    There really is no good place for this question so I am going to try and post it here. I am looking for some add on services and thought about holiday lighting and was also looking towards gutter cleaning. I really was looking to find if anyone did this and how it has worked out.

    As always, thanks for the help.

    We do some gutter cleaning and it does pretty good. Just watch out for the wasp/bee nests. Don't want to do a jig on the roof. For a standard pitched single story we charge $40-50. More if it is a steeper pitch and you have to do it from a ladder. 2 story houses are $50-75 depending on pitch and how much you have to do with moving ladders around. I have had a few higher, but typically try to stay away from anything with nasty roof pitches or anything a 32' ladder can't reach. Good luck.

    yes gutter cleaning can be very beneficail but also alot of people don't want to pay much for it. Most think 20-25 is to high but that all depends on where you live/work our housees average from 100k to 190k. so what the heck give it a try doesn't cost you much in equipment We use a trashcan lid, yardwaste bag, ladder,leather gloves, blower, and their hose.so if you get 4-5 five customers its paid for the ladder if you don't have one already.
