Roof is fine, and actually a better place to put your stabalizer arms than
side of the house. You never want pull the debris over your head and down
into a bucket.
I don't want to argue with you guys but you want to be real careful taking
out chunks of ice. Unless is above 32 or 33 degrees, that frozen chunk you
try to pry out needs to be pursuaded with a tool or wedge of some type. Anything
with a sharp edge can easily rip a thin piece of gutter aluminum, Even a dull
rounded edge will rip through a gutter with the slightest amount of pressure.
I know this from Experience, A few years ago I drop some cash replacing
some damage my guys did.
I think the answer to my original question is that I am stuck until the
temp rises. May get my wish starting Sunday, I love accuweather.com

The extra work shouldn't be frustrating if
they realize there's twice as much time to get it done.
Gutters are not part of my window
business - but I know they are for many.
Anyway, I plan to try Jeff's suggestion on
my own gutters which need a 2nd cleaning. A thought I had - since my gutters
have so many of those support hanger thingies that get in the way
when you're cleaning - is to heap snow melt near each hanger.
That way, I should be able
to pry 3 foot sections of frozen gutter gunk out - from between the
Safety question. Is it OK to set a ladder
standoff on the roof above the gutter? Or do I need to be careful to set it on
the wall or fascia?
