You know that you’ve got too much debris in your gutters when…
- Other people see the piles of leaves on your roofline and assume your house is vacant…
- Both insects and animals are living in your gutters side by side in perfect harmony…
- There are more plants growing in your gutters than in your garden…
These are called leaves – until they fall onto your roof, where they become debris.
OK, enough jokes. You probably are aware that your gutters could stand to be cleaned. But maybe you simply don’t have the time, or it’s too expensive to get someone else to do it, or your ladder is broken, or you don’t feel safe climbing up to your roof.
Then here’s a suggestion: have a gutter cover installed over your gutters. This will help prevent leaves, pine needles, and other debris from falling or sliding into your gutters.
A Primer on Gutter Covers
If you go to a nearby hardware or home improvement store, you’ll probably see several types of gutter covers from which to choose. They’re not terribly expensive, and you can install many of these products by yourself.
However, none of these store-bought gutter covers are designed to be a permanent solution to your gutter debris problem. In other words, even if they perform adequately in the near-term, you’ll still have to replace them in due time.
You probably can’t tell, but there’s a gutter cover under there.
A few companies will offer to install their own brand of gutter covers, most of which resemble sheets of metal with slots, mesh, or similar openings in them. On first glance, they look like they’re well-suited to repel debris.
The problem is, leaves and pine needles can get caught in those openings over time; and although they won’t get into your gutters, a large accumulation of this debris will be enough to push runoff water past your gutters and off your roof entirely. Consequently, the net result is the same as having gutters that are clogged up with debris. And your home will still have unsightly debris near the roofline (which can also be a fire hazard).
Gutter Helmet Beats Them All
There is one gutter cover solution that not only makes it impossible for debris to get caught, but is also guaranteed to last a lifetime: Gutter Helmet.
You see, the Gutter Helmet gutter protection system utilizes a solid gutter cover with a nose-forward design. There is no place for debris to get caught on the gutter cover; instead, it slides over the nose of the cover and falls harmlessly to the ground. Meanwhile, runoff water or snowmelt adheres to the gutter cover’s ribbed and textured surface as it flows over the nose and through a slotted opening into your gutters.
No openings to catch debris. No debris on your roof or in your gutters. What more could you ask for?
And here’s the best part: Gutter Helmet comes with a lifetime limited warranty. This means that you’ll never have to worry about cleaning debris out of your gutters again – guaranteed!
