Gutter Cleaning


I built a "blower extension" out of 2" PVC pipe (and 45 degree elbow), several years ago. Built it to attach to my gas-powered leaf blower. It worked great on single-story house gutters. Fantastic, actually!

I experimented with several set-ups to clean the gutters on our current 2-story house. Unfortunately, they were all either far too heavy, or too flexible, to be of any use.

Gutter Cleaning


I found a 32' Ladder, very new looking on Craigslist.
Problem solved for now.
I might look into gutter guards when I re-roof in the next 1-2 years.

Gutter Cleaning


Another option is have seamless gutters installed. The process is similar with the exception that the gutter channels are made on site with a machine that takes flat aluminum stock and extrudes it to the K-style shape for any length as long as the flat aluminum stock does not run out. Seamless gutters have less connections and are less likely to leak. more here
