Cleaning gutters is a time-consuming — and occasionally dangerous — task, and one that likely does not make the list of anyone's favorite chores. However, unattended gutters can contribute to many problems. A gutter that is full of debris may attract roaches, and gutters full of water can lead to mold and mildew growth. Undisturbed gutters can become home to birds' nests and beehives, and ones that are clogged can overflow, causing water damage to your yard and home.
If you live someplace that gets a lot of rain — and Baton Rouge absolutely qualifies, as it sits in the 98.2% percentile for average daily precipitation — then keeping your gutters protected becomes even more important, because they do more work than gutters on a typical home.

When you install gutter guards on your house in Baton Rouge, you increase its value and gain many short- and long-term benefits. Cutting down on the time you have to spend cleaning your home's gutters is the main reason consumers purchase gutter guards. Gutter guards — or any device — won't eliminate the need for gutter cleaning on occasion, but they can greatly decrease the time you spend on this chore, or the money you spend on hiring a professional gutter services company.
Additionally, gutter guards can help keep pests away. Gutters that are well protected avoid becoming home to beehives and birds' nests, and reducing debris buildup also helps discourage roaches and other pests that feed on gutter waste. Guards also lessen the risk of water damage and mold growth and mitigate the chance of your gutters corroding or rusting prematurely, saving you money in the future on repair and replacement.
There are generally six types of gutter guards: foam, brush, screen, mesh, surface tension, and micro-mesh. The first four can be installed on your own (although mesh and screen are more difficult and in the majority of cases should be professionally installed), while surface tension and micro-mesh gutter guards always require professional installation.
All gutter guard types have their pros and cons, and the best kind for your house in Baton Rouge will be based on several factors. Get in touch with a local Baton Rouge installation company to hear more about what types of guards they install and what kind is best for your house.
The cost of gutter guard installation in Baton Rouge will be based on several factors.

A full-service company can give you more guidance when you are choosing a gutter guard type and measuring your home's gutters. Last but not least, there are the unique aspects of your property, including the size of your house and how easy it is to access the gutter system.

Gutter guards save you time and money you would normally spend on gutter cleaning and repairs, help your gutters last longer, and improve your home's appearance. They are particularly valuable in a place like Baton Rouge, which has a good amount of rain. They can help prevent your gutter from turning into a home for pests such as insects and birds and they lower the risk of mildew or mold growth. They can also add value to your house when it comes time to sell it. Overall, gutter guards are a great home investment.
Online reviews, including those on the BBB website, are an excellent place to begin when it comes to verifying the reputation of a Baton Rouge gutter guard installation professional. The gutter services company that you ultimately choose should be able to describe how their work will or will not affect your roof warranty, and after an inspection they should be able to produce a written estimate. They should also have on hand information about their warranty policy in writing and be able to provide proof of insurance, in case of the unlikely event that someone sustains an injury while on your property.
Different gutter guards will cost different amounts per linear foot. Refer back to our table above to estimate the cost of gutter guards based on the material and the size of your gutter system. You might also have to account for labor costs with certain types of guard.
