Your gutters should be cleaned at least once per year, especially if you live near trees. A dirty clogged gutter can cause flow problems causing water to pool up before it reaches the drain. This creates two major risks. First, the mounting weight of wet leaves, mud, shingle asphalt, and water deforms your gutter and can even cause them to fall down. Second, once full or frozen over, the water from your roof has only two places to go. It can go over the edge of the gutter damaging your concrete and foundation below or down the back side of your gutter and down the side of your home causing water damage to your siding and Stucco. The water spillover can even make it into your walls causing water damage and flooding the interior of your home.
We thoroughly clean all horizontal runs and make sure the downspouts are flowing freely. The cost of gutter cleaning is based on the linear feet of gutter, the number of downspouts, as well as other factors such as height, access, & the pitch of your roof. A good rule of thumb to estimate cost is $1.00 per linear foot. Downspouts range from no charge to around $10 each. Additional charges may apply for excessive debris or height.

When you think about the most inconvenient problems your home could face, chances are that rain gutter settling is not the first thing that comes to mind. And when you’re trying to decide how to spend your time and money, it might not even make the list at all. However, there are several good reasons why rain gutter settling should be a top priority for your home.
If water is allowed to pool in your rain gutters due to leaves, sticks, dirt, asphalt shingle, pebbles or even leftover construction materials it can cause damage to the gutter, downspout, roofing. A blocked gutter will fill with water and eventually ice due to Utah's harsh winters. Blocked gutters can cause two primary issues, the first is that they can get heavy and start to sag or pull away from your homes soffit. As they pull away they can pull parts of your siding with it and expose wood to moisture through the now empty nail holes. The second problem is runoff from Utah's melting snow overflows the edge of the gutter instead of exiting cleaning out of your downspout. This water can land on the ground next to your foundation and even run up next to it and freeze.
