Gutter Brushes vs. Gutter Helmet®: Which Is Your Best Option?

April 09, 2019

Cleaning gutters can take up a lot of your time and energy, which is why gutter guard systems can be very useful. They prevent clogging in the gutters by filtering out debris.

Gutter Helmet Installation | Gloversville, Johnstown, NY

There are three different kinds of gutter systems you can choose from, but in today’s post, your local gutter contractor, Gutter Helmet® of Eastern NY, focuses on gutter brushes and Gutter Helmet®.

Gutter Brushes 

Gutter brushes are inserted in the gutter’s cavity. The brush filters the debris out of the water, with the debris then left in the brush to decompose. You can remove the brush for cleaning, but not all the debris can be removed. Leaves and pine needles can get stuck and build up in the bristles, blocking the water flow in the gutter.

Gutter Helmet

This gutter protection system is installed over new or existing gutters. Featuring a special nose-forward design that separates debris from the water, Gutter Helmet comes with a 3/8-inch slit that filters out twigs, leaves and other objects. 

Our Gutter Helmet systems can handle torrential downpours with ease. The systems’ PermaLife™ finish keeps your gutters protected in style against acid rain and salt water. Heavy-duty aluminum mounting brackets are used to attach Gutter Helmet to make sure it remains intact even during severe weather. 

Why Gutter Helmet Is the Superior Choice

Gutter brushes are a temporary solution for your gutters. A big downside of brushes is that you still have to clean them to make sure that your gutters are not clogged, so they don’t eliminate the need for gutter maintenance 

With Gutter Helmet, you don’t have to worry about debris getting stuck in the gutters. This product is a valuable investment as it protects your home from water damage. You won’t have to clean your gutters or hire cleaning services. It also comes with a lifetime no-clog warranty.
