Before buying the best gutter guard system for your home, make sure to take the following into consideration.
Most quality gutter guards will come with a warranty and so does your roof. Typically a roof can have a lifespan of 20-50 years. Micro mesh gutter guards are the most resistant ones and can come with a warranty of a few years. Foam and brush gutter guards on the other hand are usually not sold with a warranty.
A quality gutter guard will require professional installation. These are the reverse curved gutters guards or the micro mesh ones. Other temporary guards can just be placed as screens over the gutter, and they can become a DIY project.
Measure your gutters before buying gutter guards as they are not a one-size-fits-all system. Most gutter guards are 6 inches but 7-inch gutters are also present in areas with a lot of rain.
Last but not least, appearance plays a big role in deciding which gutter guard to pick. You want the guards to match the gutters as well as the facade and style of the house. As such, choose the right material that matches everything. Gutter guards come in foam, plastic, aluminum, steel, and copper. Most micro mesh gutter guards are not visible from the ground while foam ones can be quite disruptive to the facade.
The best gutter guards are made of stainless steel or aluminum. They are more durable as well as appealing. While their price might be higher, these systems also require less maintenance which makes them a good choice financially too.
