How Much Does Gutter Cleaning Cost?

post E-mail post Post   Comments (19)

A clean gutter is designed to draw water away from a home's foundation, according to Do It Yourself.com. When a gutter overflows with debris, it may also cause roof damage.

A gutter cleaning service may be priced by the square footage of the home, or the linear foot of gutter.

Typical costs:

  • Cleaning the gutters on a single-story 1,500-square foot house with about 160 linear feet of gutter will run $70-$200.
  • Cost for a single-story 2,000-square foot home with around 180 linear feet of gutter is about $90-$225.
  • A two-story 2,500-square foot home with 200 linear feet of gutter runs $100-$250.

What should be included:
  • A gutter cleaning service should clean out the leaves and debris, bag the waste and then flush the entire system. Some services will also inspect and tighten fasteners and reseal end caps and outlets.
Additional costs:
  • For three-story homes, or anywhere a 40-foot ladder is used, a second worker is required. Add about $75-$200 to the price.
  • Downspouts can take extra time and may bring the total cost up to $500 if seriously clogged.
Discounts:
  • Some companies offer a 15% discount for seniors and discounts of up to 20% for repeat service.

I heard from a neighbor who uses them to clean her house and windows that their house and window cleaning service is awesome as well.

I had 80 ft of gutters cleaned and a few brackets where it sagged before. Also had the guards put on even though the contractor told me nylon mesh were the worst. He recommended the slotted ones and now I know why. These cheap plastic ones break apart in the gutter but still worked for a year.

Firm: Junk-Be-Gone, LLC of NY
My wife and I called Steve from Junk Be Gone to clean our gutters 4 years ago. We will never have anyone else besides them do this. They clean our gutters twice a year because our house is under 2 large maple tree. They hand clean the gutters and place the muck in buckets. There is no mess on the ground after they are done. They flush our system with the garden hose, bang in loose nails, inspect our gutters and roof for leaks/missing shingles. They also sealed a leak we had a couple years ago and its still holds up. They charge us $85 the first year and discounted our price by $5 dollars each year. Our next service will cost $60. We also use them to power wash our house and deck, wash the windows, and snow plow our driveway when we leave for FL in the winter. Steve has a great business that does it all. He's a man of his word and does the work himself. Check out his website at www.JunkBEgoneNY.com (make sure you spell it just like this or you will be directed to another site) They are located in Orange County, NY (Chester)

We had Mrs. Squeegee clean out gutters, they hand scoop it...nice thing about their gutter cleaning service is that they don't use shop vacs to blow debris/leaves off the gutter. They are on-time, neat, clean and don't left a mess on your yards. Call them up they give verbal quote over the phone 734-719-1188, have them come out next week to do window cleaning for us. Very reasonable price and great service. Thanks

The original article is mostly right. The average cost is a fair estimate. It's the additional cost category that I find amazing. When I got a verbal quote over the phone site unseen) from Mr. Green, he said he's never charged over $300. He assured me that once a visual assessment is made, he sticks to that his quote.

These guys were incredible! Came across an ad online for their company, gave them a call and they were out the next day cleaning my gutters. It was two young men, both very professional and quick. They each used large shop vacs to get all the debris out and took before and after photographs from the roof level. Immaculate services, definitely going to use the pressure washing and window cleaning in spring.

My gutters were packed and overflowing and too high for us too reach with our ladder. My husband and I put off cleaning as long as possible until one day I ran across the website of www.capitalguttercleaning.com and we scheduled our job online and had them cleaned by the next afternoon. I'll be using these guys again this spring!

Chris of Coolscapes cleans my gutters for $50 - actually it's $100, but that's for both my house and my rental property. It's a pretty good deal compared to other quotes I've gotten, though for this price he doesn't flush the downspouts fully I think.

My gutters were packed with leaves and I think there were some plants growing inside. I had a waterfall in front of my door every time it rained. So I called this guy my neighbor used. Not only was this guy on time and friendly but also thorough. He made sure the gutters were completely clean and working properly. I believe the price was reasonable for the work performed.
