Gutter Cover Installation: The Ultimate Guide

Homeowners everywhere are becoming more and more frustrated by the debris that falls into their gutters and clogs the entire system. This leads to a DIY gutter cleaning every few weeks (if not sooner).

Fortunately, there’s a solution to your problem. Something that can save you from ever going up into the gutter to unclog it ever again. By receiving gutter cover installation, you’ll help your gutters last years longer.

See below for an in-depth guide on gutter guard systems to inform yourself before you buy. Be sure to schedule the right installation company to ensure it lasts for a long time to come.

What Is a Gutter Guard System?

Have you noticed that water is spewing over the sides of your gutter whenever it starts to rain significantly? Have your gutters started to sag or warp over the past few months or years? If so, it’s a sign that you’re dealing with a heavy amount of debris.

This could be things such as tree branches, leaves, tree thistles, trash bags, old shingles, and other things you wouldn’t believe.

Not only does that debris cause you the hassle of cleaning it out every few weeks, but it can also take a toll on your gutter system overall.

A gutter guard system is used to blog your system from getting debris caught in it, helping you avoid a clogged gutter. They merely block the debris from getting into your gutters until nature decides to blow them away.

How Does the Process Work? 

Before your gutter cover installation can begin, there are a few integral steps to ensuring you get the right system for your needs. See below for the three simple steps that will get you the gutter guard you need in no time.

1. In-House Estimate

The type of gutter guard system you need depends on a variety of different factors. It depends on the size of your house, the shape of your house, how many trees are on your property, your personal preference on size and color, etc.

You’ll want to begin the process by reaching out to a trusted gutter guard installation company to schedule a time for them to visit. Be sure to find the right service for the job before scheduling an appointment.

From there, the service will come out and take a look at your property. You can tell them about the type of debris you often find in your gutters, where it comes from, and so forth.

After they take a walk around your property and assess the situation, they can give you an estimate on how much the installation will cost. That way, you’ll get the highest return on your investment, not having to pay to get an estimate on your home.

2. Schedule the Installation

Once you have a firm idea of the gutter cover installation’s price and time frame, it’s time to schedule the installation for your home.

The installation process itself is relatively quick and completely non-invasive. Workers will conduct the entire installation from outside, never having to step foot in your home for any reason. 

In fact, it’s so efficient that you should only expect the installation to take half a day for them to complete. 

After they’re completely finished, the service will remove all trash and unused materials from the premises and give the new gutter guard system a once-over cleaning before they head out.

From then on, you’ll be able to have more peace of mind knowing that your gutter guard system is ensuring the optimal production of your gutters. No more water overflowing off the sides. No more worrying about foundational issues from the water.

Find a Reputable Warranty

As with any form of labor, there’s always a potential that the gutter guard system fails to work as planned. It could be something with the way the system was installed or the way the materials in the system were manufactured.

For that reason, it’s always important to find a company with a warranty. In fact, make sure you get a warranty from both the installation company as well as the manufacturer of the gutter cover system.

Midwest Gutter Guard comes with a 20-year warranty for their services. You’ll never have to worry about whether or not the installer will come through for you if there’s a mishap down the line.

What Is the Cost of Gutter Cover Installation?

The cost of the gutter cover installation depends on a variety of different factors. For example, you can either choose from 5-inch, 6-inch, or 7-inch gutters, and the one you pick determines the price.

It also depends on the size of your house or business building and how much altering needs to be done to the system in order to fit your roof like a glove. 

Be sure to start by creating a budget to give yourself some accountability when negotiating with the gutter cover company. A reputable gutter guard installation company will be willing to accommodate you as much as they possibly can on price.
