Hi I’m Brandon with All-Clean SoftWash.
Today I want to answer a question we get a lot throughout the year – how much does it cost to have your gutters cleaned?
First off – just the fact that you are asking this question means you understand the importance of keeping your gutters clean! When gutters back up and overflow – it can lead to foundation cracks, rotting fascia boards, roof leaks or even to the gutters detaching from the house altogether! So the cost to NOT have your gutters cleaned can be in the thousands!
Now there are 3 main factors that affect pricing –
1) How tall is your home?
2) Do you have large trees overhanging your roof?
3) How accessible are the gutters?
An average price for gutter cleaning is about $1 per linear foot. An average home typically has between 150-200 lineal feet of gutters – which makes sense why the national average price for gutter cleaning is around $150-200.
However, if the home is very tall, is on a steep hill, or has stretches of gutters that can’t be reached with a ladder – oftentimes roof anchors will need to be installed so that a technician can safely repel down to the gutter needing to be cleaned.
This level of difficulty may increase the price to as much as $2 per linear foot.
Now, something to keep in mind when selecting a gutter cleaning company – oftentimes the cheapest price is not the best value. Gutter cleaning is a messy job, and a rushed job may leave debris on or around the house, additional damage to the gutters themselves, or may expose you to liability if they do not clean them in a safe, legal way. Make sure and ask a potential company if they offer a guarantee with their gutter cleanings!
