When you install gutter guards on your house in Westerville, you add to its value and secure many long- and short-term benefits. First, gutter guards decrease the amount of time spent on gutter cleaning. There is nothing that will eliminate the need to clean your gutters, but adding gutter guards helps you spend less time on this task, or less money hiring a gutter services professional.
Some other benefits of gutter guards include keeping pests away — including bees and birds that may nest in your 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, smooth-flowing gutters are also at less risk for premature rust or corrosion, which will save you money on repair and replacement.
Overall, gutter guards can be broken down into six types, and placed in tiers based on how easy they are to DIY. Foam and brush guards are the easiest to do yourself, while screen and mesh guards are in the middle and typically should be installed by professionals. Micro-mesh and surface tension guards require professional installation.
Different types of gutter guards have different benefits and drawbacks — which one is best for your Westerville home will be based on your needs. The fastest way to make a decision is to talk with one or more of Westerville's local gutter guard installers to inquire about what types of guards they offer and identify which one is best for your needs.
