You have no favorite boards.
Do you like to do it yourself or pay someone to do it? I just did the tile in the kitchen and bathroom and loved it but I think I am going to leave new gutters up to the professionals
mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
I did my gutters a couple years ago. It was a breeze. I only have a one story house, no way would I have done it on a 2 story house, but that's mainly because I don't do heights.
I've never paid anyone to do anything at my house, but I've also never done anything real complicated. The biggest job I've done is pull up all my carpet and stain the concrete floor.
I need to do my kitchen counters, but I'm not entirely confident that I'm handy enough for that.
Only reason Im not trying the gutters is because we are getting rid of the well and going with a cistern. So they have to be hooked up to that.
I have completely remodeled both the kitchen and bathroom at my house and done hundreds of other DIY projects. There are also some things that I have left to the professionals. My roof for example. I am not afraid of heights, but my roof has a very steep pitch, so last summer I paid to have that done. My kitchen counter top was another item that I paid to have done. While I did everything else including installing the new cupboards, dishwasher, new drywall, new floor, new light fixture, etc. I wasn't comfortable, and don't have the finish carpentry skills needed to get the counter tops right.
My wife loves those kind of projects, but I hate that stuff. I would rather just pay somebody. Now, finding somebody competent is a whole 'nother story..........
Life is hard. It's really hard if you're stupid.
