Cleaning gutters is a time-consuming and sometimes dangerous task, and one that likely does not make the list of anyone's favorite chores. However, if you fail to keep your gutters clean, you could find yourself facing all manner of problems. Blocked gutters can cause mold, mildew, and water damage to your yard and home, and gutters full of debris can attract pests such as cockroaches — not to mention that an unattended gutter system can quickly become home to beehives or birds' nests.
Oxford is in the top 79% percentile in the country when it comes to tree coverage, and this makes gutter guards an even better investment in Oxford than in many other locations.

Installing gutter guards on your Oxford home can offer both long- and short-term benefits. The most obvious benefit is that having gutter guards installed on your home cuts down on the need for gutter cleaning. While there is nothing that can eliminate the need for gutter cleaning, adding guards greatly cuts down on the amount of time you (or your local gutter service technicians) need to spend on a ladder.
In addition, gutter guards can help to keep pests away. Gutters that are well protected avoid becoming home to birds' nests and beehives, and reducing debris buildup also helps keep away roaches and other pests that eat gutter waste. Guards also decrease the risk of mold growth and water damage and mitigate the likelihood of your gutters corroding or rusting prematurely, saving you money in the long run on repair and replacement.
There are typically six types of gutter guards: foam, brush, screen, mesh, micro-mesh, and surface tension. The first four can be installed by yourself (although screen and mesh are usually more difficult and in the majority of cases should be professionally installed), while micro-mesh and surface tension guards must always be professionally installed.
All types of gutter guards have their upsides and downsides, and the best type for your Oxford home will be decided by several factors. Speak with a local Oxford installer to hear more about the types of guards they carry and what kind is best for your house.
The cost of gutter guard installation in Oxford will depend on several factors. The first variable is the type of gutter guards you are going with — different materials will have different costs per linear foot. Next is whether you are installing the guards yourself, hiring a local Oxford contractor, or hiring one of the full-service installers operating in Michigan. A full-service company will provide more guidance when you are choosing a gutter guard type and measuring your house's gutter system. Last but not least, there are the unique aspects of your job, including the size of your house and ease of access to the gutter system.

If you want to verify the legitimacy of a gutter guard installation company, you can begin by looking at online reviews, including via the BBB. When it comes time to speak to one of Oxford's gutter guard installation companies directly, they should be able to provide, after an inspection, a written estimate and information about their warranties. A reliable company should have insurance, in case there is an injury on your property, and they should be able to explain how the work to be done will or will not affect the warranty on your roof.
The cost per linear foot for gutter guards will vary based on the style of guards you choose.

If you want to do a gutter overhaul, you'll want to contact multiple companies in your area to find out about their services and get an approximate price.

You can also look for a company on our guide to the top gutter service providers in Oxford to discover what other services they may offer.
The style of gutter guard that you will want for your gutter system will depend on several factors, including the types of trees on your property, what the weather is typically like in your region of Michigan, whether it matters to you if the guards are visible from the ground, and the amount you would like to spend. Hiring a local gutter services professional will help you figure out the best style of gutter guard for your needs.
Many full-service gutter guard installers offer lifetime warranties, which are beneficial in both the long and short term. A warranty protects you if your gutter guards fail, and it adds value to your home when you're ready to sell, due to the warranty's transferable nature.
