If you are sick of climbing a ladder to scoop leaves out of your gutters, there may be an answer for you. Gutter guards and covers are essentially designed to act as a filter over your gutters in an attempt to block debris from entering your gutter without inhibiting the gutter’s ability to draw water away from the roof.
Although gutter guards and covers are often advertised as a cure-all solution to cleaning your gutters, many models may only block larger debris, while allowing smaller debris to enter the gutters despite the shield.
Your gutters get filled with leaves in the fall, but the spring brings other debris such as seed pods, flower petals, buds, and small leaves, which requires cleaning your gutters at least twice a year regularly.
There are many different types of gutter guards that can be divided into the categories of screens, inserts and reverse curves. The type you need will depend on your home’s location, as certain types of gutter guards are better in different circumstances.
What you should expect to pay for gutter guard installation will depend on the length of your gutters and the type of guards you need to purchase. Gutter guards and covers cost between $7.50 and $10 per lineal foot installed. Considering that the average home has about 200 feet of gutter, homeowners should expect to pay about $1,500 and $2,000 for professional gutter guard installation, though more complex gutter guard systems will be more expensive.
