Spring and warmer temperatures are the perfect time to get started on your home projects. While cleaning your gutters can be a hassle and one of the projects you ignore, it’s important to get it done! You’ll need a ladder for your gutter cleaning so Nor’Easter Roofing has a few tips to stay safe as you clean!


  • To prevent leaving marks on your home, use a stand-off with your ladder. They also will increase your stability so that you’re not as unsteady as you make your way up to your gutters.
  • Before you place your ladder, check the area around you. Avoid areas that are muddy, icy or snow to prevent any injuries to yourself or those around you. It’s also important to ensure that the ground is level so that you and the ladder don’t tip and come crashing down to the ground.
  • Be sure that as you make your way up your ladder, you’re climbing with dry shoes. If you’re using a hose to help with cleaning your gutters, have a towel handy to dry off your shoes if they get wet in the process.
