There are many benefits to installing gutter guards on your West Covina home. Decreasing the time spent cleaning your home's gutters is the most important reason many purchase gutter guards. Gutter guards — or any other device — won't eliminate the need for occasional gutter cleaning, but they can significantly cut down on the time you spend on this chore, or the amount you spend on employing professional gutter services.
Additionally, gutter guards can help keep pests out. Well-protected gutters can avoid becoming home to birds' nests and beehives, and reducing debris buildup also helps discourage roaches and other pests that eat gutter waste. Guards also reduce the risk of mold growth and water damage and mitigate the chance of your gutters rusting or corroding prematurely, saving you money in the future on repair and replacement.
Gutter guards can be separated into six main types, with varying levels of installation difficulty. Brush and foam guards are easier to install on your own; screen and mesh guards are more difficult and should be installed by a professional; and surface tension and micro-mesh guards require professional installation.
Each guard type has its own pros and cons. The best type for your West Covina home will be determined by several factors. It is a good idea to speak with one or more of West Covina's local gutter guard installers to find out which types of guards they install, and which are best for you.
