    This time instead of pine needles the roof valleys are blocked with moss & sods.

    Oh deep joy :(

    I can't say I enjoy doing them anymore to be honest as I very rarely get easy straight forward jobs to do.
    That's probably why I seem lately to moan so much on here :rolleyes:

    Mind you was a long roof valley to do on both sides of the main apex.

    Other side of dorma window the roof valley was cleared from the ground.

    All the guttering was cleared out and downspouts checked and unblocked as I went along then started on the back.

    Cheers tench0771

    I've found it can be hard work no matter how large or small the property is. The ones you think are going to be easy to do are the ones that can be a real pain in the **** too.

    Just like to say those progutter pro-g gutter cleaning tools are ideal for roof valley clearing work too as makes the job so much easier to do.:)
