Hello again. I had one quote for clearing our gutters of leaves & weeds which was 200 - I think that's a lot so I am just going to try one more time to see if anyone else can recommend someone to do this.

So, if you have had your guttering cleared and were pleased and it cost less than 200, please can you pass on your recommendation.

Many thanks.

Hi,

I'm also looking for someone to come and do some clearing and probably replacement of guttering, so any recommendations would be appreciated.

:D

I just had a quote for 600 to clear and repair my guttering! Why is it so expensive?

Michael Bee of Justgutters (http://www.justgutters.co.uk/) did a good job for me (near Crown Point) a couple of weeks ago. He is based in Sevenoaks, but used to live round here and was happy to travel. Turned up exactly when he said, and the price was very reasonable.

Thanks to Dazza's recommendation I contacted Big Al and was delighted with his work. Our gutter and downpipe were blocked solid. He turned up on time on both occasions and was easy to contact by telephone. He charged less than half the price wanted by other roofers - very impressed!

Can I ask roughly how much it cost?

I've been in touch with Michael at Just Gutters and he isn't sure if he can come up to the Crystal Palace area so I am looking for another option - I'd like to try Al but it would be good to know the cost ball park he is in.

Thank you.

As an elected councillor I am wary of making recommendations but as Alan (Big Al) doesn't live in my ward and is already well known on VN, I do want to add that I was delighted with the way he sorted my guttering problems. This week's storms proved how successful he was. He was prompt, friendly, helpful Give him a try. He also introduced me to Terry, a painter and decorator and Tony, a scaffolder, all equally good. Also, thanks to VN for such a useful service.

I've recently used Alan Wells to install some new guttering. He has done work also for my neighbours - very professional job and a good price (there's no way I'd get up on the roof for that!). He's based in Lee (SE12) but travels 0208 851 4252 or 07930574463.

Hi all, anyone have up to date recommendations for gutter clearing? The latest spell of heavy rain has shown that ours is long over due a clean out! Thanks.

As the last post on this topic was four years ago, are there any new recommendations for someone reliable and not too pricey?  I'm hoping the problem is just a bird's nest but it may need a repair.

Just as an update I went with Big Al (after leaving it for ages) and would definitely use him again.
