This is understandable, as wet leaves can quickly become a slimy, soggy mess. That’s why many homeowners choose to install Gutter Helmet® gutter guards and save themselves from having to deal with this unsavory, time-consuming and sometimes dangerous task! How They Work Gutter Helmet offers the best gutter covers in the industry. They’re designed to keep leaves and other debris out of your gutters, and they do such a great job that you’ll never have to clean the gutters again! In fact, Gutter Helmet is America’s #1 choice for gutter covers. Below, we outline a few of the most important things that you should know about the Gutter Helmet gutter protection system. Gutter Helmet has a patented “nose-forward” design that moves debris away from the gutters. This means that the gutter is facing away from the roof, with its surface extending past the edge of the gutters. It then curves in, creating a downward slope off which leaves, twigs, seed pods and other tree debris easily slide.Its textured surface allows water to flow smoothly into the gutters. Water clings to the ribbed, textured surface of Gutter Helmet covers, following the slope down until it flows freely into the gutters. This feature adds strength to the structure and enables Gutter Helmet to handle even the toughest weather conditions, such as heavy rain or snow. The narrow ⅜-inch slit keeps small animals out of your gutters. The slit through which the water moves into the gutters is so small that no animals will be able to get into them. This will stop birds and small animals from building nests and prevent clutter from accumulating in the gutters and causing clogs.
