Surface Tension for Better Gutter Protection

Surface Tension for Better Gutter Protection

Keeping your gutters in excellent shape is essential to your home’s protection. By directing rainwater away from your home, they protect your roof, foundation, and landscaping. While proper gutter maintenance is a great way to keep them efficient for years, investing in a gutter protection offers a long-term solution. At Asher Lasting Exteriors we provide only the very best, which is why we offer Gutter Helmet®. Unlike ordinary gutter guards, it uses the principle of surface tension for superior performance. Here’s how:


 Gutter Protection

What is Surface Tension?

Surface tension is the unique property of liquids that allows them to withstand external factors. It is the resulting effect when liquid molecules respond with one another. A simple demonstration of this is holding a glass under running water. See where the water clings to the surface? That’s surface tension.

How Does It Make Gutter Helmet Better?

Gutter Helmet features a ribbed surface and a nose-forward design that extends past your gutter systems. By applying the principle of surface tension, these features help ensure that rainwater sticks to the gutter guard’s surface as it flows downward. As the water enters the narrow opening, leaves and debris fall to the ground, leaving your gutters clean and clog-free.

What Else Makes Gutter Helmet Ideal for My Home?

Gutter Helmet gutter protection systems have superior tensile strength that allows them to handle heavy downpours. In fact, Gutter Helmet can withstand up to 22 inches of rain per hour. Thanks to its durable aluminum alloy brackets, your gutters remain intact through the years.

Along with exceptional protection, Gutter Helmet also offers lasting appeal for your home. It features a tough PermaLife™ finish that can resist fading, chalking, and corrosion. It also comes in a range of beautiful colors to complement your exterior.
