How Do I Clean Gutters On A Shake Roof?
Hey there! Cleaning gutters on a shake roof can be a little tricky, but I’m here to help. Here are some tips to get you started:
- Make sure you have the right equipment, including a sturdy ladder and a scoop or trowel for removing debris.
- Use caution when walking on the roof to avoid damaging the shingles or tiles.
- Begin by removing any large debris by hand, such as leaves, twigs, and branches.
- Use a garden hose or pressure washer to flush out smaller debris, working from the far end of the gutter toward the downspout.
- If the gutter is especially dirty, you can add a cleaning solution to the water to help break down buildup and stains.
- Be sure to check the downspout for any clogs or blockages that may prevent proper drainage.
Hope these tips help you get your gutters nice and clean.
