I got an e-mail the other day from a company out of Charlotte, NC.

Check this out guys, it's very impressive.

I'm definately considering buying one to make gutter cleaning easier.

The only way to clean gutters is with your eye's and your hands.

That's what I thought too, until I saw their video. It is incredible.

It will even suck out little one foot tall trees growing in the gutters!

I haven't heard back from them about the price.

Looks like the Bomb! We don't believe that the only way to clean gutters are by hand and have always thought that a vacuum system would work. Post a price when you get one. Thanks.

1800 sounds reasonable if it really works. Maybe we get a money back 30 days?? We clean more than 60, 2x per year gutter contracts currently and want to expand into doing a lot more.

That could pay for itself in a freaking WEEK
WE have super gutters down here, the one between house and pool cage, they are time consuming to clean.
WE charge 150 dollars for most Gutter Cleaning Tampa FL, more if filled with pine neeedles.
I LIKE the telescoping attachment, some big azzed 2 story roofs in parts of Tampa.
300 dollar jobs !
Right now, I give some of that work to my employees

In gutter cleaning video number 2, one can see the roof shingles being sucked!
This is IMHO because the guy is too chicken chit to use a ladder!
I would use a ladder, get on the roof of that little POS house, and be done in 1/2 the time.
We must research if simply a really powerful shop vac would do the job the same ?

I am sold, I want one!

Can see us picking up extra money EVERY day just about!

A the big 2 story gutters in south tampa,, man, we turn calls for gutter cleaning down all the time.
PLUS, it bags the debris !!

What a great add on service gutter cleaning is.
Now, If I could JUST get the idiots to stop cleaning gutter free with roof cleaning ?
They use pressure washers, blow stuff all over, don't bag it!

Gutter cleaning pays $35.00 to $125.00 The season only last one month. Nov. 1 thru Nov 30th. The trick is to sell contractor gutter screens. It brings the job up to about $450.. It also gets you up on the roof to look around and get work for the spring. I invest $100.00 in signs and put them up around town. It pays the bills for the month.

It's a little longer down here Art.
We don't usually solicit it, but doing roofs, it kind of finds us.
I have called gutter Installers, out of the blue, and some of them send work our way.
Besides, I think going after gutters can lead to cleaning roofs ?
After all, if they neglect Gutters, what else have they neglected ?

Down here, they offer a sponge that goes in the gutter, rain goes through it, but leaves in theory cant get in.
I had a friend who sold them, and went with him on a sales call once.
The customer was a really big Italian guy from Cleveland originally.
My buddy gave him the sales pitch for the gutter sponges.
The Big Italian guy said "Whats a matter you, your sponge a goona fill uppa with water, and gonna breaka my guttas, then I breaka you face"

A valid concern maybe Art, that sponge must get heavy, maybe not ?

Hi Chris
 The gutter sponge or filters are about $8.00 a foot to Install. I had a guy called me last month to have the filters cleaned out. He had a tree growing out of one and pollen in all the other filters. The only way to clean the filtered gutter system is to take them out and power wash them. If a homowner needs screens. The best way is Screwed in Alum. Screens at $2.00 a foot plus Repairs and cleaning. This is my opinion on gutter guards and gutter Cleaning. None work 100%. For more Info. you can go to one of my webe Sites at www.cleanandscreen.com
                                                          Thanks Art

I fixed your signature Art to reflect roof cleaning in suffolk county.
Your web link was not active, so I activated it.
The gutter screens here in Tampa are a nightmare, pine needles get stuck in them, making cleaning dreadful.

I like these gutter guards from Home Depot.

They are dirt cheap, easy to install, and they don't clog.

The wind blows off all the leaves when get collected on top eventually.

I have them installed on my house.

Check out the alum Screens http://www.egutter.com/s.nl/sc.5/category.2037/.f 
As long as the gutter has pitch.  They work great. I have found in the past vinyl screen warp. But to each his own!
