I cannot believe it! I'm in full Victor Meldrew mode!
So I need to paint some old zinc guttering and the fascia that supports it, I had the foresight to not paint the new stuff, I'll just leave it bare, no maintenance and doesn't look out the way! Still need to stain the fascia though!
So I'll try again, heres the thing...........to take down the guttering and give yourself an easy job i.e. rub down, undercoat and then top coat on the ground, also leaving the fascia fully exposed to make life easier for rubbing down and staining; you have to take off the first course of roof tiles!!!!! Grrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!
How blooming crazy is that!!!???
So now I am going to bodge!! You don't know how much I hate to bodge, toshing-in behind the gutter and getting paint on stain and stain on paint, omg!!!
Now, if I were putting up the guttering, I would only use the 2 screw holes at the top of the bracket and not the 1 at the bottom of the bracket. The bottom hole/screw is behind the guttering, so you cannot get at it to take the guttering down!!!
If somebody has the answer without taking down half the roof, please don't spare my feelings, I'd be forever in your debt!!
