    ....£600 is it?

    Hmmm....now let me think :rolleyes:

    To check and clear blocked guttering and downspouts
    front & left side aspect 40 m (2 storey)
    rear left aspect 10 m (3 storey)
    rear right aspect 15 m (3 storey)
    rear right side aspect 15 (2.5 storey)

    Total of 80 m of guttering ramed solid plus 7 downspouts to unblock

    How much would you charge?

    There is no way I would want to do the back of that property without using a ladder vertical life line & harness with the ladders securely anchored to the walls.

    Jokes aside smurf, I think £600 is actually bang on.

    80 metres of gutter at £5 per metre (about what I charge) = £400
    + the fact that some is 3 storey
    + all the downpipes that need unblocking,
    + the 'canyoujusts'.

    Sounds like a good job to get.

    £5 a metre to clear gutters? Solicitors are only on £200 an hour :eek: If you can get that sort of money, then fair play lads, but come on, that's taking the p!ss a bit.

    I'm not particular interested in that job to be honest so I'm thinking of putting in a silly high price. However knowing me I will still win that pain in the **** job anyhow.
