My mind isn't in the gutter right now, it is thinking about my gutters. I own a two-story home with a walk up attic (I guess that makes the gutters 2.5 or 3 stories high). My upper gutter seems to be clogged, as I get dripping out from right smack in the middle. I do not own a ladder higher than 16', which is high enough to clean out the lower roof. I do not mind paying someone, but would like to verify what is the best way to clean gutters? Does one have to go along the length of the house and muck it out by hand? My father was once told to put "industrial" gutters on their home, as the bigger capacity makes drainage better and also makes the gutters less prone to clogging. Any truth to this? Any pros/cons? Thanks!
