Product Information

Gutter Helmet is a patented gutter protection system designed to be installed right over your existing gutters. It keeps leaves, pine needles and other debris out of your gutters while allowing rainwater to flow freely. This revolutionary system protects your home from the harmful effects of clogged gutters, such as severe water damage and insect infestation.

Gutter Helmet guarantees that you’ll never have to clean your gutters again! You’ll never have to worry about getting on that ladder.

Gutter Helmet is the superior gutter protection system on the market. More homes are protected by Gutter Helmet than by Leaf Relief® or any other gutter guard brand!

Gutters become useless when they are clogged with debris. They become unable to channel water properly into your drainage or rainwater collection system. The resulting buildup of water can then become a breeding ground for insects, overflow into and damage your landscaping, or seep into your roof, siding, basement and foundation.

A gutter protection system eliminates these issues by addressing the root cause: it keeps debris out of your gutters, ensuring that water only goes where it’s supposed to go. Get more info on the benefits of our patented system here.

Gutter Helmet’s secret is the principle of surface tension. Hold a glass under a running faucet and you can see this principle at work: the water flows around the outside of the glass. Similarly, water clings to your Gutter Helmet as it runs down the roof, flowing freely into your gutters. Pine needles, leaves and other debris, however, fall harmlessly to the ground below. Your gutters stay open and clear, with no work on your part!

There are many benefits to installing Gutter Helmet. Our gutter protection system:
  • keeps your gutters free of clogs;
  • ensures that dirt, leaves, needles and debris roll right off of your roof and stay out of your gutters;
  • deters infestation by birds, animals and insects;
  • protects your home’s foundation and landscaping by directing rainwater away from your home;
  • protects against harmful mold, mildew and rot caused by water gathering in your gutters and seeping under your fascia and eaves; and
  • perhaps most importantly, keeps YOU off of that dangerous ladder!
Installation cost depends on a few factors, including:
  • the number of stories of your home;
  • the need for special equipment to perform the installation (due to the lay of the land or other variables);
  • the condition of your roof;
  • any fascia repair and replacement;
  • the size of your gutters
  • the type of roof you have
  • the overall length of all of your gutters; and
  • the number of corners on your home.
After inspecting your home, your Gutter Protection Expert will provide a firm quote.

Gutter Helmet is engineered to last a lifetime. That’s why call it The Permanent Solution and back it up with a Triple Lifetime Warranty. Our warranty is even transferable to the next owner of your home, so you can rest assured that you’ll never have to replace the system once it has been installed.

Easy—because you’ll never have to clean your gutters again! You avoid the stress of cleaning gunk-filled gutters yourself or of hiring someone to do it for you. No need for you or someone else to risk climbing a shaky ladder ever again.
You also avoid overflowing gutters, which can lead to rotting fascia boards and soffits as well as damage to your foundation, basement, crawl spaces and walls. Never again will rainwater destroy your landscaping by pouring off your roof.
With Gutter Helmet, you can finally stop worrying and start enjoying the peace of mind that comes from having maintenance-free gutters!

The big difference is that other gutter protection systems—like screens or grates—have vertical slots, louvers or other openings. No matter what, these openings will eventually allow leaves and debris to enter and clog your gutters.
Gutter Helmet, on the other hand, has a unique, multi-patented design with no vertical openings that can allow debris to enter your gutters. Gravity causes all leaves and debris to fall harmlessly to the ground, while surface tension causes water to flow around the exclusive cover design and back into your rain gutter system.

Gutter Helmet is made of high-quality, durable and lightweight aluminum reinforced with horizontal stiffening ribs. The system also includes reinforced aluminum alloy brackets that hold the gutter covers in place and a high-performance Kynar paint system that guards against fading, chalking and the effects of salt water and acid rain.

Very. Gutter Helmet has a patented horizontal-rib design engineered specifically for strength. Ours is also the only gutter cover system available that uses reinforced heavy-gauge aluminum alloy brackets. These brackets don’t just keep the gutter cover in place; they actually strengthen and support your gutters.

Gutter Helmet has a slit that is only 3/8” wide. The system’s patented nose-forward design further ensures that only water enters your gutters. Everything else gets swept off of the edge and falls to the ground.

Gutter Helmet® is essentially invisible because it is designed to blend into your roofline. You can choose from several colors to match your roof shingles. Colors include:
  • Dove Gray
  • Brown
  • Charcoal
  • Bronze
  • Green
  • Timber
  • Black
  • Gutter white
  • Musket Brown

Gutter Helmet® can support over 22 inches of rain per hour. That’s double the amount of rainfall that has ever been recorded by the U.S. Weather Bureau.

Installation, Care, and Maintenance

Our expert certified installers first clean, seal, check and adjust the alignment of your gutter system, where necessary. Then we custom-fit Gutter Helmet® to your home with heavy-gauge, reinforced support brackets. Gutter Helmet® panels are individually prepared and secured over your full-sized gutters.
Our certified installers mount Gutter Helmet® under or over your roof shingles, depending on the construction of your roof. After completion and final inspection, your home and your property are restored to their original condition.

Generally, the Gutter Helmet team can complete your installation within one day. This can, however, be affected by factors like weather conditions, the current state of your roof and gutter system, the need for special equipment to perform the installation, and any tune-ups or replacements that need to be done.

If your gutters are in bad shape, Gutter Helmet cannot guarantee that our system will perform as well as represented. Fortunately, most of our certified dealers are capable of tuning up or replacing gutters. Your local Gutter Helmet dealer can evaluate the condition of your gutter, advise you on whether repairs or a new gutter system is needed, and apply the appropriate solution.

No. When your Gutter Helmet® installers arrive, they’ll first clean out any leaves and debris remaining in your gutters. This gutter cleaning is complimentary, and the last you’ll ever need.

This is also the only way to ensure you receive the Triple Lifetime Warranty. Professional installers from Gutter Solutions Plus know how to install it properly for a trouble-free gutter system.
