US demand for gutter guards is forecast to increase 2.5% annually to $746 million, equivalent to 362.4 million linear feet, in 2025. While expanding use of higher value products in the residential market – which represents the vast majority of sales – will boost gains in value terms, the large number of units installed in 2020 and 2021 amid the surging home renovation activity of the COVID-19 pandemic era will limit further installations going forward. Advances will be supported by:

  • rising sales of new and existing homes, as gutter guards are often installed by new homeowners
  • the replacement of older or worn gutter guards, often as part of gutter and downspout repair and replacement projects
  • expanding use of gutter guards to prevent gutters from being clogged by fallen leaves, pine needles, and other debris – thus minimizing the need to periodically clean gutters, a time-consuming and potentially dangerous task
  • growing interest in value-added gutter and downspout products and materials for their enhanced aesthetic appeal, such as copper hoods and covers

COVID-19 Pandemic Spurs Surge in Home Renovations, Boosting Near-Term Sales

The COVID-19 pandemic had a net positive impact on the US gutter guards market. Demand surged in 2020, driven largely by the surge in home renovation activity during the second half of the year. As gutter guards are most commonly purchased for residential improvement and repair applications – which accounted for 85% of demand in volume terms in 2020 – the spike in home improvements provided a healthy boost to gutter guard demand.

Low Cost & Versatile, Plastic Gutter Guards Are Increasingly Popular with DIYers

Through 2025, plastic gutter guards will post above average gains due to their low cost and light weight, which boosts their appeal with DIYers. Additionally, the variety of available plastic products (especially in terms of meshes and screens, and foams and bristles) will bolster growth. Plastic can be used with any gutter material, though it is less likely to be used with high-end gutter materials like copper.

Design & Construction Trends Expand Opportunities in the Residential Market

Not only is the share of US homes with gutters featuring gutter guards expanding, more homeowners are embracing construction projects that encompass these products:

  • Homeowners looking to improve drainage around their residences will repair or place gutters, either as a standalone project or as part of more comprehensive roofing work, and specify gutter guards at the time of installation to eliminate the need for periodic gutter cleaning.
  • Home design trends are leading to increased construction of homes with multiple gables, which both provide visual interest to a home and boost the amount of gutters required for proper drainage, as well as the length of gutter guard needed to protect them.
