With the variety of gutter protection systems available, homeowners are left with the difficult task of choosing the one that best fits their needs. That’s extra challenging, however, when you aren’t familiar with these products. For instance, you might come across an inexpensive alternative like a foam gutter guard, but how can you tell if it can really keep debris out?

RBC Roofing discusses how a do-it-yourself foam gutter guard and a professional gutter protection system differs.

Foam Gutter Guards

This gutter protection system comes in long pieces of dense triangular or thin, arch-shaped foam formed to fit inside the gutters. While the foam allows water to pass through it, this type of gutter guard doesn’t guarantee clog-free gutters. You also need to be careful when purchasing it because you need to get the correct size. If not, you need to cut each piece to fit the system.

Moreover, debris also tends to settle on the foam’s surface. It impedes water flow, which can still result in overflowing gutters.

Gutter Helmet®

When investing in gutter guards, you need to know whether the system can live up to its promise. With Gutter Helmet®, you won’t have to worry about gutter maintenance; this gutter protection system will do the job for you. It has a unique nose-forward design and a ribbed surface that allows water to adhere and move directly to a small slit. It also blocks dirt from entering the system. That said, leaves, twigs and other debris are swept aside while falling harmlessly to the ground.

Additionally, Gutter Helmet has a PermaLife™ finish that provides long-lasting beauty and protection. This unique coating has many color options that can fit your preferences.
