How Much Does It Cost to Install Gutter Guards in Philadelphia, PA?

City of Philadelphia at night.
Through rain and snow, gutter guards can help your gutters stay clean in Philadelphia.

In Philadelphia, it rains from eight to eleven days a month. What are your gutters doing during this time? Hopefully, they’re moving water efficiently from the roof to the ground, but if they are full of leaves and other debris, that water can back up and pour over the edges of the gutters. As a homeowner, you need gutters that will stand up to the weather. While regular gutter cleaning can help solve the problems of clogged gutters, it can be dangerous to stand on a ladder in the rain and snow, cleaning your gutters. For an ongoing solution to clogged gutters, turning to gutter guards can help. How much will they cost?

Professional Installation or DIY?

When you’re thinking about installing gutter guards or gutter covers, should you install them yourself? Generally, DIY gutter guards are cheaper, but the key question is whether they are actually effective for your gutters. There are many simple gutter cover and guard products on the market, and some are easy to DIY, such as foam inserts and brushes. Websites such as Do It Yourself give you step-by-step instructions about ways to measure and install your new gutter guards.

However, some of the products that you can install on your own still require a lot of cleaning. They might remove large debris from the gutter itself, but the debris now sits on top of the gutter guard.

That’s one of the many reasons we recommend using a professional gutter installer for your gutter guards. There are other advantages to working with a professional too. These advantages include:

  • An understanding of what gutter guards are right for your home.
  • Experience with installation, to ensure that your gutter guards are installed properly.
  • Better quality products that may only be installed by a professional.
  • A warranty on installation and materials, just in case something goes awry.

What Are the Different Gutter Guard Types and How Much Do They Cost?

There are many different types of gutter guards, and the cost of these products varies a lot too.

Screen and filter gutter guards filter water through holes in mesh. They’re easy to add to a home yourself, but unfortunately, they’re also not very efficient. Large debris tends to sit on top of the mesh or screen, and eventually, you will need to remove it.

Solid gutter covers send water under the gutter cover while debris slides off the edge onto the ground. They are often installed by a professional, making them more expensive to install. However, if you have a newer gutter system, they can be installed over the top of existing gutters. They also do not require any additional cleaning after they have been installed.

All-in-one gutter systems combine a gutter guard and a gutter; you need to replace both your gutters and your gutter cover at the same time. For those who need both products at once, an all-in-one system is a good choice. If you’ve just installed new gutters or don’t want to change gutters right now, these systems may not be the best choice. An all-in-one system doesn’t generally need to be cleaned on an ongoing basis.

Factors That Affect Installation Costs

What other factors influence the cost of your gutter guard or gutter cover system?

  • Ask about additional costs such as disposal fees for old gutters or gutter covers. Is there an existing gutter guard or heating system?
  • Check to see if your new gutter guards require you to change your gutters as well.
  • The complexity of your home’s layout influences your gutter system. If your home has many levels and corners, gutter guards will cost more.

Do You Need a Gutter Guard?

While your home needs gutters, gutter guards or covers seem like an option rather than a necessity. However, for many homeowners, gutter cleaning isn’t just irritating; it can be dangerous. Standing beside your home on a ladder can lead to injuries. If you’d like to maintain a tidy home and keep your gutters running smoothly, with no overflows and leaks, a gutter guard system is for you. Say goodbye to clogged gutters and gutter cleaning. Get Gutter Helmet, and you’ll never need to clean your gutters again.

I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.

Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!

VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.

We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.

We just had Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters and couldn't be happier. They provided us with useful information about Gutter Helmet and cleaned up everything, leaving no mess behind. We definitely recommend Gutter Helmet to anyone considering this product.
