Gutter Cleaning And Improvement
Gutters are one of the most important, and overlooked features that protect your home, and maintain its value. They collect and distribute all the water from your roof, keep your basement or crawlspace drier, and can even water your garden.
Number one is to keep your gutters clean and properly attached to your home. We offer gutter cleaning services, since not everyone wants to be climbing around on their roof. This should be done at least twice per year, once before the snow flies, and once after the snow gives way to the Spring rains. If you have lots of nearby trees, you may need to do this much more often, or invest in “leaf free” gutters that reduce the buildup, but may still need to be cleaned periodically.
For standard homes, without extra high gutters, cleaning is $1 per linear foot to clean the gutters, with a $129 minimum within our “in town” Boulder County service area. Additional charges may apply in further away mountain locations.
It is key that gutter downspouts discharge the water ten feet from the home, or at least on a hill that slopes away from the foundation of the home. If the water dumps right by the foundation, or the land slopes back to the home, your gutters are actually working against you by directing the water right where you don’t want it. Let us help you protect your investment by helping your gutters to do their job according to “best-practice” and reduce the chance of damage to your home.
