There are many products that claim to protect your gutters. However, not all of them are effective. As an expert on gutter protection and on how to clean gutters with gutter guards, we believe that foam gutter guards are not worth the investment, even if they are affordable. Here’s why:

Why Foam Gutter Guards Aren’t Worth the Hassle

Why Foam Gutter Guards Aren’t Worth It

Foam gutter guards are made of highly porous foam and placed inside your gutters. The idea is that the foam will prevent debris from accumulating in the gutter, while rainwater can pass through unhampered. Many homeowners choose this gutter protection product because it is affordable. However, it is not very effective. The holes in the foam are too small to allow water to flow in your gutters freely. This can cause your gutters to overflow during a storm.

Over time, debris that the foam gutter guards stop will begin to clog the foam. To prevent this, you need to frequently remove the foam from your gutters and clean it, or else install new foam regularly. This is a time-consuming chore that just replaces your regular gutter cleaning responsibility with something else.

Why Gutter Helmet® Is Better

It’s better to just install a high-quality gutter protection system that you can rely on instead of constantly cleaning or replacing a foam gutter guard. We recommend Gutter Helmet. This product is America’s number one choice for gutter protection because it is effective, long-lasting and durable. It completely covers your gutters while still allowing rain to flow into your gutter system.

We can install Gutter Helmet and make all of your gutter clog troubles go away. We also know how to clean gutters with gutter guards, so you won’t have to worry about cleaning your gutters and Gutter Helmet any longer.
