Nobody enjoys cleaning their gutters, a job which can be extremely time-consuming and sometimes dangerous. However, failing to keep your gutters clean can lead to many problems. Undisturbed gutters can become home to bees and birds, and debris left sitting in gutters can become food for roaches. Gutters full of stagnant water can encourage growth of mold and mildew, and obstructed gutters might overflow, resulting in water damage to your lawn and home.
While it may be that certain types of gutter guards can be installed on your own, calling a local Greenfield gutter guard installer will make sure that the job gets completed correctly the first time.

When you decide to install gutter guards on your house in Greenfield, you add to its value and gain many long- and short-term benefits. Cutting down on the time you spend cleaning your house's gutters is the main reason many purchase gutter guards. Gutter guards — or any other device — won't eliminate the need to clean your gutters on occasion, but they can significantly cut down on the time you spend on this chore, or the amount you spend on hiring professional gutter services.
Some other benefits of installing gutter guards include less gutter overflow, which puts you at less of a risk for mold growth and water damage on your house and lawn. Gutters without standing water are less likely to rust or corrode prematurely, which will over time save you money on repair and replacement. Gutters that are covered avoid becoming home to beehives and birds' nests, and avoid the debris buildup that attracts roaches and other pests.
There are six primary types of gutter guards. Brush and foam guards are easy to install on your own; screen and mesh guards can be installed on your own, but preferably should be professionally installed; and micro-mesh and surface tension guards always require professional installation.
Every gutter guard type has its own pros and cons — the best type for your home in Greenfield will be decided by a number of factors. It is a smart idea to reach out to one or more of Greenfield's local gutter guard installation companies to discover what types of guards are available, and which are best for your job.
The price you pay for gutter guard installation in Greenfield will be based on several factors. First, the kind of gutter guards you are going with — different materials will have different costs per linear foot. Next you will need to decide whether you would prefer to install the guards on your own, to employ a local Greenfield contractor, or to hire one of Wisconsin's full-service companies. A full-service company can provide more guidance in terms of choosing a guard type and measuring your gutter system. Last but not least, there are the unique aspects of your home, including the size of your house and how easy it is to access the gutter system.

Gutter guards can help you save time and money spent on gutter cleaning and repairs, prolong the life of your gutters, and improve the look of your home. Guards can help stop your gutter from turning into a home for pests like bugs and birds and mitigate the risk of mildew or mold growth. They can also add value when it comes time to sell your house. Overall, gutter guards are an excellent investment for your home.
If you are looking to verify the reliability of a gutter guard installation professional, one place to start is by looking at reviews online, including on the BBB website. When you speak to one of Greenfield's gutter guard installation companies directly, they should be able to provide, following their inspection, a written estimate and written explanation of their warranties. The company that you choose should have insurance, in case of an injury on your property, and they should be able to articulate how their processes will or will not affect your roof warranty.
Different gutter guards will cost different amounts per linear foot. See our table above to estimate the price of gutter guards based on the material you choose and the size of your gutter system. You might also need to account for the cost of labor with certain types of guard.
If you want to do a gutter overhaul, it is in your best interest to contact multiple companies in your area to inquire about their services and get an approximate price. It is a good idea to contact at least one of the companies from our list to verify that they provide what you need and to compare prices. You can also look for a company on our guide to the top gutter service providers in Greenfield to get a feel for what other types of services they may offer.
Certain full-service gutter guard installers have a lifetime transferable warranty for their products. Not only will this protect you if the gutter guards fail, but the warranty is able to be transferred to subsequent homeowners and adds value to your home should you choose to sell it.
No device can completely eliminate the need to clean your gutters, but gutter guards reduce how many times a year you'll need to get up on a ladder. Uncovered gutters need to be cleaned between two and six times yearly — the exact number depends on your property's tree coverage. When you invest in gutter guards, you could reduce that number to once a year or less.
