Cleaning gutters is a time-consuming — and sometimes dangerous — task, and it likely does not make anyone's list of 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 home and yard. Additionally, gutters full of debris can attract pests like cockroaches — not to mention the fact that unattended gutters can become host to beehives or birds' nests.
If your house is somewhere that can get a lot of rain — and Jackson absolutely qualifies, as it sits in the 96.5% percentile in terms of average daily precipitation — then having well-protected gutters becomes even more important, as they need to do more work than gutters on an average house.

Installing gutter guards on your house in Jackson can provide both short- and long-term benefits. The most obvious benefit is that putting gutter guards 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 you (or your local gutter service technicians) will have to spend on a ladder.
Other 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 make nests in gutters, as well as roaches and other insects that are attracted to gutter debris. Unblocked, free-flowing gutters are also at less of a risk of rusting or corroding prematurely, saving you money on repair and replacement.
There are six standard types of gutter guards: foam, brush, screen, mesh, surface tension, and micro-mesh. The first four can be installed 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 always require professional installation.
There are pros and cons to every type of guard, and the type you choose to go with for your Jackson home will depend on several factors. Consider getting in touch with a local Jackson gutter guard installer to ask about different types and decide which is best for your house.
The total cost of installing gutter guards in Jackson varies based on a handful of factors, such as the size of your house and the accessibility of your gutters. The kind of gutter guards you select will also affect how much you pay, as the cost per linear foot of material varies. Another thing that will affect the cost is whether you do everything yourself, hire a local contractor in Jackson, or hire one of Mississippi's full-service gutter companies. Doing everything on your own is the cheapest option. Using a full-service company will be the most expensive but will offer the most support with tasks like measuring your gutters and picking a material.
The best way to get a rough idea of the cost of your project is to speak to one or two of the gutter guard service providers from our list above to ask for a free inspection and estimate. You can also see our table below to explore specific price ranges for the different styles of gutter guard materials. Keep in mind that these estimates are not a guarantee of prices in Jackson, and they do not take into account labor costs.

There might be certain home projects that you are comfortable taking care of yourself, but it is always best to enlist professional guidance when it comes to installing gutter guards on your Jackson home. If you know you want to choose a specific type of gutter guard — including mesh, screen, surface tension, or micro-mesh guards — hiring a professional to install them may be required or highly recommended. If you are unsure, a local Jackson gutter services professional can assist you with selecting the optimal gutter guard type for you. They can help you measure your gutters, reducing your final cost by stopping you from over-purchasing materials. They can also install your guards safely and speedily, saving you time and headache.

Gutter guards save you time and money spent on gutter cleaning and repairs, help your gutters last longer, and improve your home's appearance. They are particularly important in a place like Jackson, which has a good deal of rain. Guards can help to keep your gutter system from turning into a home for pests such as birds and insects and reduce the risk of mold or mildew growth. They can also add value to your house when it comes time to sell it. Overall, gutter guards are a smart home investment.
Reviews that you can find online, including those on the BBB website, are a good place to start when you want to learn about the reputation of a gutter guard installation company in Jackson. The gutter services company that you ultimately choose should be able to provide information on how installation does or does not affect your roof warranty, and after they have completed an inspection they should be able to produce a written estimate. They should also have on hand written information about their warranties and have proof of insurance, in case of the unlikely event that someone sustains an injury while on your property.
Different gutter guard types cost different amounts per linear foot. Refer back to our table above to estimate the price of gutter guards based on the size of your gutter system and the material you pick. You may also have to account for the cost of labor if you purchase certain guard types.
For a gutter overhaul, your smartest course of action is to contact multiple companies in your area to ask about their services and get an estimated cost. It is a good idea to contact two or more companies from our list to ensure that they offer the services you need and to compare prices for your project. You can also check and see if a company appears on our guide to the best gutter service providers in Jackson to learn what other kinds of services they may offer.
Some companies will remove your old gutter guards at the same time that they install new ones. Not every company offers both services, and the best way to ensure that your gutters are in the best shape possible is to call one or more of the companies on our list to find out about what specific services they offer.
Although no device can entirely eliminate the need to clean your gutters, gutter guards are able to greatly reduce the frequency with which you have to perform this chore. Normally, gutters need between two and six cleanings annually, depending on the tree coverage around your home, but by investing in the right kind of gutter guards, you can lower that to once a year or less.
