Many who hear about Gutter Helmet for the first time are curious – even a little skeptical. And we understand! After all, can any one product really keep out all debris? How will the water get into the gutter with the way it’s shaped? We’re here to fill you in, so let’s get into it.
Does Gutter Helmet really keep out all debris?
Simply put, yes it does. As shown in the infographic, Gutter Helmet’s unique shape allows leaves and other debris to slide off the roof and not into your gutters; it’d be pretty amazing if any leaves were capable of doubling back around and under the protective cover! And this innovative shape that keeps debris out flows nicely into our next question:
How will the water get into my gutters and not fall off the roof with my leaves?
We’re fans of simplicity so we’ll give you two words: surface tension. While the leaves and debris are busy taking a plunge off your roof, the water following it clings to the surface it’s on, causing it to follow the curve of the cover back into the gutter. To paraphrase one famous movie franchise, the water “…goes where the leaves cannot follow.”
And there you have it: simple and effective, as all good solutions are. Tune in for our next post that will take a look at the specific types and styles of gutters available for your home!
