Get the best gutter cleaning service in Birmingham

What is it about Birmingham that makes it one of Alabama's most interesting cities? Is it the southern charm that it exudes? Could it be its many historic buildings or the statue of Vulcan which is hard to miss? Whatever the case, there is no denying that Birmingham is a fast developing metropolis in the south, and is one of the best places to live in. If you're a homeowner here then you would want nothing more than to maintain the beauty and value of your humble abode. This includes doing everything you can to make sure that it happens, including cleaning out the gutters which is something Lawn Love happens to be good at.

Gutters usually don't get the same amount of attention that the other parts of our home do, but they serve a very important purpose. Without gutters there would be nothing that will help regulate the flow of rainwater. This could lead to our homes suffering from water damage, which in turn could cost us thousands of dollars in repairs. Regularly cleaning your gutters will not only keep them in good shape, but it can also save you from having to spend your money on potential repair costs as well.

Lawn Love is one of the industry leaders when it comes to gutter cleaning. Our experts will thoroughly clean out your gutters and make sure most of the debris clogging it is removed. You can give us a phone call at 205-304-0070 or get a quick quote online for free.

World class customer support

Whether it's via chat, email, or over the phone, our team is always available to help.

Gutter Cleaning in Birmingham, AL


In the Deep South of the United States lies a city that endured decades of economic setbacks, labor unrest, severe air pollution, and many civil rights tragedies. Even though Birmingham is Alabama's youngest major city, it overcame many setbacks and emerged as the state's largest city. Birmingham boasts of many exciting tourist attractions that are unique to its rich history. Many festivals, family attractions, botanical gardens, parks, and museums round out the experience.


Birmingham lies in the Jones Valley, in the southern end of the Appalachian Mountains. The summers are long, hot, and humid. Winters are short and wet. Yaupon Holly and Plumleaf Azalea bushes, Beautyberry shrubs, Eastern Redbud trees, and Rain Lily flowers grow everywhere. Thriving grass types include Bermudagrass, Zoysiagrass, Tall Fescue, and Bahia Grass.


In 1815, early Jones Valley settlers were disappointed to discover that cotton would not grow there. With both inadequate transportation connectivity to other settlements and nothing to sell, commerce stagnated.


Miners eventually discovered that the area was rich in iron ore, coal, and limestone, which was all that was needed to make iron. Birmingham is the only place in the world where all three ingredients exist within a ten-mile radius. In 1871, railroads reached the settlement. Birmingham was chartered and became the county seat.


Before production began, a cholera epidemic and an ongoing lack of jobs forced many residents to flee the city. Even so, the mines were opened, two furnaces were built, the railroad opened, and one railroad company provided special freight rates.


Jobseekers flocked back to town. By 1880, more than half of the industrial workers were former black slaves and sharecroppers who found the living and working conditions in Birmingham to bring no improvement. This included the area's deeply entrenched system of segregation.


Production of pig iron increased ten-fold between 1880 and 1890, and the muddy, rough settlement became a civilized city overnight. Various unions rapidly formed in the 1890s. Known as the "Pittsburgh of the South," Birmingham became the region's leading industrial city. Who then cared that cotton would not grow there?


U.S. Steel purchased TCI in 1907. In 1915, the installment of a lock-and-dam system on the Tombigbee and Warrior Rivers gave manufacturers a cheap way to transport goods to Mobile. It also firmly positioned Birmingham as the transportation hub of the mid-South.


The 1929 stock market crash caused thousands of layoffs, and U.S. Steel closed its doors for eight years. Then the U.S. involvement in World War II caused a sudden need for massive amounts of steel for the nation's arsenal. This reanimation of the mills and other businesses in town brought Birmingham out of the Great Depression.


After the war ended, Birmingham established 140 new manufacturing industries to diversify and stabilize the economy. Hayes International Aircraft and a major medical complex were built. Once again, Birmingham was all set for a bright future when tragedy hit.


A civil rights struggle began in the city. The violence became so widely known over the years, Birmingham had trouble attracting investors for their new industries. Birmingham was nicknamed "Bombingham." The bombing of the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church brought about the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which put an end to segregation in public places. The Voting Rights Act of 1965 allowed blacks to participate in civic and government affairs, and 1979 saw the city's first black mayor.


Today, Birmingham has a modern skyline, and many small suburb cities surround it. With well over one million people, the metropolitan area is the largest commercial center in Alabama. It is also one of the largest banking centers in the nation.


One of at least nine colleges and universities, the University of Alabama at Birmingham is now one of the nation's finest medical and research centers. Birmingham is a center of bioscience and technology development. Some of the nation's top construction and engineering firms are located in Birmingham. Several power companies put their headquarters for their engineering and technical services divisions there. Along with all of this modernity are three operating steelmakers, which are U.S. Steel, McWane, and Nucor.


After producing iron for nearly 90 years, Sloss Furnaces became a city-operated museum and a National Historic Landmark. It is the only such facility in the world that is being preserved. On top of Red Mountain at the Vulcan Park and Museum, the mythical god of metalworking, Vulcan, stands tall and proud as the giant, cast-iron statue in the world. Other museums in Birmingham include the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum and the art museum.


Among the many festivals held in Birmingham, the Sidewalk Film Festival is a must-see. Besides apple pie and barbecue, Birmingham is home to "the Oscars of dining." The historical Irondale Café attracted many Hollywood stars through the years.


When it comes to urban green spaces, Birmingham is a national leader. In addition to botanical gardens and parks, biking and hiking trails through thousands of wooded acres can be reached within minutes of downtown.


Birmingham's Rickwood Field remains the nation's oldest baseball park. The park is kept close to its original, older look, right down to real grass and old-fashioned signs. Regions Field also has real grass. Legion Field and Lawson Field football stadiums are both now covered with Astroturf.


Other attractions include the Birmingham Zoo, the Mercedes Benz plant visitors center, the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama, McWane Science Center, Eternal Word Television Network, and the 1920's movie palace The Alabama Theatre. Take the tour through the Civil Rights District to visit the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church, Boutwell Auditorium, Kelly Ingram Park, and the site of the attack on the Freedom Riders.
