America's #1 Choice for Gutter Protection
Gutter Helmet has been saving homeowners time, work and trouble since 1963, when its unique gutter protection design patent was first made available to homeowners.
The Permanent Solution to Clogged Gutters:
How Gutter Helmet works:
Gutter Helmet's patented gutter system only allows water to enter your gutters. Leaves, twigs, and gunk stay out! The secret of our gutter protection system is its textured surface, which makes the rain cling to it as it flows downward. The edge of Gutter Helmet is rounded and extends beyond the gutter. Rain water curves around the edge and flows into a slit so narrow that debris cannot pass through. Gutter Helmet catches rain water, and only rain water! Even though the slit is only 3/8" wide, Gutter Helmet has been proven to handle 22 inches of rain an hour without over flowing, a rate which is more than twice the amount of rain ever recorded in the U.S. Or Canada
While Gutter Helmet is busy capturing every drop of rain that falls on your roof, it is also rejecting every leaf, twig and bits of debris that come along with the rain. As rain flows around the rounded edge and into the gutter through the small slit, leaves and debris cannot pass through the narrow opening and they continue their downward direction and drop to the ground. (Some gutter protection systems allow leaves and other debris to get into your gutters-so you are still stuck with the problem of cleaning your gutters.) Only Gutter Helmet's patented design is so remarkably successful at keeping gutters clean, day after day, and year after year.

Your home is most likely the largest investment you will make. Gutter Helmet gutter protection helps you protect that investment by keeping damaging rain water where it belongs-in the downspouts and away from your house and your landscaping. Water running off of your roof can splash back onto your home, causing flooding, foundation damage, soil erosion, rotting wood and siding damage. In addition to preventing that damage, Gutter Helmet is a beautiful complement to your home, with a sleek design and textured PermaLife™ finish available in your choice of color.
Bye-Bye, Birdies, Rodents, Nests and Insects in Gutters
Before installation, your gutter installer will clean out any nests or other forms of infestation. Because the opening between the nose and your existing gutter is only 3/8 of an inch, it deters birds from nesting and insect infestations.
Micro CS is a more enhanced protection. Micro-CS™ is engineered for commercial buildings and other applications where the use of "brackets" and "reverse curve" technology impedes installation. Micro-CS™ is the only product with a Molded Screen Louver System - engineered to draw rainwater in, while preventing debris from entering. Even tiny particles, such as shingle grit and pollen are impermeable to the micro screen! Additionally, the Convex Screen Design readily sheds debris; this critical design feature sustains performance and keeps gutters free flowing.
Micro-CS™ is constructed from heavy gauge aluminum materials to maximize strength and is coated with an industrial Kynar paint system to preserve the finish for a lifetime.
Gutter Helmet color selection
Gutter Helmet is essentially invisible because it is designed to blend to your roof. You can choose among several colors to match that of your roof shingles.

RE: "Helmet Gutter(s)"
"The video we watched clearly demonstrates the efficiency & effectiveness of this brilliantly designed system, but frankly, it isn't until it's actually installed & doing it's thing during a heavy downpour, that you can appreciate just how good it really is. For homeowners who can't afford cheap gutters - that would be anyone who has slaved annually cleaning the standard product, put up with the angst of overflowing & the spinoff of poor water management, this is an outstanding product to invest in. It also helps of course, if you are lucky enough to have a professional like Andrew, who skillfully & patiently, performs the proper installation."
Thank you Andrew, [from two very happy clients]
