Compare gutter guard systems: screens, brushes, & more

In order to keep debris out and gutters from overflowing, you'll need a rain gutter guard you can trust. An effective gutter guard can help prevent gutter damage, such as sagging, denting, and pulling away, and extend the life of your gutters. Check out our handy gutter guard comparison below to learn the advantages and disadvantages of each type of gutter cover.

The pros & cons of common gutter guard systems:

  • Gutter Screen: A gutter screen consists of a plastic, metal, or mesh topper placed over your gutters. Gutter screens are relatively easy to install and vary in perforation size. Issues with gutter screens are a hole size that is too large to effectively filter out debris, blow-off risk, and the continued need for regular gutter cleaning to keep gutters clear and allow for water flow.
  • Gutter Brushes & Filters: A pipe cleaner-type device with a thin metal wire and polypropylene bristle, a gutter brush is inserted into your gutter system. This is an easy DIY option that is inexpensive. Issues with gutter filters include a build-up of debris when leaves and twigs are trapped in the bristles, along with the need for regular cleaning to maintain performance.
  • Gutter Hoods, Helmets & Covers: Gutter hoods or covers are attached to the top of your gutter and installed under your roofing shingles. Potential issues with gutter hoods include voided roof warranties, the risk of leaks at seams, and damage during storms.
  • All-In-One Gutter System: A custom-made, seamless system that installs under the drip edge. Issues with all-in-one systems are minimal, but they aren't suited for DIY installation and may require custom, on-site installation.
