    Thought I would post some photos of my pet hate whilst clearing gutters.

    Blocked downspouts & bends do my head in....

    This one pulled straight out so not so bad

    Scraped out what I could then had to take the joints apart as was solid.

    Was hoping to pull this straight out but no such luck so had to take the joints apart.

    It's quite common to see this too

    Indeed johnny but the ladder you see in that last pic was not set at the ideal angle so without the ankalad outriggers would have been unsafe to climb for sure..

    I can earn far more clearing gutters than I could ever do cleaning windows but can be hard work at times.

    I clear gutters all year round duncs and autum/winter months especially when it rains heavy the phone seems never to stop ringing. You soon get used to clearing sludge from gutters & unblocking downspouts but can be easier at times if dry or frozen solid.
