Cleaning out your gutters: it’s a dirty job, but someone has to do it…right? Well, if you don’t have gutter guards installed, the answer is yes. You’ll need to either clean out your gutters yourself or hire someone else to do it.

We totally understand not wanting to take on this messy task!

Ned Stevens Gutter Cleaning is a company providing gutter-cleaning services in 17 states (as of this writing), and we’ve compiled all the facts you need so you can decide whether Ned’s Gutter Cleaning is right for you.

We’ll also look at what might be a better alternative, so you won’t have to worry about cleaning out your gutters again.

In this article:

What Is Ned Stevens Gutter Cleaning?

Ned Stevens Gutter Cleaning is a company providing gutter-cleaning services in 17 states in the U.S. They not only clean gutters but also provide repair and replacement services.

The company recognizes that when your gutters are filled with debris, your home is at risk of developing a number of issues involving the roof, foundation, and mold, to name just a few.

In addition to gutter cleaning services, Ned Stevens also provides roof cleaning, window cleaning, dryer vent cleaning, chimney cap installation, and mosquito and tick control, among other services.

What Do Their Customers Say?

Overall, reviews of Ned’s Gutter Cleaning are mixed. On the Ned Stevens website, positive reviews are mostly featured. Here are a couple of them:

“Great company with great service. Not only did they do a great job on the gutters but advised of some issues with some of the roof shingles so I could get them addressed. The two personnel who did the actual work were absolutely professional. I highly recommend this company.” – Myer Perry, one year ago

“Ned Stevens technicians did an excellent job on cleaning off our roof and cleaning our gutters. They were professional and explained an area of concern that needed to be addressed. The customer service department is knowledgeable and was able to explain the program to keep our roof and gutters clear year round. It was very cost-effective and takes the worry out of addressing ongoing roof and gutter cleaning.” – Mark Cirangle, one year ago

On, however, there are quite a few negative reviews:

“DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THEM. Particularly under contract. They show up when they want. Most recently in April for what they claim was a December service. Last fall they came in early October for a fall service. Customer service is impossible to reach, and the bills come from an address called “qualityassurance@” which does not accept email. Definitely a vendor to skip.” – Richard A, May 2022

“‘Clean-up after the clean-up’ After the clean up I had to put on my coat, go outside and clean up the leaves. They blew some leaves in the street & it looked like onto my neighbor’s yard. They also put them in plastic bags & put them in the street — not permitted by our Public Works dept. The bags were very heavy & I had to pick them up myself. For the amount of $, I expected gutter clean-up and haul away.” – Audrey G., December 2022

Since Ned Stevens Gutter Cleaning is a company with many locations, it’s feasible that the quality of the work may depend on the individuals performing the service.

This Old House also published a review of Ned’s Gutter Cleaning. Among the positives, they offer gutter-cleaning service plans, and they’ve been in business since 1965. On the downside, the company doesn’t offer gutter guards, and they’re limited to 15 states (though they seem to have expanded to a couple of additional states since that writing).

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should gutters be cleaned?

If you don’t have gutter guards installed, we recommend cleaning out your gutters two or three times a year, depending on how many trees you have around your property. If you have a lot of trees, you may need to do it more frequently, as debris will accumulate more quickly.

What happens if you don’t clean out your gutters?

Neglecting your gutters can lead to a multitude of issues, including roof damage, foundation damage, water damage under your siding, and damage to the gutters themselves. However, if you have LeafFilter gutter guards installed, they not only come with a clog-free guarantee, but you can also say goodbye to cleaning out your gutters on a regular basis.

Are gutter guards worth it?

If you’d like to cut down on your gutter maintenance and avoid many of the issues that accompany clogs inside your gutters, then yes. Fortunately, we offer year-round professional installation services for our LeafFilter gutter guards, so you won’t need to wait for the spring or summer to start protecting your home.
