How much do gutter guards cost?

Gutter guards are an investment in your home. Like any other investment, they may take some time to show their full value. However, during a severe storm when the rain flows smoothly into your gutters, you’ll be glad that you installed gutter guards. Avoid injuries from standing on a ladder and avoid damage to your home caused by overflowing gutters: gutter guards are the ultimate in preventative medicine for your home.

How Much Does it Cost to Add DIY Gutter Guards?

If you want to cover your gutters, there are many options on the market. The least expensive option is a mesh screen. These screens are designed to capture sticks, leaves, and other large debris before it lands in your gutters. However, you do need to clean them over time, since you need to remove the accumulated debris. This means you’ll either need to do this yourself or hire a gutter cleaner for an additional cost. These DIY options cost between $0.50 and $10 per linear foot, depending on the quality of the gutter cover you purchase.

Get a professional installer to add gutter guards to your home to ensure that they will work effectively.

How Much Does It Cost to Have Gutter Guards Installed?

When you’re looking at the cost of gutter guards, every home is different. A single-story home with newer gutters will cost less than a home that needs full gutter replacement and has multiple stories and corners. The quality of the gutter guard you choose also changes the price of the product. A foam insert or wire mesh screen costs less than a surface tension gutter cover, but it is also less effective. Some systems like surface tension gutter systems should be installed by professionals so that you know that they will work effectively to protect your home. For a professionally-installed system, you are usually looking at various options ranging from $30-$50+ per linear foot depending on your home configuration.

There are many benefits to having gutter guards installed on your home. You know that those who install your guards are experienced and understand how to install your gutter guards so that they work effectively for years to come. When you install gutter guards, ensure that workmanship will be covered so that if anything goes wrong, you can get your money back.

The cost of gutter filters, screens, and guards is much less expensive than the cost of repairs to your home.

The Cost of Avoiding Gutter Guards

What happens if you have gutters without gutter guards? There are many costs to clogged gutters. They include:

  • Gutter cleaning costs. At several hundred dollars a year, these cleaning costs add up over time.
  • Gutter replacement. Gutters that are full of leaves become warped and sag. They need to be replaced, usually at the tune of more than a thousand dollars.
  • Damage to your foundation. When water leaks down the side of your building, it can cause the foundation to shift and crack. Foundation repairs often cost more than $10,000.

I recently had the Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet installed on my house. It not only looks amazing, but the guys arrived on time, were professional and efficiently got the job done. I am very satisfied with Gutter Helmet's attention to detail and fulfilling their work as promised. I will definitely tell my neighbors about the Gutter Helmet.
I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.
Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!
VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.
We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
We just had Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters and couldn't be happier. They provided us with useful information about Gutter Helmet and cleaned up everything, leaving no mess behind. We definitely recommend Gutter Helmet to anyone considering this product.
