How much can I make?- gutters

I'm looking into starting a window and gutter cleaning business in my area and I was wondering that I should expect to make in a year if I was just cleaning gutters?

A side question would be which is more common? To blow out the Gutters or to actually clean them out and bag the debrie? Do people care? Whats the average amount per house and how long does it take you?

Thanks!

Tim

Two to three hundred thousand your first year if you put flyers on everyone's door (nothing fancy, just print them on your computer in black and white). After the first year things REALLY start taking off. I just ordered a Ford GT (the real one, not the Mustang) from my gutter and window revenue alone.

If you came on my property I would expect you to bag everything but I hear some guys do not.

I was just playing. I hate pricing questions. One's first year in business its closer to $2000 than it is $200,000

Im in the process of buying and modifying something similar to this to bump up efficiency. Might not work for all jobs but if you have large complexes this is a time saver.
