Having to clean your gutters several times every year can be a big headache, from the time needed to the safety risks incurred when getting on a ladder. Neglecting the upkeep of your gutters, however, can result in even bigger problems down the line. Clogged gutters can overflow, can encourage mold and mildew growth, and can cause runoff damage to your home and yard. An untouched gutter can be an appealing home for bees and birds, and a debris-filled gutter may attract roaches.
Oxford is in the top 56.8% percentile in the country when it comes to average daily precipitation, making the need to protect your gutters — and, as a result, your home and yard — even more important.
To help you with completing the job quickly and effectively, we've compiled a list of reputable gutter guard installation professionals around the Oxford area.

By investing your time and money into adding gutter guards, you and your Oxford home will reap the benefits for years to come. The first and most obvious benefit is that having gutter guards installed on your home reduces the need to clean your gutters. While no device can eliminate the need for gutter cleaning, adding guards greatly reduces the amount of time that you (or your local gutter service professionals) will need 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 may nest in your gutters, in addition to roaches and other insects that feed on gutter debris. Unobstructed, free-flowing gutters are also at less risk for premature rust or corrosion, which in the long run will save you money on repair and replacement.
There are six main types of gutter guards. Brush and foam guards are easy to install yourself; mesh and screen guards can be installed by yourself, but generally should be professionally installed; and micro-mesh and surface tension guards will always need installation by a professional.
Each gutter guard type has its upsides and downsides, and the best type for your Oxford home will be based on several factors. Reach out to one of Oxford's local gutter guard installation companies to find out about what types of guards they carry and what type is best for your house.
The price of gutter installation in Oxford depends first on some of the unique features of your property, such as the size of your house and the ease of accessing your gutters. The amount you'll pay will also be a product of the variety of gutter guard you pick, as the price per linear foot varies based on the material. Last but not least, the final cost will change based on whether you are installing the guards on your own, hiring a local contractor from Oxford, or hiring one of the full-service gutter guard installers who operates in Ohio. The more you invest, the more guidance the company will provide on the steps of the process such as measuring your gutter system and selecting a guard material.

There may be some home projects that you are comfortable taking care of on your own, but it is always best to have professional guidance when it comes to installing gutter guards on your Oxford home. When you sign a contract with a professional Oxford gutter services company, they can help with deciding which gutter guards are best for your specific property, and can assist with measuring to determine how many linear feet you are going to need. This makes sure you get the right type and amount of materials and avoid under- or over-purchasing. Your local gutter services professional will also save you time and hassle by using their expertise to install your gutter guards efficiently and safely. If you select certain styles of gutter guards, such as mesh, screen, surface tension, or micro-mesh, then hiring a professional to do the installation is required or strongly recommended.
One particular gutter guard company that we highly recommend to assist with installation is LeafFilter. Their patented three-piece 275-micron micromesh screen system benefits from a free estimate, a complete installation, and a lifetime transferable warranty.
Generally, gutter guards are a smart investment for any home. They can prolong the life of your gutters, improve your home's overall appearance, and save you money on cleaning and repairs. They lower the risk of mold and mildew growth and keep your gutters from becoming home to pests like insects and birds. Additionally, when it is time to move out of your current house, gutter guards can add extra value to your property when you put it on the market.
If you would like to verify the legitimacy of a gutter guard installation company, one place to start is by looking at online reviews, including on the BBB website. When you connect with a Oxford gutter guard installation company, they should be able to provide a written estimate and information about their warranties. A trustworthy company should have insurance, in case there is an injury on your property, and they should provide you information about how their processes will or will not affect the warranty on your roof.
Different gutter guard materials have different costs per linear foot. Refer back to 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. You might also have to account for labor costs with certain guard types.
Oftentimes gutter guard companies will perform gutter cleaning services for an additional fee. To know if a company offers this service, you can locate them on our list of best gutter service companies in Oxford, and reach out to them directly to ask about additional services that they offer.
There are some gutter guard companies that provide removal of old gutter guards and installation of new ones as a package deal. It is a good idea to communicate with one or more of the companies from our list above to learn if they provide both services.
While there is no device that can entirely eliminate the need to clean your gutters, gutter guards are able to noticeably cut down on how often you have to complete this task. Uncovered gutters need a good cleaning two to six times yearly, depending on how much tree coverage your yard has, but by installing the right kind of gutter guards, you can cut that down to once a year or less.
