Question DetailsAsked on 12/16/2012

Have gutters two/three stories high; having difficulty finding someone who will clean them thoroughly. Any sugestions?

I have a home with high gutters, and also on a light hill - need high ladders. Cannot find gutter cleaners who have equipment to clean them (at least clean them properly). Does anyone have any companies that can do this? Any other suggestions

If you can't find one on Angie's list then you might try to call a guttering company or a siding installer. They will have the equipment but they will charge for it. Noone is going to bring out 30' ladders for $100. Expect to pay over $400 for third floor gutter cleaning on a small job.

I am a 10 year veteran of the Gutter Wars. Cleaning them and braving the continious risk of ladders is the #1 most dangerous project homeowners face. You are penny wise and pound poor not to install a gutter cover to end your nightmare. There are 200+ different products for sale.
1)Cheapie screens sold at big box stores (Lowes etc) installed are about $5 a foot.
2)Revese curve systems. (Gutter Topper, LeafGuard,etc) Have opening to let water in & debris. (Bottom Line Secrets) Can come with a service agreement for dealer to clean them as necessary. Beware no company has ever offered free service and not gone out of business. (Example basement waterproofing companies). From $7 to $30 a foot.
3) A microfiltering stainless steel gutter cover (MasterShield, LeafFilter,etc). Manufacters money back if gutter clogs. From $12 to $20 a foot.
Putting gutter covers on your home does not have to be an expense. Ask a realator if any problem home does not go up in value when they sell it with a no clog gutter system installed.
