Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

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 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.

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.

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.

Here are the best gutter cleaning services near you — contact several pros to start getting free estimates.

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.

Came home and gutters were cleaned! Just moved into the house a month ago and dreaded cleaning the gutters. Front of the property alone has 2 Oaks and a Sugar Maple. Found Conte Lawn Care for a great price and I’m no longer afraid of the gutters overflowing!

Joshua answered all my questions that I asked prior to hiring. We agreed to day and time for cleaning my gutters and downspouts. He actually arrived a little earlier which was great and had the gutters and downspouts cleaned in a very reasonable time. I inquired about the price of installing gutter guards on my house. His price was very reasonable that I asked if he had the guards with him and the time right then and there to install them. He agreed to install them and took a picture of the finished product to show me my new gutter guards. Joshua was punctual, professional, and wonderful work quality at a very reasonable price. Thank you Joshua for your services! Donna F

Jeff did a great job of cleaning my gutters and went above and beyond to unplug the downspout, which was very blocked. I would recommend him to a friend in a heartbeat!!

Patrick was professional. Our job required gutter cleaning for a couple of trees that had started to grow out of our gutters along our roof. He came when he said he would come. He completed the job while we were out, and left an invoice for exactly the amount he quoted. In all he was pleasant to work with, and I would use him again.

Anthony did a great job in the wind and rain. I had ask him to just clean my gutters but we had remains of a hornets nest under the over hang and he cleaned up that for me also. He said he would come back later to clean up the stain but I told him we will do it the spring because I will hire his services again.

Even though our gutters we're partially buried in snow, Patrick still did a great job cleaning out all the debris and leaves. He worked quickly, was very efficient and removed as much from the roof as well as was possible considering the conditions. Would rehire!

I think the better way to describe the job done in my house is ASAP+++. Mark provided me with a very competitive quote (+). The job was done the same day I put the request in Thumbtack (+). Working with these guys was a pleaseant experience. They know how to deal with their client with a smile, courtesy and vibrant energy (++). The completed job met my expectations, plus Mark also made some recommendations to improve the gutters system (++). Don't hesitate to call them. You will appreciate their service. Now, I have someone steady to clean and or repair the gutters in my house.

I tried to hire the lowest bidder, and got excuses for three weeks of why he couldn't make it. Finally I decided to go to the next highest bidder, and he was only higher by $5. Boy, I wish I had called him first! He called me right back, scheduled me for the next day to beat the snow (and it was late in the season too; I wasn't sure he would be able to fit me in). He cleaned my gutters when he said he would. Left me an invoice. I dropped a check in the mail. Done. I will call Vincent first from now on. Oh, and he didn't leave any kind of mess, he took the gunk/leaves with him. I had a gutter cleaner once throw it all over my yard, so I can appreciate a contractor who cleans up after himself.

They responded right away, showing up the next day after negotiating a fair price for gutter cleaning of two houses side-by-side, of which I provided photographs. Two men arrived, very polite and professional. However, after 20 minutes, they informed me they had to leave and come back after the weekend with proper tools. They never came back. They never returned my call. They never responded to our Thumbtack thread. Either the job exceeded their expectations, or Winter got in the way, or both. Whatever the reason, I don't know because communication ceased. Bummer. Recognizing the limitations of Winter, I would have been content to pick this up again in the Spring, or during after a big thaw, if they had only followed up.
