Gutters are often ignored probably because they’re not like a door or window that you can style and see all the time. The gutter is just up there along the eaves of your roof, quietly collecting rainwater to keep your foundation safe.
Not until it causes problems do we give it attention, and only after it has caused considerable damage.
To prevent this, regular gutter cleaning is needed. Which is why we’ve reviewed and picked what we think are companies that offer only the best gutter cleaning services in Dublin.
You will find them below, how much it costs to hire one, and a few helpful tips to get your gutter cleaned without hitches.

The Best Gutter Cleaning Services in Dublin
Now that you know what to expect in terms of costs, here are the best options available and what we think of them.
1. Embassy Guttering
|SERVICES||gutter cleaning and repair|
|ADDRESS||Unit 10, Abbey Business Park, Grange Dr, Baldoyle Industrial Estate, Dublin 13, Ireland|
|CONTACT DETAILS||01 8326266|
|OPERATING HOURS||Mon – Fri, 9:00am – 5:30pm|
One of the oldest fully-insured companies doing gutter maintenance in Dublin, Embassy Guttering and Maintenance Services has been operating for 35 years now. The company is pretty well-established, which is one of the primary reasons it made this list.
Embassy Guttering has cleaned literally thousands of gutters across Dublin and surrounding counties. They take on any size of gutter-cleaning job, big or small, for both residential and commercial sectors.
But they don’t just clean gutters, they can repair them too.
Old gutters can easily be knocked down by strong winds or heavy rains. So, if your gutter has been damaged, they can fix it for you.
They also sell gutters by the way, which we find pretty convenient. You get to deal with only one company to clean, repair or replace your gutter when necessary.
They supply 3 different gutter types: PVC, cast aluminium, seamless aluminium gutter, the last of which is their bestseller.
Add this to the fascia and soffit repair service they offer, and they’re pretty much a one-stop shop for your roofing needs.
We just wish they were open on weekends or Saturdays, at least. That’s when most people get the time off work to do their house to-do’s.
You’ll find what their previous customers are saying about Embassy Guttering and Maintenance Services below:
“I had leaking gutters replaced with seamless aluminium guttering. They also cleared two blocked downpipes. I found them to be very professional to deal with from the office to the fitters and would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.” – Paula Flanagan, Google reviews
“Fantastic to deal with, always on time and never let us down . Great value service with top class professional results.
Highly recommended” – Sean Cummins, Google reviews
2. Weathertight Roofing
|SERVICES||gutter renewal, gutter cleaning, gutter repairs|
|ADDRESS||15A Tolka Estate, Glasnevin, Dublin, D11 KD83, Ireland|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+353 85 750 1152|
Weathertight Roofing cleans and power-washes gutters regardless of what type of roof you have—flat roof, slate roof, fibreglass roof. They pride themselves on getting the job done all in one day, which is one of the best things about them.
It’s also good to know they are fully insured. We all know cleaning gutters requires climbing scaffolding, which is risky, so knowing that part is covered is reassuring.
What’s more, Weathertight Roofing offers a full suite of roofing services over North and South Dublin. This means you can also have them do your roof maintenance or repairs while they see to your gutters.
They’ve been doing this for over 15 years, so we’d say they are pretty experienced. They are a trusted member of the National Guild of Master Craftsmen too, which confirms their skills in the field.
If you’re interested in gutter cleaning or roof replacement, you can ask them for a free quote, by the way. They’re also open 7 days a week, which we always appreciate for its convenience.
Read some of the testimonials of Weathertight Roofing’s previous customers:
“Got my gutters re done. I was very happy with the service and price. Would definitely recommend using them” – Hannah Redmond, Google reviews
“Excellent Service from Niall and his team , they got the job done fast and at a price better than anywhere else! Highly recommended for all of your roofing needs!” – Complex Wear, Google reviews
3. Base Window Cleaners
|SERVICES||window cleaning, gutter cleaning|
|ADDRESS||Hireco Park, Long Mile Road, Dublin D12 EPY6|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+353 1 598 4227|
|OPERATING HOURS||Mon – Sat, 8:00am – 5:30pm|
It seems Base Window Cleaners are as concerned about safety and skill certification as we are. We were happy to find that they have valid certifications in Safe Pass, Manual Handling and Mobile Elevated Work Platforms (MEWP) courses.
We also found that they have two types of insurance: Public Liability Insurance and Product Liability Insurance covering up to €6,500,000. That can help a client breathe more easily when they’re on the job.
It’s also worth noting that Base Window Cleaners uses an industrial gutter vacuum that can reach a height of 46 feet.
This means they don’t really need to climb risky scaffolding to do the job. They can reach your roof gutter from the ground!
Safety precautions aside, Base Window Cleaners can take care, not just of your gutters, but your windows too.
They also offer fascia and soffit repair for residential homes and commercial multi-storey buildings. These multiple services allow you to deal with only one contractor, which we think is pretty convenient.
Finally, if you want to schedule a cleaning, appointment times are from 8:00am to 5:30pm, Monday to Saturday. We wish they were also open on Sundays, though, given that they provide services to businesses which are often open all throughout the week.
Base Window Cleaners has a lot of good reviews from previous clients, as what you can see below:
“Highly recommended! I hired this company to clean my guttering and windows based on its reviews and I wasn’t disappointed. Excellent company, excellent work, everything exactly as outlined in all the other positive reviews. Will hire them again.” – Jacinta Carroll, Base Window Cleaners reviews
“Delighted with the (well overdue) job of cleared gutters and clean windows. Paul and the team were polite, professional, efficient and friendly. Very reasonable. Highly recommended. Thanks lads.” – Anne-Maria Whelan, Facebook reviews
4. The Cleaning Company
|SERVICES||gutter, window, roof, conservatory, fascia and soffit cleaning|
|ADDRESS||Meadowfield, Corbally, Saggart, Co. Dublin|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+353 (0)85 844 8351|
It’s such a drag to have to remember when the last gutter-cleaning was done and when it should happen again. And that doesn’t include the task of calling the company to schedule a cleaning.
