Dangers Associated with DIY Gutter Repair

 

Saving money always seems like a good idea, which is why many homeowners spend their free time attempting do-it-yourself repair. However, some home improvement projects are better suited for DIY repair than others. One project that should always be left to professionals is gutter repair. Before you climb a ladder to fix your gutters, learn more about these associated dangers:


·         Ladders are dangerous: All it takes is one misstep to send you to the hospital.

·         Sharp edges: Don’t be fooled by how tame your home’s gutters look. They have sharp, metal edges that can easily cut you.

·         Poor roof conditions: You might not have a problem climbing onto the roof to clean out gutters or fix a problem, but if the roof is wet or icy, you could end up slipping and falling.

·         Transporting materials: Climbing a ladder with a load of heavy-duty materials is no small task. Again, think twice about doing this yourself or you could risk a hospital stay and a big bill.
