Why Choose Surface Tension Gutter Covers?

Gutter covers
Water sticks together: use this to your advantage and choose surface tension gutter covers.

Are you feeling tense about your gutters? When it comes to gutter care, a little bit of tension is a good thing. If you’re looking at ways to protect your gutters, you’ll notice that surface tension gutter covers outshine your other options for gutter care. These covers keep your gutters leaf-free, reduce the accumulation of fine sediment in your gutters, and allow water to flow easily from the roof into your gutters, even during a fall rainstorm.

How Does Surface Tension Work?

Imagine that you’re holding a cup in your hand. As you fill it to the brim and just a little beyond, the water molecules stick together, forming a dome shape at the top of the cup before the water spills over the sides. Water can perform fantastic feats, and part of the reason is that water molecules cling to each other. Where water hits the air, the molecules are even more sticky because they don’t have molecules above to cling onto. The water creates an elastic skin, and small objects can float or move across this surface.

When you’re using surface tension gutter covers, you use the power of this tension to your advantage. Water moves in a sheet down your roof and across the gutter cover. When it comes to the edge of the gutter cover, the water molecules cling together and slip smoothly into the gap between the cover and the gutter. However, the leaves and finer debris move out over the lip of the gutter cover and fall to the ground. This means that the water that flows into your gutters is clean and clear of debris.

Your Options For Gutter Protection

There are many options for gutter protection. How do you know that surface tension covers are the best choice? It’s simple: they prevent water damage to your home and they reduce your workload.

You want to make sure that your gutters stay clean and work well, protecting your home. Surface tension covers protect your siding, roof, and foundation from damage caused by unwanted water and ice. Mesh filters and inserts still clog and can cause water to leak over the sides, causing property damage.

Surface tension covers reduce your workload. Why are you installing gutter covers? It’s likely because you don’t want to stand on a ladder in the rain or pay someone else to do that miserable job. Gutter filters and inserts still require cleaning. Gutter inserts become full of fine debris, while mesh filters accumulate leaves and sticks over time. You may not need to clean them as often, but you still need to clean. With surface tension gutter covers, you avoid cleaning your gutters.

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.
