GUTTER CLEANING FAQS
The most obvious reason is because it can be a very unsafe for the inexperienced and unprepared householder. Our gutter cleaners have years of experience working at heights and using harnesses. We use the latest high powered mobile vacuum systems in the market to make the job safer and more efficient. This is not to mention that having clear gutters helps reduce the risk of fire, extends the lifespan of the gutters and makes the place look tidy.
If you provide your address along with a brief description on our ‘Quick Quote’ form, we can check the building with Google Satellite Images and Street View. We can normally give you the price the same day you make the enquiry. The price is based on several factors, such as how high the roof is, how full the gutters seem, the kind of roof and angle it’s pitched at. Whatever it does cost though, will be cheaper than getting a roofer to fix serious damage due to lack of maintenance.
To give you a rough idea: A small, single storey house could cost as little as $220. A large 2 storey house might be between $210 – $390.
Not in most cases. Usually, we can access the roof with a ladder and there is no need for the householder/business owner to be there while we are working. We do not need to come inside your house.
Yes we can. We can let you know if there are any broken tiles, bad joints or any other obvious causes for problems. We can also let you know what state your gutters are in and take photos to show you.
We can do minor repairs, which include replacing or repairing broken tiles, sealing gaps with silicone, and other similar jobs on the day.
First, we clear any leaves or sticks on the roof and gully areas. Then using our vacuum system we vacuum out the leaves and other gunk from the gutter into a drum in our van. We also clear out the downpipes, if necessary, using special tools to reach deep down into the pipes. Of course, we clean up any mess around the property too.
In many cases, having a leaf guard covering the gutters is useful. It is essential for areas in a high fire danger. These areas require fire resistant gutter guards. Other benefits are: Avoid blocked downpipes, rusting and leaking gutters, allows cleaner and faster flow of water to rain water harvest tanks.
Eventually, no matter what leaf guard you have, the gutters will need cleaning every 3 years.
Big Boys Gutter Vacuum uses “Ultra Guard” as we believe it is the best system we’ve seen. It’s UV resistant, anti-corrosive, CSIRO flammability rating of 0 (it won’t burn in a bushfire) and it’s the best value for money!
We would be happy to talk you through what’s most suitable for your place.
Each building needs to be assessed individually. We always work safely and we are fully covered by insurance. We use a harness, as per instruction by the ‘Work Safely at Heights’ qualification. All our workers are Working at Heights and Operational Health and Safety (OH & S) certified. Above all, we use common sense to remain completely safe at all times.
Yes we will. As we do not blow leaves of roof but vacuum it out of gutters it is contained and not blown over the ground. In fact, we normally leave the property cleaner than when we arrived.
This depends on the area you live in, in particular, the amount of deciduous trees that are higher than the roof line. Some of our most regular clients have them maintained monthly, others 3-4 times per year. Some have them cleaned once a year.
If you have Gutter Guard normally about once every 2-3 years.
Payment can be made to the gutter cleaner when he comes to do the job by Credit Card as all vans have EFTPOS
Machines or by prior arrangement Cash, Cheque or Bank Transfer. Commercial jobs are given a 14 day invoice.
Of course! Whether it is gutter cleaning for a Domestic, Commercial or Strata property, we are happy to issue a tax invoice.
Yes. We are covered by $10 million Public Liability insurance and all workers are also covered by Workers Compensation Insurance. We are happy to forward a copy of the Certificates of Currency on request.
