Scott H. says, "We recently moved back to the Johnstown area to remodel our home and used Thumbtack to look for a roofing contractor. Paul, from Stay Dry Roofing, contacted me, which was a good thing because the initial contractor I was matched with never responded to any of my inquiries. During our initial conversation, Paul gave me an estimate (I assume he used GPS software to look at and measure the roof) and said he would drive out to talk in person. I didn’t expect him to do so because we are two hours away from his location. He told me he would be here around noon, he showed up at noon, wearing a mask, and we talked about the project. We talked about shingle specs, colors, his company, crew, etc. I asked him how much money he needed down, he said we would pay when the project was complete. This was very comforting because I was prepared to negotiate a minimal amount of money down as we were burnt in the past, giving a large deposit only to have the contractor bill before the work even started. That same week, all of the roofing material and dumpster were delivered to our house. At first, I wasn’t sure if I liked the color of the shingle. I called Paul, he told me to lay out about twenty of them in a group and see what I thought, he said if I still didn’t like the color he would have them picked up and order a different color. After spreading out the shingles, I was happy with the color. That weekend, his crew showed up to install the shingles, but we had to go out of town. The initial plan was to do a layover, but I received a call a few hours later and he informed me of some issues with the main roof, so we decided to do a full tear-off. We talked it over and decided he would do the garage and three porch roofs that day, then return to do the main roof. Unfortunately, we had three inches of snow or more for the following few weeks. Paul would call each week to get a status update on our weather. As soon as the weather permitted, he returned to do the main roof. He actually came the day before and stayed in a hotel to make sure everything was ready for his crew. They all showed up early in the morning, worked the entire day, and they were still cleaning up debris from the yard in the dark. Impressive considering the roof is 2.5 stories high and extremely steep, in addition to the fact that they had to lug all the shingles from about 75 yards away and carry all of the old roof and debris to a dumpster 75 yards away from the house, with snow still on the ground. Overall, Paul is the best contractor I ever hired. He was punctual, professional, personable, and honest. We actually were charged a very fair price and we are extremely happy with the roof and the experience. His crew is great at what they do, straight lines, straight valleys and straight caps. They worked hard all day long and I didn’t see anyone on a cell phone the entire day. I would highly recommend Paul and his crew. Thank you for a job well done."See more

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. 

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.

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.

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

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.

When should gutters be replaced?

Gutter systems made out of aluminum and galvanized steel have an expected lifespan of 20 years. Copper gutters may last 50 years or more. If your gutters are older than 20 to 50 years, it might be time to replace them.

Here are some additional signs that indicate you might need to replace your gutters:

  • Holes or cracks in the gutters
  • Leaking or pools of water
  • Splitting gutters
  • Loose or broken fasteners
  • Peeling and cracking 
  • Rot and mildew 
  • Excessive rust

Contact the best gutter installation services near you to inspect your gutters, and decide if the gutters should be repaired or replaced.

I would highly recommend Dave and his team, they did a great job replacing our gutters! He was honest, provided great feedback on our issues, punctual and always returned my calls and texts quickly! We had multiple other contractors who were charging us thousands of dollars to do unneeded services that Dave was able to fix in much more cost effective manor! I will definitely use his services in the future and will refer my friends and family!

These guys were AWESOME. I needed my gutters cleaned and mind you i had no idea what these things looked like (new house - 8 months in) I was told they could come out the next day for a much cheaper price than anyone else offered me. The guy said they were coming out after finishing up another project only 15 minutes away. So they get there and not only 2 but like 6 GUYS, showed up and started cleaning. THEY WERE DONE IN NOT EVEN 25 MINUTES, and each guy made sure to double check all the work. It was incredible, i had to go into work that night so they made sure they wouldn’t be long so i could sleep!! It really was the most incredible experience i ever had on here and these guys deserve to be hired for whatever project you need. They will not disappoint !!
