Safety Tips before Inspecting Your Gutters

By October 16, 2015October 18th, 2023No Comments

Cleaning your gutters prevent them from clogging. With autumn well underway, leaves will start falling into your gutters, which can clog them. The flow of water is then obstructed, and can it run down your siding and damage it. You can try cleaning out your gutters on your own, but climbing up a ladder to your roof can be risky.

Seamless Exteriors understands the difficulties of inspecting and cleaning your gutters on your own. Let us give you these safety tips before you climb up your roof:

Make Sure the Ladder is in Good Condition and is Stable

The first thing you should do is to inform someone in your household that you are going up the roof to check your gutters. Make sure that the ladder you are using is in good-condition. It should come with a small shelf where you can put a bucket to collect gutter debris. It will also be better if you have someone hold the ladder to ensure its stability. Pick the appropriate ladder for your home; a four-legged ladder is good for a single-story structure while an extension ladder works best for taller buildings. Fortunately, you do not need to put yourself at risk when you work with us. We offer gutter-cleaning services that will make sure water flows smoothly to the downspout, which will also help you avoid having to climb up your roof.

Wear Protective Gear

Wearing heavy-duty gloves and safety goggles will protect you from rough edges and sharp debris in and around your gutters. This will also prevent loose debris from harming your eyes. Seamless Exterior has many years of experience handling gutter cleaning and installation cases. We always use protective gear when we do our job. In addition, we can install metal gutter guards in Cedar Falls IA, and the local areas. These feature a unique design that prevents debris from clogging your gutters in the first place.

Wear Rubber Soled Shoes

While it tends to rain less in the fall, it pays to be prepared. Wearing a pair of rubber shoes provides you added traction on your roof, keeping you from slipping. We are familiar with the local weather pattern and we know the best time to work on your gutters. Even if the weather becomes an issue, we have the appropriate gear to help us finish the job.

Your safety is important to us as well as your investments. You can be sure that Seamless Exterior will address your needs. For gutter installation services, call us today.
