Gutter Guards? Yes or No??

The Decision to Buy Gutter Guards: It’s Not as Simple as You Might Think.

Deciding if you should buy gutter guards is one homeowners must consider. The decision should be based on the total expense involved with not only having guards installed but their cleaning, maintenance, and upkeep as well. Given that gutter guard systems can cost upwards of $10 per linear foot and require maintenance (including gutter cleaning) it is wise for homeowners to consider all the facts before jumping into a purchasing decision.

Since our whole job here at Ultimate Gutter Cleaning Pakenham is to clean out dirty gutters, homeowners sometimes ask me “Should I buy gutter guards?” There have been quite a few times that I have discussed this with a homeowner who realized that her gutters were clogged, but just couldn’t understand why since “the gutter guards were supposed to make sure that never happened.”

I don’t know of any gutter protection system that promises that your gutters will never have to be cleaned again, but that is still the underlying assumption most homeowners have.

Gutter Guards Only Delay Gutter Cleaning, It Still Has To Be Done.

At best, most gutter guards will only delay the amount of time you can spare in between gutter cleanings. For example, you may be able to go from having them cleaned twice a year to once a year, but they will still have to be cleaned nonetheless.

I asked some of my fellow gutter cleaners in kew, and Boronia about their experiences cleaning gutters with guard systems, and the responses boiled down to two main points:

All gutters will have to be cleaned eventually, even if they have guards.Gutters with guards will probably cost more to clean since there is extra work involved in removing and reinstalling the guards.
