Why Install Gutter Guards?
Gutters are effective at directing rainwater away from your home, but unfortunately, it’s easy for them to get clogged with leaves, pine needles, animal nests and other debris—even old tennis balls or dog toys! Gutters are particularly prone to clogging in the fall and spring.
To prevent these clogs, gutter guards are an effective solution.
Are Gutter Guards Worth It?
Gutter guards and leaf screens are specially engineered to help prevent clogs by keeping out debris without blocking water flow.
When debris gets caught in your gutters, it can lead to all kinds of problems, which could include:
- Gutter damage (including gutter systems that become loose or detached from the house)
- Roof damage
- Damage to exterior walls, insulation, and drywall
- Basement flooding
- Foundation staining
- Mold and mildew growth
- Flower bed erosion and other landscaping problems
- And more
These problems can be time-consuming and costly to fix, but gutter guards can help keep your gutters clean and free of debris!

Types of Gutter Guards and Their Features
What are the best gutter guards? It depends on how heavily-treed your property is and what type of trees they are.
Some gutter covers work better against hardwood leaves while others do a better job keeping pine/conifer needles out of your gutters.
Here are the types with their individual pros and cons:
Plastic PVC screen gutter guards: ($.20-$.40/ft.) These are the cheapest in quality, not just in price. They’re produced in rolls of flexible plastic with width options of 5” to 7” and ranging in length from 15’ to 30’. They can be cut to length with a utility knife or similar tool.
The guards lay on top of the gutters and can be tucked under the eave or drip edge. There are typically no fasteners used.
Pros: Inexpensive and easy to install, strong enough not to collapse under wet leaves
Cons: Cheap, strong wind, ice and large twigs can move them out of place, they might warp in very hot weather and become brittle in sunny climates and where hot/cold weather cycles are common
Best for: Both leaves and needles
Durability: Expect about 3 years in harsh climates and up to 6 years in temperate climates
