Gutter cleaning is a time-consuming — and sometimes dangerous — task, and one that likely does not make anyone's list of favorite chores. However, gutters that are left neglected can contribute to many problems. A debris-filled gutter might attract roaches, and gutters full of water can cause the growth of mold and mildew. Gutters that are left undisturbed can become home to birds' nests and beehives, and obstructed ones can overflow, causing water damage to your home and yard.
In a town like Liberty, Missouri, which is in the top 69% percentile in terms of tree coverage, gutter protection is even more important than in other areas.

Installing gutter guards on your Liberty home offers both long- and short-term benefits. The clearest benefit is that having gutter guards installed on your home reduces the need to clean your gutters. Although no device can eliminate the need to clean your gutters, adding gutter guards greatly reduces the amount of time that you (or your local gutter service company) have to spend on a ladder.
Additionally, gutter guards will decrease the risk of gutters getting blocked and overflowing, helping to prevent mold growth and water damage to your lawn and house. Protected gutters are also less likely to corrode and rust prematurely, which can help you save on repair and replacement costs. Finally, covered gutters avoid becoming home to birds' nests and beehives, and clean, empty gutters are less likely to attract roaches and other insects.
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 typically should be installed by professionals. Surface tension and micro-mesh guards require professional installation.
Every type of gutter guard has its own benefits and drawbacks — the best type for your house in Liberty will be determined by several factors. It is in your best interest to get in touch with one or more local Liberty gutter guard installation companies to find out what types of guards are available, and which are best for your job.
The price of gutter guard installation in Liberty will be the product of several factors. First, the kind of gutter guards you are choosing — different materials will have different costs per linear foot. Next is whether you'll install the guards on your own, hire a local Liberty contractor, or hire one of the full-service installers in Missouri. A full-service company will provide more guidance in terms of choosing a gutter guard type and measuring your home's gutters. Finally, there are the specific details of your property, including the size of your house and the accessibility of the gutter system.
Speaking with one or more companies from our list of gutter service professionals and asking for a free inspection and estimate is the easiest way to get a rough idea of how much your gutter guard installation will cost. You can also take a look at our table below to determine specific price ranges for the various kinds of gutter guard materials.

You may be accustomed to tackling many home projects yourself — you may have even installed your Liberty home's gutter system yourself — but gutter guard installation is a job that should be undertaken by the professionals. If you know you want to install a specific style of gutter guard — including mesh, screen, micro-mesh, or surface tension guards — professional installation may be required or strongly recommended. If you are unsure, a local gutter service company from Liberty can assist you with selecting the optimal gutter guard type for your house. They can assist with measuring your gutter system, which will save you money by preventing over-purchasing of materials. They will also be able to install the gutter guards efficiently and safely, saving you time and headache.
One specific company that we highly recommend to handle the installation is LeafFilter. Their patented three-piece 275-micron micromesh screen system benefits from a free estimate, a full-service installation, and a lifetime transferable warranty.
Gutter guards help you save money and time that you'd normally invest in gutter cleaning and repairs, help your gutters last longer, and make your home look nicer. They can help to stop your gutter from turning into a home for pests like birds and bugs 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 an excellent home investment.
If you want to verify the reputation of a gutter guard installation professional, you can start by looking at reviews online, including on the BBB website. When it comes time to connect with one of Liberty's gutter guard installation companies, they should be able to provide a written estimate and written explanation of their warranties. The company that you pick should have insurance, in case there is an injury on your property, and they should be able to articulate how the work they need to do will affect your roof warranty, if at all.
The gutter guard price per linear foot will vary based on the type of guards you select. Take a look at our table above to estimate the amount you will pay for gutter guards based on the size of your gutter system and the material you pick. Depending on the type of guard you want, you may need to also factor in labor costs.
There are a number of companies that will install both your gutters and your gutter guards. The fastest way to determine if a company offers this service and get an estimated price is by contacting them directly. (You can also look and see if they made our list of Liberty's best gutter service companies.) It is a smart idea to contact at least two of the companies on our above list to ask about services and compare prices if you're looking for this type of gutter overhaul.
No device will totally eliminate the need to clean your gutters, but gutter guards can reduce how often you'll need to climb a ladder. Uncovered gutters need a good cleaning between two and six times annually, depending on your property's tree coverage. When you invest in gutter guards, you could reduce that number to once a year or less.
