What Are Gutter Guards, and Do They Work?

As a homeowner in Alaska, you may have heard of gutter guards. Maybe your neighbors even have them. But what do they do? And are they a good investment to make for your home? Simply put, gutter guards cover—you guessed it—your gutters. They allow water to get into your gutters while keeping the bulk of the debris out.

At ABC Seamless of Anchorage, we are an exclusive distributor of Gutter Helmet®, a nationally recognized product that stands apart from other gutter guards on the market. Let’s break down what they do and how they work.

The Benefits of Gutter Helmet Guards

Gutter Helmet is the No. 1 choice of gutter guards in the nation due to its outstanding performance and clog-free design. These gutter guards feature a:

  • Textured surface – Due to a ribbed surface, water can cling to it as it flows down and into the trough.
  • Curved edge – The edge of the guard extends past the gutter, allowing all debris to be washed over the side. Meanwhile, surface tension lets the water flow into the canal through a slit that is only three-eighths of an inch wide.
  • Nose-forward design – Gutter Helmet guards slope downward, ensuring rainwater and snowmelt continuously flow off of your roof and into the gutter.

Due to their unique design, Gutter Helmet gutter guards virtually eliminate the risk of clogged gutters, so you can cross cleaning your gutters off of your to-do list for good.
