The best gutter covers extend past the edge of your gutters.

Are your gutter covers nosy? Every brand of gutter cover is different. Some are screens, others are made out of foam. Gutter Helmet’s nose-forward gutter cover design offers unique advantages for your home, improving upon the protection offered by other gutter cover products.

Why Your Home Needs a Gutter Cover

As long as we’ve had gutters, people have tried to protect them from the inevitable deluge of debris that they receive. In the fall, winter, and spring, leaves, sticks, and blossoms can get stuck in your gutters, clogging them. This makes water back up in your gutters, and it overflows up onto the roof, fascia, and soffits, causing rot and leaks. Overflowing water also cascades from your gutters, causing damage to the landscaping and to the siding and foundation below. If you’re trying to protect your home from overflowing gutters, you can either clean your gutters frequently or install gutter covers.

Types of Gutter Covers

There are many different kinds of gutter covers, and with those gutter covers come a host of different advantages and disadvantages. Gutter screens are a popular type of gutter cover. They’re inexpensive and easy to install, but they also accumulate debris on top of the gutter cover, so you need to clean them. Foam inserts seem like they’re a great gutter filter, but they get clogged with fine sediment, which leads to a need to clean or replace your gutter covers.

Then there are gutter covers that act as a roof over your gutter. At Harry Helmet, we provide one of these products. Gutter Helmet doesn’t clog, because there’s no screen or foam insert to get clogged. Debris simply slides off the end of the gutter cover.

What is a Nose-Forward Design?

Whether you’re considering gutter replacement or you’re simply looking for a high-quality gutter cover, one feature to look for is a nose-forward design. Gutter Helmet is designed to efficiently move debris away from your home and send it down to the ground. Using surface tension, water moves over the textured surface of the gutter cover and slips over the edge into the gutter. However, Gutter Helmet’s gutter cover doesn’t stop at the edge of the gutter. It continues on past the gutter, placing the end of the gutter cover or “nose” beyond the edge of the gutter.

The Benefits of a Nose-Forward Gutter Cover

A nose-forward gutter cover design benefits your home because it allows your gutter cover to easily shed debris. If your gutter cover ends inside or at the edge of your gutter, debris moves with the water into your gutter, where it stays and clogs the gutter over time. Gutter Helmet is designed with an understanding of the limits and characteristics of surface tension. This tension allows water to move effectively into the gutter while larger debris that doesn’t have the benefit of surface tension moves off the edge and onto the ground below.

At Harry Helmet, we’re here to protect your gutters and your home as a whole. Keep your home safe with gutter replacement and gutter covers from Gutter Helmet. Contact us to learn more about Gutter Helmet and see how our gutter cover design can help protect your home.

1 Million+ Satisfied Customers Nationwide

I recently had the Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet installed on my house. It not only looks amazing, but the guys arrived on time, were professional and efficiently got the job done. I am very satisfied with Gutter Helmet's attention to detail and fulfilling their work as promised. I will definitely tell my neighbors about the Gutter Helmet.
I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.
Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!
VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.
We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
We just had Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters and couldn't be happier. They provided us with useful information about Gutter Helmet and cleaned up everything, leaving no mess behind. We definitely recommend Gutter Helmet to anyone considering this product.
