Gutter cleaning is a time-consuming — and sometimes dangerous — task, and one that likely does not make the list of anyone's favorite chores. Neglecting your gutters, however, can cause even greater problems down the line. Blocked gutters can overflow, encouraging the growth of mold and mildew and causing runoff damage to your home and your yard. An unattended gutter can be an appealing home for bees and birds, and a gutter full of debris may attract roaches.
If you live somewhere that can get a lot of rain — and Ballenger Creek qualifies, as it sits in the 68.2% percentile in terms of average daily precipitation — then protecting your gutters becomes even more important, because they work harder than gutters on your typical home.
To help everything go smoothly, we've assembled a comprehensive list of local gutter service companies around Ballenger Creek who can help you to install gutter guards that work as they should and last a long time.

Having gutter guards installed on your Ballenger Creek home can provide both short- and long-term benefits. Most importantly, gutter guards decrease how much time you spend on cleaning your gutters. There is no device that will eliminate the need for cleaning, but adding gutter guards lets you spend less time on this task (or less money on a gutter services professional).
Additionally, gutter guards can help to keep away pests. Well-protected gutters avoid becoming home to birds' nests and beehives, and preventing buildup of debris also helps keep away roaches and other pests that like to eat gutter waste. Guards also reduce the risk of mold growth and water damage and mitigate the chance of your gutters corroding or rusting prematurely, saving you money in the future on repair and replacement.
There are typically six types of gutter guards: foam, brush, mesh, screen, surface tension, and micro-mesh. The first four can be installed by yourself (although screen and mesh are usually more difficult and should generally be professionally installed), while micro-mesh and surface tension guards always require professional installation.
Each gutter guard type has its upsides and downsides, and the best type for your house in Ballenger Creek will be determined by several factors. Speak with one of Ballenger Creek's local gutter guard installation companies to find out about which types of guards they offer and which type is best for you.
