Although there are several gutter protection systems available today, not all of them deliver the same level of efficiency. Each type has its own pros and cons, which is why it’s important to weigh the features carefully. The most popular products you may encounter are gutter brushes and reverse-curve gutter covers.

It’s no surprise, however, that the innovative gutter covers from Gutter Helmet® remain the top pick for many homeowners across the region. Today, your premier gutter guard installer discusses how typical gutter brushes compare to Gutter Helmet systems.

Gutter Brushes

Gutter brushes are designed to fill the gutter’s cavity. They block leaves, twigs and other debris while allowing rainwater to pass through their bristles. The intent is to let some of the refuse decompose in the bristle. Larger debris, on the other hand, can be blown away by wind or removed by hand.

The problem, however, is that unwanted junk can build up behind the projecting bristles, interfering with the flow of water. It can also be difficult to get rid of the debris from the brushes. This defeats the purpose of making your gutters virtually maintenance-free.

Gutter Helmet

Meanwhile, Gutter Helmet, a reverse-curve gutter guard, exhibits high-performance qualities like no other. It comes with a solid cover and nose-forward design to sweep leaves, dirt and other debris to the edge, making them fall to the ground. Water then clings to the textured surface as it enters your gutters. These features ensure your gutters stay clean and clog-free, with less work on your part.

Gutter Helmet also contributes to your home’s charm, thanks to its PermaLife™ finish. It won’t chalk, fade, peel or corrode, which is why you can use the system to add a sleek accent to your exterior. It’s available in a wide array of colors to complement your roof line.
