A Note to Our Customers About COVID-19

Gutter Helmet gutter guards have been around for a long time. That doesn’t make them the right choice in gutter protection for your home. Gutter Helmet is considered a “hood-style” gutter guard, meaning there will be a curved top combined with a long slot in the front of the gutter to allow water to enter. Unfortunately, there are many problems with this style of gutter guard, making them a temporary solution at best.

Large Holes, Gaps, or Openings

Gutter Helmet gutter guards feature a large opening that runs the entire length of the gutter, allowing debris to enter and clog your gutter system.

    Water Flow

    Once installed under your first row of shingles, it will cause water to run off, damaging your landscaping and contributing to basement flooding and foundation issues.

      Difficult to Clean

      Once your gutters fill with debris, you’ll have to remove the hood gutter cover entirely to clean inside the gutter. This process can be time-consuming — if not impossible. You may even need to contact a professional to fix the problem for you.

        No Clog-Free Guarantee

        Gutter Helmet is backed with a warranty that supports routine gutter cleanings. Why? They simply cannot guarantee that the gutter will remain free of debris.

          Major Roof Impact

          Installation may require screwing the product into your roof shingles, which will cause major water damage and can void your roof warranty.
