    First time ever a customer canceled a job booked in (3 bed semi with a ground floor extention on the back) because his window cleaner today agreed to clear the guttering for how much do you think?:rolleyes:

    I just don't get why some charge so little as most jobs I get gutters have not been cleared out for years.

    Example pics

    Gutters full of tile grit sludge, moss and even had roofers nails in the gutters so I take its never been cleared since the house was built.

    Not to mention corners'

    And blocked downspouts too.

    This what came out of approx 12 m of guttering today

    And no I did not charge £20 for my troubles either as would have been madness to do so for such a messy and risky jobo_O

    totally agree i generally charge £20-30 for a gutter clearance but that doesnt include cleaning the crud off them thats extra, i basically put the pro gutter tool in and scrape all the **** out and then use a rag on the sediment but i always take a look first as ive had one that i charged £30 for and took me two hours constantly clearing a little bit after little bit filling the bucket constantly, must have got about 5 buckets full!
    also when you get a gutter right above the conservatory and you got to try and scrape the crud along with the progutter tool and its spilling over the side and dropping onto the conservatory roof,great!!!
