Why Gutter Helmet is a Better Choice over Splash Guards

By July 22, 2016October 18th, 2023No Comments

The roof valley, that point where the roofing sheets meet, can be a major source of water runoff. You can install a splash guard there in addition to your gutter cover, but it seems like a hassle when you can install Gutter Helmet, a gutter guard that does both.

Let Spokane Rain Gutter examine how Gutter Helmet compares with a typical gutter splash guard in Spokane Valley, Washington:

Clog Prevention System

Splash guards simply prevent water from flowing over the top of the roof valley and spilling onto the ground. As such, leaves, twigs, pine needles, and other debris in the water will also flow into the troughs. Even if there is a gutter cover in place, rapidly flowing water may be too much for it to handle.

Gutter Helmet, on the other hand, uses a reverse curve method to prevent clogs. Its nose-forward design and ribbed surface ensure that only water gets in while debris falls freely to the ground. Even if tiny leaves manage to slip through the surface, they won’t be able to pass the 3/8-inch slit that covers the gutters.

Roof Slope Compatibility

A gutter splash guard in Spokane Valley, Washington, works best for steep sloped roof valleys. If you have a flat sloped roof and you live in an area with low rainfall, you may be able to make do without one. Either way, you will still need a gutter protection system, so wouldn’t it be better to get one that performs the function of both?

Gutter Helmet follows the natural slope of your roof so water can flow straight into the troughs unobstructed. Its reinforced alloy bracket will hold it in place regardless of wind or water force. In fact, it can support up to 22 inches of rain per hour without overflowing; an impressive feat considering that figure is twice the highest amount of rainfall ever recorded in the U.S.

Fading, Chalking, and Corrosion Resistance

As an added benefit, Gutter Helmet comes with Permalife™ finish, a high-performance, multi-layer finish that protects against fading, chalking, and corrosion from acid rain or salt water.

It is noteworthy that Gutter Helmet has been the number one choice in gutter protection for over 30 years. Make the switch today by calling us at (866) 959-1141. We will be happy to provide you with a free quote.
