If you don’t have much experience with DIY repairs or home improvement projects, it may be best to hire a gutter professional or at least a handyman. This is especially true if you aren’t comfortable with ladders, lack the tools required, or have a particularly high roof.
If you are a skilled DIYer, take a moment to assess the severity of the issue and weigh your options. Do you also have gutter leaks or other damage? You can save money by handling gutter repair yourself, but some situations might call for a full gutter replacement. In that case, it may be best to hire a professional gutter company. This will save you time and give you access to more options, such as seamless gutters that will resist clogging and sagging.
You might consider having high-quality gutter guards installed at the same time. This upgrade will help keep debris out of your gutters, which will help prevent sagging and other gutter-related issues. Here are a few companies that offer gutter guards as well as gutter installation and repair services.
LeafFilter offers a three-piece gutter guard system that installs directly onto your existing gutters. Its system includes a stainless-steel micro-mesh screen supported by a uPVC frame and structural hangers that fasten into your fascia boards. The gutters guards sit at an angle so that surface tension draws water into your gutters while debris slides off.
In addition to gutter guard installation, LeafFilter offers gutter repair and replacement services as needed. Before installing your new gutter guards, the company’s installers will inspect and clean your existing gutters and perform any necessary repairs. Alternatively, they can install brand new gutters.
Rather than adding gutter guards to your existing drainage system, LeafGuard installs new gutters with reverse-curve gutter guards built in. Its effective one-piece design requires minimal maintenance. Due to the product’s nature, LeafGuard does not offer gutter cleaning or repair services. If cost is a concern, the company offers free estimates, financing, and a clog-free guarantee. LeafGuard’s ScratchGuard paint finish also comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
Like LeafFilter, HomeCraft offers a stainless-steel micro-mesh gutter guard system that installs onto your existing gutters. Its design is different, though: Rather than relying on surface tension and a substructure, its gutter guards have a powder-coated aluminum frame and a raised diamond design. The textured surface keeps debris slightly up and out of the way, creating space for water to continue flowing into your gutters.
Before providing any pricing information, HomeCraft will inspect your gutters and demonstrate its product. The company can also clean and repair your gutters or install brand-new gutters.
