Cleaning or Gutter Guards: Which is Right for You?
Gutter Guards: 5 Reason why
When it comes to your gutter system, it is extremely important to keep them maintained and flowing properly. If you have an open gutter system, we recommend getting a cleaning twice a year; once in the Spring and once in the Fall.
On average, a typical gutter cleaning cost can range from $200-$400 (higher end being during peak season). At The Brothers that just do Gutters we offer a Maintenance Cleaning Agreement which immediately puts you into our database for twice a year consistent cleanings. During our Spring cleaning window, and our Fall cleaning window we will automatically come out to your home to perform these cleanings for you in order to maintain your system, without the hassle of calling/getting on the schedule each time. During Fall, there is a very short window to do cleanings. We need to wait for all of the leaves to fall, while also getting the cleaning in before the first snow storm. For this reason, signing up for our Maintenance Agreement is very beneficial. Because of the busyness of the Fall season, and the incredibly small window we have to perform cleanings during this time, our Maintenance Agreement clients get first priority when it comes to scheduling Fall cleanings.
Our interior gutter maintenance includes:
- Thorough cleaning and inspection by professionals
- Leaves and debris cleaned from the inside of gutters
- All downspouts, elbows, and joints cleaned
- Removal of all gutter debris from premises
- Sidewalks, decks, patios, and driveways swept of debris as a result of the gutter cleaning
- Minor repairs such as re-pitching gutters, re-securing elbows and hangers, and even replacing up to 10’ of damaged downspout
- A friendly reminder from The Brothers that just do Gutters when it’s time to clean
Another alternative to full interior gutter cleanings twice a year, is gutter guard installation, which we highly recommend to our clients, especially those with a lot of surrounding trees, pine needles, etc. By installing gutter guards, you increase the protection of your system, and have lowered the maintenance significantly. Instead of needing interior cleanings twice a year, you now will only need to occasionally brush off the top of your guards, and this too is often not necessary. Most debris that inevitably lands on top of your guard during storms will dry up and blow off on its own. Not only does the maintenance decrease once installing the right guards, but your system gains strength and they help to prevent clogs and preserve the proper flowing of water within your system, which will help your home to stay protected against water damage.
The Maintenance Agreement can be beneficial to homeowners in all gutter situations including brand new gutters, gutters 5-10 years old, and gutters installed more than 20 years ago. Regularly maintaining gutters will help to preserve your system and aid in lasting its full expected lifespan. Also, as part of our program, minor repairs are performed which will also help preserve, and expand your system’s life, and keep them flowing properly all year long.
