Nobody enjoys gutter cleaning, a task which can be extremely time-consuming and occasionally dangerous. Neglecting the upkeep of your gutters, however, can lead to even bigger problems in the future. Clogged gutters can overflow, can encourage the growth of mildew and mold, and can cause runoff damage to your home and yard. An untouched gutter can be an enticing home for bees and birds, and a debris-filled gutter might attract roaches.
If your house is someplace where there is a lot of rain — and Mauldin absolutely qualifies, as it sits in the 94.0% percentile for average daily precipitation — then keeping your gutters protected is increasingly important, as they have to do more work than gutters on a typical home.

By investing your money and time into adding gutter guards, you and your Mauldin property will reap the benefits for years to come. First, gutter guards cut down on the amount of time you will have to spend on gutter cleaning. No device will eliminate the need for cleaning, but adding gutter guards helps you spend less time on this task (or less money on a gutter services professional).
Some other benefits of gutter guards include keeping pests away — including bees and birds that make nests in gutters, and 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, saving you money on repair and replacement.
There are generally six types of gutter guards: brush, foam, screen, mesh, micro-mesh, and surface tension. The first four can be installed on your own (although mesh and screen are more difficult and in the majority of cases should be professionally installed), while micro-mesh and surface tension gutter guards must always be professionally installed.
All of the different kinds of gutter guards have different pros and cons — which one is best for your Mauldin home will be influenced by your needs. The fastest way to make a decision is to talk with one or more local Mauldin gutter guard professionals to ask which types of guards they install and figure out which one is best for your needs.
The price you pay for gutter guard installation in Mauldin will be the product of several factors. First, the variety of gutter guards you have selected — different materials cost different amounts per linear foot.

A full-service company will offer more guidance in terms of choosing a gutter guard type and measuring your gutters. Last but not least, there are the unique aspects of your property, including the size of your house and ease of access to the gutter system.

Gutter guards cannot eliminate the need to clean your gutters, but they will reduce how many times a year you need to climb a ladder. An uncovered gutter system needs to be cleaned between two and six times a year — the exact number depends on the tree coverage in your yard. If you invest enough into gutter guards, you could reduce that number to once a year or less.
