    I read somewhere that about 3 quid a meter is what some charge, frankly I just pluck a figure out the air, but am usually a bit too cheap

    I try and judge how many hours it will take and then charge what I earn per hour!
    ?10, ?15, etc

    I puck one up today myself i reckon for a normal 3 bed semi depending on how dirty they are and if they gutters are full of dirt etc you would be looking at around £40.

    The one i puck up today was from a reccomendation so i knew straight away the job was mine so priced at £60 but he has got a forrest growing in them .

    I charge on how much time it will take me :)

    I cleaned a house i do for £7.00 and he wanted his gutters cleaning..... and i charged an extra £3.00 and it toke me about 5-7 minutes to do ! :)

    So just work it out on time that way at least your reasonable :)

    I try and stay over £15.00 per hour :)

    Minimum is £12.00 per hour :)
