PRICING AND HIRING TIPS
The cost of gutter cleaning depends on the size and height of your home. Special equipment may be required to clean gutters of a three-story home, for example. Prices range from $75 to $225 for an average home, depending on the length of gutters and height of the house. Most companies charge a flat fee per foot of gutter, but the cost can rise, depending on the complexity of the work.
If you’re thinking about having gutter covers installed, be aware that the price usually starts at around $1,500.
To find a reliable gutter expert, get recommendations from family, friends and neighbors, or check a trusted online review source. Ask for and check references, get several estimates and confirm that the company you hire is properly licensed and adequately insured.
