If gutter vacing typically a front and back terrace takes around 25 mins - times vary depending on how bad they are and donít forget they are 1 off ďbespokeĒ work so allow travel into your price

Then think of what you should/want/need  be earning p/h and thatís your price guide

Our gutter clearing is only available to regular window cleaning customers and only done when we clean the windows. Doing one off gutter clears means youíve got to go out to quote or we found ourselves coming across jobs we couldnít do when we arrived.  Basically, if the ladder needs to come out weíre not really interested.

The point is that it can be more trouble than itís worth. It didnít help that I got the pricing wrong to start. Now Iíve got a minimum price per side and a minimum total job price. Otherwise I price by the  metre.

8W - you donít seem to like going out very much at all - regular windows, blocks of flats, gutter, each to their own I guess, I feel your missing out on a lot of work though.

My focus is entirely on regular window cleaning customers. I'm not interested in irregular jobs. I'll do them for regular customers or I'll do 1/2 day one off full house cleans.

I want to know that every van is full with work every day. Day in, day out without having to find work to fill them.

Makes sense and if you have staff it is the best way, I get bored too easy though so like to mix things up lol.

Hi Nick

I'd be interested if you could send it to me as well, always seem to have a bit of guesswork involved when I quote!

Thanks

No, because when I take on someone new, thereís a period where his round isnít yet full so itís an extra income source during that period, but the main reason is that I was getting lots of enquiries with the fascia jobs and was just passing them on to a friend. As he got busier, he was struggling to  them in a timely fashion and we were waiting to do the fascias.

i ll only do them for regulers if they ask and it would be next time i clean there windows, i also price much higgher than windows.

Doing gutters and fsg isnt enjoyable and much harder on the body so has to be a good rate otherwise i prefer bashing out windows.

Just remember that there is no such thing as ladder free domestic gutter cleaning, if the roof tiles stick out too far for you to get the nozzle into the gutter or you knock an end cap off you will need to get the ladders out to fix it.
Unless its comercial work then I would stick to windows, less faff.
