• Gutters


    “I am writing this letter to thank you for doing such an expert job installing our Phalanx Gutter Guards. After installing three different types of gutter guards over the past 20 years, my wife and I were almost ready to give up on ever finding guards that would work for us. It's now been three years and the gutter guards you recommended are still working fine. Not even the squirrels can get into our gutters, which use to be a major problem for us.

  • Cleaning FAQs

    Do I need to be home?

    No, you do not.

    Can you clean my gutters if I have a gutter guard?

    No. Trying to clean your gutters with a gutter guard is like trying to wash your arm with a cast on it. The existing guards need to be removed in order to allow a thorough gutter cleaning.

    Will you re-install my gutter guard if I authorize you to take them off?

    No. If we had to remove gutter guard to clean your gutters, that means it has failed and it is unwise to re-install a failed product.

    How often do I need to clean my gutters?

    That depends entirely on how many trees are near your home – if there are no tall trees within 50 feet of your home, you probably only need to clean once a year. On the other hand, if you live in a heavily wooded area you should clean at least twice a year: after spring and autumn.

    How do you dispose of the debris from the gutters?

    All debris from the gutters is blown or carried to the surrounding woods or other natural areas of your property.

    Will you bag the debris from my gutters?

    Normally, bagging is not included in our standard price. If you would like to have your debris bagged and left at the curb, it can be done for an additional fee.

    How long does it usually take to clean my gutters?

    Usually, a gutter cleaning will take between 25 minutes and an hour and a half.

    What method do you use to clean the gutters?

    Our method for cleaning gutters can be found here.

    Can you clean the stains from the face of my gutters?

    Yes, we use a cleaner called Green Monster to clean the face of gutters. Click here for more information about Green Monster.

    If you see any squirrel holes or wood rot, will you let me know?

    Of course we will. We can even repair it for you!

    Will you clean my underground drains as part of the gutter cleaning?

    No, that is a separate service which has to be priced on a per-customer basis.

    If I’m not going to be home, how can I pay?

    We will make arrangements the day before.

    Since you’re already on a ladder, can you change my floodlight bulb for me?

    If you have your own bulb, we swap them out for $5 a bulb.

    Will you clean up after the job is done?

    Yes, we clean up the areas around where we worked. We will even blow off your roof, front porch, back porch, walkways, and driveway.

    If I have a gutter guard and just need my roof blown off, can you do that?

    Yes, as well as the front porch, back porch, walkways, and driveway.

    Will my dog leave the back yard while you’re here?

    Most of our installers have dogs, too. We would never let your dog escape, and we always will check behind us to make sure that the gate is closed.
