A gutter full of debris can attract roaches, and gutters full of water can cause the growth of mildew and mold.

There are a myriad of benefits to installing gutter guards on your Pontiac home. The most obvious benefit is that putting gutter guards on your home lessens the need for gutter cleaning. While nothing can eliminate the need for gutter cleaning, adding gutter guards greatly lessens the amount of time you (or your local gutter service technicians) will need to spend on a ladder.
Additional benefits of gutter guards include reducing the chance of water damage to your home and property and keeping pests away — including bees and birds that may nest in your gutters, and roaches and other insects that are attracted to gutter debris. Unobstructed, free-flowing gutters are also less likely to rust and corrode prematurely, which will save you money 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 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 gutter guards must always be professionally installed.
Each gutter guard type has its own pros and cons. The best type for your Pontiac home will be decided by several factors. It is in your best interest to speak with one or more local Pontiac gutter guard installers to find out which types of guards they offer, and which are best for your house.
The price you pay for gutter guard installation in Pontiac will be influenced by several factors. First is the kind of gutter guards you have chosen — different materials have various prices per linear foot. Next you will need to decide whether you would prefer to install the guards yourself, to hire a local Pontiac contractor, or to hire one of Michigan's full-service installers. A full-service company will offer more guidance in terms of choosing a guard type and measuring your gutters. Finally, there are the specific aspects of your home, including the size of your house and ease of access to your gutter system.
The best way to determine the cost of your gutter project is to communicate with at least one of the gutter guard service providers from our above list to ask for a free inspection and estimate.

Reviews online, including those on the BBB website, are an excellent place to start when you're trying to find more about the reputation of a Pontiac gutter guard installation company. When you speak with the gutter services professional directly, they should be able to clearly state how the work that needs to be done will or will not affect your roof warranty, and after an inspection they should be able to give you a written estimate. The company should also be able to produce written information about their warranties and provide proof of insurance, in case of the unlikely event that there is an injury on your property.

Although there is no device that can entirely eliminate the need for gutter cleaning, gutter guards can greatly reduce the frequency with which you have to perform this chore. Typically, gutters need a good cleaning two to six times a year, depending on how much tree coverage your yard has, but if you invest in the right kind of gutter guards, you can lower that to once a year or less.
