By investing time and money into adding gutter guards now, you and your Fenton property will reap the benefits well into the future. The first and most obvious benefit is that having gutter guards installed on your home lessens the need to clean your gutters. Although there is nothing that can eliminate the need for gutter cleaning, adding gutter guards greatly lessens the amount of time you (or your local gutter service company) will need to spend on a ladder.
Additional benefits of gutter guards include keeping pests away — including bees and birds that make nests in gutters, in addition to roaches and other insects that feed on gutter debris — and reducing the chance of water damage to your home and property. Unobstructed, 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 main types of gutter guards. Brush and foam guards are easy to install by yourself; mesh and screen guards can be installed by yourself, but generally should be done by a professional; and micro-mesh and surface tension guards always require installation by a professional.
Each type of guard has its own benefits and drawbacks. The best type for your Fenton home will be based on several factors. It is a smart idea to speak with one or more local Fenton gutter guard installation companies to find out which types of guards they offer, and which are best for your house.
