How Does the Competition Measure Up?
Gutter Guard Comparisons
Purchasing gutter guards is a critical investment into the health of your home, as well as your own personal safety. As such, you want to be diligent in your search to ensure you’re going to get the maximum value out of your investment.
While supposedly “low-cost” options may seem attractive at first glance, due diligence usually shows that going cheap is almost never the best option for any significant investment. In fact, these low-cost options may end up doing more harm than good in the long run.
In the chart below, we highlight some of the advantages and disadvantages of various types of gutter guard systems on the market today.
Gutters play a vital role in protecting the foundation of your home from water damage. However, when they get clogged with debris, they can actually do more harm than good. So while this one may seem pretty self-explanatory, that fact is most homes are still without gutter protection. That’s why we can’t emphasize enough the importance of gutter protection. Not only does investing in the right gutter guard give you the peace of mind that your gutters are protected from clogs
This issue with screen gutter guards is the large holes that still allow debris to enter your gutter. Worse yet, cheaply made options often get brittle and break, collapsing into your gutter and causing a whole mess of problems. On top of that, these do-it-yourself gutter guards don’t come with a strong warranty and their installation methods can often do more damage than they hope to contain.
While foam gutter guards are easy to install; that’s about all the benefits you’ll receive from them. While they may fill up the space of the gutter so no debris can get in, they also make it difficult for water to pass through effectively. Worse yet, when these foam guards get saturated with water, they’ll often grow mold, mildew, and even provide an opportunity for plants to grow!
These DIY installation gutter guards are exactly as their name describes. They are brushes that sit inside your gutter in an attempt to keep debris out. However, the debris often gets stuck in the bristles instead! As the debris piles up, water often bypasses the gutter itself and fall to the ground beneath it, causing serious damage over time.
While we believe micro mesh gutter guards are the best choice on the market, not every system is created equally. In fact, one of the major problems with most micro mesh gutter guards is that leaves and debris tend to get caught on the mesh. This means you still have to get on a ladder to clean them off! That sort of defeats the purpose, doesn’t it?
