Rain gutters are your number one soldier for combatting invasive rainwater. Without gutters, the water will wick back onto the fascia and soffit areas, and usually within three years, the first signs of wood rot are noticed. And that's just the beginning.
Water beating down around the home's foundation will cause cracked concrete, flooded basements and crawl spaces, black mold issues.... the list continues and it's unthinkable not to have gutters nowadays. Gutters are one of those homeowner duties that must be carried out diligently or problems will begin. Just like cleaning the dryer vent or changing the AC filters. Not having gutters will cost 10x more for water related repairs in the long run.
Another valuable reason for gutters is to extend your roof's lifespan, and the gutter's drip edge will help prevent water from wicking back onto the the home's woodwork and framing areas. Gutter channel water into the downspouts to be moved away from the home's fascia, soffit and foundation areas.
This water becomes stagnate if left standing in the gutters. Proper water management and disposal of rainwater is extremely valuable in preventing foundational issues, cracked sidewalks, flooded basements, rotted fascia and water damaged soffit are only a few reasons rain gutters are so important.
Gutters also protect the home's siding, especially wood or stone-based sidings. Water is pervasive and overflowing roof edges with no gutters to channel the water, will cause water to stream down the home's siding and cause major water damage.

This depends on a few things; the linear footage of gutters, the number of stories. DIY gutter cleaning can take several hours to finish. FYI, two or more stories high gutters often get neglect because of hard-to-reach areas, and landscaping prevents access. Neglecting gutter cleaning dangerous and can result in some costly damages to your roof and foundation.
Some area of gutter system may begin to overflow during heavy rains. Downspouts not draining means clogged gutters. Debris building up over the top of your gutter is not a good sign. Oil from shingles creates a striping on the front of the gutter, which is an indication water frequently overflows. It is important to note that gutter cleaning is necessary even without the presence of trees. Grit and debris will collect over time; animals will nest in gutters; pollen mixed with shingle grit creates a heavy barrier that dams water and causes gutters to sag.
Fall and Spring are good times to clean those gutters. Remove all the debris and then flush out with water hose all shingle grit and small debris. The Today Show has a great article on when and how to clean those gutters.
Depending on the size of the home and the number of levels usually dictates prices. For instance, expect to pay a minimum $225.00 to as much as $600.00 for complicated or excessive gutter issues (NOTE: Most cleaning companies have a minimum to send a licensed and insured crew.) Uninsured gutter cleaners can cost homeowners thousands of dollars in liability claims, so spring for the pros with good reviews. It's cheaper in the long run.
How the gutters are cleaned is important also. Ensure the cleaner-crew hand-cleans the gutters and does not use a leaf blower, which only causes a big mess. Ask for the gutter debris to be hand bagged and carried away from your property. HelloGutters hand bags the debris and we inspect the area to ensure the debris is not left on sidewalks, landscaping or decks. Give us a call for gutter cleaning in Huntsville Alabama at 256-361-9996, or give us a call for gutter installation in Mobile or Baldwin County Alabama at 251-202-9349. Or just send us a request and we'll do the rest.
HelloGutters highly discourages untrained individuals from cleaning gutters. First is safety; only trained people should climb a ladder if it's over eight feet high. Most gutters are twelve feet and over in height, which means you will be working on a ladder while balancing yourself and a debris bucket, plus you'll be using the other hand to scoop debris. NOT VERY SAFE!
Next consider what's lurking in the gutter system; bees’ nests, squirrels, opossums, we've seen it all. In addition, lack of proper training and proper tools is another hazard... and a licensed professional might be able to identify other issues, which an untrained homeowner may overlook, causing even more long term water damage.

As of today, Nov 6, 2021, new seamless aluminum gutters are averaging $16-$24 per linear foot professionally installed with a warranty. There are several factors contributing to cost; 5" or 6" gutter size, 25' or higher sometime requires a lift to gain access to hard-to-reach roof lines. In 2019 gutter coil was 1/3 the cost it is day, so prices have increased accordingly. Another contributing factor is the gutter coil gauge. Gutters are available in three industry size thicknesses that homeowners should be aware of; .024 mm aluminum; .027 and .032 thick. .032 is generally used for commercial applications. .024 is the cheapest and generally has an one year warranty, whereas, .027 has a 20 year warranty and is all we recommend (and install) at HelloGutters.
