Gutter cleaning is a time-consuming — and occasionally dangerous — task, and likely does not make the list of anyone's favorite chores. However, leaving your gutters unattended 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. Water stagnating in your gutters can encourage growth of mildew and mold, and obstructed gutters may overflow, causing water damage to your lawn and home.
Although some gutter guards can be installed yourself, you might be concerned about the difficulty of the work and how long your guards will last — in this case, hiring a local Milwaukee gutter guard installer will likely be your best bet.

By investing the money and time into adding gutter guards, you and your Milwaukee property will reap the benefits for many years. Decreasing the time you need to spend cleaning your home's gutters is the most important reason consumers purchase gutter guards. Gutter guards — or any other device — won't eliminate the need for gutter cleaning on occasion, but they can greatly cut down on the time you spend on this task, or the money you spend on hiring a gutter services professional.
In addition, gutter guards can lower the risk of gutters becoming clogged and overflowing, preventing mold growth and water damage to your lawn and house. Well-protected gutters are also less vulnerable to premature corrosion and rust, which can help you save on repair and replacement. Last but not least, gutters that are covered are less likely to become home to birds' nests and beehives, and gutters without debris are less likely to attract insects like roaches.
In general, gutter guards can be broken down into six types, and placed in tiers based on how easy it is to install them yourself. Brush and foam guards are the easiest to do yourself, while screen and mesh guards are in the middle and should be installed by professionals. Surface tension and micro-mesh guards require professional installation.
There are pros and cons to each type of guard, and the variety you choose to go with for your Milwaukee home will be a product of several factors. Consider getting in touch with a local Milwaukee gutter guard installation company to inquire about different types and figure out which is best for you.
The cost of gutter guard installation in Milwaukee will be determined by several factors. First, the type of gutter guards you have selected — different materials have various prices per linear foot. Next you must decide whether you'll install the guards on your own, hire a local Milwaukee contractor, or hire one of the full-service installers in Wisconsin. A full-service company can offer more guidance when you are choosing a gutter guard type and measuring your house's gutter system. Last but not least, there are the unique aspects of your job, such as the size of your house and the accessibility of the gutter system.
The easiest way to get a rough idea of the cost of your project is to speak to several of the gutter guard service providers from the above list to ask about a free inspection and estimate. You can also use our table below to determine specific price ranges for various kinds of gutter guard materials.

You may feel comfortable taking on many home projects yourself — you may even have installed the gutter system on your Milwaukee home yourself — but gutter guard installation is best done by the professionals. If you know that you are going to select a specific type of gutter guard — including mesh, screen, surface tension, or micro-mesh guards — getting professional installation done may be required or highly recommended. If you are feeling indecisive, one of Milwaukee's local gutter service professionals can assist you with selecting the optimal gutter guard type for your home. They can help you measure your gutter system, keeping costs down by protecting you from over-purchasing materials. They will also be able to install the guards safely and speedily, saving you time and stress.
One particular gutter services company that we highly recommend to assist with installation is LeafFilter. The company's patented three-piece 275-micron micromesh screen system comes with a free estimate, a full installation, and a lifetime transferable warranty.
Gutter guards can help you save time and money you would normally spend on gutter cleaning and repairs, prolong your gutter system's lifespan, and make your home look nicer. Guards can help keep your gutter from becoming home to pests such as birds and insects and they reduce the risk of mold or mildew growth. They can also add value when it comes time to sell your home. Overall, gutter guards are a smart home investment.
Online reviews, including those posted on the BBB site, are an excellent place to start when you want to learn about the reputation of a gutter guard installer in Milwaukee. The gutter services company that you ultimately choose should be able to describe how their work will or will not affect your roof warranty, and post-inspection they should be able to produce a written estimate. Your technician should also supply you with written information about their warranty policy and have proof of insurance, in case of the unlikely event that one of their employees sustains an injury on your property.
Different gutter guard styles have different costs per linear foot. See our table above to estimate the amount you will pay for gutter guards based on the material and the size of your gutter system. You might also need to account for labor costs with certain guard styles.
