    We have over 1,500 accounts just for gutter cleaning and would like to know others in the country doing mainly gutter cleaning. Marketing ideas, pricing, etc.

    I am thinking of bidding on a job power washing and cleaning the gutters on my local township hall. I'll have to rent a lift as the building is 30' tall.

    Do you have a special rider on your insurance? Also do you price gutters by the foot or by the job?

    wow 1500 accounts. How do you market your service currently? How many annual visits? What is your average job price?

    We turn away jobs like this. No "special rider" just a lot of liability ins. and we price according to time required to complete job.

    Gutter cleaning is not a huge part of my business, but I do enough of it to keep me interested. How do you guys charge? I charge by the linear foot, ranging from .50-1.00 per foot, based on whether I can walk the roof, how high it is, whether I can use a stepladder or have to use an extension ladder. My minimum charge is $45, but I'll often waive that if I'm doing other work for them.

    I can almost always make over $60/hour, sometimes over $100. I can see where building up a large client base could be highly profitable.

    Any other thoughts?
