We have two pieces of guttering that have popped out of their clips and are causing problems when it rains (problems of damp and problems of SWMBO telling me I haven't fixed it for 3 years!).
Problem is there is quite an overhang on the roof and when I tried to get the ladders up to problem #1 I found it too uncomfortable (unsafe!) to lean back and use two hands trying to persuade the gutter back into place. I do have a ladder stay but it doesn't seem to be quite enough.
Problem #2 is a piece right on the corner of the house, again where there is an overhang and on this one I can't work out at all how to get a ladder to it safely as on one side the next door garage is in teh way and from the oyther corner it would be difficult to reach anyway.
I've asked a couple of roofing people who were in the area if they wouldn't mind sorting these out and they've said yes but never come back :( It seems a pathetically small job to call someone out for but it's been dragging on for ages.
Is there a technique or tool I need to be aware of or should I just bite the bullet and call someone out. (frankly it would be done in 10 mins!).
I have one - a white enamelled on which is fine for some stuff - but it doesn't get me far enough out to get past and over the gutter - do they come in different sizes or is there a way of fixing it to get more distance?
