    Services Offered by Gutter Guard Companies

    Gutter guard companies often have a full range of services in addition to guard inspection and installation. Common services include cleaning and repair, which are typically also covered by a comprehensive service agreement.

    Gutter Guard Installation

    While most gutter guards demand professional installation, others have easy do it yourself installation. Brands such as LeafGuard and LeafFilter provide installation services as part of their packages. If you're installing new gutters, consider aluminum or stainless steel micro-mesh guards as the highest quality options. You can also select reverse-curve guards or PVC screens depending on the company. Each material has a different life span and resilience against the elements.

    Gutter Installation

    Some gutter guard providers offer full gutter replacement. Others, such as LeafGuard, offer seamless systems combining gutters with protective mesh. No matter which brand you choose, technicians will measure and cut each part of your new gutter system on-site. Comprehensive gutter installation includes hangers, end caps, downspouts, and other components in one package. Gutter companies usually won't force you to get professional installation with your new gutters. However, if you have a multi-story home, we recommend it to give you peace of mind.

    Gutter Repair

    Debris buildup over the seasons can cause leaks, clogs, and standing water damage. During the estimate process, ask about the company’s repair policy. Some contractors will only repair systems they installed themselves.

    Gutter Cleaning

    Most homeowners dread gutter cleaning, but it's critical to do it regularly. Debris, such as pine needles, leaves, and shingle grit, can build up and cause more severe issues, especially on low-pitch roofs. Many companies will offer routine cleaning packages for newly-installed gutters.

    Warranties

    Gutter guard providers typically include warranty coverage. Warranties will vary from company to company, but they could cover materials, installation labor, or both options. Material warranties typically last longer, sometimes for the lifetime of the product. Installer warranties can include maintenance over a set period of time, typically 10–15 years.

    Factors To Consider When Choosing a Gutter Guard Company

    Whether you're scheduling a downspout repair or replacing your gutters with an integrated system, it's crucial to screen each company on your shortlist. Review the points below and ask any questions you have.

    • Cost: Request quotes from multiple different contractors so you can compare prices. Some companies will quote package deals for comprehensive gutter installation, while others charge individually for gutter cleaning, fascia board replacement, and gutter guard installation.
    • Expertise: Gutter installation companies provide different services and have varying expertise. Choose a company that can provide all the services you require. You can see the services a company provides listed on their website.
    • Guarantees: Summer downpours and winter ice dams can wear on your gutter system over time. Many top providers offer warranty plans that extend for 10 years or longer. If you live in an area with a harsher climate, look for a competitive warranty plan your gutters and gutter guards.
    • Licensing:Gutter guard companies might have to hold licenses and permits according to California and San Juan Capistrano regulations. They should also carry workers’ compensation insurance and general liability coverage to protect staff and clients. Reach out to your local government to learn more about what's required, and verify a company is in compliance before signing any contract.
    • Reputation and reviews: Customer reviews are your most valuable resource when evaluating a home service company. Better Business Bureau, Google Reviews, social media, Trustpilot, and Yelp are excellent sources to consult.

    How Much Do Gutter Guards Cost?

    Expect an installation cost of $392 to $3,455 for new gutter guards. The initial cost to have gutter guards installed can be high, but the product will pay off long-term by protecting your roof, foundation, and fascia from water damage. Variables such as gutter time of year, accessibility, home size, and length and width will determine the total project cost.

    The table lists the typical per-foot rates for the most widely used gutter guard types in San Juan Capistrano. For a rough idea of your specific costs, determine which material you'd like from the options. Then, measure your gutter system's total linear footage excluding downspouts. Multiply that measurement by the corresponding cost per foot.

    MaterialCost per foot
    Aluminum mesh$4
    Brush$4
    Foam$2
    Plastic mesh$4
    Reverse-curve$3
    Stainless steel micro-mesh$5

    Frequently Asked Questions About Gutter Guards in San Juan Capistrano

    Should I add gutter guards to my rain collection system?

    Homeowners should install gutter guards on their rain collection systems, even in areas like San Juan Capistrano that get a low amount of rain, or if they have trees hanging over their roofs. The gutter guards help prevent debris such as pollen, leaves, and pine needles from getting into the gutters. This helps halt blockages that could obstruct the rain collection system.

    Can I install my own gutter guards?

    You might be able to install gutter guards on your own if you have a smaller single-story home with easy roof access. Online retailers such as Amazon and local hardware stores sell DIY gutter filters and guards.

    Can gutter guards handle any size of debris?

    This is determined by the type of gutter guard you purchase. Micro-mesh guards filter almost all kinds of debris, including shingle grit. These guards are very effective for small debris, but they are usually the most expensive, at around $5.05 per foot.

    What are some problems I may encounter with my gutter guards?

    A frequent problem with gutter guards is the buildup of moss and algae due to debris collecting on the screens. This is unlikely to happen in San Juan Capistrano, given its low tree coverage, but it's still important to watch out for. Guard systems reduce cleaning frequency, but they do not eliminate the need to clean. Poorly made gutter guards can crack during cooler months, resulting in the need for replacement or frequent maintenance.

    Does the size of my gutters affect the cost of gutter guards?

    Yes, gutter size affects the cost of your gutter guards. The length and width both help determine the price. Gutters that are six or seven inches are oversized, while five-inch-wide gutters are standard. Guards for wider gutters generally cost more than standard guards.
