Gutter declutter

These days you need to contact a qualified roofer to clean your gutters as public liability insurance hikes mean that a lot of small-time operators have left the business. A professional roofer will get the job done. Robert Lewis of Roofing Experts is a trained quantity surveyor who took over the family roofing business and says gutter cleaning should be done once a year, ideally in November, after the autumnal fall. Prices start from €40, front and back, for an average three-bed semi but will vary depending on height, accessibility and area, he says. Any leaking PVC gutters can be sealed using synthetic sealant.

The company can also give your roof and chimneys the once-over and provide a free quotation on any works needed. “Make sure your contractor is fully insured and ask to see a copy of his public liability insurance,” he advises. Also ask if he or she is a member of the Guild of Master Craftsmen and or of the Construction Industry Federation.
