There are many types of gutter protection systems available on the market, so choosing the right one for your needs can be challenging. We recommend installing Gutter Helmet®. We believe it is the best gutter protection system for your home because it utilizes the principle of surface tension along with gravity to achieve superior clog prevention. Here’s how it works:

How Gutter Helmet® Uses Surface Tension

What Is Surface Tension?

To see how surface tension works, go to your sink and fill a glass with water. Allow the water to run until it is about to overflow, and then shut the faucet. Do you see how the water forms a dome before it spills over?  This is caused by the molecules on the water’s surface clinging together. You can also turn the glass sideways and place it under a running faucet. You will see the water cling to the sides of the glass and follow it’s curve. That’s caused by surface tension too.

How Gutter Helmet Protects Your Gutters

Gutter Helmet has a ribbed surface and nose-forward design that uses surface tension to help protect your gutters from clogs. Thanks to the ribbed surface, water will cling to it follow the curve and enter Gutter Helmet’s narrow opening. Meanwhile, leaves, dirt and other debris will be blocked, preventing clogs from even forming.

Gutter Helmet’s Other Features 

In addition to it’s innovative design, Gutter Helmet also has exceptional tensile strength. The product utilizes reinforced aluminum alloy brackets that allow it to resist strong downpours, heavy winds and other harsh conditions. Gutter Helmet can handle up to 22 inches of rainfall per hour, so you can rest easy knowing that your home will stay safe and dry during strong rains or heavy snow.  It also features a PermaLife™ finish that can resist fading, chalking and corrosion.
