Clogged and overflowing gutters can cause several problems, including roof leaks, siding damage, landscaping damage and foundation cracks. Fortunately, Chattahoochee Gutter Co., Inc. can help you deal with this problem. We can install the best rain gutter system for your home and improve it further with our gutter protection system: Gutter Helmet®. This product is special because it utilizes the principle of surface tension. Learn more about it below.

How Gutter Helmet® Takes Advantage of Surface Tension

What Is Surface Tension?

Surface tension refers to the tension on the surface film of a liquid caused by the attraction of the particles in the topmost layer, which tends to minimize surface area. You can observe how surface tension works by taking a cup and holding it sideways over running water. Thanks to surface tension, the flow of water will follow the curve of the glass. Chattahoochee Gutter Co., Inc. installs Gutter Helmet. This product takes advantage of surface tension to effectively block leaves and debris from entering your gutters.

Unlike other gutter protection systems, Gutter Helmet completely covers your gutters and has no vertical openings. The only opening is a horizontal slit that’s only a fraction of an inch wide and is located beneath the curve of the gutter cover. Because of surface tension, water can follow the curve of the gutter cover and enter the horizontal opening and flow into your gutters. Leaves, pine needles and other debris can’t do this so they will simply fall off the roof.

What Are Gutter Helmet’s Other Features?

Apart from its innovative design, Gutter Helmet has plenty of other great features. We install it using reinforced aluminum brackets that can strengthen and support your gutter system. This will allow Gutter Helmet to handle the weight of heavy precipitation. Gutter Helmet also has a PermaLife™ finish that won’t fade, crack, chalk or chip, even when exposed to saltwater and acid rain. Finally, our gutter protection system comes in a range of colors, allowing it to match any roofline.

The best rain gutter system for your home will be one that doesn’t clog and requires practically no maintenance.
