Gutters

Related Story

The gutters in your home can back up during the fall and winter, but paying someone to clean them can cost a fortune.

How 2 expert David Stringfellow shows us how to do-it-yourself without the added danger of using a ladder all for less than $20.

Leaves and debris build up in gutters causing pooling, which leads to your downspout rushing water onto your lawn, potentially ruining it.

Extending your downspout can help alleviate that flooding by directing water away from your garden or lawn.

A lot of injuries happen when people climb ladders. In the segment Stringfellow introduces a product called the ultimate Water Blaster by Bon-Aire. It has an expandable wand that extends above the roof making it easy to clean without risking falling off a ladder.

A nozzle helps to keep pressure focused in the gutter, making it an effective and cheap solution at only $15. It can also be used to clean high windows and wood trim.

Gutter inserts are an option to prevent debris build up. They come in both aluminum and vinyl and allow water through but block leaves and debris, much like a kitchen strainer.
