One Problem Leads to Another

I’m still dealing with the results of a bird problem that left me with some property damage. A lot of birds were resting on my gutters, and their combined body weight eventually caused the gutters to fall down. This didn’t stop the birds from hanging around on my property. They would just walk around, looking for anything on the ground to eat, while leaving droppings everywhere. I called a bird control to have the birds removed, which took care of that problem, but now I need to have my gutters repaired.

I tried to reattach the gutters on my own by climbing up on my ladder and attempting to screw them back in, but they wouldn’t stay. Not to mention, part of the gutter structure had become damaged, leaving an opening that wasn’t there before. I figured I could find some way to patch up the opening with some kind of sealant, but since I couldn’t even get the gutters to stay in place, there was no point. There was nothing I could do to fix the problem, so I’ve decided to leave it in the hands of a trained professional who knows more about gutters than I do.

I haven’t decided on a particular company to take care of my gutters because I’m trying to find the best deal. I’ve gotten some price quotes from some companies that I’ve contacted, but deciding on which one to give my business is a little difficult, especially for an indecisive person like me. It’s a miracle I was able to even decide on a company to get rid of the birds. I’ll have to make a decision before the next rain storm comes, which could happen at any time. I don’t want the rain water to collect on my property because there aren’t any gutters to drain it away.
