There are many gutter protection products on the market today and it can be confusing to decide which set of gutter covers is right for you and your home. However, knowing the strengths and weaknesses of different products can help you make effective purchasing decisions. Let’s compare Gutter Helmet to the stepped vinyl gutter guard.

Stepped Vinyl Gutter Guard Fail: Clogged Slots

When you use a stepped vinyl gutter guard, you essentially have a solid plastic cover with slots. Small debris can quickly become trapped in these slots. If there is heavy rain, water will be forced to flow over the cover rather than going into it as intended.

Cleaning out stepped gutter covers is cumbersome and difficult because it involves removing and reinstalling the covers. Small animals like squirrels can easily chew through the plastic. Insects such as bees and ants often build nests under these covers.

Solution: Gutter Helmet’s Solid Cover

To solve these problems, Gutter Helmet has designed an S-curve gutter screen with a textured surface that allows water to cling to its surface and flow down smoothly into gutters. This gutter protection system also prevents the accumulation of leaves and debris with a slit that is only 3/8” wide, allowing water to flow through while leaves and debris fall off the curved nose. One of the best gutter protection systems available today, Gutter Helmet gutter screens use the concepts of surface tension and gravity to keep out debris while filtering rainwater.

Innovative in its design and proven in its performance, Gutter Helmet has become the preferred standard for gutter protection systems nationwide because of its reliability. Gutter Helmet products and systems are also backed by a lifetime manufacturer warranty.

Gutter Helmet can handle as much as 22 inches of rain an hour without overflowing. Available for both residential and commercial buildings, Gutter Helmet is prepared for inclement weather conditions and will keep your buildings and properties safer and free from water damage.

Tailored to Your Needs

You can filter out twigs, leaves and other material that accumulates in gutters naturally with Gutter Helmet. These materials get stopped by the narrow slit of the gutter system and are unable to proceed any further. At the same time, water flows through seamlessly, preventing accumulation and water damage.
