Gutters are designed and used to prevent problems caused by rain water coming of the roof and damaging fascia, windows below, water penetration into basements, erosion, and back splash onto the home staining wall surfaces and promoting mold rot and termites. HOWEVER, if not inspected routinely and cleaned free from debris, they can actually cause some of the problems they are designed to prevent. IF you have a heavy tree covered yard, most likely you had your roof cleaned of leaves, or have had to clean either your roof or gutters or gutter before. And if so, you may know how difficult it can be to clean gutters from a ladder, and especially if you have a 2 story home, it can be dangerous. So instead of putting yourself thru that hassle and danger hire the professionals to come take care of this for you. For residential gutter cleaning (removing debris from gutter and unclogging downspout if necessary) starts at:
- $1/ft on single story
- $2/ft on 2 story homes
Once you get your gutters cleaned out free of all the build up leaves and debris, unless you cut all the trees down in your 60ft radius of your home, why not prevent the problem in the future by adding a leaf guard gutter cover? We offer 2 basic types (see below)
Leaf Guard Gutter Covers
Micromesh Stainless Steel Gutter Covers
Premium leaf guards are the only maintenance free way to protect your gutters from over flow and getting backed up from leaves and debris, and clogged gutters, which you will never have to clean them out again. have to clean them out again. Because most of the other types of leaf guards either don’t allow enough water to pass thru, or cause the water to run right over top, create a dam and leaves and debris build up on top, or still let the smaller debris in such as pine needles . With these covers even shingle grit doesn’t pass thru, which over time, that shingle grit alone can weigh down a gutter and cause the gutter to loose volume and overflow, sometimes back to the fascia and if the fascia becomes rotten it will be weakened and not hold the screws, especially once its limited volume is now full of rainwater becomes heavy enough to pull away from the house and damage the gutter system and possibly anything or anyone below it. These are slightly more expensive than the aluminum model but way cheaper than the large chain retailers sell them for. You wont have to refinance the house or opt for financing payment plans for these and still get that great quality and worry free system as they offer. Starting around $6.50 / ft for adding the cover to an installation job.
6ft Aluminum Perforated Gutter Covers
These are the higher quality material and more expensive of the 3 gutter covers we typically sale. Because they are aluminum, they WILL NEVER RUST! They will last as long as your gutters will. They are ribbed to allow wind to blow under any sitting leaves off. These start out at $5 per foot installed w/ a gutter cleaning to your existing gutters.
