“I was impressed with the same day service and excellent work done cleaning my gutters by your technicians Joe and Roger. They did a nice job of cleaning up by blowing off my driveway of those ‘helicopters’ from the maple tree.”

Our Rain Gutter Cleaning Process
If the leaves and gutter debris isn’t too wet or mucky, we will usually use a leaf blower to blow all the debris out of the gutters and downspouts. This is a very effective method as it removes the smallest debris and we can visually see when the downspouts blow out clear. We have special tools, similar to what plumbers use to clear your drains, to clear out the plugged downspouts if really clogged. We then blow off all the hard surfaces on the ground, like your driveway, sidewalk and patios of any debris. We can bag this debris at an additional cost.
If the leaves are too wet or there is too much decomposed debris in the gutter, we will remove the debris by hand and blow out the downspouts with our leaf blower or use a garden hose to flush them clear. Either method will leave your gutters and downspouts clean and flowing freely.
How Much Does Gutter Cleaning Cost?
If you give us a call, we can usually give you a price quote within minutes.
If you have a smaller home, typical split level or very simple guttering and a walkable roof you are probably looking at about $100. If you have a larger two-story home with a walkable roof you are probably in the ballpark of $125, but if the roof isn’t walkable or you have really high gutters you are probably looking around $150. The cost may be more if your gutters haven’t been well maintained or are full of wet or decomposed material, because this makes for a messy, time consuming job. We charge an additional 25% of cleaning cost to bag and haul off all debris, smaller jobs may still fall into the $100 price range even with bag and remove. Again, if you give us a call we can usually give you a price quote within minutes.
Long-Term Solutions to Gutter Issues
A recurring maintenance plan for gutter cleaning is the first great step toward maintaining your home and avoiding costly water damage and erosion issues to your property. We can set you up on a recurring schedule of yearly, semi-annual, quarterly, or whatever your need may be. As you may be aware of, some trees are messier than others and require the gutters to be cleaned regularly to avoid issues.
If you have issues with particular downspouts continually being plugged, sometimes the simplest and most cost effective method is to place downspout strainers over these problem areas. These can be very effective in certain situations. We do not use the cross-mesh type strainers as these get plugged quite quickly, but an aluminum wire strainer. These usually cost less than $10 each.
If you are tired of dealing with having your gutters cleaned out all the time, and just want the peace of mind knowing that your downspouts will never get plugged again, we recommend having a product called Leaves Out installed. Leaves Out is not your typical gutter cover/protection system. Most gutter covers are only effective for a few seasons before they are plugged with debris or the materials crack or deteriorate from the elements. After 30 years we have seen how these inferior products perform, as many customers request us to remove them from their guttering due to their lack of performance. But LeavesOut® is a totally different product that really works, Guaranteed! Please go to our Gutter Guards page to check out our LeavesOut® product.
Gutter Cleaning Frequently Asked Questions
How do you clean the gutters?
We use a couple of different methods to clean gutters. If the leaves and debris in the gutters are not too saturated with water, we will blow all debris out of the gutters and downspouts with a leaf blower; this is a very effective method as it removes even the smallest debris from the guttering. If downspouts are plugged and we cannot clear them with the leaf blower, we will use a plumbers snake or garden hose to clear them of any debris. If the debris in the gutters is too saturated with water to use a blower, we will clean them out by hand and run water through the downspouts to make sure that they are clear of any debris.
How do I get an estimate? – How much does gutter cleaning cost?
If you give our office a call we can generally give you a price-range estimate over the phone. It’s impossible to give an exact estimate for gutter cleaning, because cost will vary depending upon the size of the home, the amount of debris in the gutters, whether or not the debris is wet and decomposed, whether or not downspouts are plugged, and whether or not there are any gutter guard/leaf protectors that need to be removed during cleaning. We generally do not do onsite estimates for gutter cleaning because our incurred cost to do the estimate is relatively high compared to the cost of cleaning the gutters.
Do you clean up my yard after cleaning the gutters?
We will blow off the patio, driveway or other hard surfaces from the debris that falls out of the gutters and we will bag any decomposed material that is removed from the gutters. We can bag all material at your request, but there is generally an additional charge for that service. If we hand clean the gutters because the debris is too saturated with water to use a blower, we will bag the debris; but hand cleaning generally costs more because it is more time consuming.
Do I have to be home at the time of service?
No, you don’t have to be home when we come to your house. In the event that you are not home, we will leave an invoice, and self-addressed envelope for you to send payment.
What should I ask when hiring a gutter cleaning company?
1. How long until you can get the service completed?
Many gutter cleaning companies come and go. We have been servicing homes in the Metro areas for over 30 years. We service thousands of homes each year – there’s a reason that many people choose us.
2. Do you have insurance, and what kind of insurance do you have?
We carry Worker’s Compensation and General Liability Insurance and our insurance agent can fax or mail you a certificate of proof of insurance. Many companies will put “fully insured” in advertisements, however, this doesn’t really ensure that they are. Make sure to get them to send you an insurance certificate and verify that they carry Worker’s Compensation and General Liability insurance; otherwise you could be liable if an accident occurs on your property.
