4 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Gutter Helmet

December 12, 2014

Cleaning gutters has always been a bit of a bother. This is true especially for those of us living fast-paced lifestyles; there’s just no room in our schedules for raking leaves and twigs off the roof.

Wouldn’t it be great to never have to worry about your gutter in Albany NY ever again?

Try Gutter Helmet®. It’s the original gutter protection system meant for homeowners who are do no want to spend their time and effort on cleaning their gutters. Here are four things you need to know about how it works:

  1. Ribbed surface

Gutter Helmet has a textured surface for increased surface tension. Surface tension allows water to follow the slope of the cover and flow seamlessly into the gutters. The horizontally ribbed surface also adds tensile strength, which means it can withstand even the harshest weather conditions.

  1. Nose-forward design

A truly effective cover prevents clogging by diverting leaves, twigs, and debris away from the gutter opening. Gutter Helmet does that effortlessly. Its “nose-forward” design makes the cover’s surface extend just a little beyond the edge of the gutter. This ensures there are no vertical slits where litter can enter. The nose also slopes downward slightly so that leaves and debris slide easily away from your house and gutters.

  1. Precisely engineered slit

If you look closely, there is a tiny slit between the nose of the cover and the edge of your gutters. That’s deliberate. The hole is precisely 3/8” wide so that anything that isn’t water cannot pass through. With no litter to block its way, water can flow freely inside the gutter and down the drainpipes.

  1. PermaLife™ coating

The gutter cover can be installed over or under your shingles – either way, some part of it will be exposed. Fret not! We have this covered. Gutter Helmet is coated with a PermaLife finish, a high performance paint system that protects the cover’s aluminum surface from chalk, fading, salt water, and acid rain. It comes in a number of attractive colors, all designed to match the color of your home.
