What’s the best way to clean and maintain seamless gutters?
You should clean your gutters a minimum of once a year. However, we recommend cleaning your gutters two or three times a year if you have overhanging trees in your yard. You should also clean clogged gutters after severe storms. Clogs often occur where downspouts join the gutter system, so inspect these areas closely.
To clean your gutters:
- Wear a long-sleeved shirt and rubber gloves.
- Have a good extendable ladder available. Standoff stabilizers are ideal to keep the ladder from damaging your paint or stucco.
- Use a small plastic scoop to remove gunk. You can purchase a gutter scoop from the hardware store, or even a child’s sand shovel can be handy.
- After you’ve cleaned debris, you can flush gutters and downspouts with a garden house. This is also a great way to spot any leaks.

What types of payment do you accept?
We accept cash, check and credit cards.
What sizes and type of material are the gutters you install?
We install 5- and 6-inch aluminum seamless gutters. If you have a stucco façade or a metal roof, we might recommend 6-inch gutters. We also install 7-inch gutters, however, these are strictly for commercial or barn-like structures and come in 20-foot sections. The best way to determine what size rain gutters you need is to have us come and measure your structure during your free estimate.
