Gutters are basic and inexpensive considering how important they are: protecting much more valuable parts of your home. Gutters keep rain off the siding, windows, porch, deck and basement, directing it away from your foundation.
That means, anything that protects your gutters and helps them function more efficiently is a smart investment as well.
Gutter guards are a low cost product you can install on any type of gutters, and they serve as a protective screen for your gutters so large debris and animals won’t get inside of them. Buying gutter guards can be a money-saving decision that you’ll thank yourself for year after year.
There are several styles of gutter guard. The type you choose to install will depend on your budget and the type of rain gutters you have. Gutter guards are made of aluminum, nylon or plastic.

Typically, gutter guards cost around as much per linear foot as the gutters themselves. In the long run, you’re going to save a lot of time and money installing them. Here are a few of the reasons we think you should install gutter guards on your house:
Improve Drainage by Preventing Clogs – Gutter guards help keep leaves and most debris out of your gutters. Otherwise big pieces of debris settle in the gutter first, then small pieces of debris collect around them. Of all the different gutter guard styles, all of them block these larger pieces of debris from becoming stuck to begin with.
Reduce Mold & Mildew Growth – Gutter guards allow water to flow through the gutters quickly because it is unhindered by large debris or leaves. Rain is one of the primary causes of mold and mildew growth, so moving the water faster through the gutters reduces the time rain remains sitting still, leading to mold and mildew.
Prevent Pests from Nesting – Keeping squirrels, chipmunks, birds and insects out of rain gutters and off the roof can be an endless struggle. Every style of gutter guard prevents animals from building nests inside of the gutter. A lot of homeowners decide to install gutter guards just for this reason.
Gutter Cleaning Less Often – Gutter guards have to be removed to clean the gutters, but if they are installed, this project doesn’t have to be done nearly as frequently. Leaf guards can cut down the frequency that you have to clean out the gutters – or or hire a company to do the job for you – so that you might only have to have them cleaned out once a year.
Protection From Fires – A typical way fires spread to homes is when embers fall into gutters where there is dry debris. This debris fuels the fire until it becomes too large and damages the roof, followed by the rest of the house. A simple gutter guard installation can protect your home from the risk of fire.
Prevent Ice Dams – If you happen to live in an area that gets below-freezing temperatures, snow and sleet, you’ll be interested to know that gutter guards help stop snow and ice from staying up on your roof. Their designs purposefully redirect melting ice and snow to get it off your roof much faster.
These are all issues that affect hundreds of thousands of American homes every year. Gutter guards protect an important system that protects the rest of your house. If you’ve never thought about installing them before, it may be time to think about it.
As you can see, there are a lot of benefits of gutter guards. While it may be tempting to run out and install the type you think will work best – how much different could they be, right? – you still have to install them properly. In the end, you’re much better off having a professional gutter guard installation company do the project for you.
Not only will professional installation be more reliable than your DIY work, but a gutter guard service and installer is going to be able to suggest the best type of gutter system for your house in the first place. They know all of the choices, and they will consider each factor when making their recommendation.
Here are some of the things a gutter guard company will think about when recommending the best gutter guards for your home:
Material – Gutter guards are made of aluminum, plastic, foam or a handful of different materials. Some are designed for temporary use and others are built to last just as long as your gutters. The construction plays a key factor in how long gutter guards will last.
Installation method – The only style of gutter guards we would suggest for a homeowner to install themselves is the drop in kind that do not require any fastening to the gutters. However, these are not as dependable. Installing other types, including snap-in and screw-on gutter guards, could destroy your gutters if they are not installed the right way.
Appearance – A lot of gutter guards offer a low profile so they cannot be seen from ground level, while some styles are very obvious. If this is an important requirement, you are limited on the style of gutter guard you can have, and limited even more by the style of gutters you have. If it is important for you to have low profile gutter guards, it might be necessary to purchase new gutters too.
Warranty – Some gutter guard styles will come with a short manufacturer’s warranty, however most of the aluminum types are guaranteed for at least 10-20 years. By hiring a licensed gutter guard installation company in Concord (instead of doing it yourself), you won’t void the warranty. Gutter guards should never lift your shingles, nor should their installation void your roof’s warranty.
Another great thing about having Classic Concord Gutters install your gutter guards is that we’ll come back and repair them free of charge if there is any issue related to the installation.
Your budget is, of course, the last factor in choosing which gutter guards you will have installed. We offer a range of options for all budgets, and will provide the benefits listed above, to one degree or another.
