Gutter guards are a smart investment for any homeowner. They come in many styles, so there is a gutter guard available for every home type and budget. Keep reading to learn about four of the most popular gutter guard styles.

Gutter brush or bottlebrush gutter guards sit inside the gutter facing upward. They are spiky, so they trap leaves and debris on top of them so that water is free to flow underneath.

Mesh or screen guards cover the gutters, leaving tiny holes for water. Depending on the size of the holes, this type of gutter guard can even be designed to keep sand out.

Nylon gutter guards fit neatly inside the gutters and do not need to be attached to the shingles at all. They are especially effective at keeping ice and snow out, making them appropriate for cold regions.

Reverse curve gutters are rounded, featuring a solid top with slots in the side. This design causes debris to fall right to the ground while allowing water in through the slots.
