Things to Know When Shopping For Gutter Guards

26-101413-gs0026Of course you want your gutters to stay clean in order for them to work correctly, which is why you have thought of buying a gutter guard. But if you do an internet search, you realize that there are so many gutter guards available that vary not only in price but also appearance. The following are the three things to consider when shopping for a gutter guard.

  • Materials

Insist on a gutter guard that has been made of only the highest-quality materials. You may buy the type made using a transparent aluminum mesh that lets water seep through it but the problem is that in most cases, these types have vertical slots that tend to trap smaller debris. Other gutter covers have been made from sturdy plastic or metal, and these will give your guttering system enclosed appearance.

  • Installation

When it comes to gutter guards, you need to decide if you will need to contract a pro to install it for you or if you can tackle the installation. Good gutter guards will often include the cost of installation in their price quotes. However, you can still buy the materials only and then install it yourself, which is cheaper.

  • Guarantees

While many gutter guard companies often guarantee their work, it is important that you get to know just what the guarantee actually includes. Do not fall for companies that offer vague warranty coverage only on the durability of product. Make sure that the warranty also covers gutter guard installation.


When choosing the best gutter guard for you it is important that you assess your drainage and guttering needs in deciding the system. It is only at that juncture that you will be able to find the gutter guard that is best for you.
