How Much You Can Expect to Pay for Gutter Covers

August 25, 2017

Cleaning out your gutters on a routine basis is an important part of home maintenance—but many homeowners find it tedious and even unsafe, as it requires climbing a ladder. Fortunately, by installing a dependable gutter guard system such as Gutter Helmet®, you won’t ever have to clean your gutters again.

Gutter Covers

Here’s a look at the different types of gutter covers and how much you can expect to pay for each one:

Mesh Screens

Mesh screens are the least expensive option. They are designed to capture sticks, leaves, and other large debris before they land in your gutters. While they do work well in situations where leaves are the main problem, they don’t prevent pine needles, seeds, and other small debris from getting into your gutters.

This DIY option costs between $0.50 and $10 per linear foot, depending on the quality of the mesh screen you purchase.


Foam products sit inside the gutters and allow water to seep through them while repelling solid debris. The downside is the foam can fill up with roof shingle grit, pollen, dust, and compost, resulting in overflows. Moreover, the moisture they retain attracts insects, including mosquitoes, and ant colonies, which could cause damage requiring replacement gutters. You can expect to pay about $400 to $600 for a 150-foot project.

Surface Tension Guards

With surface tension gutter guards like Gutter Helmet, water clings to the rounded nose of the guard and flows into the gutter. Leaves and all manner of debris simply fall off the side. Surface-tension guards work very well with leaves and other large debris. Though small debris can sometimes enter your gutters, they will flow through the downspouts without a problem.

Gutter Helmet’s price depends on the condition of your gutters, the total number of feet that you need covered, the pitch of your roof, and how many floor levels your home has.
