Cleaning gutters is a time-consuming — and occasionally dangerous — task, and one that likely does not make anyone's list of favorite chores. However, neglected gutters can cause many problems. A gutter full of debris may attract roaches, and gutters full of water can cause the growth of mildew and mold. Gutters that sit undisturbed can become host to beehives and birds' nests, and blocked ones can overflow and cause water damage to your home and yard.
Lasalle is in the top 71% percentile in the country in terms of tree coverage, making gutter guards a better investment in Lasalle than in many other locations.

By investing the time and money into adding gutter guards now, you and your Lasalle home will reap the benefits for many years. Primarily, gutter guards reduce how much time is spent on cleaning your gutters. Nothing will eliminate the need to clean your gutters, but gutter guards will permit you to spend less time on this task (or less money hiring a gutter services company).
Additional benefits of gutter guards include reducing the chance of water damage to your home and property and keeping pests away — including bees and birds that may nest in your gutters, in addition to roaches and other insects that feed on gutter debris. Unclogged, smooth-flowing gutters are also less likely to rust and corrode prematurely, which in the long run will save you money on repair and replacement.
There are six common types of gutter guards: brush, foam, screen, mesh, micro-mesh, and surface tension. The first four can be installed on your own (although mesh and screen are usually more difficult and in the majority of cases should be professionally installed), while micro-mesh and surface tension guards must always be professionally installed.
All of the different kinds of gutter guards have different benefits and drawbacks — which one is best for your home in Lasalle will depend on the specifics of your situation. The fastest way to decide is to speak with one or more local Lasalle gutter guard professionals to inquire about what types of guards they offer and identify which one best matches your needs.
The cost of gutter installation in Lasalle will, first and foremost, be influenced by some of the unique features of your property, for example the size of your house and the accessibility of your gutters. The final price will also be influenced by the variety of guard you choose, as the price per linear foot does vary based on materials. Finally, the total cost will differ if you are installing the guards yourself, hiring one of Lasalle's local contractors, or going with one of the full-service gutter guard installers operating in Illinois. The more you spend on gutter services, the more guidance the company will provide on the steps of the process such as picking a guard material and measuring your gutters.
The easiest way to obtain a rough idea of the cost of your project is to get in touch with several of the gutter guard service providers from our list above to request a free inspection and estimate.

While there may be certain home projects that you are comfortable tackling on your own, it is always a smart idea to have professional guidance when installing gutter guards on your Lasalle home. If you are looking to install mesh, screen, micro-mesh, or surface tension gutter guards, then hiring a professional to do the installation will be highly recommended or often required. A Lasalle gutter services company can also help take measurements of your gutters to save you from the headache of under- or over-purchasing materials. If you are having a hard time deciding what kind of gutter guards are best for your house, a professional can recommend a type based on the specifics of your property. Finally, a gutter guard installation company works to install your guards safely and efficiently, which will save you time and headache.
One particular gutter services company that we highly recommend to help you with installation is LeafFilter. Their patented three-piece 275-micron micromesh screen system benefits from a free estimate, a complete installation, and a lifetime transferable warranty.
In general, gutter guards are a smart investment for any home. They can save you money on cleaning and repairs, improve your property's overall appearance, and prolong the life of your gutters. They lessen the risk of mold and mildew growth and keep your gutters from becoming host to insects and birds. In addition, when it comes time to move to a new home, gutter guards can add to the value of your property as you are trying to sell it.
If you would like to verify the reliability of a gutter guard installation professional, one place to start is by looking at reviews online, including via the BBB. When it comes time to connect with a Lasalle gutter guard installation company, they should be able to provide, after an inspection, a written estimate and information about their warranties. The company that you choose 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 the warranty on your roof, if it will at all.
The price per linear foot for gutter guards will change based on the type of guards that you select. Refer back to our table above to estimate the cost of gutter guards based on the size of your gutter system and the material you select. Depending on the kind of guard you purchase, you may also have to factor in labor costs.
There are some companies that handle the installation of both gutters and gutter guards. The best way to learn which companies offer both services and get an estimated price is by contacting them directly. (You should also look and see if they appear on our list of Lasalle's best gutter service companies.) It is a smart idea to contact two or more of the companies on our list to ask about what services they offer and compare prices if this is the type of gutter overhaul you need.
Gutter guards cannot eliminate the need for gutter cleaning, but they will reduce how many times a year you'll need to get up on a ladder. Gutters without guards need a good cleaning between two and six times yearly, although the frequency depends on the amount of tree coverage on your property. When you invest in gutter guards, that number could shrink to once a year or less.
