FAQ

Here are some of the most common questions asked

How often should I have my Gutters Cleaned?

We recommend 2x per year on avg. Once in the spring after the pollen and seeds fall and then in the fall after the leaves come down.

Do you clean the downspouts?

YES! After we scoop all the big stuff, and brush the small stuff, then we follow through with either the hose or blower to make sure the downspouts are clear.

Do I need to be home?

No, you do not need to be home. We will leave the invoice in the door.

Do you accept credit cards?

Yes, we accept Visa, Mastercard, and Discover. We also accept cash or checks.

Do you install gutter covers?

We do not sell, nor install gutter covers, gutter screens, or gutter guards. We have found they still need cleaned regularly even with covers on. So, we offer regular cleaning service plans instead of covering up your gutters.

Do you offer regular service plan?

Yes, we preschedule you during high demand times of year, according to the types of trees you have surrounding your house.

Do I have to prepay for the service plan?

No, but we offer that as an option with a little more of a discount.

Where do you put the debris you get from the gutters?

While cleaning we put the debris in buckets, dump it in the truck, and bring it back to the shop where we have four compost piles. Please call us if you want or need some compost.

DO I NEED MR. GREEN?

2 Simple steps to see If your gutters or Downspouts are clogged

To accomplish this without pulling out a ladder, I would walk around the outside of the house looking up at the gutter from underneath, for discoloration of the gutter. This will indicate there is water running over the lip of the gutter and down the face of the gutter. ...then I would walk around the outside of the house again, only this time, looking down, at the groumd under the gutters looking for soil or  mulch to be washed out around the foundation of the house. This will indicate the water is running over the lip of the gutter wearing a hole into the ground. In the event the gutter is over the driveway or a walkway, you should look for discoloration on the area under the gutter.

  • Walk around the outside of the house looking up at gutters.
  • Walk around the outside of house looking down at the ground.
  • Repeat with the change of every season.

Most homeowners dismiss their gutters until it's too late and wind up suffering the consequences. You should, in most cases, do this procedure 4 times per year. This doesn't necessarily mean a cleaning would be required. However, keep an eye on them. You don't know what may clump up in your spouts- tennis balls, birds' nests, a stick, roofing sediment. That is all in addition to the seasonal debris- seeds in the spring, leaves in the fall. Again, check them quarterly for proper flow during rain and expect to need a cleaning 1-2 times per year.
