Why Gutter Helmet® Is Not Your Average Gutter CapJune 28, 2018
Your gutters may be in charge of protecting your home from water damage, but what’s protecting them? We recommend investing in our trademark Gutter Helmet® protection system. Today, Gutter Helmet of Eastern NY explains why this innovative device is much more than just a regular gutter cap.
What Is Gutter Helmet?
Gutter Helmet is the most effective gutter protection system available today. It can be installed over existing gutters just like a regular gutter cap. What sets it apart is its innovative design, which capitalizes on the principle of surface tension to ensure the uninterrupted flow of water into your gutters and downspouts.
How Does It Work?
Unlike a regular gutter filter, which has small perforations that are intended to filter out debris, Gutter Helmet has a completely solid surface. What makes it effective is its nose-forward shape, which curves slightly inwards at the outer edge. Because of surface tension, water “wraps” or curves to conform to the system’s shape and flows into a thin slit straight to the gutter trough. As the water makes its way down the system, debris safely slides off the edge of the gutter.
How Is It Any Better Than the Alternatives?
Unlike other gutter protection systems, Gutter Helmet passively minimizes the amount of debris that accumulates in your gutters. Whisker gutter guards keep debris from clogging the trough, but debris can still get stuck in the bristles. Regular gutter filters need to be cleaned often, as debris accumulates inside of them. With Gutter Helmet, homeowners never need to lift a finger; the system will effectively block debris from your gutters without needing any maintenance from you.
Will It Work on My Home?
Gutter Helmet is designed to be compatible with any type of gutter. Our experts can install Gutter Helmet over seamless aluminum gutters just as easily as with other type of gutters.
