3 Things You Should Know When Choosing a Gutter Cleaning Company

Gutter Cleaning near me Denver 13

We get asked a lot of questions about gutter cleaning and especially around this time of year. Pricing comes up often, but there are a few other things that are important to know about gutter cleaning. It’s these questions that people are often wondering, but seldom ask that I think are important to address. Hopefully this article helps you make an informed decision for your next gutter cleaning service. Here are a few things to consider:

  1. Why do rates seem to vary so much from from company to company?
  2. How does your service compare to other companies? What am I actually paying for?
  3. Why should I pay those rates when there are probably amateur handymen out there that would do it for much less?


There are a few commonly used methods for pricing your gutter cleaning. Many companies will charge anywhere between $1-3 per linear foot of gutters that need to be cleaned. Depending on how long ago the previous gutter cleaning service was performed and whether the gutters are first, second or third story can increase or decrease the price accordingly. Additionally some companies will charge $5 or more for every downspout that needs to checked and cleared.

Additional fees typically apply for:

  • Bagging and hauling away debris collected from the gutters
  • How steep your roof is, and what material it’s made out of
  • Clearing your roof of leaves and sticks
  • Taking photos of the cleaned gutters
  • Detached garages


Gutter cleaning costs can vary greatly depending on which gutter cleaning company you choose to work with. The most commonly used methods for gutter cleaning involve someone getting on your roof and using a leaf blower to blow leaves out of your gutter. Another approach involves using specialized gutter vacuums to suck the leaves out.


The first reason is that they make a huge mess out of your yard, with the leaf blower spraying debris in a wide radius around your home. The other reason is that these methods are only suitable for loosely packed and dry leaves. However, what we typically see in gutters that have had rain, snow, and significant accumulation of leaves is a densely packed combination of mud, sticks, leaves and random objects like tennis balls, etc.

It’s easy to find someone who will promise to clean your gutters for cheap. In our unregulated internet marketplace amateur handymen offering their services are common. While some of these people may have experience working as a professional, you can’t be sure of exactly what you’re getting. The only guarantee is that they are going to be cheap and that says a lot about the service you are about to receive.

When someone cuts their service fee to well below market standards it can’t be sustainable. The business almost certainly makes up for this by cutting back elsewhere. The company or handyman cleaning your gutters likely has no insurance in place to cover you, your property or their employees in the event of an accident that causes damage. It’s important to understand, they may also try to hold you responsible in event of an accident.

They may be using improper tools or not cleaning all of your gutters; choosing instead to focus only on those areas that can be seen from out your windows in order to save time. Whatever the cut back may be it will ultimately affect the quality of the service you are about to receive.
