9 tips to maximize your savings on gutter cleaning
As a result of the high potential cost and time commitment involved, many homeowners put off making improvements to or maintaining their property. Regular gutter cleaning should be part of any homeowner’s maintenance routine in Calgary. But it is often overlooked and can end up costing more in the long run if put off for too long. Cleaning your gutters may save you a lot of funds in the long term, which many homeowners fail to recognize. In this post, we will be going over some tips on how to save money on gutter cleaning.
Arrange for maintenance in advance
Gutter cleaning is one of those services that should be avoided at peak times, like when everyone in the neighborhood is trying to get theirs done at once. The time-tested principle of supply and demand applies here. We aren’t recommending that you schedule gutter cleaning for the most inconvenient times of the year. Instead, we are pointing out that you may save money if you plan ahead. Furthermore, gutter cleaning services can be scheduled up to 6 months in advance, at which point both the work and the price are likely to be locked in. Last-minute bookings always cost more because businesses have to charge more to accommodate the extra work. During peak times, the typical cost of cleaning gutters, which is around $200 (a regular 2-story house), may easily rise to $300.
Talk to other service providers in Calgary
Finding a reliable roofing company to clean your gutters is one way to save money on gutter cleaning. As part of their roof repair or annual inspection services, some companies may even
clear your gutters for free or at a low cost. Take into account organizations that specialize in taking care of the outside of a building, such as landscaping firms, window-washing enterprises, etc. You might potentially save money by hiring one reliable company to do both the installation and maintenance of your gutters and downspouts. However, we suggest hiring a company that focuses on cleaning eavestroughs and downspouts more than any other tasks *wink-wink*. So do your research first.
Make a discount request
When it comes to gutter cleaning, several trustworthy businesses provide special deals. For example, to customers in the armed forces, the elderly, educators, and those applying for the
service for the first time. Find out what kind of deals and promotions are on the table by asking about them. Regardless of which bundle you choose, you will save money.
A DIY approach
The most obvious way to save money on gutter cleaning is to do the cleaning yourself. DIY gutter cleaning is the ideal way to both keep costs down and ensure that your gutters are always
in good working order. But don’t forget that your gutters aren’t the only thing that needs cleaning, especially when relocating. In order to make your home spotless, spring cleaning before moving house is necessary. This can be a tedious and perhaps dangerous due to the mess it creates. If you can safely clean even a portion of the gutters on your own, you can save money on professional gutter cleaning because most companies charge by linear foot.
Talk to your neighbors
If your next-door neighbor recently had their gutters cleaned, they may have a discount coupon they can present to you as a thank you for referring them to their service. Another option is to inquire as to whether any of your neighbors have a similar requirement. See if any gutter cleaning companies in your city offer group discounts for a block of houses when they have their gutters cleaned on the same day (we do *wink-wink*).
Prevent water damage
If blockages prevent water from flowing away from your home, the chance of flooding and water damage on the exterior of your property increases, potentially allowing water to seep inside and create cracks. So, you may save a lot of money on repairs to your home’s structure by making sure the gutters are clean. Please call your roofing company if any issues with your gutters have already affected the integrity of your roof.
Trim the trees
Trimming trees the right way can significantly reduce the weight they put on gutters. Thus decreasing the frequency of gutter cleaning and accompanying expenditures. However, areas
with a dense tree canopy above will require more regular gutter cleaning. This is due to the increased debris accumulation in the gutters. A qualified arborist can prune back any huge
branches. If left unattended, those might cause damage to the roof or gutters of your house.
Get seamless gutters
Another way to save money on gutter cleaning is to get seamless gutters. Comparatively, seamless gutters are far less hassle to clean than their segmented counterparts. Lacking joints,
they are more stable and less likely to clog, droop, or break. This type of gutter system is more streamlined and modern-looking, which might boost the aesthetic value of your home.
Think about installing gutter guards
Cleaning out your gutters on a regular basis is the first step in preserving the exterior of your property. A professional can perform this operation regularly, but unfortunately, it can be expensive. However, there are ways to reduce the cost. If you want to prevent dirt, leaves, and other debris from accumulating in your gutters and forcing you to pay for a costly cleaning service, you should consider installing gutter guards on your roofing system. Investing in a gutter guard well-suited to your specific roofing material and style will save money in the long run despite the higher initial investment.
Protecting against inflation may quickly be done through gutter cleaning and other preventative maintenance costs. If you want to get a discount that benefits both you and the company, you’ll need to put some time and effort into it. Avoid putting off gutter cleaning due to its high price tag. If you let it go unchecked, the expense of fixing the damage caused by clogged gutters might well outweigh the original cost of clearing them. Knowing how to save money on gutter cleaning can make a significant financial difference.
