Depending on the location of trees in the area, gutter guards can be very useful. You may want gutter guards on all gutters, or just on gutters that have trees around them. The benefit of gutter guards is that they can cut your cleaning frequency in half. The downside, however, is that gutter guards do not always reduce your cleaning frequency enough to pay for themselves. There are many types of leaf guard systems available today, with prices ranging from as little as 50¢ per foot for material in do-it-yourself jobs to as much as $15 per foot installed. The best approach to gutter guards is to consult a professional.
