"They cleaned the gutters just fine; however they had a "hard sell" approach to try to get me to pay extra for them to put on a moss
" on the roof while there. The guy called me while standing on my roof to say there was some moss and they wanted to put on a moss
for an additional charge. There is *very* little moss on our roof, and I felt this was unnecessary. I asked him what was in the moss
, and he didn't know. He didn't know if it would affect the copper gutters on our house, or if it would cause environmental damage. I told him no thanks. He called back again a few minutes later and wanted to talk about it again. I was not interested.

"
(and now with his sidekick
) are super organized, are on time, wear little boot covers when they are inside, have" the right tools and managed a skylight situation that required some tricky moves to clean.

Two notes #1 20 feet is going to cost you more per foot that 100 feet.  #2 All prices are relative to Your market ie Omaha is less expensive than St Lious.  Here expect to pay on the 100 foot job $5 to $6 per foot of gutter (5" aluminum) plus the $4 to $5 a foot for the downspouts and $15 to $20 for soffit and facsia covering ie vinyl soffit panels and painted or vinyl clad aluminum covering the fascia.  In the trade a soffit & fascia job.

Unless you are constructing a French Drain (dry well filled with rock or debris and no exit) style system you use a non perforated system.  Cut the plastic flush on the angle where it daylights if the slope is great enough,  If you need it river rock can be used to construct a dry riverbed type drainage ditch out from the daylighted drain.

Short answer: It's up to you. Many home remodeling contractors, including exterior remodelers, don't expect a tip since they've already provided a set price within the contract, but if you really feel that they've gone above and beyond, you may feel obliged to tip them. Angie herself answered a very simliar question in a recent column: Should I tip my remodeling contractor?
?

Not knowing what type of eaves (the lower edge of the roof) you had before the new soffits were intalled I have to guess what might have happened. If you had closed eves (no soffits, just rafter tails with blocking between) before as was done on some older homes it is possible they removed or drilled holes through to the attic. When this was done there should have been a baffle installed to direct the air flow up and over the insulation. This would only be possible for the soffit installer to do if the wood blocking was removed and not just had holes drilled in it. If the insulation contractor did not go all the way to the exterior wall that could very well be the cause or it he did not make sure the insulation was pushed down to make contact with the ceiling material. If the house was never cold before I would bet the problem is at the eaves. You should call the insulation company for an answer.

The ice build-up in the gutter should not, provided they are properly attached and solid, rip out the gutter.

 

When you get snow slides and large chunks of frozen precip that let go and slide down the roof with velocity, those are what tear off the gutters and create damage.

 

If you are concerned about the snow load, a snow rake and/or a proper roofer can remove some of the accumulated snow. 

 

Some ice damming is unavoidable in the correct conditions but I would urge you to look into proper ventilation of the roof and air sealing and insulation.  This will reduce your home's inclination to form these ice dams in the future.

I bought a $99 special, paying in advance. I needed the work done soon but he pushed me back a week. Then when it was time for the appointment, he calls 10 minutes into the schedule window and says he won't be able to make it. Pitiful. don't know about the quality of his work, but be forewarned on reliability.

They discovered cracked molding in my chimney and loose flashing. Offered a very reasonable price for those services as well. The person came out while I was at work but the company later sent me pictures of the resolved work upon invoicing. Very satisfied.

Initially engaged to clean gutters with the expectation that more work might be needed, which proved to be the case.
Crews involved with all work were on time, professional, informative, efficient. Work required that was identified was thoroughly explained along with timeline and costs. Video summary of work performed was provided.
No surprises and we were most pleased with the results.

Angie's price covered only 10 windows. I had him do an additional 20 windows. He added on windows at fair price. Very efficient and no suprises.

We hired this company to clean our gutters through Angie’s list based on its ratings. The gentleman showed up and said the gutters do not need to be cleaned (he only looked at the garage gutter where we do not have any trees). We have 4 large Oak trees on our property that are 100+ years old so we have our far share of leaves and acorns. Our gutter guards keep majority of the debris out but the gutters still get clogged. We showed him evidence of the water spilling out of the gutter directly under one of the Oak trees which he acknowledged based on the splashing

on our foundation. He reluctantly got his ladder which he seemed burdened by . He proceeded to clean out the gutter then ran a hose to flush out the debris. Wow what a surprise! The gutter was clogged! He threw the debris in the yard and did not clean up after himself. He used our hose and in the process knocked over a ceramic bird bath and did not pick it up. Thankfully it did not break. He missed two gutters on the side of the house and acknowledged it when we approached him on it. The experience was awful, he was completely unprofessional, clearly did not want to be there nor did he take pride in his work. I understand this is a family run company but it’s too bad this worker represented your family in such a poor manner. In the end you’re only as good as the people you hire.

The first guy came out, pressure washed the driveway, and when I asked why there were large circles and lines all over the driveway, he said that they'd disappear after the driveway dried. THEY DID NOT, and my driveway looks so much worse now than when it was dirty. At least then, it was uniformly dirty and it didn't stick out like a sore thumb. So another guy came out this week, many weeks since the first guy because, as they told me, they are very backed up with appointments. Great customer service!!! (That's sarcasm.) This second guy was at least very honest. He told me that the first guy must have been in a hurry and did such an unprofessional and unskillful job that he basically left circular pits and stripes in my driveway. He told me that there was no way to get those weird designs out of the concert and that I could just have my whole driveway painted to make it uniform again. So if you want your driveway to be the talk of your neighborhood, run, don't walk, to your computer to schedule an appointment with this 3rd rate company. I contacted Angie's List and they told me that they expect the companies on their list to be professional and to have good customer service. Not so for Water Works Pressure Cleaning. They should be called Water Works Pressure Disasters.
If you're a smart consumer, you won't use them. If you're not so smart, then use them and keep your fingers crossed!

Overall, it went well. They answered all of our questions. They cleaned the gutters just fine, but it didn't seem to take very long. So even though it was a "deal" I purchased I still feel like it was too much money. They did seem like they were in a hurry.

The 3 man crew arrived within the scheduled window. They hand cleaned the debris from the gutters, bagged it up and then rinsed the gutters out. Before and after pictures were e-mailed after the job was complete. We will use them again and I would definitely recommend them.
