HOW IT WORKS

Our Patented Rain Gutter System

Here at Gutter Helmet®, we’ve worked hard to come up with an innovative product that filters rainwater through your gutter protection system while still keeping the debris and gunk from clogging up your gutters. Our patented system is one of the best gutter protection systems offered to consumers, and works by utilizing the concepts of surface tension and gravity. With a Gutter Helmet system, we guarantee you won’t be spending your weekend cleaning out your gutters.

GutterHelmetAnimation

Our rain gutter system is made of a textured surface, allowing rainwater to cling to the surface as it flows downward. The edge of each of our gutter guard systems is curved and extends past the edge of the gutter to allow rainwater to flow naturally into the gutter system.

Once the rainwater rounds the edge of the Gutter Helmet system, it passes through a slit that is only 3/8” wide, used to stop debris, leaves and other materials from getting into your gutters and clogging your system. While water can pass through the opening at a steady rate, debris is stopped by the small slit, allowing only water to pass through your gutters.

With the ability to handle 22 inches of rain each hour without overflowing, Gutter Helmet® is the best gutter system for any home or commercial building. The highest recorded rain amount in the United States is only eleven inches each hour, proving that Gutter Helmet® has the ability to handle much more than Mother Nature can throw your way.

FILTER OUT TWIGS AND LEAVES

While Gutter Helmet is busy capturing every drop of rain that falls on your roof, it is also rejecting every leaf, twig and bits of debris that come along with the rain. As rain flows around the rounded edge and into the gutter through the small slit, leaves and debris cannot pass through the narrow opening and they continue their downward direction and drop to the ground. Only Gutter Helmet’s patented design is so remarkably successful at keeping gutters clean, day after day, and year after year. No wonder more American homes are protected by Gutter Helmet than any other system.

BENEFITS

It’s more than just not climbing ladders

With Gutter Helmet®, you are protecting your largest investment – your home. Your home is most likely the largest investment you will make. Gutter Helmet gutter protection helps you protect that investment by keeping damaging rain water where it belongs—in the downspouts and away from your house and your landscaping. Water running off of your roof can splash back onto your home, causing flooding, foundation damage, soil erosion, rotting wood and siding damage. In addition to preventing that damage, Gutter Helmet is a beautiful complement to your home, with a sleek design and textured PermaLife™ finish available in your choice of color.

Our rain gutter system is made of a textured surface, allowing rainwater to cling to the surface as it flows downward. The edge of each of our gutter guard systems is curved and extends past the edge of the gutter to allow rainwater to flow naturally into the gutter system.

Once the rainwater rounds the edge of the Gutter Helmet system, it passes through a slit that is only 3/8” wide, used to stop debris, leaves and other materials from getting into your gutters and clogging your system. While water can pass through the opening at a steady rate, debris is stopped by the small slit, allowing only water to pass through your gutters.

With the ability to handle 22 inches of rain each hour without overflowing, Gutter Helmet® is the best gutter system for any home or commercial building. The highest recorded rain amount in the United States is only eleven inches each hour, proving that Gutter Helmet® has the ability to handle much more than Mother Nature can throw your way.

If you’ve ever had to muck out a clogged gutter, you already know one of the biggest real-world benefits of having a gutter protection system installed: not having to do the job yourself.

Unprotected gutters need to be cleared about twice a year to keep them functioning properly. Otherwise, one or more of these problems can develop:

  • Gutter clogs and leaks
  • Roof leaks
  • Water damage on siding, windows, and exterior trim
  • Peeling interior and exterior paint
  • Foundation cracks
  • Landscape erosion
  • Mold and mildew growth
  • Insect infestations

The problem is, this semi-annual chore not only requires plenty of time and energy, but also the risk of life and limb. Nearly half of all fatal falls that occurred within the last decade have involved a ladder. Gutter Helmet® eliminates that risk by guaranteeing that you’ll never have to clean your gutters again.

GUTTER PROTECTION SOLUTIONS

Available Gutter Guard Options

There are many gutter guard systems available on the market, but not every product is a proven performer. To help in deciding the best gutter system for your home, we compare gutter protection products on the market. We’ve omitted the very worst performing products that include plastic vinyl gutter guards to reduce the confusion between products. Besides comparing design, material, gutter installation, and warranty, it’s important to include other considerations in your final decision. Does the product include a heated option for northern climates? Is it designed for installation on a variety of roofing materials including shake, shingle, and metal roofing? How does your existing home site vegetation play into the product performance?

Let’s take a look at how these products stand up to each other:
