How to Find the Best Gutter Guard Installation Companies Near You

There are three different kinds of gutter guards that are relatively simple for a skilled contractor to install. One type is a screen. This can be metal or fine-mesh screen that will filter out most of the debris that could fall into the downspout. A super-fine mesh is better for yards that have pine and cypress trees than a more open mesh for trees that don't shed as much. Curved gutter guards direct the flow of water into the gutter while directing debris away from the interior of the gutter. The curve has a pitch connected to the roof of a home to allow water to glide into the gutter. A brush or bristle gutter guard resembles a large, metal-tipped brush used in cleaning chimneys or dryer vents. It’s inserted into the gutter channel and blocks debris and leaves from entering. However, stray seeds could become lodged in the bristles, combine with debris and start to root into the gutter, which will cost you more in maintenance.

The type of guard you have installed, the materials and the labor will determine the installation costs. You should talk to a number of gutter contractors to find one who can do the job while fitting your budget. Here are some questions you should ask when interviewing gutter guard contractors near you: 

  1. How long have you been in gutter industry?
  2. Are you going to flush out the downspouts to clear any clogs?
  3. What are you going to do with the debris after you clean it?
  4. Are you licensed and insured?
  5. Will you provide a written estimate?
  6. What training do your contractors have?
  7. Do you have any references from other homeowners near me?
  8. What credentials do you have?
  9. Can you guarantee your work?
  10. Which type of gutter guard do you recommend?
