Gutters are fairly simple and affordable considering how important they are: protecting more valuable parts of your home. Gutters keep rain off the siding, windows, porch, deck and basement, directing it discreetly away from your home.
Therefore, anything that protects your gutters and helps them work more efficiently is a great investment.
Gutter guards are an affordable product you can install on almost any type of gutters, and they serve as a protective screen for gutters so large debris and animals aren’t able to get inside of them. Purchasing gutter guards can be a money-saving measure that you’ll be rewarded for for many years.
There are a lot of types of gutter guard. The type you choose to install depends on your available budget and the type of rain gutters you have on your home. Gutter guards are made of aluminum, nylon or plastic.

Typically, gutter guards cost around as much per linear foot as the gutters themselves. But in the long run, you’re going to save time and money by installing them. Here are a few of the reasons we think you should install gutter guards on your home:
Improve Drainage by Preventing Clogs – Gutter guards help keep leaves and debris out of your gutters. Otherwise large pieces settle in the gutter first, then small pieces of debris pile up around them. Of all the many gutter guard models, all of them prevent these larger pieces of debris from getting stuck to begin with.
Reduce Mold & Mildew Growth – Gutter guards help water to stream through the gutters faster since it is unhindered by debris or leaves. Water is one of the main causes of mold and mildew growth, therefore moving the water faster through the gutters limits the amount of time rain is sitting still, leading to mold and mildew.
Prevent Pests from Nesting – Keeping squirrels, chipmunks, birds and insects out of your gutters and off the roof can be an endless struggle. Every style of gutter guard prevents pests from crafting nests within the gutter. Many homeowners decide to install gutter guards for this reason alone.
Gutter Cleaning Less Often – Gutter guards have to be removed in order to clean the gutters, but if they are present, this job won’t have to be done nearly as frequently. Leaf guards can reduce the frequency that you need to clean gutters – or or hire a company to do it for you – so that you might only have to have them cleaned only once a year.
Protection From Fires – A typical way fires spread to homes is if embers fall inside of gutters that have dry debris in them. This debris fuels the fire until it grows and damages the roof, and then the rest of the house. A standard gutter guard installation can protect your home from the risk of fire.
Prevent Ice Dams – If you happen to live in an area that gets frequent below-freezing temps, snow and ice, you’ll be happy to know that gutter guards can help stop snow and ice from staying up on your roof. Their designs purposefully redirect melting snow and ice to get it off your roof faster.
These are all issues that affect hundreds of thousands of American homes each year. Gutter guards protect a vital system that protects the rest of the house. If you’ve never considered installing them before, it could be time to think about it.
You can see, there are a lot of benefits of gutter guards. While it may be tempting to go out and buy the model you think will be the best – how much different could they really be, right? – you still have to install them correctly. All things considered, you’re much better off letting a professional gutter guard installation service do the project for you.
Not only will professional installation be a lot more reliable than DIY work, but a professional gutter guard service and installer is going to be able to recommend the best type of gutter system for your home in the first place. They are familiar with all of the options, and they will consider each factor when making their recommendation.
Here are a few of the factors a gutter guard service will consider when recommending the perfect gutter guards for your home:
Material – Gutter guards are manufactured with aluminum, plastic, foam or a handful of different materials. Some gutter guards are designed for temporary use while others are built to last as long as your gutters. The material plays a key factor in how long the gutter guards will last.
Installation method – The type of gutter guards we would suggest for a homeowner to install themselves is the drop in kind that do not require fastening to the gutters. However, these are not as dependable. Installing the other types, including snap-in and screw-on gutter guards, can destroy your gutters if they are not installed correctly.
Appearance – Many gutter guards offer a low profile so they aren’t visible from ground level, while others are visible. If this is an important condition, you are limited on the type of gutter guard you can install, and limited even more by the type of gutters you have. If it is very important for you to have “invisible” gutter guards installed, it may be necessary for you to buy new gutters.
Warranty – Most gutter guard styles will come with a shorter manufacturer’s warranty, but most of the aluminum models are guaranteed to last for 10-20 years. By having a licensed gutter guard installation company in Lawton (instead of doing it yourself), you won’t void the warranty. Gutter guards should never lift your shingles, nor should the installation void your roof’s warranty.
Another great thing by having LikeNew Lawton Gutters install your gutter guards is that we’ll come back and fix them free of charge if there is any issue due to the installation from our team.
Your budget is, of course, the final factor in choosing the gutter guards you will have installed. We provide a range of options for all budgets, and will provide the benefits listed above, to one degree or another.
