By September 21, 2016October 18th, 2023No Comments

If you want to prevent clogs inside your gutters, consider investing in a gutter protection system. This system works to filter debris such as leaves and dirt from rainwater, so they won’t build up inside open gutters. If you’re in the market for new gutter covers, Gutter Helmet® of Long Island recommends looking for the following features.

Gutter Protection System


Gutter screens in Bohemia, New York, face the elements every day. Your new gutter covers should be able to withstand even harsh conditions all year long. Gutter Helmet, America’s leading gutter guard brand, adds strength to gutters with heavy-duty mounting brackets. In fact, with Gutter Helmet, your system can handle up to 22 inches of rainwater per hour. This is twice the highest amount of rainfall ever recorded in the country.

Effective Filter Design

Gutter covers must have an effective design that separates any type of debris from rainwater. Gutter Helmet, for example, combines surface tension and gravity to keep debris away. It has a textured and ribbed surface that water clings to, while the patented nose-forward design lets leaves and dirt fall as they reach the edge. Gutter Helmet also has a small slit where only water can enter.

Aesthetic Appeal

You don’t want to notice ugly gutter screens in Bohemia, New York, from the ground. With this in mind, look for a cover that will go well with both your roof shingles and gutter system. If you choose Gutter Helmet, you can select from a wide range of colors. You also don’t have to worry about fading or chalking, as Gutter Helmet comes with a PermaLife™ finish. This high-performance Kynar paint even resists corrosion from acid rain and salt water.
