Are Gutter Guards Worth the Expense?

by | Dec 28, 2017 | Window Installation

Are you sick and tired of having to set up a ladder to scoop leaves out of your gutter? If your answer is yes, you aren’t alone. You also have some options. Gutter covers or guards are used to filter the top of your gutter, so all of that nasty debris stays out as you want it too. This helps keep the gutter flowing and moving water away from the home as it is intended to do.

When it comes to gutter cleaning, gutters often get filled twice a year. The first happens in the spring when flower petals, small leaves, and seed pods come down. The second is in the fall when all the tree leaves come down. This means that you should be cleaning out your gutters at least twice a year, if not more frequently.

Gutter guards can be anywhere from inexpensive to moderately experience, depending on the type of guard and the features that it comes with. Both reverse curve and inserts act as the main categories for gutter screens. The type that will work for you is going to depend largely on where your home is located. Different types work better in certain circumstances than others.

The cost of guards and installation is going to depend on the type of guards you need, the length of the guard needed, and the price point required by the installation technician. It can add up quickly in some situations, especially if you require a more complex system than someone else does.

When it comes to whether gutter guards are worth it, the answer is often in the affirmative. Sure, it can seem like the price is high at the moment, but you may end up saving money in the long run. That’s because you won’t need to bring in a professional to clean your gutters twice a year. In fact, experts say that you should still get them cleaned once every two years, but that’s far less frequent than the alternative.
