My name is Jacob Houvener (Jake), and I’m the owner and founder of Jake’s Gutter & Roof Cleaning; a local exterior house cleaning company. To protect us both, I am licensed, bonded, and insured.
I’m also a licensed real estate agent.
I can help you if you’re ready to buy or sell a home.
I’ve been working in the home improvement and house cleaning business since high school and I’ve been in business for myself since 2010.
I’m experienced, dependable, and thorough in my cleaning services.

Gutter Cleaning Service
Roof and Gutter cleaning is my main service. I offer my gutter cleaning service to buildings and homes up to two stories tall (sometimes three depending on the home).
Visit my gutter cleaning page for more info.
Roof Cleaning Service
I clean composition shingle roofs. Air blowing (for leaves/needles) and pressure washing (for moss) are the 2 different roof cleaning methods I offer.
Backpack air blowing is a simple cleaning method that will remove branches, leaves, and pine needles. Roof pressure washing will remove all debris, including moss, slime, and most discolorations.
After cleaning your roof, for an additional charge, I can apply a zinc powder moss killer treatment (same thing as Corry’s Moss-B-Ware) to help prevent future moss growth.
I’m an experienced and professional roof cleaner, and am also licensed, bonded, and insured.

Pressure Washing Service
I offer pressure washing services on surfaces like roofs, driveways, patios, and sidewalks. I treat your property like it was my own and I work hard to protect your surfaces while providing great results.

ROOF and/or GUTTER CLEANING: Gutter cleaning is performed by JGRC with a variety of tools and methods. Cleaning the gutters means clearing debris to allow water to flow down the downspouts. Gutter cleaning does not include cleaning any underground drainage systems or pipes. The customer assumes full responsibility for underground drainage systems.
Working on or around homes can result in paint chipping off of gutters, siding, decks, etc. The customer assumes full responsibility for any and all accidental paint chips.
Gutter corners may randomly start to leak, especially on older homes. JGRC does not seal leaky gutters. The customer assumes all responsibility for any and all gutter leaks that may be discovered after a roof or gutter cleaning.
JGRC works with care; however, all personal items left outside are liable to get dirty or broken, including plants. The customer assumes all responsibility for any personal items and plants outside. JGRC recommends that the customer places all items inside their home, or at least 50’ away from the house.
JGRC does not offer any type of landscape cleanup or any type of yard clean up. By contacting JGRC, you the customer are assuming full responsibility for any and all yard cleanup. JGRC will blow off hard surfaces such as decks and driveways, but will not perform any type of yard cleanup.
JGRC only guarantees that the roof and gutters are clean on the day of service. Tree debris can fall at any time, making the roof and gutters dirty again. JGRC does not come back out for free to clean any mess made after the cleaning. The customer shall be responsible for dirty gutters or roofs starting the first day after the service date.
PRESSURE WASHING: JGRC works with skill and care; however, damage may occur to the home or any surface during pressure washing. The customer shall hold JGRC harmless for any accidental damage. Some homes have inadequate weather stripping, which may allow for water to enter inside the home especially around windows, skylights, and doors. The customer shall hold JGRC harmless for any water that gets inside the home, including any resulting damage from the water.
