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.
