Preventing Common Gutter Issues with Gutter Helmet®

By February 22, 2017October 18th, 2023No Comments

Gutter Helmet® is an innovative gutter protection system that significantly outperforms a traditional leaf guard on gutters in Monticello, Minnesota. In today’s post, we share some of the main gutter problems that this effective product prevents.

Gutter Helmet®


Most gutter issues stem from clogged gutters. Debris that piles up in your gutters will clog your system, making you vulnerable to the following issues.

  • Sagging: Leaves, twigs, and other debris that accumulate in your gutter system can cause gutters to detach from the fascia board and even collapse, leading to costly repairs.
  • Organic Growth: Clogged gutters can cause water to find its way into your home, causing mold and mildew growth. This not only compromises your home’s interior walls but also the health of you and your family.
  • Structural Damage: Water that overflows from clogged gutters can run down your home’s exterior walls and foundation, creating an eyesore and eventually compromising your home’s structure.
  • Flooding: Water that runs down your exterior can flood your basement, damaging your furniture and valuables and endangering your foundation.

Gutter Helmet prevents all of these problems. It features a ribbed surface that uses the principle of surface tension to ensure that water flows steadily through your gutters as intended. Its nose-forward design extends past your gutters lips and has a narrow slit at the end that water flows through, while debris falls harmlessly to the ground.

Gutter Damage

Clogging is not the only risk your unprotected gutters face. Ladders, animal and insect infestations, stains caused by rusted spikes and overflowing water, and severe weather conditions can also compromise your system if you don’t have adequate protection.

Gutter Helmet is made from lightweight but highly durable aluminum and features a PermaLife™ finish that protects it from the elements. Secured tightly to your fascia boards with heavy-duty mounting brackets, Gutter Helmet will remain in place even in severe weather. These features make Gutter Helmet a better substitute for any leaf guard on gutters in Monticello, Minnesota.
