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.

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.
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.
