Your gutter serves as your roof’s primary water diversion system. It allows rainwater to flow down the roof to the trough and down the pipe where it can be directed to a safe distance from your home’s roofing, siding and foundations. Without gutters, you can expect water to pool rather quickly and frequently on shallow and uneven surfaces throughout the roofing system, causing water damage, premature wood rot and even dangerous mold growth.

Clogged Gutters

Unfortunately, your gutter remains vulnerable to clogging. Leaves, small twigs and other debris often find their way up the gutters and block the flow of water. Clogged gutters can lead to leaks and other problems on your roof. Because of this, it’s equally important to install a gutter shield to help keep potential blockage from taking up space in the main trough.

Whisker Gutter Guards

Whisker Gutter Guards are a line of gutter protection products. They’re comprised of two to three rolls of brushes bundled into one long strip that goes over the gutter. The bristles help protect the gutter by keeping leaves, dirt and debris off the trough, allowing water to flow smoothly.

The concept behind this type of protection is simple enough and, in theory, designed to prevent clogging. Their actual performance, based on customer experience and reviews, leaves much to be desired. Smaller pieces of debris are still able to pass through the brushes and, over time, accumulate on both in the gutters and on the brushes themselves.

Gutter Helmet®

The Gutter Helmet system comes with a complete metal covering that fits the trough snugly. Water is able to pass through the mesh, allowing for maximum flow without overflowing the gutter itself —an advantage that Whisker Guards are not known to share.

The complete protection offered by the Gutter Helmet as a gutter shield trumps the performance of the Whisker Guard when it comes to keeping debris away from the gutter. The design is perfect for most standard gutter specifications. Moreover, the Gutter Helmet simply looks much better in comparison.
