Gutter guards prevent your gutters from clogging with rainwater, leaves, and debris. Installing the right gutter guards can save you time and money. With the right guards, you will never have to clean your gutters again. It is important to understand the different types of guards available to avoid disappointment.
Gutter guards fall into two main categories:
Gutter Screens Gutter guard screens are usually made out of foam, wire mesh or nylon. They are simple and very cheap to install, but they do not last very long and can clog the gutters. When this occurs, homeowners are left feeling very frustrated and at a financial loss.
Gutter Covers Gutter guard covers sit on top of the gutters, which limits the water flow of rainwater entering the gutters. The reason for this is simple.....they cover the gutters. Gutter covers can be made out of aluminum, wire mesh, nylon, foam, plastic or copper to name a few. Gutter guards are higher quality than gutter screens as they provide a superb level of protection and can stop tiny tree flower buds, evergreen leaves, and seed pots from entering the gutters.
Design is Key The design of the gutter guards makes all the difference in the performance of protecting the gutters than the material itself. Gutter Helmet has a patented design allowing the water to seamlessly flow into the gutter while the debris funnels over the edge of the gutter. The materials used are heavy duty aluminum completed with Kynar paint system for a Permalife finish. Permalife has a long life expectancy, designed to stand up to acid rain, pollutants, and saltwater resisting against corrosion and fading.
