Cleaning gutters is a time-consuming — and occasionally dangerous — task, and it 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 sorts of problems. Blocked gutters can lead to mold, mildew, and water damage to your home and yard. On top of that, gutters full of debris might attract pests like cockroaches — not to mention the fact that an unattended gutter system can quickly become home to birds' nests or beehives.
While some gutter guards can be installed on your own, hiring a local gutter guard installer in Southfield will make sure that the job gets done correctly the first time.
In order to assist you in the process, we've assembled a list of the top-rated gutter guard installers in and around Southfield to help you choose the right rain gutter services company for your project.

By investing money and time into adding gutter guards now, you and your Southfield property will reap the benefits for years to come. The clearest benefit is that having gutter guards installed on your home reduces the need to clean your gutters. Although there is nothing that can eliminate the need for gutter cleaning, adding guards greatly reduces the amount of time that you (or your local gutter service company) will have to spend on a ladder.
Other benefits of gutter guards include keeping pests away — including bees and birds that nest in gutters, in addition to roaches and other insects that are attracted to 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 will save you money on repair and replacement.
In general, gutter guards can be divided into six types, and sorted based on how easy it is to install them yourself. Foam and brush guards are the easiest to install on your own, while mesh and screen guards are in the middle and ought to be installed professionally. Surface tension and micro-mesh guards require professional installation.
There are upsides and downsides to every type of guard, and the type you select for your Southfield home will depend on a handful of factors. Speak with a local Southfield gutter guard installation company to understand more about different gutter guard types and determine which is best for your home.
