    Repairs to guttering and downpipe

    Repairs to guttering and downpipe 31st Jul 12 at 1:36 PM
    I am a newbie homeowner and therefore have no idea how much repairs cost. Hope someone can help me out.

    The guttering at the back of my house (small three bed semi) has a few problems: It slopes downwards at the end where there isn't a downpipe, causing water to pour out at an alarming rate when it rains. It seems that one of the clips/brackets holding the guttering up needs replacing.

    Also, two brackets securing the downpipe to the house have gone thanks to corrosion and need replacing. I want all guttering cleared of leaves etc as well, front and back. Then there is a small issue with the water butt not filling up.

    I asked a local property maintenance firm for a quote and they came back with 50 for materials and 120 for labour. Am I right in thinking that this is excessive?
