Nobody looks forward to cleaning their gutters, a task which can take a lot of time and occasionally be dangerous. However, leaving your gutters unattended can cause a host of problems. Undisturbed gutters can become home to bees and birds, and debris left sitting in gutters can become food for roaches. Stagnant water sitting in your gutters can grow mildew and mold, and obstructed gutters can overflow, resulting in water damage to your yard and home.
New Albany is in the top 76.9% percentile for average daily precipitation, which makes protecting your gutters — and, as a result, your home and yard — even more valuable.
To help the job go well, we've assembled a high-quality list of the best gutter service professionals in New Albany who can assist you in installing gutter guards that work well and have a long life.

Getting gutter guards installed on your New Albany home comes with both short- and long-term benefits. The clearest benefit is that having gutter guards installed on your home reduces the need for gutter cleaning. Although no device can eliminate the need for gutter cleaning, adding gutter guards greatly reduces the amount of time you (or your local gutter service company) have to spend on a ladder.
Some other 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 nest in gutters, as well as roaches and other insects that eat gutter debris. Unobstructed, free-flowing gutters are also less likely to rust and corrode prematurely, saving you money on repair and replacement.
There are six common types of gutter guards. Foam and brush guards are easy to install on your own; mesh and screen guards can be installed by yourself, but preferably should be professionally installed; and micro-mesh and surface tension guards will always need professional installation.
All of the different gutter guard types have different benefits and drawbacks. The one that is best for your home in New Albany will be based on your needs. The best way to come to a decision is to get in touch with one or more of New Albany's local gutter guard professionals to ask them about which types of guards they carry and figure out which one is best for your needs.
The final cost of gutter guard installation in New Albany will vary based on a number of factors, such as the size of your home and how accessible your gutters are. The type of gutter guards you pick will also influence how much you pay, as the cost per linear foot of material varies. Another thing that will affect the cost is whether you go the DIY route, employ a local contractor in New Albany, or hire one of Indiana's several full-service gutter companies. Going the DIY route is the cheapest option, while going with a full-service company will be the most expensive but also offer the most support when it comes to jobs like measuring your gutters and choosing a material.
To more precisely estimate the cost of gutter guards for your home, reach out to at least one of the gutter guard service companies from our list above and ask about getting a free inspection and estimate. You can also see our table below to explore specific price ranges for different kinds of gutter guard materials.

If you are planning to install screen, mesh, micro-mesh, or surface tension gutter guards, then hiring a professional to complete the installation will be strongly recommended or required. A local New Albany gutter services installer can also assist with measuring your gutter system to make sure that you don't over- or under-purchase materials.

Gutter guards save you time and money that you'd normally invest in gutter cleaning and repairs, prolong your gutter system's lifespan, and improve the look of your home. They are particularly important in a place like New Albany, which sees a good amount of rain. Guards can help stop your gutter from becoming home to pests like insects and birds and they lower the risk of mold or mildew growth. They can also add value to your home if you decide to sell. Overall, gutter guards are an excellent home investment.
Reviews online, including those posted on the BBB site, are a great place to start when it comes to verifying the reputation of a New Albany gutter guard installation professional. A reliable gutter services professional should be able to provide information on how their methods do or do not affect your roof warranty, and after an inspection they should be able to provide a written estimate. Your technician should also provide you with written information about their warranty policy and provide evidence of insurance, in case of the unlikely event that there is an injury on your property.
The gutter guard cost per linear foot will change based on the type of guards you select. Scroll up to view our table above to estimate the cost of gutter guards based on the size of your gutter system and the material you pick. Depending on the style of guard you choose, you may need to also factor in labor costs.
Often gutter guard installation companies also clean your gutters, for an additional fee. You can learn whether a specific company offers this service by calling them, or by checking if they made it onto our list of the best gutter service companies in New Albany.
While there is no device that can completely eliminate the need to clean your gutters, gutter guards can noticeably cut down on how often you have to complete this task. Typically, gutters need to be cleaned between two and six times annually, depending on how much tree coverage your yard has, but if you invest in the right kind of gutter guards, you can lower that to once a year or less.
