Other determining costs of gutter cleaning:
The size of your home is one of the first components in determining the price of gutter cleaning. The larger your home, the more time the job will take, and thus the more it will cost.
Pitch of the Roof
A flatter roof that can be walked on will be less expensive than a steep roof that requires the person cleaning the gutters to secure themselves with ropes and harnesses.
What type of roof is it? There are instances in which a roof cannot be walked on because of the roofing material. A house that has a roof that can be easily walked on will be priced lower than a roof that requires you to clean the gutters from a ladder.
The cleaning of underground drains will typically take more time and will increase the price of your gutter cleaning.
Amount of Debris
Excess debris and blockage will increase the length of time the job will take and may increase the price of gutter cleaning. If there are excessive amounts of debris, gutter cleaning contractors can add a surcharge for clearing gutters.
Commercial vs. Residential
The cost of a commercial gutter cleaning is higher than residential.
