Gutters can get gross. It’s just a fact. They fill up with leaves, sticks, and other debris and the buildup can cause leaks and water damage. It is recommended that you get your gutters cleaned anywhere from 1-3 times per year to avoid the nasty messes that can result from clogged gutters. You know it’s important to get it done but it can be hard to know exactly what you’ll be paying for the service and what you can expect will get done. Here is your guide to estimating your gutter cleaning prices so you never get ripped off when you get your gutters cleaned.
WHY HIRE PROFESSIONALS?
At first, you might wonder why you need to hire someone to clean your gutters but there are a few very clear reasons.
Professional gutter-clearners have the equipment needed to get the job including tall ladders, safety-gear, trowels and scoops, and high-pressure hoses. Chances are you don’t have this stuff laying around your house.
- Technical Skill
You don’t want to mess up your gutters because gutters that don’t work lead to expensive internal and external home repairs. Professionals know how to deal with all things gutter-related including gutter screens so you don’t mess anything up.
- High-Quality Service
Professionals get the job done right. You can feel comfortable knowing that you don’t need to worry about if your gutters have been cleaned right because a true professional will do work you can trust.
WHAT AM I PAYING FOR?
The national average for gutter cleaning is $157. But this number can vary quite a bit. Single-story homes often range in cost from $70-$200 but the more stories your house has, the more expensive the gutter-cleaning will be. Two-story homes range between $90-$225 per cleaning. Houses that have more stories than this will fluctuate in price but you can expect to add an additional $75-$200 depending on size and gutter-cleaning difficulty.
THINGS THAT INFLUENCE PRICES
There’s a few reasons those prices may fluctuate.
- Your house has more than one story
- Severely clogged gutters
- Landscaping that complicates the process
LINEAR FOOT PRICING MODEL
Some companies will charge you per foot cleaned. You can expect prices from $1 – $2 per foot. This may be a good option for you if your house has more patios and decks than actual gutters.
