What would one consider a fair price for gutter cleaning?
For a company?
For a guy just doing it on the side for extra money?
Do you charge by the foot, whole house, etc.?
I’m in the Midwest (St. Louis) where I know things are more reasonably priced than in some other parts of the county.
Thanks!

    Most costs for guttering cleaning are determined in one or two ways: either by the hour or by the job. If a handyman is charging by the hour, that first hour is going to be more expensive than the hours after. For example, a handyman might charge $75 for the first hour and $55 for every hour after that. They do this to make short trips cost effective for their business.

    *A little hint. If you have anything else that needs fixing, inspected, or maintained, bundle these tasks into one trip. While you already have a handyman out to help, you might as well take advantage and only pay once for that more expensive hour.

    The other way that pros charge for cleaning gutters is by the job. They have been in the business long enough to know what to charge for each house. If you live in a cookie cutter type neighborhood where the houses are pretty similar, get together with the neighbors and see if you can’t get one professional to take care of everyone’s gutters on the same day. You can likely negotiate a better price. Just an idea.

    An average starting price here in California is about $120. Double that for a 2 story home. The price rises even a little higher if the home is all “hips” meaning continuous gutters all the way around.
