I am not yet convinced there is such a thing as a good gutter guard. If it'll let the rain water in, it will also let the fine sand from the shingles, small pieces of decayed leaves, twigs, and etc., which will still clog up the gutter, but make it impossible to clean out.

If there IS a good one, I would like to know about it.

I had what they call Gutter Covers installed in 2003 about 140 feet. They've worked quite well so far. This company is no longer in business. The cost was $1238.00 back then. You can now have them made on the site. They make the gutter and guard in one operation. Hal

Not sure good and gutter guards should be in the same sentence. I guess it depends on the situation. I have pine needles, cottonwood fuzz,maple helicopters plus the normal leaves.When I"d ask the suppliers about that they"d wrinkle their noses and stutter a bit. Of course, they"d say we"ll clean it for free. No thanks. Went with much larger conventional gutters and downspouts and it solved the problem.Plus the neighbor boy with clean them for $10. My other observation is that a company that can take out full page ads just "might" have too much margin.

Steve,
Can't say that any guard is going to be the easiest, especially if your shingles are sealed down.

The gutter guards that I like are sold at Lowes and Menards. They are 4 ft long plastic guard with round holes. The holes are covered with window screen. I don't have to worry about maple spinners getting stuck in the guards like they do in most other guards.

I have taken sheet metal screws and attached them to the top of the gutter if I can't get it to snap and stay in place. I've also takens sissors and trimmed them to fit.

George

I have those same ones (bought at Home Desperate) and after 7 years, I cannot say anything bad about them. Pine needles, roof stones, leaves, nothing gets in them, gutters always clean.

I had generic gutter guards installed and had problems with birds getting in the ends and making a nests. Beat the supplier up and he cam back and put end shields on.
