How often is gutter cleaning needed in Delaware if you have gutter guards?
Updated: Feb 15
Many homeowners ask us if they still need to clean their gutters if they have gutter guards. The short answer is yes. But not as frequently. While many gutter guard companies claim they eliminate gutter cleaning all together, that is not the case especially in Delaware.
Without gutter guards, a home may need to have gutter cleaning twice a year, generally in the spring and again in the fall. Homes that have guards may reduce the need for a twice a year service depending on the amount of trees and what they shed throughout the year.
How Much Do Gutter Guards Cost? How Much Does Gutter Cleaning Cost?
Pricing depends on the style and type of gutter guards you use, but you can expect to pay between $7.00- $10.00 per linear foot. While this may seem like an expensive investment, a professional installed gutter protection system will pay for itself over time in cleaning savings. Having your gutter cleaned in Delaware depends on a few factors including the linear footage of your gutter and the last time you had them cleaned. On average it can cost between $179.00 for ranch homes and $200-$250 on two story properties. Large custom homes with many feet of gutter start at $300 and up. One thing you want to keep in mind is that gutter guards do not prevent ice dams from forming during Delaware harsh winter months. The best way to prevent ice dams is in the fall to call a gutter cleaning company out to remove the trapped debris that does get trapped into your gutters that the guards don’t catch and make sure whatever gutter guy you choose can repair gutter leaks which causes the vast majority of ice dams.
