Gutter Sense. As a result for July 2007 I'm announcing an
improvement to this nifty device. Gutter Sense just got
tougher. It's now being constructed of a stronger plastic,
impact modified glass filled Nylon that increases the break strength
of the tool by about 1/3. To go with it is a new abrasion
resistant factory lubricated monofilament line (re-lubricate with
any plastic-safe grease as needed to prevent wear).

TESTIMONIAL FROM A HAPPY USER
now and then I get a nice testimonial from a Gutter Sense user and
recently this one came in from John of Forest Grove, OR.
He was kind enough to let me post it.
Hello again! Last
fall we bought two Gutter Sense units and love them. In fact,
we are such a believer in the product, we decided to help one of our
good friends live longer by getting him off of his ladder and gave
him one of our Gutter Sense units. He loves it. He deals
mostly with Fir tree needles and he says it does a pretty good job
at getting most of them out of the gutter. We use ours for Oak
tree leaves and it does an excellent job.
Bob, you have a
great product! I absolutely hate to climb up on ladders, especially
when dealing with a two story house. I can now clean all my
gutters from the ground and in 1/8th of the time than when using a
ladder! With the 500 year old Oak tree in our back yard, the
Gutter Sense is a dream come true in the fall! I would like to
order another unit from you. I have enclosed a check....
Thanks again for
a great product!
