Your home is a major investment, so you want to take care of it. Installing seamless aluminum gutters is an important first step to protect the roof, siding, and foundation from excess moisture by guiding water away from the home. However, the gutters themselves can benefit from some protection as well. A Gutter Helmet® system is an ideal way to extend the life of your property and reduce your home maintenance workload. Here's a closer look at this product and its advantages.

What Is Gutter Helmet?

This effective guard covers your existing gutters. Once installed, the patented system allows only rainwater to flow into the channel while blocking debris accumulation, including pine needles, twigs, and leaves. 

This helps the perimeter of your home remain free from pests, organic matter, and clogs that can cause water to back up onto the roof or trickle down to the foundation, damaging the house. Though the product works best with seamless aluminum gutters due to their durability and increased water flow due to a lack of segments, Gutter Helmet is compatible with nearly any type of roof and water management system.

What's the Science Behind the Design?

The patented Gutter Helmet design improves on the reverse-curve cover system that is over 100 years old. A nose-forward design that makes use of surface tension and a 22-inch-per-hour water flow capacity make this system capable of directing rainwater into the troughs at a speed far exceeding the largest amount of hourly rainfall ever recorded in the United States.

How Will Your Home Benefit?

Gutter Helmet eliminates the safety risk and hassle of climbing on a ladder and having to clean clogged gutters multiple times a year. The system will also save money if you're used to paying someone to clean them. 

When water is directed away from the home efficiently month after month, your roof, siding, and foundation will be safe from damage and leaks. Insects and other pests won't be able to nest in the troughs, including mosquitos, which love to breed in standing water. 

The product comes with a lifetime warranty, giving you peace of mind if any repair or replacement is ever needed. By combining seamless aluminum gutters with the Gutter Helmet system installed by trained professionals, you won't have to worry about poor design, inferior materials, or improper installation.
