Nobody likes gutter cleaning, a task which can take a lot of time and occasionally be dangerous. However, neglecting gutter care can result in many problems. Undisturbed gutters make appealing homes for bees and birds, and gutters full of debris can become food for roaches. Stagnant water sitting in your gutters can grow mildew and mold, and blocked gutters may overflow, resulting in water damage to your yard and home.
You may have some anxiety about handling this kind of home project on your own. Your worries may be about installing your gutter guards the correct way, and about them having enough longevity to be worth the price. This is where one of Orange's gutter professionals comes in.
To assist you in the process, we've compiled a list of the best gutter guard professionals in and around the Orange area to help you find the perfect rain gutter services company for your job.
These are our top gutter guard companies in Orange based on reputation, services, and product quality
Getting gutter guards installed on your house in Orange offers both long- and short-term benefits. Primarily, gutter guards reduce how much time you will need to spend on gutter cleaning. Nothing will eliminate the need for cleaning, but with gutter guards you will spend less time on this task, or less money hiring a gutter services professional.
Additional benefits of gutter guards include keeping pests away — including bees and birds that make nests 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, free-flowing gutters are also at less risk for premature rust or corrosion, which will save you money on repair and replacement.
There are typically six types of gutter guards: brush, foam, screen, mesh, surface tension, and micro-mesh. The first four can be installed on your own (although mesh and screen tend to be more difficult and should generally be professionally installed), while micro-mesh and surface tension gutter guards always need to be installed by a professional.
Each type of guard has its own benefits and drawbacks — the best type for your house in Orange will be decided by multiple factors. It is a smart idea to contact one or more of Orange's local gutter guard installation companies to find out what types of guards they install, and which are best for your home.
The total cost of installing gutter guards in Orange will change based on multiple factors, including the size of your house and the accessibility of your gutters. The style of gutter guards you select will also have an effect on the price, as the cost per linear foot changes based on the material type. Another thing that will change the cost is whether you DIY your gutter guards, hire a local contractor in Orange, or hire one of Ohio's full-service gutter companies. Taking care of the job yourself is the cheapest option. Going with a full-service company will be the most expensive but also offer the most support during steps of the process such as measuring your gutters and selecting a material.
The best way to obtain a rough idea of the cost of your project is to reach out to one or more gutter guard service providers from our above list to inquire about a free inspection and estimate. You can also take a look at our table below to explore specific price ranges for the different styles of gutter guard materials.

Even if you are someone who is handy, adding gutter guards to the gutter system on your Orange home is one project that benefits from the assistance of a professional. If you are planning to install mesh, screen, surface tension, or micro-mesh gutter guards, then hiring a professional to complete the installation will be strongly recommended or often required. A local Orange gutter services professional can also aid with measuring your gutters to ensure that you don't under- or over-purchase materials. If you are having a hard time deciding what style of gutter guards are right for your house, a professional can make a recommendation based on the unique features of your property. Lastly, they work to install your guards quickly and safely, saving you time and headache.
One particular gutter services company that we highly recommend to assist with installation is LeafFilter. The company's patented three-piece 275-micron micromesh screen system benefits from a free estimate, a complete installation, and a lifetime transferable warranty.
Gutter guards will help you save time and money that you'd normally invest in gutter cleaning and repairs, prolong the life of your gutters, and improve your home's appearance. Guards can help prevent your gutter from becoming home to pests like bugs and birds and reduce the risk of mildew or mold growth. They can also add value when it comes time to sell your home. Overall, gutter guards are a smart investment.
Reviews online, including those through the BBB, are a good place to start when you're looking to verify the reputation of a Orange gutter guard installer. When you speak with the gutter services professional directly, they should be able to provide information on how their work will or will not affect your roof warranty, and post-inspection they should be able to produce a written estimate. Your technician should also be able to supply written information about their warranties and be able to provide proof of insurance, in case of the unlikely event that there is an injury on your property.
The gutter guard cost per linear foot will be dependent on the type of guards that you choose. Take a look at our table above to estimate the cost of gutter guards based on the material you choose and the size of your gutter system. Depending on the type of guard you want, you may also have to factor in labor costs.
There are certain companies that can install both your gutters and your gutter guards. The easiest way to determine if a company offers these services and get an estimated price is by contacting them directly. (You should also look and see if they are on our list of best gutter service companies around Orange.) We recommend contacting two or more of the companies on our above list to inquire about services and compare prices if this is the type of gutter overhaul you need.
Most full-service gutter guard installation companies offer lifetime warranties, which have both short- and long-term benefits. The warranty will protect you if your guards fail, and its transferable nature adds value to your property when you're ready to sell.
