In order to be closer to my Mother, I purchased an older fixer upper. I have pretty much depleted my reno budget, but after the recent hurricane and subsequent rains, I have noticed a trench of sorts where the rains roll off the roof. I can not at this time afford gutters, and was wondering what other options there might be. I am 57 and though definitely not afraid of working, there are some physical limitations. Your expert advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
