Gutter replacement quote needed


Recommended Posts

Need a quotation for the replacement of the guttering on an offshot.

 

Single run - could be done from 2 ladders (I think)

 

Current guttering is wooden, but I would like to replace with plastic perhaps of a larger diameter as this one overflows if there is heavy rainfall - but I would take advice on that.

 

thanks

The overflow is due to a restricted outlet,the capacity of the gutter is les significant.A new plastic length should help,£9 for 4 metres so expect to pay labour costs for two men ,half a day.I bet you will get it done for £100 max,especially if you dispose of old timber.

Looks like you have the job then.

Oh, you'll have to remove the old gutter, provide a solid support for the new facia, fit the supporting timber/facia or full replacement facia, with brackets and then of course the new guttering.

Then we pay insurance, fuel & time to pick up the materials, tax on the invioced total and wages for a second man.

Stick to whatever it is you do for a living cause you know jack **** about the building trade, but of course we've had this conversation before.

Rob, I know you contacted me about this job a few weeks ago but i'm not free until April/May time (and I think i've worked for you before so you know i'm an honest and trust worthy tradesman).

Mally350z is a decent and trustworthy guy but I doubt it will be £100. If it is, run a mile!!!

Single storey or 2 storey off shot? Materials more likely to £50 - £60 by the time you have fascia, brackets, gutter, end caps , gutter outlets. Fuel and time picking materials up alsp time and fuel coming to look at the job and preparing quote. If you want a sensible quote please let us know. Another person has mentioned plastic that looks like wood it will probably be twinplas gutter that is min £30 for 3m and clips are more money. We have just taken some down at hands worth that was 5 years old it was south facing and the sun had deformed it. Not a fan if you something a bit better looking just go for an ogee profile plastic gutter.
