I did this one today...cleared the gutters then cleaned all the plastics afterwards without the need to use any ladders at all which made a nice change. ;)

 

Ladder minimisation policy & all that...not only that they can get bloody heavy to cart about for an old timer like me :D

I had it set on wide angle to record the vid whilst doing the guttering inspection then in real player saved this pic from it to post it on here.

 

There was not much in that one :D

 

Other option was to get me ladders off the van and maybe do some tile walking to have a look without my gopro so saved me loads of time and effort.

There where 2 gutter runs in all on that one you could not have inspected them by ladder safely. The little one on the side would have been impossible to get to by ladder due to a very narrow gap between the side of the house and next door double garage which was inline with the end wall of the house. Not only that trying to get a ladder up on the corner next doors their tall shrubs were in the way.

My price is to check & clear gutters & downspouts where required so NO I did not knock anything off the final bill :D

The ladder is not doing to go anywhere when using an ankalad & microlite standoff resting on roof tiles but you still might so you need to concentrate on what you are doing. To my knowledge that setup has never been tested with someone taking a fall whilst strapped to the ladder using a harness. After saying that I sometimes use a vertical lifeline & harness on that ladder setup like this.

Do you have to have a harness or anything like that to do gutter cleaning off a ladder or is it ok to just go up as normal with this kind of set up?
