I know this is a landscape forum, but I couldnt find anywhere else to start. Im an old LCO who sold his company a year ago and looking into another business venture. Im located in the St. Louis area and thinking of getting into the gutter business. We have a lot of hail and windstorms in this area and think it could be a lucrative business. Plus, new constructions seems to be on an up swing. Ive found 5" -6" gutter machines, new and used ranging anywhere from $3000-$12,000.00. I have a truck and enclosed trailer, but need a machine, material, stands, tools, etc..... What would my start up cost be? Is there a high profit margin? Any idea of material cost per foot and what a ballpark charge per foot is in my area or yours? Any and all help/suggestions would be appreciated.
