Installing a gutter protection system is the best way to keep your gutters clog-free. However, not all gutter guards offer an acceptable level of protection. This is why you need to be careful when choosing a product.

To ensure many years of convenience and cost savings, we recommend Gutter Helmet® for your needs. The reason Gutter Helmet is so reliable is because it utilizes the principle of surface tension. If you’ve ever wondered how to clean gutters with gutter guards, here’s a discussion on how these systems work.

Understanding Surface Tension 

Surface tension is a process in which liquid acts like a thin, flexible sheet when it comes in contact with gas. You can see this principle at work by holding a glass under a running faucet. Just before the water spills over the edge of the glass, it will form a dome, thanks to surface tension.

This principle is the reason water adheres to Gutter Helmet’s ribbed surface. Instead of spilling over the sides, it will slip through the system’s tiny opening and make its way into your downspouts. Debris will then slide to the cover’s edge and fall harmlessly to the ground.

To make sure Gutter Helmet stays in great shape for many years, we secure it to your roof with reinforced aluminum alloy brackets. This allows the system to perform efficiently during heavy downpours, strong winds and other severe conditions. In turn, your home is protected from costly damage.

We also coat the system with our exclusive PermaLife™ finish, which withstands cracking, fading, chalking and corrosion. It comes in a wide range of colors to match your home.
