Don't neglect your gutters! If not properly maintained, these vital drainage conduits could cause trouble during the winter, leading to ice or water damage. If you notice your gutters and downspouts are overflowing with leaves or seem not to be draining properly, give them a good cleaning, confirm that they are firmly affixed to the house, and make sure the downspouts drain away from the foundation. While these steps may cost you an afternoon, a few hours' work is a small price to pay when you consider the expensive consequences of putting it off.
