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.

How much does gutter installation cost?

Gutter installation may cost anywhere from $700 to $2,500, depending on the materials you choose and the cost of labor in your area. On average, homeowners should expect to pay around $991 for new gutters. But to find out how much it will cost to install (or replace) gutters on your home, get free cost estimates from the best gutter professionals near you.

PVC, vinyl and aluminum are cheaper options, while steel and copper are more expensive, but will also last longer. Your price will also vary by the size and slope of your roof, the number of stories of your home, and the climate and labor costs in your area.

Do you need a permit to install gutters?

You may or may not need a permit. It depends on your location. In some cities, you may need a permit if you reside in a historic district or if the gutter installation project impacts the right of way. 

Check with your local public works office, permitting center or government office to see the requirements in your area. You can even contact gutter installation pros near you and ask if they know what the permit requirements are in your city.

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.

Chat with the best gutter cleaning services near you to see what their process entails and to get a free estimate.

How long does gutter installation take?

The majority of gutter installations take several hours or a whole day from start to finish. One factor that may cause the installation process to take longer is if you have a large or custom home. To find out how long it will take to replace your gutters, contact the best pros and ask for a free estimate.

My expectations were exceeded. My gutters had been so filled with tree debris. Not only did D.A. & Developments clean my gutters but he also helped trim pieces of my tree that were hanging onto the roof. I will be contacting them next year when I need my gutters cleaned!

I recently had King Gutters to my home for a cleaning due to a messy maple tree that clogs them year after year. The King Gutters team were very friendly, flexible with their schedule, and they went above and beyond while they were cleaning my gutters. The same messy tree that is the culprit of the clogs was hanging over a part of the gutter way out of my reach to trim. Without me having to ask, they trimmed the area of the tree they could reach that was causing a big part of the problems. Amazing! I will be using them again, and will highly recommend them!

I requested a quote on Monday. By Monday afternoon I had an in-person quote and made arrangements to have my gutters cleared on Tuesday. Julio was courteous and professional. Answered all of my questions and made recommendations for future needs. I will have gutter guards installed at a phenomenally low price (in my opinion) and hopefully also utilize this business for power washing. I saw pictures of the gutters before and after cleaning. Thank you!

They did a phenomenal job servicing our gutters! We have a 3-story house with a front pergola which makes accessing the roof a little tricky. The King Gutter Cleaners replied to us very quickly and scheduled time to come out. They didn’t have a tall enough ladder to get to our roof the first time, but it didn’t scare them away from the job. We rescheduled and the second time they were able to get up to our roof and service the gutters (as well as taking care of a plant that was growing fast through under the shingles by the front gutters!). They even helped us secure a section of the gutter where it was coming loose. Very professional and courteous. Communication was excellent. Lenny (i hope that’s the correct spelling) kept us informed through messages and calls. Price was reasonable and they were upfront about any updates or changes. We are very happy customers and will definitely recommend them to our family and friends.

Great experience using J&M Gutters. Maria responded quickly to my inquiry, answered my questions and was able to work with me on scheduling the job for the same week. When it came time for the cleaning, the technician called to say he was on his way, was respectful of my property, and did a great job. I would use J&M again.

James was prompt professional and courteous and did a great job repairing a leak in our gutter that hasn't given us any problems since he repaired it several months ago. I'm new to thumbtack & just figured out how to give a review. He was our first Thumbtack experience and because of James, we felt confident and comfortable using this again for a different project/professional.

I was looking for a roofer to clean out my clogged gutters. It was short notice as I needed them the next day because of rain the following day. He was able to come the next day and fix the problem that same day for a reasonable price. Also I will be getting a follow up at no cost in the fall. He was professional and well mannered. I would recommend him to my family and friends.
