Gutters Atlanta - Newspaper article talking about the serious damage ice can cause to your gutters and to your home. Get those gutters cleaned Atlanta!

This is the time of year to make sure all those fall leaves are out of your gutters and your downspouts are clog-free with no blockages. Clogs cause water to retain in your gutters..and that water turns to HEAVY ice in the winter.

The small cost of having your gutters professionally cleaned NOW can save major expense down the road.

The Sentinel-Standard news website has a great article talking about the danger of ice dams accumulating on your gutters this winter.  According to the article, "…ice accumulates at the lower edge of a sloped roof, usually at the gutter.  Once an ice dam forms, the potential water damage can be serious. ".  This article is absolutely correct – ice can cause serious damage to your gutters and to your home during the winter.

I almost fell for the "$85 gutter cleaning" ads you see on the internet until I had the good sense to check the Better Business Bureau first.

Turns out the company offering the supposed $85 rate has a "F" rating with the BBB and is NOT credited with them due to FALSE ADVERTISING.

That company I'm talking about calls itself "Atlanta's BEST Gutter Cleaners" - but this is what the Better Business Bureau has to say about them:

"BBB has questioned this firm's advertising on many occasions regarding underselling claims and superlative claims. BBB also questioned this firm's use of their advertising on Craigslist, and Google. This company had listings showing different telephone numbers and addresses that were not their actual physical address. This company has responded to each matter but has not always properly addressed or corrected the matter. "

And there's more - that's just part of it. Read their full review here - BBB Report on

Thank goodness I talked with the great folks at Action Gutter instead! They have a PERFECT A+ BBB rating - and have for years.

See the BBB rating report for Action Gutter.

Y'all be careful! Those low-price ads are just designed to get you to call so use care when choosing your gutter cleaning company in Atlanta and the surrounding areas.
