A high-quality gutter protection system can reduce the risk of roof leaks, landscape damage and siding deterioration. However, there are many gutter protection systems to choose from and knowing which one would work best can be challenging. To help you, Gutter Helmet® of Minnesota, installer of one of the best gutter covers on the market, compares gutter protection systems:

Gutter Protection System Comparison

Gutter protection systems include foam gutter inserts, gutter brushes, mesh screens, micro-mesh screens and reverse curve surface tension gutter systems.

Foam gutter inserts are used to fill your gutters with a highly porous foam. In theory, this foam prevents debris from clogging your gutters while still allowing water to flow through the system. In reality, homeowners report that foam inserts can promote moss growth.

Gutter brushes also fill your gutters and they aim to achieve the same goal as foam gutter inserts. However, you cannot remove debris from the brushes once they get stuck there.

Mesh screens and micro mesh screens cover your gutters, while small holes allow water to get through. But leaves can still accumulate on top of them and small debris can enter the holes.

Reverse curve surface tension gutter systems like Gutter Helmet cover your gutters and don’t have vertical openings. This clever design allows water to enter while leaving no chance for debris to get into the gutter system or get stuck above it.

Why Choose Gutter Helmet?

Gutter Helmet is the best choice for gutter protection because debris has no way to get into your gutters once we install our product. There are no vertical openings for leaves and other detritus to enter because it completely covers your gutters. Water still flows smoothly into your gutters because of the principle of surface tension. Water will cling to Gutter Helmet’s ribbed surface, follow the curve of the cover, and enter through a narrow horizontal opening. Leaves and other debris simply fall off the roof.

Gutter Helmet is one of the best gutter covers available on the market because of its innovative design and proven performance. It also comes with an excellent warranty for your peace of mind.
