We’re cleaning out the drip edge on a mobile home. Some call this a gutter, but it actually helps to hold the roof to the mobile home. We’re doing it to get ready to seal the roof, but it would be a good idea to either hire someone or clean them yourself about every year.

Hi, I’m Phil Bridges, owner of Straight Arrow Repair. Ever want to know how a repairman fixes things? Well come with me, and I’ll show you how I solve problems. Let’s make things better together.
So one of the things we need to do is clean out the gutter, so it sort of works and it keeps all that trash from being in our way when we seal that edge where that gutter fastens to roof. So in this case, a lot of times I use a big screwdriver or a pipe or something, but this is a handle that works pretty good for brushes.
So I’m just pushing that along and then we’ll sweep the excess, that gets on the roof off. But you, you need to get all of that out so it’ll flow good. I’ve seen it where that trees growing in there where an acorn fell in and started growing from the water that kind of stuck around. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to have somebody clean this out for you once a year.
Then you need to do this roof sealant every couple of years, you need to check it. This is what we’re going to do. And then we’ll show you what we start doing next.
This is Phil Bridges, if you like what you saw and think it might be helpful to somebody else, push that like button and let other people know what you and I know, and we’ll work together toward making a brighter future. By the way, we’re not Amera-Can’ts we’re Americans. See you next time.
