Your gutters play an essential part in protecting your roof and home from water damage during heavy rains. They effectively redirect the rainwater away from the roof, but they can easily become clogged by leaves, dirt, and other debris. It can be irritating to have to go up to unclog your gutters too often. That’s why we recommend investing in gutter helmets for your gutters.

What Are Gutter Helmets?

Here are a few essential facts you need to know about gutter helmets:

  • They offer protection for your gutters. The most important thing you need to know about gutter helmets is that they offer protection for your gutters. They look fairly close to what the name suggests. Placed over the top of the gutters, gutter helmets effectively cover the gutters and keep out any leaves or debris.
  • They still allow water to flow. You might be thinking that gutter helmets would defeat the purpose of gutters by blocking out the water just as well as the debris, but this is not true. Gutter helmets use the science of surface tension to direct the water over the gutter helmet and into your gutters to be redirected away from your roof. They work well for both light and heavy rainfall.
  • They prevent clogs. With gutter helmets, you can say goodbye to clogs in your gutters. The helmets effectively redirect any leaves, pine needles, or other debris away from your gutters and onto the ground, so you won’t have to make the long trek up the ladder to unclog your gutters!
