Rain gutter covers should keep your gutters free from debris to effectively drain rainwater away from your home. There are some products, however, that only do more harm than good. So, it’s important to be careful with your choices when you’re planning to install one on your home.

Read on as Gutter Helmet® of Western North Carolina talks about the dangers of using subpar gutter guards:

Short Service Life

Some gutter guards use foams to filter leaves, twigs and other debris. Although they allow water to flow into the gutters, they tend to last only for a couple of years. They eventually become brittle, which keeps them from performing well.

Unreliable Design

Meanwhile, other gutter covers feature screens and perforated designs. They may be effective at keeping leaves out, but not pods, needles and seeds. They can get stuck in the holes, which can cause water to spill over the sides. This can damage your roof, siding, foundation and even landscaping.

Gutter Helmet: The Ultimate Choice

Among the gutter guards available today, one design reigns supreme: the reverse-curve. This has been used since the early 1900s because of its proven performance. Gutter Helmet used this concept and enhanced it with a nose-forward design. This way, debris will simply slide to the edge and fall to the ground, keeping your gutters clean and clear all year round.

Apart from this, Gutter Helmet boasts excellent surface tension. Water clings to its textured cover as it enters the channels. It’s the only product that can handle up to 22 inches of rain per hour, so you can rest easy knowing that your home stays dry and damage-free during harsh conditions.
