You must let us know of anything which may present a hazard or danger to anyone carrying out work at your property. You must also make sure that we have clear access to any relevant gutters and provide us with a supply of mains electricity and water.
We will not be responsible for our failure to meet any of our obligations under this agreement because of circumstances beyond our control.
Appointments and Access
At Sudell Gutter Cleaning, each task our technicians undertake can vary in time to complete due to the unique nature of each job. This means we can’t set precise appointment times, but we promise to give you a heads-up within an hour of our anticipated arrival.
Please note, our work is dependent on the weather. In case of conditions like snow, ice, heavy winds, or rain, we might have to pick a new date that works for both of us.
If you’re renting, you’ll need your landlord’s green light. And if your place is listed, you might need to check on planning permissions. It’s up to you to get these permissions sorted out.
We only need to access the outside of your property, so if you’re not going to be around, just make sure the gates are open for us, and that you are contactable. This helps us get straight to work and manage our time effectively, ensuring we deliver our best service to you.
If you’ve scheduled one of our complimentary inspection services, we’ll get in touch with you after we’re done to share the findings. Should we spot any areas that could use cleaning or repair, we’ll also send over a no-cost, no-pressure quote. Plus, if you’re ready to have the work done on the same day and our schedule allows, we’ll present you with an exclusive one-time deal. Rest assured, we won’t start any work without your go-ahead first.
All prices on our website are estimations only are are subject to an inspection. To get a accurate price for your project, please contact your local Sudell Gutter Cleaning service technician.
Sudell Gutter Services provides complimentary, no-commitment quotes. Should you decide to proceed with the work right away, just let our Sudell team member know. By choosing immediate service, please be aware that this decision waives your right to cancel and ends any cooling-off period.
When we clean your gutters, we take the waste disposal seriously. We charge a nominal fee of £10 for each bag of waste we remove and dispose of responsibly. However, if you’d prefer to handle the waste disposal on your own, we’ll happily waive this fee.
Typically, gutters that are cleaned annually accumulate about one bag of waste, though this can vary with the size of your property. During the quotation process, we’ll discuss your preferences regarding waste disposal.
Should the cleaning generate more than two bags of waste and you choose for us to handle the disposal, we’ll place the waste in a designated spot of your choosing. Then, we’ll coordinate with a waste disposal company to have it picked up within 5 working days, ensuring a tidy and hassle-free experience for you.
When it comes to UPVC waste from gutter replacements, we’ve got it covered in your service cost. Plus, we’ll coordinate the collection of this waste within 5 working days, ensuring a clean and hassle-free experience for you.

You can ask us to start work before your cooling off period ends, but if you cancel once we’ve started, we’ll charge you for any work we’ve already done. If you want to cancel, just contact us.

In our commitment to providing outstanding service to all our clients, we understand the importance of flexibility and the unforeseen circumstances that may lead to needing to cancel or reschedule an appointment. However, due to the significant impact that late cancellations can have on our business, including lost opportunities, time, availability, administrative costs, advertising expenses, and in certain situations, additional costs related to fuel, mileage, and staffing, we find ourselves in the position of needing to implement a structured cancellation policy.
We kindly request that if you need to cancel or reschedule an appointment, service, or a complimentary inspection, you provide us with a minimum of 2 days’ notice. This allows us the opportunity to allocate our resources efficiently and potentially offer the slot to another client.
In instances where the required 2 days’ notice is not provided, it is with regret that we must impose a nominal cancellation fee of £25. This fee is in place to partially offset the costs incurred and to help maintain the quality and availability of our services to all clients.
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter and are more than willing to discuss any individual circumstances that might prevent you from adhering to this policy. Our aim is to work with you to ensure a seamless and positive experience with our company.
Thank you for your understanding and for valuing the service we provide.
