Reasonable price to install 30ft gutter?


Hi,

I have someone coming to look at my place to install a gutter that fell.

It seems that one guy wants 150 for this job but it seems too high. What you guys think?

It doesn't seem too high to me. Figure 30 minute driving each way and one hour to set up the ladder and install the gutter. It sounds reasonable to me.

if you believe it too much, ever consider doing it yourself?

Is that really how much he wants or does it just seem that way?

I'll do it for $149.50 (plus expenses).

How high is the eave that it was attached to?

I'm going to go along with what others have said...the bid seems reasonable to me, provided there isn't a lot of extra work that will need to be done to get the gutter attached again.
