The time and risks taken during the chore of gutter cleaning make the job unappealing for many homeowners. However, leaving your gutters unattended can lead to a host of problems. Undisturbed gutters can over time become host to bees and birds, and debris left sitting in gutters can become food for roaches. Gutters full of stagnant water can grow mold and mildew, and blocked gutters might overflow, resulting in water damage to your home and yard.

The cost of gutter guards in Austin may be one of your concerns, but there are many choices available, and many gutter service companies that can offer something that fits your budget.

How to choose the best gutter guards in Austin


The benefits of gutter guards

There are many benefits to getting gutter guards installed on your house in Austin. The first and most obvious benefit is that having gutter guards installed on your home lessens the need to clean your gutters. Although nothing can eliminate the need to clean your gutters, adding guards greatly lessens the amount of time you (or your local gutter service technicians) will need to spend on a ladder.

In addition, gutter guards will reduce the risk of gutters getting blocked and overflowing, which will go a long way towards preventing water damage and mold growth on your house and lawn. Gutters that are protected are also less likely to rust and corrode prematurely, helping you save on repair and replacement costs. Lastly, covered gutters are less likely to become home to birds' nests and beehives, and gutters that don't accumulate debris are less likely to attract insect pests such as roaches.

Different types of gutter guards

There are generally six types of gutter guards: foam, brush, mesh, screen, surface tension, and micro-mesh. The first four can be installed yourself (although mesh and screen tend to be more difficult and should usually be professionally installed), while micro-mesh and surface tension gutter guards always need professional installation.

Each gutter guard type has its upsides and downsides, and the best type for your house in Austin will be determined by several factors. Reach out to one of Austin's local gutter guard installers to find out about which types of guards they install and what type is best for you.

How expensive are gutter guards?

Gutter guard cost

The price of gutter installation in Austin depends first on some of the specific details of your property, for example the size of your home and the ease of accessing your gutters. The amount you'll pay will also be a product of the variety of gutter guard you select, as the price per linear foot does vary based on the material. Finally, the final cost will depend on whether you are installing the guards on your own, hiring one of the local contractors around Austin, or hiring a full-service gutter guard installer that operates in Texas. The more you spend on gutter services, the more guidance you will receive on certain steps of the process like measuring your gutters and selecting a guard material.

To more precisely estimate how much you will spend on gutter guards for your home, reach out to one or two of the gutter guard service providers from the list above and ask about getting a free inspection and estimate. You can also see our table below to find specific price ranges for different types of gutter guard materials. Note that these estimates are not a guarantee of prices in Austin, and do not account for labor costs.

Cost by material

Gutter guard material Cost per foot of material Cost for typical home Total cost including labor
Brush $4.52 - $12.34 $1130-$3085 $2,395 - $4,350
Foam $1.92 - $3.52 $480-$880 $1,745 - $2,145
Screen $0.38 - $1.38 $95-$345 $1,360 - $1,610
Mesh $0.82 - $2.7 $205 - $687 $1,470 - $1,952

Should you install your Austin gutter guards alone or hire a company?

You may be accustomed to tackling many projects yourself — you may even have installed the gutters on your Austin home yourself — but gutter guard installation is a task best left to the professionals. If you know you are going to go with a specific style of gutter guard — including screen, mesh, surface tension, or micro-mesh guards — professional installation may be required or strongly recommended. If you are unsure, one of Austin's local gutter service companies can aid you in selecting the optimal gutter guard type for you. Your local experts can help you measure your gutter system, keeping costs down by stopping you from over-purchasing materials. They will also be able to install your gutter guards quickly and safely, saving you time and stress.

We recommend choosing a company like LeafFilter, which has developed a patented three-piece 275-micron micromesh screen system that comes with a free inspection and estimate as well as full installation. Their system also has a lifetime transferable warranty.

Frequently asked questions for gutter services


Is it worth investing in gutter guards for my home?

Gutter guards will save you money and time you would normally spend on gutter cleaning and repairs, prolong the life of your gutters, and improve your home's appearance. Guards can help to stop your gutter from becoming home to pests like bugs and birds and lower the risk of mold or mildew growth. They can also add value to your home when it comes time to sell it. Overall, gutter guards are a great investment for your home.


How can I know I am choosing the best gutter guard company in Austin?

Reviews that you can find online, including those through the BBB, are a good place to begin when you're looking to verify the reputation of a gutter guard installation company in Austin. The gutter services company that you ultimately choose should be able to clearly state how the work that needs to be done will or will not affect your roof warranty, and post-inspection they should be able to give you an estimate in writing. They should also supply you with written information about their warranties and be able to provide proof of insurance, in case of the unlikely event that one of their employees sustains an injury while on your property.


What kinds of gutter guards are the least expensive? Which are the most expensive?

Different gutter guard styles have different costs per linear foot. 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. You might also have to account for labor costs with certain styles of guard.

Are there companies around the Austin area that I can hire to install both gutters and gutter guards at the same time?

There are many companies that can install both your gutters and your gutter guards. The best way to learn which companies offer both services and get an approximate cost is by speaking with them directly. (You should also look and see if they are on our list of best gutter service companies around Austin.) It is a smart idea to contact two or more of the companies on our above list to ask about what services they offer and compare prices if you need this type of gutter overhaul.

If I currently have gutter guards on my Austin home, can my technician remove them and put up new ones?

There are companies that will remove your old gutter guards along with installing new ones. Not every company offers both services; the best way to ensure that your gutters get the care they need is to reach out to one or more of the companies on our above list to learn about what specific services they provide.
