The time taken and risks assumed during gutter cleaning make the task unappealing for many homeowners. However, leaving your gutters unattended can cause many problems. Undisturbed gutters can over time become host to bees and birds, and debris left sitting in gutters can become food for roaches. Gutters full of stagnant water can lead to growth of mold and mildew, and blocked gutters might overflow, resulting in water damage to your lawn and home.
Although it is possible to install some types of gutter guards on your own, you might have some anxiety about the amount of effort it will take and whether the guards you install will last a long time — in this case, finding a local Brighton gutter guard installer will be your smartest choice.

When you install gutter guards on your Brighton home, you add to its value and gain many long- and short-term benefits. The biggest benefit is that having gutter guards installed on your home reduces the need to clean your gutters. While there is nothing that can eliminate the need for gutter cleaning, adding guards greatly reduces the amount of time you (or your local gutter service technicians) have to spend on a ladder.
In addition, gutter guards can help keep pests away. Gutters that are protected avoid becoming home to beehives and birds' nests, and reducing debris buildup also helps keep out roaches and other pests that eat gutter waste. Guards also decrease the risk of water damage and mold growth and mitigate the likelihood of your gutters rusting or corroding prematurely, saving you money in the future on repair and replacement.
In general, gutter guards can be split into six types, and placed in tiers based on how easy they are to install yourself. Brush and foam guards are the easiest to DIY, while screen and mesh guards are in the middle and generally should be installed professionally. Surface tension and micro-mesh guards require professional installation.
Every type of gutter guard has its pros and cons, and the best type for your Brighton home will be determined by a number of factors. It is a smart idea to get in touch with one or more of Brighton's local gutter guard installers to learn about what types of guards are available, and which are best for your house.
The final cost of gutter guard installation in Brighton will vary based on a number of factors, such as the size of your house and the accessibility of your gutters. The type of gutter guards you pick will also affect how much you pay, as the cost per linear foot changes based on the type of materials. Another thing that will change the cost is whether you install the gutter guards on your own, use the services of a local contractor in Brighton, or hire one of Colorado's many full-service gutter companies. Doing everything on your own is the least expensive option. Hiring a full-service company will be the most expensive but will also offer the most support during steps of the process like selecting a material and measuring your gutters.
To most accurately estimate how much it will cost to add gutter guards to your home, speak with one or more of the gutter guard service professionals from the above list and inquire about getting a free inspection and estimate. You can also utilize our table below to explore specific price ranges for various styles of gutter guard materials.

You might be used to handling many household projects yourself — you may have even installed the gutter system on your Brighton home yourself — but gutter guard installation is a job that should be undertaken by the professionals. A Brighton gutter services company can help guarantee that all measuring work is completely accurate and that materials are not over-purchased. They are the experts when it comes to installing gutter guards and can complete the job quickly and safely, and will save you time and stress. They can help recommend the best guards for your house based on the specific details of your property. For some gutter guard types, such as screen, mesh, surface tension, and micro-mesh, hiring a professional to do the installation is highly recommended or required.
If you want to hire a company that can provide you with a free estimate and a full installation, no need to look beyond LeafFilter. LeafFilter's patented three-piece 275-micro micromesh screen system also comes with a lifetime transferable warranty.
As a general rule, gutter guards are a great investment for any home. They can prolong your gutter system's lifespan, help your property look nicer, and save you money on cleaning and repairs. They lessen the risk of mold and mildew growth and keep your gutters from becoming host to birds and insects. Additionally, when it comes time to move, gutter guards can add extra value to your property as you are trying to sell it.
Internet reviews, including those through the BBB, are a good place to start when you're trying to find more about the reputation of a gutter guard installation company in Brighton. The gutter services company that you ultimately choose should be able to explain how their methods do or do not affect your roof warranty, and following an inspection they should be able to produce a written estimate. They should also be able to supply information about their warranty policy in writing and provide proof of insurance, in case of the unlikely event that someone sustains an injury while on your property.
Different gutter guards have different costs per linear foot. See our table above to estimate the amount you will pay for gutter guards based on the size of your gutter system and the material you choose. You may also have to account for labor costs if you purchase certain guard types.
There are some companies that can install both gutters and gutter guards. The fastest way to find out which companies offer both services and get an approximate cost is by reaching out to them directly. (You can also check if they are on our list of Brighton's best gutter service companies.) We recommend contacting a couple of the companies on our list above to ask about what services they offer and compare prices if you need this type of gutter overhaul.
Some full-service gutter guard installation professionals have a lifetime transferable warranty for their products. This will not only protect you if your gutter guards fail, but the warranty can be transferred to the next homeowner and adds value to your property when it comes time to sell it.
Gutter guards cannot totally eliminate the need for gutter cleaning, but they can reduce how often you have to climb a ladder. Gutters without guards need to be cleaned between two and six times yearly, although the frequency depends on your property's tree coverage. If you invest enough into gutter guards, that number could shrink to once a year or less.
