How It Works

A Gutter System That Catches Rainwater—and Only Rainwater!

Gutter Helmet’s patented gutter system only allows water to enter your gutters. Leaves, twigs, and gunk stay out! The secret of our gutter protection system is its textured surface, which makes the rain cling to it as it flows downward. The edge of Gutter Helmet is rounded and extends beyond the gutter. Rainwater curves around the edge and flows into a slit so narrow that debris cannot pass through. Gutter Helmet catches rainwater, and only rainwater! Even though the slit is only 3/8″ wide, Gutter Helmet has been proven to handle 22 inches of rain an hour without overflowing—a rate which is more than twice the amount of rain ever recorded in the U.S.

Filters Out Leaves and Twigs

While Gutter Helmet is busy capturing every drop of rain that falls on your roof, it is also rejecting every leaf, twig and bits of debris that come along with the rain. As rain flows around the rounded edge and into the gutter through the small slit, leaves and debris cannot pass through the narrow opening and they continue their downward direction and drop to the ground. (Some gutter protection systems allow leaves and other debris to get into your gutters—so you are still stuck with the problem of cleaning your gutters.) Only Gutter Helmet’s patented design is so remarkably successful at keeping gutters clean, day after day, and year after year. No wonder more American homes are protected by Gutter Helmet than any other system.

PermaLife™ High Performance Coating

Gutter Helmet not only saves you time and worry—it also adds beauty to your home. Constructed of durable but lightweight aluminum, Gutter Helmet is protected by a patented PermaLife finish, which is available in a number of gutter colors to blend with your home. The textured PermaLife finish is not only beautiful, but it provides ultimate protection from acid rain and other harmful elements in the air. This assures you that Gutter Helmet’s original beauty will never become discolored or stained over the years.
