The Gutter Pros of Grosse Pointe and St Clair Shores
Updated: Oct 6, 2021
Who We Are
Morris Family Window and Gutter Cleaning was founded in 2019 by Mike Morris of St Clair Shores, Michigan. Mike has always been a go getter. Working in home-services cleaning gutters and windows by day, and as a tax professional by night.
Upon getting married and buying a new home, a new chapter unfolded for Mike. This is when he decided to go all in on his home service business and thus began Morris Family Window and Gutter Cleaning in St Clair Shores.
We began offering gutter cleaning, window cleaning, pressure washing, and driveway sealing services to St Clair Shores and the Grosse Pointes. Mike's hard work and dedication has allowed our team to expand over the years, to now employ four employees; and to extend our service area to include: Harper Woods, East Pointe, and the Greater Detroit area.
Today, we are proud to serve our community and handle the "dirty work" for you. But also, to keep your home protected and your families SAFE in the long term; these are our TOP priorities.
So you know you need gutter service, now what?
Why Hire a Professional Gutter Cleaning Service in Grosse Pointe
According to Home Advisor, the average price range for a professional gutter cleaning service is $70 to $200 for a one-story home. And goes up to $95 to $225 for a two-story home.
It is also recommended to have your gutters cleaned 1 to 3 times per year, depending on the type of weather we get in Grosse Pointe throughout the year or if you have a number of trees around your house.
However, if you don’t take care of your gutters, the national average of installing a new gutter system is $1,070. For bigger homes or more extensive replacements, the more expensive installation costs can be around $9,000. And that's in addition to the service you still need to have done on these new gutters and does not include any surrounding home damages from neglected gutter systems. Phew!
Let’s say you hire a professional gutter cleaning service in Grosse Pointe for a $100. Over 20 years, the cost incurred would be $2,000. This is in comparison with the installation of a brand new gutter system for potentially $4,000 every 5 years, not including the maintenance costs and any other damages that may happen in this time to the gutter system. That’s a pretty good investment, if we do say so ourselves!
Hiring a Professional Gutter Cleaning Service is a Long Term Investment
Well-maintained, high-quality gutters can last up to 20 years. On the contrary, if left untreated, damaged gutters can also affect the roofing and foundation structures of your home.
In extreme cases, the overflowing water can cause the foundation to crack and the building can actually fall. Roof and foundation repairs number in the tens of thousands, we don't even want you to have to go down that route.
At Morris Family Window and Gutter Cleaning, we recommend opting for professional gutter cleaning service twice a year due to the harsh Michigan weather in Grosse Pointe. Please give us a call in Spring and in the late Fall (dependent on your surrounding foliage). We want to try and get your gutters cleaned out before the freeze comes in early to mid December.
If you do notice your gutters are starting to sag or pull away from your home, please consider maintenance as soon as possible. It is always a better investment for your home to maintain your gutter system before costly repairs are needed.
You Minimize Your Risks by Hiring a Professional Gutter Cleaning Service
If you don't have experience working on a ladder, cleaning your own gutters can be challenging and potentially dangerous. Hiring a professional gutter cleaning service can save you the time and spare you, and others, the risk of injury. There are far too many injuries in Michigan from poor technique that could have been prevented by calling the pros! (we've seen it!)
As we are a licensed company, using Morris Family Windows and Gutter Cleaning also protects you from any and all liability for injuries or damages to you, a neighbor, or other hired help. Home professionals should have liability insurance and also worker's comp insurance (we do). If contractors or subcontractors are used, you want to make sure they have the appropriate licensing as well. *Always use a reputable, insured gutter cleaning service.
Note: Quality is Guaranteed
You should obviously expect a professional gutter cleaning service to do the job thoroughly. One of the benefits of hiring a professional is that he or she may also identify problems you might have otherwise overlooked.
For example, loose gutters or downspouts need to be addressed right away to save you from costly repairs down the road. If they are loose, there is already a concern and could turn into an even bigger issue if not addressed. While we are not licensed to repair, there are small fixes we can surely handle. We promise to always do our best to inform you of the best solution.
It is "Mike's way" to identify these types of issues and inform our clients right away. The sooner the problem is identified, the sooner it can be repaired, and the less cost in the end! If you have any specific questions or concerns, please bring them up at any point in the estimate or service process!
