How much does it cost?

There are many variables that will alter the price of your gutter clean. A small single story dwelling with a low pitch start at $150. Things that will make that price higher include:

2. Higher dwelling (more floors)
3. Steeper pitch roof (more dangerous)

There are also things that can make the price more affordable:
1. Regularly scheduled cleans are much more affordable than once off clean outs.

Do I need to clean my gutters even if I have NO trees on my property?

YES. At least, once a year. Often moss and dirt collect and hide under the eaves out of sight. On the surface they appear clean but as we begin cleaning you see how dirty they really are. All that dirt can become heavy and create sag and water pooling which will lead to rust and ineffective gutters. So even if you don’t have any trees near your property, YES, you still need to have them cleaned. If you clean your gutters more than once a year we offer a reduced price.

How often should I have my gutters cleaned?

We can assess your property and create a personalized cleaning schedule for it’s conditions. If you have trees on your property, here are some frequency suggestions:

  • Maple trees have a soft floating seed that quickly clogs and fill down pipes and gutters in Autumn.
  • Pine trees drop their quills regularly through out the year and may require a 6 month clean.

Will gutter guards reduce the need for gutter cleaning?

It will certainly reduce the frequency of gutter cleaning, however it does not remove the need. Please view our gallery for examples of the ingenuity of plants. Leaf litter can sit on top of the Gutter Guard and the break down can leave dirt under there. That can make a nice shady spot for Moss to thrive or for plant seeds to grow.

Our JK Gutter Cleaning technicians are also pretty keen gardeners, so they know just how important it is to trim trees while still keeping them looking lush and in sync with the rest of the building’s aesthetic.

It may seem easy enough to get up there and trim the trees surrounding your home, warehouse or other commercial space, but there is always danger involved when using ladders, so calling the pros is never a bad option.

Once the trees and other greenery have been trimmed, we will remove the rubbish so you don’t have to, and your property will enjoy clear gutters and clean roofing for longer.

We recommend having your Gutters cleaned more frequently or only installing the Guard in problematic areas with openings for cleaning.
