The cost of cleaning house gutters averages between $200-300 with each cleaning exercise. Expert advice recommends we clean our gutters at least two times a year.
Gutters without gutter guards have a very short economic life and it does not make sense to spend money each year cleaning a gutter that will need replacing sooner or later.
Hiring an Expert
Attempting to clean the gutters by yourself poses a lot of danger to the homeowner because they often lack the required expertise to affect the work with sound safety considerations. Many homeowners may choose DIY gutter cleaning in an attempt to lower the cost of the service. However, the safety risks far outweigh the cost-saving advantages.
The best cost-saving measure is to install your house with a reliable gutter guard system that eliminates clogging and also comes with a warranty to guarantee the system works clog-free during its lifespan.
It is also important to hire a company or an expert with valid insurance covers in case injuries or losses occur. You can often get a free quote. Any licensed contractor for gutter cleaning works should be insured unless you the homeowner will be willing to pay for injuries that may occur during such works such as one falling off a ladder.
