gutterdog, not sure if you've mentioned in you walk the roofs or not. If so, how do you do the ones you can't walk. or what if you thought you could but show up and its unwalkable. do you change your price?

Mike told me how he does this, but I cannot believe it. I would have to see it to believe. He'll have to tell you himself. He told me not to say.

Waiting for Mike to chime in and tell us himself, maybe show a video. The problem with Mike is if he actually tells you, good luck figuring out what he says. The guy talks in riddles.

You got that right, Mike. I've priced some jobs where I was over twice the price as some hack cleaning gutters for $40 on a bid the other day!

$40!!!!! LOL!! Guess he needed a 12 pk!! lol!! Gutter cleaning has gotten REAL bad.

 


I heard that a company around here will clean them for less than that... Like $29!

Oh well. So much for cleaning gutters!

There are some good suggestions on here. By the sounds of it, Australian gutter cleaners have it a lot easier than you boys in the States at the moment. In the city we are charging a lot more than what you are saying. A gentlemen never tells his secrets so I will not brag, but merely suggest that you come down under.

 In Mikes first post he said.."In this thread you will learn how to clean gutters and downspout very quickly. A better cleaning than your competition can give. In less time too".

 I guess he was speaking in riddles again.

yup! and some common sense, ladder. I started out with just one ladder and the same? And really just 15 min. if roof can be walked. And no really clogged downspouts.

Mike I'm assuming these fast jobs don't include houses with gutter screens or gutter "guards". Is this correct?
Many, prob. around 40% of the homes I work on have some type of debris screening making gutter cleaning slow.
