    I'm finding the gutters are rarely effective looking, but not sure if that's more age or what. The ones where the tile nearly clears them surely that's a bad job. But I wouldn't like the job of putting them up in the first place, putting up a shelf can be an ordeal.

    TBH I try not to think to much, clear, photo if needed, try and get them as annual repeat biz
