    This enquiry just came through my website. Before I go out to give a quote I usualy look on google maps to get a rough idea what the job is going to be like. How on earth would you go about clearing blocked guttering and downspouts at the back of this 2 storey house? :rolleyes:

    Do not ppl think how awkward it would be with that design extetion to do any maintenace on guttering then they go sticking a bloody conservatory in the way too :D

    CNS It’s a newish house (6 year old build) which I’m familiar with after doing other jobs in that area. The gutter gap is also very narrow and being black guttering the joints are susceptible to coming apart too and start leaking due to gutter creep as they are generally badly fitted. So on that one will be stuffed if anyone cocks it up as would need to hire a boom lift (on driveway) or elaborate scaffolding to put right.

    Got a funny feeling they will be quite shocked whoever gives them a quote. :D

    Anyone up for a challenge? :rolleyes:

    I will still go out and inspect the job and then give a quote as I'm always up for a challenge. It separates the men from the boy’s dont you know. :D

    However after saying that I don't think they will like my price very much somehow? :rolleyes:

    Maybe you could use a guttervac but might struggle getting it in the gap. Also any sods up there especially in the corners will be a bugger to clear properly.
