Each season change in the Delaware Valley brings gutter-clogging debris along with it. Leaves, twigs, moss, and mud can quickly accumulate in your gutters if they aren’t regularly cleaned, leading to warping, cracking, and impaired drainage. To protect your home and keep your gutters in mint condition, it’s important to have them cleaned at least twice a year. There are several factors that will impact gutter cleaning costs for your home.
Gutter Cleaning Costs Vary for Every Home
Gutter cleaning can be a tedious and dangerous chore that many homeowners may not be comfortable attempting. The gutter cleaning pros at PJ Fitzpatrick have the tools and experience needed to do the job thoroughly and safely. Keep in mind the following factors that impact gutter cleaning costs.
House height is one of the first factors that contractors will look at when they are pricing your gutter cleaning project. One-story homes will cost less to service than two or three-story homes because the gutters are easier and safer to access.
Length of the Gutter
Your contractor will determine the cost of cleaning your gutters by linear footage. The longer your gutters, the higher the cleaning costs. Larger homes cost more to service than smaller homes because there is more linear footage of gutter to clean.
Seamed or Seamless
Cleaning costs for seamed and seamless gutters are typically the same. However, repair and replacement costs for seamless gutters are significantly higher.
Condition of the Gutter
If your gutters have been regularly maintained and cleaned, you can expect cleaning costs to be lower. Gutters with excessive debris buildup will take longer to clean, and therefore, cost more. Having your gutters cleaned multiple times each year can prevent debris buildup, damage, and high cleaning costs.
Downspouts cost more to clean than the rest of the gutter but having them properly serviced is an important part of keeping your gutters in good working condition. Each downspout on your home will need to be cleaned, so expect costs to be higher if your home has multiple downspouts.
While your contractor is cleaning your gutters, they may replace fasteners, end caps, and outlets. Replacement parts, along with labor costs for the repairs, may impact your gutter cleaning costs.
Gutter Guards Eliminate Gutter Cleaning Costs
If you live in a wooded area, it doesn’t take long for your gutters to become clogged with debris. You can lower your gutter cleaning costs by having gutter guards installed on your home.
