Guard Styles

Compare Popular Gutter Guard Styles .

  • For years, helmet-style reverse-curve gutter guards were the standard in gutter protection. However, modern screen, mesh, and micro-mesh guards are extremely popular for their cost and quality.
  • Quality gutter guards keep your gutters flowing smoothly, ensuring water flows away from your home and preventing water damage.
  • While brush and foam gutter guards are available at home improvement stores, most gutter protection companies do not offer them. They are significantly less effective than other gutter leaf guards and typically only last a few years.
  • Explore the types of gutter guards to see what is the best fit for your budget and your home. The prices below include material and installation costs

Screen Gutter Guards

Made from perforated metal sheets, they allow water to flow through the holes while blocking debris. Ranging from $3 to $8 per linear foot, they are most effective on large leaves but can allow pine needles, pollen, and dirt into your gutters. They will last 8 to 16 years, depending on the materials involved and the exact type and style. Screen guards are great for areas with high rainfalls and severe storms, but they will need more frequent cleanings than other styles.

Mesh Gutter Guards

If the water overflows the gutter and pours along your foundation, you definitely have a problem. Usually caused by gutter clogs, it prevents rainwater from flowing smoothly. Overflowing gutters can lead to several other problems that reduce the lifespan of your gutters.Mesh guards are similar to screens, but the holes are smaller. With an average cost of $4 to $10 per linear foot, they offer better protection against pine needles and other debris. However, dirt and pollen can still get through in some cases. The overall durability depends on the materials used, but most mesh guards last 8 to 18 years. They work great in areas with high rainfalls and storms, especially if you have a lot of pine needles or pollen in the air.

Mico-Mesh Gutter Guards

One of the most effective gutter guards on the market today, micro-mesh is a finely woven material that blocks out almost all leaves, needles, pollen, dirt, and more. Micro-mesh gutter guards cost between $6 and $14 per linear foot, lasting between 12 and 16 years, depending on the materials. Like regular mesh, they are effective even in the heaviest rainfalls and keep even the smallest debris out of your gutters.

Reverse-Curve Gutter Guards

Often called gutter covers or helmets, reverse-curve guards use surface tension to pull the water into gutters while causing leaves and needles to fall to the ground. Among the most expensive gutter leaf guards, they range from $8 to $20 per linear foot. They are effective, often lasting over 20 years, but dirt, pollen, and other small debris can make it into your gutters. Unfortunately, they do not always work effectively in areas with high rainfalls or frequent severe rainstorms.
