Just wondering if anyone could recommend gutter guards, either to look into or avoid. We have a fairly small house, only about 65 feet of gutter length, but many older trees surrounding. We have a large maple, oak, and ash tree that contribute to gutter clogging, primarily in the fall. However, the maple tree provides plenty of seed deposits during the spring. Our gutters are currently clutter free so I am looking to install some guards within the next month.

I am looking for a do-it-yourself option and would like to keep it relatively affordable (preferably under $100). Found some that were 3 feet in length, snapped onto the gutter and had a mesh screen to help keep out smaller items (like maple seeds!). Just wanted to get some opinions on gutter guards before I went out and bought some. Once again, just looking for input on gutter guards to look into or guards to avoid. Thank you!
