Gutters Bid

Every area has out of work roofers if your not comfortable getting up there then don’t . You could probably hire an experienced roofer for the day that is comfortable and has his own harness and safety gear for less than it would cost you to buy a pair of cougar paws and a harness . And still get the job done in one day
Just so you know nobody is REALLY comfortable up on two and three story roof . So don’t kick yourself for being nervous. I clean 3 story apartment buildings roofs very often including this week but every time I’m about to step off the lift and on to the roof my ass still puckers up a little

Touché


#23

Harness up and install D rings at the peak.
Be safe and look super pro. Plus add a charge in for the D rings and explain how anyone else going up ( roofers ) will benifit from them.


#24

Check with your local laws before you put any anchors on a roof . States like mine only allows licensed roofers to attach anything to a roof. We hook our harness to a 3ft anchor that gets dropped down vent tubes


#25

A few year back they were really cracking down on the satellite installers. Apparently there were causing a lot of roof leaks and Insurance companies were refusing to pay because the installers were not liscenced roofers


#26

Thx for the heads up.


#27

Snake oil man started that mess. Weights down a pvc pipe is a good way to die


#28

Ain’t nobody got time for that! Semi conquered my vertigo.


#29

Have to say I like the F9 better than Oxalic for this case. 10 minutes up and down. I think the oxalic would have been a bit more like 30 min. And I did touch up they 4th & 5th panel down.

Now throw that bucket away and get you a handheld stihl blower. Put the bull horn down two rungs and you satisfy OSHA and have a hand hold while stepping on and off the ladder


#31

That bucket carried my f9. Dully notes about the bull horns. I actually am getting down from the first floor. Been in that pic on the edge for about 10 minutes. Blower retrieved. Job completion underway thanx!


#32

Hydrochloric you would have been up and down in 15 seconds. Looks great though


#33

I’ll have to look into that. Still would have stumped me getting down the ladder. So the bull horn installs on the second rung from the top or third? Cause I wouldn’t have been up there so long had the top of ladder been like a few inches above the gutter. I thought about that as soon as I was attempting to get down that I should have dropped the horns some


#34

Lmao :joy:


#35

I tried your method for gutter cleaning with the blower the other day, tiny job, part of a combo package, but man that was a fast 30 bucks. Good stuff


#36

$30…will you come clean my gutters? Jk


#37

Lol, it was like 10 feet, part of house wash, patio, driveway, etc


#38

I’m just messing. Good work


#39

Landed the job. I will now be their vendor for gutters. Got my foot in the door so I will try and get their windows too. Maybe a wash who knows. Will update when I actually do the job in August.

So, I got the contract for gutter clean out on a commercial 2-story property, I did not want to be on the roof either, so I used an 18’ extension wand with a gutter hook and a 15 degree tip. I had to turn down my engine to keep it from blasting out of my hands. But I didnt have to climb any ladders and just walked along blasting out the eaves. It was super fast and I just gave a quick rinse where ever the contents landed after.
