After waiting since November to have a contractor come out to clean my gutter. I gave up and tried to locate another contractor.
After several replies on Thumbtack, I decided on Reinaldo Torres of Del Ray Landscaping.
First thing, he was in the Alexandria area. Many contractors are too far and feel it is not worth their while to travel for a small job.
Second thing, its a landscaping business that does gutter cleaning. Great!! My neighbor has tree with limbs overhanging on my roof that traditional gutter cleaners will not touch.
Third thing, his quote was inline with the others as far as the gutter cleaning. I did not mention the tree at the time, but the quote for cleaning my gutter was very reasonable.
I contacted Reinaldo on Saturday, New Years Eve. He came out the same day in which I explained I wanted my roof swept and gutter cleaned. At that time, I asked if he would be willing to prune the branches overhanging my roof. He stated that would not be a problem for an additional/reasonable fee. We scheduled an appointment for two days later, Monday.
It was raining on Monday. Reinaldo, called that morning and explained it was not a good day due to the weather. I understood and we scheduled for the next Saturday. I then looked at the weather for that weekend, and there was a possibility of snow and cold later that week. I called Reinaldo back and asked if he could come out Wednesday, January 4th, after 3:00 PM when I was off work. No problem.
Reinaldo and a friend came out Wednesday around 3:30PM. They apologized for being late for they had mechanical issues on the work truck. Most contractors would have canceled. Not Reinaldo, he put a ladder on his family mini-van and came out. Taking about dedication and only 30 min late!!!
Reinaldo and his friend, Nelson, did a great job with the tree pruning, roof sweeping, and cleaning out my gutter. They cleaned up after and everything looked great.
I am very happy with the service and definitely will be using Del Ray Landscaping again!!!
