When it comes to my home, I try to do as much of the work to keep it up and running properly as possible. If things are broken, I usually try to fix it before I bother calling a professional; I am just that kind of person. It not only keeps my costs down for home repair, but I get to learn a lot in the process about things that I would have never learned about otherwise. Some things I of course keep for the professionals and won’t bother doing myself, usually the kind of things people go to school for a number of years for. The only thing that I don’t do myself (but I know that I should) is cleaning the gutters. I used to do it myself but every time I climb up on that roof I freak out. When I was younger I could kind of handle the freaking out but now that I am older, the memory of when my leg went numb for a minute and I fell down keeps replaying in my mind like it was on a loop. Overall I am pretty healthy and I trust my legs to get me around but the idea that the one time my legs decide to give out that I could be on the top of my house just terrifies me. It is just way too dangerous. At first I was just able to come have my brother or a boyfriend if I had one at the time to come over and do it for me and afterwards I would shower them with thanks and free beer and pizza. My brother eventually moved away though and it has been awhile since I have had a boyfriend who I could make clean things for me. I skipped having anyone clean my gutters for the first year or so and when my friend found out he informed me that while my roof would probably survive one year, to push it any further would probably be a bad and possibly decision. So that is why for the past few years every spring and fall when I am supposed to go up there and clean out my gutters myself, I sit back and call a Denver roofing company and have them come do it. I found a roof repair company I have been using for a while now and I like them quite a bit. Every time I decide that it is that time of year to have the gutters cleaned again, I call them up and later that week they send out a team to quickly do it for me. I would have never thought that roofing repair companies would also clean gutters but a friend told me that a few do so I guess I got lucky. If I didn’t have them to do it I don’t know who I would be able to call. Honestly, I would probably just let the leaves rot up there and hope for the best.
