Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Is it worth it to hire a gutter cleaning service?

It’s almost always worth the money to hire a professional to clean your gutters, especially if you’re unable to clean your gutters yourself. 

Because your gutters see a lot of debris and abuse from Mother Nature, it’s essential to keep up with maintenance. Gutter cleaning is not terribly expensive, but it’s risky — working at the height of a gutter is dangerous. A professional gutter cleaner not only has experience, but also has insurance to cover any injuries. A pro also has the equipment and know-how to keep gutters in top shape and remove clogs from long downspouts. 

How do I find and hire a professional gutter cleaning service?

To find and hire a reputable pro, start by comparing gutter cleaning services in your area online. This may include companies that solely offer gutter cleaning, as well as companies that provide roofing, pressure washing, lawn care or general cleaning services. Read their ratings and customer reviews, paying close attention to any reviews that include photos for evidence of their workmanship. 

Next, check to see if the pros you’re considering have the proper credentials (licenses, certifications, insurance, etc.) in your state. Your cleaner should be insured against all work-related injuries and damage. 

The final step is to compare quotes and estimates from the pros you’ve selected.

Why is it important to clean your gutters?

Rain gutters, those easily-forgotten trenches that hang off the edge of your roof, protect your roof, walls and foundation from excess rainwater. When they get clogged with leaves, sticks and other wind-blown debris, they can no longer direct water away from your walls and foundation, and may become homes for pests and insects. They also become heavy enough to pull away from the house, preventing proper rainwater drainage and spoiling the appearance of your home. Experts recommend inspecting and cleaning your gutters twice a year, once in spring and once in fall, as part of your regular landscaping schedule. Gutter cleaning and maintenance is a fairly easy DIY job for some homeowners, especially on one-story homes. However, professional gutter cleaners have ladders tall enough to safely reach rain gutters, as well as the necessary tools to clean out the downspouts. Most gutter cleaning professionals can also make any necessary quick repairs.

How much does it cost to have gutters cleaned?

Professional gutter cleaning and maintenance should be done once or twice a year to remove debris and check for damage to the roof and gutter. The national average cost for rain gutter cleaners ranges from $100 to $130. A number of factors affect the costs, including the combined length of the gutters, the size of the house, the location of the gutters, and any risks posed to the professional cleaner. Some companies based their cost estimates on the linear square footage of the gutters; for example, 200 linear square feet of gutters on a standard, single-story ranch-style home costs an average of $125 to clean. The cost goes up for second- and third-story gutters and those in hard-to-reach places, like a roof with an unusually steep pitch. Expect to pay at least $100 more than standard prices if cleaning your home’s gutters requires extra safety precautions. Because spring and fall are gutter cleaners’ busiest seasons, some gutter cleaning and maintenance companies offer discounts during summer and winter months.

What does gutter cleaning include?

A professional gutter cleaning may include several services in one. And pros may utilize different gutter cleaning methods, depending on your situation.

Gutter cleaners typically set something down to catch the leaves and debris as they clean, whether it’s a bucket or a tarp set below. Then, they flush or dig out the leaves from the gutters, clean the downspouts out with a high-pressure hose, blower or pressure washer, inspect the gutters for damage and cracks, and fix any cracks using a gutter sealant.

Who can I get to clean my gutters?

If you’re looking for someone to clean the gutters on your home, there are a number of different businesses that tend to do this work.  The first is a dedicated property maintenance company, which commonly cleans gutters as part of keeping properties running smoothly. Landscaping and design companies may also offer gutter cleaning services, as well as roofers, painters, remodelers, carpenters and handymen. Lawn care services will sometimes offer gutter cleaning as part of a lawn care or leaf removal package.

How often do you need to clean your gutters?

Gutter cleaning and maintenance is an important part of keeping up a home. Not only are clogged gutters unsightly, they can also lead to water damage in the house’s walls and roof. The best way to prevent that is to clean your gutters at least twice a year — experts recommend making it part of your spring cleaning and fall landscaping schedules. In the fall, trees lose their leaves and, in the spring, release seedpods and flower petals, all of which tend to end up in rain gutters. It’s a good idea to also have a professional gutter cleaner clear out your downspouts, too; clogged downspouts can make gutters backup and overflow.

They replied quickly to my gutter cleaning request and gave us a reasonable quote. When they came out to clean the gutters, they were punctual and called when they were on their way. I watched them clean the gutters and it appeared like they did a good job. So I hired them to clean our windows as well in another two weeks. Thanks for a pleasant experience.

His service was as his company title says. Top notch. They were here when they said they would be, cleaned my gutters and took the clean up leaving my yard as they found it. I will ask him for his help again with this and other projects. Highly recommend

They did a great job overall. Took before and after photos and texted them to me in real time so I could see their progress. We found them during an awesome $89 special - that included cleaning and flushing the gutters. Fantastic communicators and easy Apple pay when it was all done. The only reason I didn’t give them 5 stars is because they threw the gunk from our gutters into our yard. So there were little piles all around our front and back yard and in our flower garden. Not sure if that simply how it’s always done no matter the company? We’re recently first time homeowners so this was our only experience with getting gutters cleaned.

I would not recommend this company for the gutter cleaning! Pay little more and try another company. Taking pictures had some truth and lot of it was deception. They do not haul away debris; however, they blow them away. They would not hesitate to leave surface areas of your home messy and ugly.

We hired Eric to clean the gutters on our 2 story house. The estimate provided on line was $160. When Eric arrived he showed us how the vacuum cleaner-like equipment worked, but declined to settle on a firm price. Nevertheless, we agreed he should start work. The vacuum canister has to be emptied periodically of the debris from the gutters. But Eric hadn't brought anything to empty the debris into, so I gave him a lawn/leaf bag & a large plastic barrel to use. When Eric was nearly done, I noticed (from an upstairs window) a section of gutter that was still full of debris, so I brought that to Eric's attention, and he quickly cleaned it. (we won't know what other sections he missed until the next big rain, of course.) Then he packed his equipment and presented us with the bill. It was for $249! $90 more than the estimate! We protested and tried to negotiate, but Eric held fast to his demand, even though he couldn't provide an explanation about the $90 price difference. Eventually, he took $15 off the bill. Eric said we were the only people who've ever argued with him about money, and that he couldn't understand our protests, because "it's just money". Then he handed me the credit card reader, positioned at the TIP screen. As if I would give him a tip, after he's charging us over 50% more than the "estimate" he'd provided. Compared to comments I've received on the Nextdoor app, I feel like we paid 2-3 times the going rate for gutter cleaning on a 2 story house similar to ours. When Eric drove off, he left the lawn bag of debris on the driveway. I guess he thought since he didn't bring it, he didn't need to remove it. A final FU to us.

While difficult to inspect the entire gutter cleaning job, part of the job included flushing out downspouts. However when I went to inspect what I could, one of the downspouts discharge end was flattened indicating nothing could have been flushed out of it. When I questioned this, contractor said he noticed that but didn't have the proper equipment to deal with the issue but would go back and correct problem. Would have been better if he would have informed me about issue before I found it on my own.
