What Is Gutter Helmet?

Gutter Helmet is an innovative gutter protection system that maintains the efficiency of your gutters. It keeps leaves, twigs, pine needles, and other items out of the system while allowing rainwater to flow freely. This product safeguards your home from the problems caused by congestion. We can install this right over your existing gutters.

How Does Gutter Helmet Work?

It applies the concept of surface tension. You can observe this by placing a glass under a running faucet where the water flows around the outside of the glass. Likewise, water will adhere to the Gutter Helmet’s ribbed surface as it enters your gutters.

Unlike ordinary gutter screens, it has a very small opening to keep debris out. With its patented nose-forward design, debris will simply slide off the edge and fall harmlessly to the ground. These features will maintain your gutters’ efficiency all year round.

How Strong Is It?

Gutter Helmet is a strong cover made of durable aluminum reinforced with horizontal stiffening ribs. We attach them to your roof with a heavy-duty mounting bracket so the system will stay in place despite harsh weather conditions. It also has excellent tensile strength to tolerate the heaviest downpour. In fact, it can handle up to 22 inches of rain without overflowing, which exceeds the highest recorded rainfall in the U.S.

What Are Its Benefits?

Our gutter protection system ensures that leaves and dirt are kept out of your gutters so rainwater is directed where it’s supposed to go. This protects your home’s roofing, foundation, and landscaping from major water damage. Furthermore, Gutter Helmet prevents infestations and mold growth that put your health at risk. By keeping your gutters clog-free for years, you don’t have to clean them often.

All these qualities make Gutter Helmet the best alternative for gutter screens. You can count on Mr. Fix-It to install this product on your gutters. We serve Ashland and surrounding areas in Virginia. Call us today at (866) 985-9437 for a free quote.
