Normally, we clean out our gutters at the start of every winter season because we there are 2 large maple trees that border the sides of our house. It's normally an all day job and so last year we were lazy and didn't end up doing it. Luckily, we ha a pretty dry winter, spring and summer so it didn't end up making much of a difference. However, with the fall season coming up, I didn't think that we could go another fall without cleanign out the gutters. I had been asking him for weeks and weeks to get it done and he kept putting it off, so I told him I was going to go on the Homestars website, read the reviews for gutter cleaners and get a couple of quotes. Champion provided the most reasonable quote and I liked the review that I read on the homestars website. We ended up going with them and they did an excellent job. They were professional, on time and efficient. And for the amount of time it takes us to do it on our own, this was definitely money well spent. I don't think my husband will ever be willing to clean the gutters again.