Well, it seems The Cleaning Company has a solution for that.
They have an annual maintenance program so they can be your regular cleaners. They’ll take care of everything—including your windows, roof, fascia and soffit.
Of course, you can also have it as a one-off service. Either way, they’ll start with a free camera inspection of your gutter line.
This inspection is done to check how much dirt is there or if your gutter is damaged in any way before sending you a report of their findings.
They will repeat the same inspection process after the cleanup so you’ll be able to see the difference. Since we can’t actually see the gutter, we think the report is a great way to know what was actually done up there.
The Cleaning Company also offers a bevy of other services. These include window cleaning, power washing, bio-mist disinfecting, soft washing moss removal, fascia and soffit, roof and render/gable end cleaning.
You can get a discount for multiple service orders too. As such, this may be a good time to start asking your neighbours if they want to have their gutters cleaned as well.
TCC takes on both residential and commercial clients, by the way. They offer extra services to the latter like facade and cladding cleaning.
To give you an idea of how well-established they are in the space, some of their commercial clients include Burger King, Tesco and Subway. On the whole, they’re among the more well-known options for gutter and facade cleaning here.
We’re not surprised by the good reviews we’ve received from The Cleaning Company’s customers:
“We have used Luke and his team a number of times and I could not recommend them enough. All the team are extremely professional and the level of customer service is second to none. The whole processor was seamless and Luke is an excellent communicator.. Great job and I look forward to continuing our work with the cleaning company.” – Orla Fenelon, The Cleaning Company reviews
“I had put off getting gutters done, so was over the moon to find these guys. Really professional, no messing great job. very very pleased.” – Anne Twomey, The Cleaning Company reviews
5. Tower Enterprises
|SERVICES||gutter and window cleaning|
|ADDRESS||48 Old Bawn Park, Tallaght, Dublin 24, D24 ADCO, Ireland|
|CONTACT DETAILS||+353 1 451 2393|
|OPERATING HOURS||Mon – Sun, 8:00am – 11:00pm|
It’s not easy to find a company that will look after your gutter and windows on a regular basis. But we think Tower Enterprises can because they offer these services nonstop—they’re actually open 7 days a week.
Doesn’t matter if you have a shack or a mansion either. They accept both residential and commercial jobs on all scales.
And yes, they’re fully-insured too, which is good. It’s one of the things we look for in high-risk fields like cleaning gutters—even more so if the company takes on commercial jobs.
You see, commercial jobs almost always mean higher buildings. Higher buildings mean greater risks.
We also checked their website and were pleased to find they have an online shop that sells cleaning equipment such as water-fed pole systems, window cleaning resins, T-bar handles, scrim clothes, detergent, gloves and other cleaning supplies.
They have a variety of special offers too and can even deliver nationwide.
However, we think their website could use a little updating. A gallery of their commercial clients would be helpful in leaving the impression that they’re not limited to residential projects.
That aside, we think Tower Enterprises still offers one of the best gutter cleaning services in Dublin. The fact that they’ve been operating since 1988 probably says something about how much experience they have in this industry.
Below are reviews showing what Tower Enterprises’ customers are saying about their service:
“Couldn’t recommend this company enough. They came out at a time that suited me and did a very professional job. Thanks again Pat; I’ll be recommending to friends and family” – Aodh Mac Gráinne, Google reviews
“Service was excellent. Called Pat on the mobile and got a quick appointment which he made good on. Gutters cleaned and some extra bits too, and then most importantly the price from the quote was the price I paid. Very friendly. All the mess was taken away too. Cheers Pat.” – Ronan Gaughan, Google reviews

Gutter Materials and Styles: Which one should I choose?
If your basement is damp all the time or the foundation of your house is damaged, it could be the gutter that’s causing it.
A repair or replacement might fix it. But before you hunt for a gutter contractor, it’s best to arm yourself with the information below so you can make the right choice:
Seamed versus Seamless Gutters
Seamed (also called ordinary or sectional) gutters are gutters sold in sections and connected together to make one gutter system. This type of gutter is easy to install and also inexpensive.
The problem is, it doesn’t last very long and will eventually leak at the seams.
Seamless gutters, on the other hand, don’t have seams and are therefore leakless. They last a lot longer than seamed gutters and when installed with gutter guards, are almost maintenance-free.
This type of gutter is expensive, though, and needs to be installed by professionals.
Copper is extremely durable. It doesn’t rust and also ages beautifully, developing a blue-green hue over time.
However, because it’s a premium material, objects made with it are also quite pricey.
Steel has different varieties. Two of the most popular ones used in gutter systems are galvanised and stainless.
Gutters made of stainless steel are virtually indestructible. The material doesn’t rust and its shine doesn’t fade.
But like copper, stainless steel is also quite expensive.
Galvanised steel is a lot more economical than stainless steel. It is stronger too compared to aluminium.
However, it will rust over time. You can make it last a bit longer, though, with proper maintenance.
One of the most popular materials for gutters is aluminium. It’s lightweight and less expensive than copper or steel, but fully weatherproof no matter how cold it gets.
It also doesn’t rust and you can easily paint it to match the color-theme of your home.
The only problem is that it dents easily and can get misshapen by fallen branches, when you’re not careful with your ladder, etc.
Vinyl is another favourite of homeowners primarily because for a low price, you get an easy-to-install, rust-proof material. The drawback is that it gets brittle and will crack over time, especially when it gets cold.
