Leafguard as the name suggests is a thin aluminum screen installed to cover the gutters so that the falling leaves would not clog the gutters. Gutters get clogged with leaves around the fall season, especially in houses where there are a lot of trees around the house. Tiny holes in the leaf guard plate only allow water to seep into the gutter and keeps leaves, debris, etc out.
We provide leaf guard installation services for old as well as new gutters. Feel free to get in touch with us to get a quote for leaf guard installation for the entire gutter or any small section.

How much do leaf guards cost? Are they worth it?
The cost of installing leaf guards on top of the gutters depends on various factors such as the type of leaf guards, the size, the roof height, and the complexity of the job.
The cost ranges anywhere from $6 to $12 dollars per linear foot. It is worth an investment in most cases as it removes the cost of having to clean your gutters every fall season.
How long do leaf guards last?
Leaf guards are made from metal and are very robust. They last as long as your gutter system, which is more than 20 years in most cases.
Properly installed leaf guards can be removed and reused in case the gutters are required to be replaced.
