Bob Demartini, Founder of GutterHelmet
Gutter Helmet® started in the early 1960s, when Bob Demartini, an alumnus of MIT, began to develop a meshless gutter cover system. Clogged gutters had concerned him for some time and Bob wanted to give homeowners an alternative to cleaning their gutters or installing flimsy gutter screens. He eventually pursued his original “nose forward design” into development and testing. He came to call his innovative product Gutter Helmet®. He applied for the first of many U.S. patents. Bob Demartini officially launched Gutter Helmet® in the fall of 1981.

On September 16, 2005, SEMCO – Southeastern Metals Mfg. Co. acquired Gutter Helmet®. Proudly Made in The USA, Headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida. SEMCO is a division of Gibraltar Industries, a multi-billion dollar International building industries company.

Gutter Helmet® remains the very best gutter protection system in the world today. More than one million homeowners have chosen Gutter Helmet to protect their homes and families and we hope you will too.

Just wanted to let everyone know our experience in dealing with your sales and installation personnel has been very positive. We definitely will refer our friends.

Loren, Maple Grove, MN

How wonderful to hear the rain gush swiftly out each gutter drain. No more cleaning gutters of debris; Gutter Helmet does the job for me!

Delores, Edina, MN

We wish to thank you very much for your kindness and excellent service we received from your sales and installation people. The installation was done on time and very professionally. You were easy to deal with and we appreciate it very much. It’s great now to see all the water flow out of the downspouts when it rains!

Brad & Jayme, Eagan, MN

Just want to tell you how much we enjoy your fine product! My wife was on an 8 foot ladder cleaning out the gutters in a rain storm and I spent time in the basement with a Shop Vacuum trying to stop the basement from being flooded before we got our Gutter Helmet. I just got out of the Veteran’s Hospital getting over Pneumonia and I am so thankful that I don’t have to worry when the leaves fall and it rains!!

John L, Apple Valley, MN

I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your installer. “He did a heck of a job!” He cleaned the gutters well before installation and did a really nice job of cleaning up the debris when done. He was a really nice guy. The Gutter Helmet looks great on my house!

George L, Forest Lake, MN

Thank you for sending out such a professional sales representative. He really helped us understand how Gutter Helmet works. Your installation people were out to install our Gutter Helmet even quicker than we were told and best of all the Gutter Helmet looks great on our house!

Lou, White Bear Lake, MN

What some of our service clients are saying…..

We have been so happy with our Gutter Helmet for the past 4 years since they were installed. One of the main reasons is because of Ryan Graf, Installation Supervisor! We have had a few problems with certain sections that were installed and Ryan has been so helpful, kind, courteous and knowledgeable when he has come out to evaluate what the problems were and has fixed them correctly. Ryan is that special person and outstanding employee that always goes the extra mile and takes care of the problem and leaves the customer 100% satisfied. We hope that Ryan is always available and around if anything else develops with anymore problems, because there is no one better than him with his knowledge and customer service skills! Thank You!

Dr. James C, Edina, MN

I just wanted to thank the installer that installed my neighbors Gutter Helmet because they cleaned up so well which is so important considering we have a connecting driveway. Also thank you for coming over and fixing the leak in my gutter, they work so great now. I appreciate both the service my neighbor and I received!
