Keeping leaves and debris from clogging your home’s gutters is an ongoing challenge. Just ask the editors of Forbes Magazine, one of the country’s leading publications on business and financial issues. Forbes recently called gutter guards a “must-have” for homeowners, especially those living in areas of extreme weather variations or who have overhanging trees on their property.
Keeping gutters clean, clear and free flowing is essential for protecting the value of a home. So, the Forbes editors decided to review and rank the leading gutter guard products available in the U.S. They assessed rain resistance, size compatibility, available colors, warranty and the manufacturer’s Better Business Bureau grade.
Guess who won.
Gutter Helmet outranked all other gutter guard products and systems that Forbes reviewed, with a 4.7 (out of 5) rating. The editors cited our patented surface tension system, durability, and low-maintenance among the reasons for making us the top choice. Here’s what they said:
“Gutter Helmet, our top reviewed gutter guard company of 2022, offers a surface tension helmet designed to hang over the gutters, protecting them from debris while only letting water fall into the gutter itself. These helmets are the gold standard for gutter guards due to their low-maintenance and incredibly long lasting durability. Surface tension helmets should only be installed by professionals and are more expensive than other styles of gutter guards, but the quality more than makes up for the initial upfront costs because of the potential for decades of use.”
Forbes also cited three main reasons for installing gutter guards like Gutter Helmet in your home: less time spent cleaning gutters; protection from water damage, mold, mildew and fire; and pest control.
