Leaf me alone: a gutter guard is quite simply the easiest way to keep leaves from clogging and damaging your gutters and downspouts. Every year, you spend time standing on a ladder wrestling leaves from the gutter, and every year, you think that there must be a better, more efficient way to complete this task. There is.
Why You Need a Gutter Guard
With a gutter guard, you’ll eliminate the time you spent removing leaves from your gutters, and you’ll rest assured knowing that your gutters will run clean and clear all year round. Better gutter drainage means fewer problems with landscape erosion and leaks from water that’s cascading from your gutters. It also means that your gutters remain free of pests such as wasps during the summer months. A gutter guard from Harry Helmet® will make your seasonal maintenance simpler as you remove one item from your annual list.

How Gutter Guards Work
How do gutter guards work? The idea is simple, yet it’s very effective. Instead of having a gutter that’s open and filling up with debris, your gutter gains a roof that shelters it from leaves and other seasonal debris. Water flows down the gutter cover into the gutter, clinging to the gutter as it runs down. Harry Helmet’s gutter guards are designed to last, with two customized brackets and a Permalife textured coating surface that won’t fade or chalk.

The Financial Benefits of Gutter Guards
Gutter guards come with a cost, but so do the problems associated with traditional gutters. Traditional gutters can fill with leaves, causing trouble with pests, damaged gutters, and overflowing water that spills over, causing erosion and placing water exactly where you don’t want it: near your home’s foundation. If you’re not able to clean your gutters yourself, you need to hire someone to do it.
Installing a gutter guard will cost you money upfront, but you need to look at the benefits of this investment. Every year, you’ll avoid spending multiple times on gutter cleaning, a cost of over $2000 over a five-year period. You’ll also avoid water damage to your siding, landscaping, and foundation. Most of all, you won’t need to worry about spending the time up a ladder, something that can lead to personal injury. When you think about it, the return on your investment could be even greater!
Gutter Guards Work With Your Home
Gutter guards are perfect for your home and lifestyle. They make your home look tidy, protecting and maintaining your gutters. They reduce the amount of time you need to spend on unpleasant maintenance tasks, increasing the time you have to enjoy your garden. They’re also compatible with green living technologies such as rain barrels, ensuring that the water that enters the rain barrel is clean and clear. Gutter Helmet® gutter guards are compatible with other gutter protection products such as Helmet Heat®, keeping your gutters running efficiently all winter long.
