No one enjoys cleaning their gutters, a task which can be very time-consuming and occasionally dangerous. However, failing to keep your gutters clean can cause many problems. Undisturbed gutters can over time become host to bees and birds, and debris-filled gutters can become food for roaches. Stagnant water sitting in your gutters can encourage growth of mold and mildew, and clogged gutters may overflow, resulting in water damage to your lawn and home.
If you live in a town like Lakeside — which is in the top 68.7% percentile for average daily precipitation — keeping your gutters protected is even more important, as your gutters work hard to keep your house safe and dry.
In order to assist you in the process, we've put together a list of the best gutter guard installation companies in the Lakeside area to help you pick the best rain gutter services company for you.

There are a number of benefits to getting gutter guards installed on your Lakeside home. The most obvious benefit is that having gutter guards installed on your home cuts down on the need to clean your gutters. Although no device can eliminate the need to clean your gutters, adding gutter guards greatly cuts down on the amount of time that you (or your local gutter service company) have to spend on a ladder.
Other benefits of gutter guards include reduced gutter overflow, which reduces the risk of water damage and mold growth on your lawn and your house. Gutters that don't sit full of standing water are less prone to premature corrosion or rust, which will save you money on repair and replacement services. Gutters that are covered also avoid becoming home to beehives and birds' nests, and avoid the debris accumulation that attracts insects such as roaches.
There are six primary types of gutter guards. Foam and brush guards are easy to install yourself; screen and mesh guards can be installed yourself, but preferably should be professionally installed; and micro-mesh and surface tension guards will always require professional installation.
Every type of guard has its pros and cons, and the best type for your Lakeside home will be determined by a number of factors. It is in your best interest to contact one or more local Lakeside gutter guard installation companies to learn about what types of guards they offer, and which are best for your house.
The price of gutter installation in Lakeside will depend on some of the details of your property — things like the size of your home and the accessibility of your gutter system. The final price will also be influenced by the kind of gutter guard you go with, as the price per linear foot will vary based on the material. Finally, the total cost will change based on whether you are installing the guards yourself, employing one of Lakeside's local contractors, or hiring one of the full-service gutter guard installers operating in Virginia. The more you pay, the more guidance the company will provide on the steps of the process, including measuring your gutter system and selecting a guard material.
The best way to determine the total cost of your project is to speak to at least one of the gutter guard service providers from our list to ask for a free inspection and estimate.

You might feel comfortable taking on many projects on your own — you may have even installed your Lakeside home's gutter system on your own — but gutter guard installation is a task best left to the professionals. If you are planning to install screen, mesh, surface tension, or micro-mesh gutter guards, then hiring a professional to complete the installation will be highly recommended or required. Your Lakeside gutter services company can also assist with measuring your gutters to make sure that you don't under- or over-purchase materials. If you are having a hard time deciding what style of gutter guards are best for your house, they can recommend a few types based on the details of your project.

Gutter guards save you money and time that you'd normally invest in gutter cleaning and repairs, prolong the life of your gutters, and make your home look nicer. Guards can help to stop your gutter from turning into a home for pests like birds and insects and reduce the risk of mold or mildew growth. They can also add value when it comes time to sell your house. Overall, gutter guards are a great home investment.
If you would like to verify the reputation of a gutter guard installation professional, you can begin by looking at reviews online, including via the BBB. When it comes time to speak to one of Lakeside's gutter guard installation companies directly, they should be able to provide a written estimate and a copy of their warranties. The company that you select should have insurance, in case a worker sustains an injury on your property, and they should be able to explain how their work will or will not affect your roof warranty.
The cost per linear foot for gutter guards will depend on the type of guards that you end up choosing. Refer back to our table above to estimate the price of gutter guards based on the size of your gutter system and the material you pick. Depending on the type of guard you want, you may also have to factor in labor costs.
Often gutter guard installation companies will also clean your gutters, for an additional fee. You can learn whether a specific company offers these services by calling them, or by seeing if they made it onto our list of the best gutter service companies around Lakeside.
Many full-service gutter guard installation professionals offer a lifetime transferable warranty for their products. This will not only protect you if your guards fail, but the warranty is transferable to any homeowner after you and adds value to your property when it comes time to sell it.
