Methinks your downspout may also be blocked a wee bit too. :Image16:

12m gutter run cleared & unblocking 1 downspout = £110

Health and safety.

 

Wet ladders, wet hands.

 

Or did you use an umbrella over your vac.

I was joking, but wouldn't the ladders get slippery with the wet/damp conditions.

 

Hate getting wet haha :Image3:

Jobs like that with guttering full of water to be honest are a doddle to clear....

 

Tip: do not be directly under the downspout on your ladder when you take the joints apart. I was stupid enough to do that only once :Image13:

Anyhow Tuffers what would you have charged out of a matter of interest?

 

I will break down my costs to show for that kind of job.

 

Min charge £35 per semi x 2 £70 (front only)

Unblocking downspout x 1 £35

Call out & Camera survey x 1 £10

 

Total Cost £115 (shared between two owners of the semi's at £57.50 each)

Not quite the method I would use to be honest as most downspout swan necks (bends) I have cleared out I usually find a large lump of broken tile or broken off mortar fillet wedged in it not to mention all the **** on top of it too.

well my van has a fitted jet wash, hot box and 30m off hose , all I do for down pipes is clear the swan neck by hand, chuck the bomb on the hose, feed it doon the opened down pipe to clear all the crud that inevitably collects at the bottom off it, takes 5 minutes and also the drain gets a wee clear and aw :)

Just an update as I could not do that job there & then as the customer had to speak to next door first. Well they agreed but knocked me down to £50 each but was a good job I already factored that in

 

Most do like a bargain dont you know :Image13:
