The time taken and risks assumed during gutter cleaning make it unappealing for most homeowners. Neglecting gutter upkeep, however, can lead to even more problems in the future. Clogged gutters can overflow, encouraging the growth of mildew and mold and causing runoff damage to your home and your yard. An untouched gutter can be an enticing home for bees and birds, and a debris-filled gutter can attract roaches.

Although some types of gutter guards can be installed on your own, you might have some anxiety about how much work it will take or how long the guards will last — in this case, finding a local Reno gutter guard installer will go a long way towards helping you feel better.

How to choose the best gutter guards in Reno


The benefits of gutter guards

There are several benefits to having gutter guards installed on your Reno home. Decreasing the time spent cleaning your gutters is the main reason many consumers purchase gutter guards. Gutter guards — or any device — won't get rid of the need for gutter cleaning on occasion, but they can greatly reduce the time you spend on this task, or the amount you spend on hiring professional gutter services.

In addition, gutter guards can help keep pests out. Gutters that are protected can avoid becoming home to pests such as bees and birds, and preventing buildup of debris also helps keep out roaches and other pests that feed on gutter waste. Guards also lessen the risk of mold growth and water damage and mitigate the likelihood of premature rust or corrosion on your gutters, which will save you money in the long run on repair and replacement.

Different types of gutter guards

Generally, gutter guards can be broken down into six types, and organized based on how easy it is to install them yourself. Foam and brush guards are the easiest to install on your own, while screen and mesh guards are in the middle and generally should be installed professionally. Surface tension and micro-mesh guards require professional installation.

Every type of gutter guard has its own pros and cons — the best type for your house in Reno will be decided by several factors. It is a good idea to contact one or more of Reno's local gutter guard installers to discover what types of guards they offer, and which are best for you.
