Having to clean your gutters multiple times every year can be a headache, from the time invested to the safety risks involved with getting up on a ladder. Neglecting the upkeep of your gutters, however, can cause even more problems in the future. Blocked gutters can overflow, encouraging mildew and mold growth 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 may attract roaches.
Belleville is in the top 60.0% percentile in the country in terms of average daily precipitation, making protecting your gutters — and, consequently, your yard and your home — even more valuable.

There are a number of benefits to getting gutter guards installed on your Belleville home. The clearest benefit is that putting gutter guards on your home reduces the need to clean your gutters. Although nothing can eliminate the need to clean your gutters, adding guards greatly reduces the amount of time you (or your local gutter service professionals) will need to spend on a ladder.
Some other benefits of having gutter guards include reduced gutter overflow, which reduces the risk of mold growth and water damage on your lawn and your house. Gutters that don't sit full of standing water are less at risk for premature rust or corrosion, which can in the long run save you money on repair and replacement. Covered gutters avoid becoming host to birds' nests and beehives, and avoid the buildup of debris that attracts insects such as roaches.
Gutter guards can be separated into six standard types, with varying levels of installation difficulty. Brush and foam guards are simpler to DIY; screen and mesh guards require more effort and should be installed by a professional; and micro-mesh and surface tension guards require professional installation.
All gutter guard types have their pros and cons, and the right kind for your house in Belleville will be determined by several factors. It is a good idea to speak with a local Belleville installer to learn more about the types of guards they offer and what kind is best for your specific needs.
You might find a range of prices for gutter guard installation in Illinois, but your specific price will be dependent on several details. The first one is whether you are installing everything yourself, working with a local contractor in Belleville, or hiring a full service gutter guard installation company that operates in Illinois. A full-service company will be more expensive but will provide more assistance with steps in the process like measuring your gutters and choosing a material. The material you choose and aspects of your home (such as the size of and ease of access to the gutter system) will also affect the final price.

You may be accustomed to tackling many projects yourself — you may have even installed the gutters on your Belleville home yourself — but gutter guard installation is a task best left to the professionals. A reputable Belleville gutter services company can help guarantee that the measuring work is all completely accurate and that you purchase exactly the right amount of materials. They are the experts in installing gutter guards and know how to do so quickly and safely, saving you time and stress. They can help recommend which type of guard you should use based on the specific details of your property. For some gutter guard types, such as screen, mesh, micro-mesh, and surface tension, getting professional installation is highly recommended or required.
We recommend selecting a company like LeafFilter, which has developed a patented three-piece 275-micron micromesh screen system that comes with a free inspection and estimate as well as full installation. Their system also comes with a lifetime transferable warranty.
Generally, gutter guards are an excellent investment for any household. They can help your home look nicer, cut down on how much you spend on cleaning and repairs, and help prolong the life of your gutters. They reduce the chances of mold and mildew growth and prevent your gutters from becoming a home for insects and birds. Additionally, when it comes time to move out of your current house, gutter guards can add extra value to your property when you put it on the market.
If you need to verify the reputation of a gutter guard installation professional, you can start by looking at online reviews, including on the BBB website. When it comes time to connect with one of Belleville's gutter guard installation companies, they should be able to provide a written estimate and a written explanation of their warranties. The company that you select should have insurance, in case a worker sustains an injury on your property, and they should provide you information about how their work will affect your roof warranty, if at all.
The price of gutter guards per linear foot will change based on the type of guards you end up choosing. See our table above to estimate the price of gutter guards based on the material you select and the size of your gutter system. Depending on the kind of guard you purchase, you may also have to factor in labor costs.
Often gutter guard installation companies will also clean your gutters, for an additional fee. You can find out if a company offers these services by communicating with them directly, or by seeing if they appear on our list of the best gutter service companies in Belleville.
Gutter guards will not totally eliminate the need to clean your gutters, but they can reduce how often you'll need to get out your ladder. Gutters without guards need a good cleaning between two and six times yearly — the precise frequency depends on the tree coverage in your yard. When you invest in gutter guards, that number could go down to once a year or less.
