The time and risks taken in the process of gutter cleaning make the job unappealing for many homeowners. However, neglecting gutter cleaning can lead to many problems. Undisturbed gutters can become home to bees and birds, and debris-filled gutters can become food for roaches. Water stagnating in your gutters can encourage growth of mildew and mold, and clogged gutters can overflow, causing water damage to your home and yard.
While it may be that certain types of gutter guards you can install on your own, going with a local La Crosse gutter guard installer will guarantee that the job is done correctly the first time.

By investing the money and time into adding gutter guards, you and your La Crosse property will reap the benefits for years to come. Primarily, gutter guards lessen how much time is spent on gutter cleaning. There is nothing that will eliminate the need to clean your gutters, but with gutter guards you will spend less time on this task (or less money hiring a gutter services company).
Other benefits of gutter guards include keeping pests away — including bees and birds that nest in gutters, as well as 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, which in the long run will save you money on repair and replacement.
There are six primary types of gutter guards. Brush and foam guards are easy to install by yourself; mesh and screen guards can be installed on your own, but in most cases should be done by a professional; and micro-mesh and surface tension guards always require installation by a professional.
Every type of gutter guard has its pros and cons, and the best type for your La Crosse home will be based on several factors. It is a good idea to speak with a local La Crosse installation company to find out about what types of guards they offer and which kind is best for your house.
The cost of gutter guard installation in La Crosse will depend on several factors. First, the kind of gutter guards you are choosing — 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 hire a local La Crosse contractor, or to hire one of Wisconsin's full-service installation companies. A full-service company can offer more guidance when it comes to choosing a guard type and measuring your house's gutter system. Lastly, there are the unique details of your property, such as the size of your house and how easy it is to access your gutter system.

Overall, gutter guards are a good investment for any household. They can help prolong your gutter system's lifespan, cut down on how much you spend on cleaning and repairs, and help your property look nicer. They lessen the chances of mold and mildew growth and keep your gutters from becoming home to birds and insects. In addition, when it is time to move to a new home, gutter guards can add value to your property when you put it on the market.
Reviews that you can find online, including those on the BBB website, are an excellent place to begin when you want to learn about the reputation of a La Crosse gutter guard installation company. A reliable gutter services professional should be able to clearly state how their methods do or do not affect your roof warranty, and after an inspection they should be able to provide an estimate in writing. Your technician should also have on hand information about their warranty policy in writing and provide proof of insurance, in case of the unlikely event that there is an injury while on your property.
The gutter guard price per linear foot will be dependent on the style of guards you decide on. Scroll up to view our table above to estimate the amount you will pay for gutter guards based on the size of your gutter system and the material you select. Depending on the kind of guard you purchase, you may need to also factor in labor costs.
Often gutter guard installation companies will also provide cleaning, for an added cost. You can determine if a company provides these services by contacting them directly, or by checking if they made our list of top gutter service companies in La Crosse.
Certain full-service gutter guard installation companies offer a lifetime transferable warranty for their products. Not only will this protect you should your guards fail, but the warranty is transferable to your home's next owner and adds value to your home when it comes time to sell it.
