Are Gutter Guards Worth the Investment?

Are they worth it? Here are some things to consider:

Location and Surroundings

If your home is surrounded by trees that shed leaves, pine needles, or other debris, gutter guards can be beneficial. If you do not have a canopy of trees above your roof, homeowners will get less of a return on the investment.

Maintenance Icon


Gutter guards can reduce the frequency of gutter cleaning, but they’re not maintenance-free. Some types of guards may still require occasional cleaning or maintenance themselves.


Gutter guards come in a range of prices, depending on the material and quality. Consider the upfront cost of professional installation (typical range between $1000 and $5000) against the potential savings of hiring a company that provides gutter cleaning services.

Gutter guards can be seen as an added feature when selling your home. They demonstrate proactive maintenance and can be attractive to potential buyers who want to avoid gutter-related issues.

Gutter guards can be a worthwhile investment for some homeowners. However, it’s essential to weigh the costs and benefits before making the investment.
