Comparing the Features of Gutter Helmet® with Vinyl

By August 17, 2015October 18th, 2023No Comments

Spending hours climbing a ladder and cleaning your gutters is no fun. Installing a gutter protection system will keep them from clogging and reduce your gutter maintenance needs. But don’t choose just any gutter guard; make sure to consider the materials first. One that’s made of low-quality vinyl will warp and bend after only a year or two of exposure. Metal gutter guards from Gutter Helmet® of Long Island are the better choice.

Superior Durability

Gutter Helmet® is made of tough aluminum and can withstand long exposure to the sun without any problems. In addition, heavy loads of ice, snow and rain are not a concern. Gutter Helmet® can handle more than 22 inches of rain per hour, twice the highest recorded rainfall in the U.S. It is immune to rust and water damage; it also does not react when in contact with asphalt. Plastic gutter guards, on the other hand, can become weak when asphalt seeps into the plastic cells.

Added Beauty

Vinyl can fade when exposed to the sun. In comparison, Gutter Helmet® is treated with PermaLife™ high-performance coating which will not fade, chip, peel or crack. It comes in a wide selection of colors to complement your roof’s design.

Increased Strength

Plastics like vinyl naturally harden as they age, becoming brittle and weak. In comparison, our system makes your gutters even stronger. Gutter Helmet® offers one-of-a-kind gutter protection in Bohemia, New York, because it is installed over reinforced heavy-gauge brackets for added support. Gutter Helmet® has a special horizontal rib design that further increases its strength.

Gutter protection systems make your life easier, which is why we install Gutter Helmet® on New York homes. It can withstand whatever our climate throws its way and still your gutters won’t get clogged. Give us a call if you would like to learn more about Gutter Helmet®, or to schedule a free estimate.
