Don't Let Your Gutters Get Like This
It seems like an unimportant, mundane part of homeownership, but make sure you clean out your gutters, or hire someone to do it, each fall after the leaves come down. You don't want to have to hire Mr. Fix It to come out to take care of them in December, when any water that is stuck in your gutters is frozen. It makes is much harder and more expensive. If you have dandelions growing in your gutters in December, that is a bad sign.
This is a service Mr. Fix It provides, but when the weather is freezing and it's snowing, it's going to come at a premium. Mr. Fix It's fingers are still frozen.
