A clogged gutter system is one of the biggest threats to your property. Unchecked, a clog can cause water in the gutter troughs to overflow into the roof’s fascia and spread to other parts of your home like the ceiling and siding. Gutter Helmet®, one of the most effective gutter protection systems available today, is specially designed to keep clogging from happening. Seamless Exterior explains how Gutter Helmet works in today’s post.
A Unique Design
What separates Gutter Helmet from other types of gutter protection systems is its unique design. Instead of having grills or small slats on its surface, Gutter Helmet uses a patented nose-forward profile that curves toward the lip of the gutter. This curve allows the water to flow in while keeping leaves and other debris out by taking advantage of the water’s surface tension.
How Surface Tension Works
Surface tension refers to the ability of liquid particles to stick together. Surface tension causes rainwater flowing over our Gutter Helmet system to “stick” to the surface, causing it to literally flow inward and safely into the gutter trough. Solid matter does not have surface tension, which makes them fall from the gutter once they reach the curved edge of the premier gutter protection system we offer at Seamless Exterior.
Apart from being an effective form of gutter protection, Gutter Helmet is also known for its low-maintenance requirements. Because it doesn’t have any features like bristles or small holes that could catch debris, you don’t have to check it as often as other, more conventional alternatives.
Goes With Any Design
Gutter Helmet’s unobtrusive design makes it a versatile gutter protection option for various home designs. There’s no need to worry about ugly bits of mesh or metal sticking out of your gutters. Our team of experts can install Gutter Helmet with the right color to match your roof.
