Cleaning gutters is a time-consuming — and occasionally dangerous — task, and likely does not make anyone's list of favorite chores. Neglecting the upkeep of your gutters, however, can lead to even more problems later on. Obstructed gutters can overflow, encouraging the growth of mildew and mold and causing runoff damage to your home and your yard. An untouched gutter can be an enticing home for bees and birds, and a gutter full of debris can attract roaches.
Gutter guards are a worthy investment in Mentone, which is in the top 62% percentile in the country when it comes to tree coverage.

When you have gutter guards installed on your house in Mentone, you increase its value and gain many short- and long-term benefits. The biggest benefit is that adding gutter guards to your home cuts down on the need for gutter cleaning. While no device can eliminate the need for gutter cleaning, adding gutter guards greatly cuts down on the amount of time you (or your local gutter service technicians) will have to spend on a ladder.
Additionally, gutter guards can help keep away pests. Gutters that are well protected can avoid becoming home to beehives and birds' nests, and avoiding debris accumulation also helps keep away roaches and other pests that like to eat gutter waste. Guards also reduce the risk of water damage and mold growth and mitigate the chance of premature rust or corrosion on your gutters, which will save you money on repair and replacement.
Overall, gutter guards can be broken down into six types, and separated based on how easy it is to install them yourself. Brush and foam guards are the easiest to DIY, while screen and mesh guards are in the middle and ought to be installed by professionals. Micro-mesh and surface tension guards require professional installation.
There are upsides and downsides for every type of gutter guard, and the type you decide on for your Mentone home will be based on several factors. Consider contacting a local Mentone gutter guard professional to hear more about different types and decide which is best for your home.
The total cost of gutter installation in Mentone depends first on some of the details of your property — things like the size of your house and how easy it is to access your gutters. The amount you'll pay will also be a product of the kind of guard you go with, as the price per linear foot does vary based on the material. Lastly, the total cost will depend on whether you are installing the guards on your own, hiring one of the local contractors around Mentone, or hiring one of the full-service gutter guard installers who operates in California.

Reviews that you can find online, including those on the BBB website, are a good place to begin when it comes to verifying the reputation of a gutter guard installation company in Mentone.

Gutter guards cannot totally eliminate the need to clean your gutters, but they will reduce the frequency with which you'll need to climb a ladder. An uncovered gutter system needs to be cleaned between two and six times yearly, although the exact number depends on the tree coverage in your yard. If you invest enough into gutter guards, you could reduce that number to once a year or less.
