Getting gutter guards installed on your Hamtramck home offers both long- and short-term benefits. The biggest benefit is that putting gutter guards on your home cuts down on the need to clean your gutters. Although nothing can eliminate the need to clean your gutters, adding gutter guards greatly cuts down on the amount of time that you (or your local gutter service company) need to spend on a ladder.
Additionally, gutter guards can help to keep pests away. Gutters that are protected can avoid becoming home to beehives and birds' nests, and avoiding debris accumulation also helps discourage roaches and other pests that eat gutter waste. Guards also reduce the risk of water damage and mold growth and mitigate the chance of premature rust or corrosion on your gutters, which will save you money in the future on repair and replacement.
In general, gutter guards can be split into six types, and separated based on how easy they are to DIY. Brush and foam guards are the easiest to install on your own, while mesh and screen guards are in the middle and ought to be installed professionally.

The fastest way to make a decision is to talk with one or more of Hamtramck's local gutter guard installers to ask what types of guards they install and figure out which one is best for your needs.
