Gutter Helmet®: The Best Choice for Gutter Protection

By August 2, 2017October 18th, 2023No Comments

When it comes to reliability and performance, no gutter cover works as well as Gutter Helmet®. It comes with superior qualities to make your gutters virtually maintenance-free. Here’s a closer look at other types of gutter covers and why Gutter Helmet beats them all:

Gutter Protection


Perforated metal covers fit under the shingles and cover the gutters. While this type of gutter protection is efficient at filtering leaves, it has openings big enough to let in needles, seeds, and pods. Small debris can get trapped in the perforation, which can cause water to spill over the sides. That said, they still need frequent cleaning to maintain an unimpeded water flow.

Fine Mesh Screens

Fine mesh screens were designed to address the issues of perforated gutter covers. They have tiny holes to block both large and small debris. However, while they filter seeds and pine needles out, they can get clogged with pollen and shingle grit. They also don’t handle water well, which is why water tends to wash over them instead of flowing into the gutters. This can eventually result in foundation damage and basement flooding.


Reverse-curve gutter guards have been around since the early 1900s. They direct water downward and let debris fall harmlessly to the ground. Gutter Helmet® has adapted this type and enhanced it with a nose-forward design for superior performance and durability. It comes with a ribbed surface for added surface tension, so water flows around the edge of the system and into the gutters. Its slit is very small, which makes the gutter guard more effective in blocking debris out. These features ensure your gutters remain clog-free for years to come.
