    That's just typical as my first day back and it's raining. Oh well the good news is I suppose the gutters will not be frozen inside :confused:

    Rainig hard in bir ingham too, good thing i havnt had anydays off other than new yesr eve and new yesrs day, i even managed xmas week to get it all done. Do u still do the gutters in the rain smurf? Ive never really liked the idea of gutters, but im starting to think its worth pursuing, what sort of additional equipment do u use smurf?

    It's not raining hard but just drizzle at the mo so I can put up with that.

    Fist gutter clearing job will be mostly by guttervac due to awkward ladder access down the side of a 4 bed detached property. Second job is on a large bungalow with at least one blocked downspout that I will have to dismantle as the old chap has forced the blockage down to the scecond bend in the downpipe. Bless him:rolleyes:

    I've invested in quite a bit on kit that makes my job easier and safer to do especially in wet weather.

    Proper gear cost few pounds but if you price gutters right it should not be long before you get your money back

    Also you can't really put a price on knowing you will be going home to the family after work and not a&e or the morgue

    And from my experience so far many custys are impressed with the tools I have and how professional they are and as a result I get the jobs which I quote.

    I know Smurf will agree with me on this
    I reckon I have got more gutter work by using the ankalad and microlite as people see someone professional looking doing their neighbours gutters etc rather than some chancer with a ladder
    Use the right tools for the job
