Of course, customers have questions as well. Here are some of the most common questions you’ve asked and the answers that will help you make the best decision for your home.
Can Gutter Helmet be installed on a roof with solar panels?
Gutter Helmet is part of your roof protection system. Whether you're installing solar shingles or solar panels, you want to protect your investment and prevent water from backing up onto your roof. Gutter Helmet works to prevent damage to your solar roof.
If I have no trees, do I need Gutter Helmet?
If you don't have trees around your home, you may still need Gutter Helmet. If there is debris in your gutters, you need Gutter Helmet. Even without trees in your yard, blossoms and leaves from your neighbors' gardens can accumulate in your gutters. Fine debris from pollen, needles and decaying roof shingles also moves down into your gutters. Small animals such as wasps will still enjoy nesting in your gutters, no matter whether you have trees or not. It just makes sense to protect your gutters.
I have oversized 6" K-style gutters on my house. Will Gutter Helmet work?
Many U.S. homes have K-style gutters since these gutters give an attractive, finished look to a home. Since they have more rounded areas inside the gutters, debris can easily accumulate, and these gutters are harder to clean. Gutter Helmet works with many different types of gutters to ensure that you have the protection you need for your gutter system. Harry Helmet prevents birds, squirrels, and ants from nesting in your home.
How does Gutter Helmet prevent carpenter ants from breeding in my gutters?
Carpenter ants are a very real problem for your home, and they can compromise the integrity of your siding. With Gutter Helmet, you reduce animal attractants such as moist debris, reducing the likelihood that any animal will start a nest in your gutters. Gutters that work well also keep your siding dry, and since carpenter ants particularly like damp, rotten wood, this keeps the ants away.
What is a nose forward design? Is it important?
You put your best foot forward. Gutter Helmet puts its nose forward. With a nose forward design, you know that leaves and other debris will slide right off the end of your gutter covers. That's because the end extends beyond the rest of the gutter. Debris simply can't slide into the gutter anymore, and instead, it falls to the ground.
Can Gutter Helmet stop squirrels and birds from nesting in my gutters?
Absolutely! This is a common reason why people install Gutter Helmet products. A pile of sticks and leaves is an irresistible opportunity to birds and squirrels who see a nest ready to happen. With Gutter Helmet, not only do you avoid accumulations of leaves and sticks, you reduce entry into your gutters and prevent birds and squirrels from getting in to make a nest.
What does triple lifetime warranty mean?
If cats have nine lives, does this mean your gutter guards have three? Not quite: our outstanding triple lifetime warranty means that you're protected for life in three different ways. When you purchase Gutter Helmet products, you're covered against defective materials and workmanship. Second, your gutter helmet is guaranteed to perform by letting no debris in and handling any amount of rainfall (we have been tested up to 22" of rain per hour, twice the amount ever recorded by NOAA). Finally, these warranties are transferable, so the next homeowner will be just as pleased as you are with our product and you can add some value to your home by installing Gutter Helmet.
I have trouble with water running between my gutter and the fascia board. Can Gutter Helmet prevent this?
When you have troubles with your gutters, many of these troubles have their roots in gutter clogging. Debris such as leaves and sticks backs up in your gutters, causing them to overflow. While they often overflow down the side of your house and into your landscaping, gutters that are packed with debris and water also leak in other areas, sending water down the fascia board. Keep your roof and your siding in top shape by adding Gutter Helmet to your gutters. This prevents the water backups that cause gutter leaks.
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.
