Winter is upon us. It's hard to get motivated to work on your home. Tax time is approaching, the weather is dreary and maintenance is rarely fun or rewarding. When was the last time you heard someone make a New Year's resolution to keep their gutters clean? Well, keeping your gutters clean may fit in well with your resolution to save some money this year. Clogged gutters lead to rotten trim, fascia and roof decking. They are also one of the best ways for water to find it's way into your crawl space. The next time it rains, take out the umbrella and walk around your home to make sure your gutters are functioning properly. Then, the next time you spend some money on your home, it will be to improve it rather than repair it.
