Your home is most likely the largest investment you will make. Gutter Helmet gutter protection helps you protect that investment by keeping damaging rain water where it belongs—in the downspouts and away from your house and your landscaping. Water running off of your roof can splash back onto your home, causing flooding, foundation damage, soil erosion, rotting wood and siding damage. In addition to preventing that damage, Gutter Helmet is a beautiful complement to your home, with a sleek design and textured PermaLife™ finish available in your choice of color.
Gutter Protection Eliminates Damaging Mold and Mildew
Gutter problems arise when you have clogged gutters. Instead of flowing harmlessly into your downspouts, rainwater backs up. Some will flow over the front edge of the gutter, dumping on your shrubs and bushes, and endangering your foundation. Some rainwater spills over the back of the gutter, saturating your eaves, soffit and other wooden framework. This dampness can lead to mold and mildew, which causes wood to rot and decay. Gutter Helmet absolutely prevents this buildup of water because no debris ever enters in gutters, and water always flows freely down the gutter into the downspout.
Bye-Bye, Birdies, Rodents and Insects in Gutters
Before installation, we will clean out any nests or other forms of infestation. Because the opening between the nose cone and your existing gutter is only 3/8 of an inch, it is impossible for birds to nest or rodents to enter. Any insects that might have crawled or flown in are quickly swept away by the water that flows freely through the gutter.
Safeguard Your Expensive Landscaping
Gutters that overflow pose a constant threat to your bushes and shrubs. Even your lawn can have a problem when it is drenched with excess water. One of the Gutter Helmet benefits is that it captures all the raindrops coming down your roof. It has been documented that Gutter Helmet can capture 22 inches of rain per hour—which is more than double the amount of rain ever recorded in the United States.
