Having a Gutter Helmet protection system installed is the smart way to protect your home and prolong the life of its gutters. Gutter Helmet greatly minimizes the amount of time you need to spend on gutter-related maintenance. However, to get the most out of your Gutter Helmet system and ensure that it works as intended, you do need to do a little simple maintenance.
The Gutter Helmet System
Unlike some gutter guard systems, Gutter Helmet covers have non-vertical 5/8-inch slits which prevent debris from getting into your gutters. The design of the system works with the force of rain to keep debris flowing across the cover while allowing the water to drain freely into the gutter.
Reclaiming Your Time Spent on Cleaning Gutters
The likelihood of debris getting into your gutters is very small with a Gutter Helmet system. This gives you the advantage of not having to scoop what can sometimes be a mucky mess out of your gutters after every storm. And of course, you don’t have to risk your safety by continually having to climb up a high ladder.
In the unlikely event that some debris has made it past your Gutter Helmets into your gutters, like asphalt shingle granules or dirt, you may be able to simply flush the debris to the downspout with your hose. For stubborn debris, such as what a bird or rodent might try to build into a nest, it may be necessary to simply unbolt the guard to assess the debris and remove it.
