Last winter I put in an order to have my eavestrough cleaned after the leaves fell. I eventually found an invoice in my mailbox, but there was no bag of debris to show that they cleaned te eavestrough. When I called to ask for some clarification, they explained they didn't leave the debris behind at every job. Hoping for the best, I paid the bill.
Not surprisingly, that winter, water wouldn't drain down my downspout. Instead, I got icedams in my eaves and huge icicles.
As I investigated further, I found a huge clot of frozen debris blocking my downspout. I guess the reason there was no debris in a bag for me at the end of the job was because they forced it down my downspout where some of it jammed and ultimately froze.
Nice job. Can anyone recommend a company that will actually do this simple job correctly?
