Leaf Protection Services in Frederick, MD

Frederick, Maryland is known for its picturesque countryside, rolling hills, and trees. While having surrounding trees that are tall and elegant may offer shade and reduce energy expenses, they may also cause problems with your gutters.

Gutters and downspouts need to be clear of debris so they can effectively handle rainwater during a rain event. Many Frederick, MD homeowners have experienced the aggravation of a clogged gutter system, such as the damage to wood trim, landscaping, basement flooding, and more.

Gutter cleaning alone may be adequate for many Frederick, MD Homeowners, but in more wooded areas, adding a leaf protection system may be necessary to ensure gutters are functioning properly between cleanings.

Below are the four basic types of leaf protection as well as pricing guidelines for each type. Price includes material and installation.

Gutter Screens


  • Budget friendly
  • High-Volume water flow
  • Compatible with most gutters and roof types


  • Not effective against smaller types of debris
  • Smaller sections means more seams
  • Requires more maintenance than other types of leaf protection

$6 – $7 per foot

For budget conscious consumers, gutter screens are a great way to limit maintenance, and to keep gutters functional between cleanings. Although gutter screens allow for high-volume water flow, they are not effective against smaller debris such as Pine Needles and Maple Seeds. Gutter screens will require more maintenance than all other leaf protection types.

Perforated Cover

GutterMaid’s Choice


  • Effective against smaller types of debris
  • Low visibility from the ground
  • Longer sections means less seams
  • Compatible with most gutters and roof types


  • Somewhat restrictive to water flow
  • Because they lay flat, debris can accumulate on top of the system

$10 – $12 per foot

We recommend perforated covers to Homeowners looking for an effective solution at a reasonable price. Perforated covers are great for keeping out smaller debris, and are also not as restrictive to water flow as some of the other types of leaf protection systems. For these reasons, we recommend perforated covers more than any other type of leaf protection.

Gutter Filters


  • Effective against smaller types of debris
  • Low maintenance
  • Compatible with most gutters and roof types


  • Somewhat restrictive to water flow
  • Smaller sections means more seams
  • Debris compost can clog fine mesh
  • Not recommended for half round gutters

$12 – $14 per foot

Gutter filters provide excellent protection against even the smallest types of debris. However, they are generally not as rigid as some of the other leaf protection types, meaning they are more susceptible to damage from snow accumulation and impact damage. In addition, the fine mesh can become easily clogged if accumulated debris is not removed from the top of the system.

Solid Cover


  • Effective against smaller types of debris
  • Low maintenance


  • Very restrictive to water flow
  • Highly visible from the ground
  • Not compatible with all roof types
  • Most expensive

$14 – $16 per foot

Solid gutter covers can be a very effective form of leaf protection. It works by using surface tension to direct water into the gutter, while preventing leaves twigs and other debris from entering. Because of its design, it is not compatible with all roof and gutter types. It is also very restrictive to water flow, and has the highest installation price of all leaf protection types. For these reasons, we very rarely recommend solid gutter covers.
