The Gutter Helmet® System Explained

When we say Gutter Helmet® is the permanent solution to your gutter protection needs, we mean it. There’s a simple reason why we’ve been the number one gutter guard brand in North America for more than 30 years, and it’s this: our product works.

Here’s a brief look at the science behind our design and a rundown of the benefits you can expect to get when you have Gutter Helmet® installed on your home.

How Gutter Helmet® Works

Two principles govern the way our gutter protection system works: surface tension and gravity. In the 1960s, our researchers figured out a brilliant way for a gutter cover to passively draw water into your rain gutters while allowing leaves, twigs, and all sorts of debris to fall harmlessly to the ground.

This effect is achieved through the combined action of Gutter Helmet’s ribbed surface and patented nose-forward design. The textured cap increases surface tension and allows rainwater to cling to the cover as it curves down into the gutter. Debris simply falls right off the edge.

Real-World Benefits

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.
