Gutters are necessarily located above eye level, putting them out of sight and often out of mind. Because you can’t easily see inside them, it’s easy to forget they’re up there collecting leaves, sticks, dirt, and debris while you’re going about your day, month after month. Unfortunately, you forget at your peril: clogged gutters aren’t just messy and kind of gross (think mold, animal droppings, and more). They are dangerous for your home in a variety of ways.

To start with, a clogged gutter is a heavy gutter: the brackets may break under the pressure and your gutters could fall off your house. That’s the best-case scenario.

Not only do all those leaves and debris create a lovely home and breeding ground for a variety of pests, including mosquitoes and other bugs, but clogged gutters can also cause water to overflow. Instead of traveling down the gutter to its intended destination, that water drips down the side of your house. Aside from over-watering whatever plants are growing below it, that water can also damage your roof, siding, and even your foundation, resulting in costly and time-consuming repairs by the time you notice the damage.

Gutters are on your house for a reason, after all, and that reason is to prevent water damage. Your gutters can only do their job if they’re clean and clear.

Gutter cleaning is an efficient, cost-effective way to prevent a lot of headache and hassle. This should be done at least twice a year, though your gutters may require more frequent cleanings if you tend to get more build-up of leaves and other debris throughout the year.

At Better View Landscapes, we offer professional gutter cleaning along with a wide range of other landscaping services. For more than 25 years, we’ve been keeping gutters clean in Amherst, MA and the entire Pioneer Valley, and we can clean yours, too. Contact us to learn more.

We Make It Easy to Get Started on Your Landscaping Project

At Better View Landscapes, we strive for clarity and transparency. All of our contracts are clearly outlined, with no hidden fees. We tailor your service plan to meet the particular needs of your property, so you can rest assured that your landscaping will look its best year-round. Getting started is simple:

  • Request a Quote

    Contact our office using this online form or call the office directly. We will ask for details about your property, the kind of services you require, and your budget requirements. If you fill out our form, you can expect a call from our representatives within one business day.

  • On-Site or Virtual Meeting

    Once we have determined that your project is a good fit, we will set up an on-site visit or virtual meeting, depending on your project. For design projects and more complex landscaping contracts, we will visit your property to gather information. If you require basic maintenance services, we will conduct an easy virtual meeting via Zoom to clarify the details before preparing your proposal.

  • Estimate

    For our maintenance services, we will prepare a proposal within 3 business days of our first meeting and send it to you for review and approval. Most initial design proposals will be ready within one business day of our initial meeting. Following this design concept meeting, we will prepare your agreement and pricing as discussed and send it to you for approval.

  • Your Custom Plan

    Once we have completed contract discussions, you can review and sign your design plan or care plan. We will request your installation deposit before scheduling work, and your design fee must be paid prior to beginning design work. Most initial design renderings will be ready within ten business days after your design proposal has been accepted, with a follow-up meeting(s) upon completion of the initial design plan. For landscape maintenance plans, we will provide you with an invoice in the week following each service visit, and payment will be charged against the card you have on file.

  • Agreement & Work Begins

    Once you have signed your service agreement, maintenance and installation services will be added to the schedule. You will receive regular communication from our team to ensure that any questions and concerns are addressed quickly. Our team will be available for any questions you may have after each maintenance service visit, and a comprehensive walk-through will be conducted with you upon completion of your installation project.

  • Follow-up Care

    For maintenance contracts, you can expect monthly follow-ups to ensure your satisfaction. For installation services, we will reach out to you after the work is complete to provide follow-up care recommendations and service.
