Foam gutter guards stuff your gutters with foam material instead of debris, causing many of the problems with foam gutter guards. In fact, manufacturers suggest cleaning the gutters every 6 months after installation, but the gutter foam warranty doesn’t cover this recurring expense.
While the low cost of foam gutter guards may seem beneficial, you’ll need to factor in the cost to replace this temporary solution, which makes any initial savings worthless.

Not a Completely Sealed System
Foam gutter guards do not seal the gutter from debris entering and will lead to clogged gutters.
Traps Debris & Blocks the Flow of Water
Foam gutter guards trap seeds and dirt. The combination of foam, rainwater, and debris will cause weeds, plants, and trees to grow inside of your gutters, blocking the flow of water.
Requires Frequent Cleanings
Foam gutter guards are not maintenance free. You’ll still have to climb the ladder multiple times per year to clean the gutter guard, as well as the inside of your gutter in order to prevent clogs.
Skip the DIY Products - Hire a Pro
While some projects are better to DIY, others are better left to the pros. You’ll have to install gutter guards yourself, which is not only risky and requires you to climb the ladder, but can cause potential installational errors to cause your product to work ineffectively.
