No matter what kind of roof you have, Harry Helmet works to protect it.

You’re considering a gutter cover, but will it work with your existing roof? Your roof is your home’s defense system against wind, rain, and snow. The last thing you want to do is to compromise it. Will Gutter Helmet gutter cover products work with your roof, or do you need to replace shingles to ensure that your roof and your gutters work together?

Will a Gutter Helmet Gutter Cover System Work With My Roof?

There are many types of roofing materials, from asphalt to clay tile to wood. All of them need protection from the elements, particularly from water that seeps in under the roof. Gutter Helmet’s gutter covers are here to help any style of roof, no matter what the material. They are designed to sit on diverse types of gutters too.

If you have over-sized K-style gutters, Gutter Helmet works with them to prevent clogging. Gutter Helmet gutter cover products have a special nose-forward design that works with surface tension to water move into your gutters but to prevent debris from sliding in. The debris slides to the ground. They’re also designed to help prevent leaks between the fascia board and the gutter. With a gutter cover, your roof is protected from water and ice backups.

What About My Specialty Roof?

If you have a roof with a special covering such as tiles or solar panels, you want to protect your investment and prevent water from backing up onto your roof. Gutter Helmet works with a diverse array of roofing products. No matter what roof you have, we can protect it. If you’re concerned about compatibility, contact us to learn more about how your roofing can work with our gutter cover systems without a roof replacement.

Check with your installer, but a Harry Helmet installation should not void your roof warranty.

Will Gutter Helmet Void My Roof Warranty?

If you don’t read the fine print on your roofing warranty, you could end up invalidating your coverage. Your roof likely has a warranty for materials and one for installation. If you conduct any repairs to the roof, it’s possible to void the warranty. It’s also possible that adjustments to your roof such as installing skylights could void your roofing warranty.

Check with the original installer to see if they need to make the repairs themselves. While you need to be careful about your warranty, adding a gutter cover system won’t affect it. A gutter cover sits next to the roof and protects your gutters from seasonal debris. It’s an important part of your roofing system, and Gutter Helmet has confirmed with roofing companies to ensure that our products will not void your roof warranty.

When you’re ready to enhance your drainage system with a gutter cover, Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet is ready for you. Contact us today to learn more about gutter guards.

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.
