Do people make a living cleaning gutters or is it fixing and installing them were the money is?

I would think fixing and installing them. you get paid for the job, and if you deal with the trash from the job, that's a lot of alluminum you can cash in on as well. Usually an extra hundred or so at least.

I would think it would be more of an add on service. much like upholstery work is for carpet cleaners

my brother at is a window cleaner, but he cleans and fixes gutters too.

I think there is more money involved in gutter installation. Few less bucks in Fixing them. And the least will be for gutter cleaning. However, the best answer is to do all of them. You never know which one do you get. Also, there is a lot of side-money involved in dealing with fixing parts and trash business.

Gutter cleaning is a profitable service without much overhead, but it's also seasonal. It works great as an add on service but one would need a huge customer list to make it on gutter cleaning alone.

unless you did gutter cleaning, with the addition of installing gutter guards.. alot of companies do just the guards.

We would say both, if you are a one stop shop the profit margin can be larger!

It is a good Business, but I agree with an earlier poster that you need a lot of clients to make it full time. I need 10 Customers a week to make good money, It can be quite hard to find 10 new customers a week with limited knowledge of marketing. But I'm learning a few tricks. A great way to find customers is to make a video introducing yourself and your service to the customer, then link this video to your website. Below are my Gutter Cleaning Videos, Good luck:
