We haven’t been doing much on the house lately which is why their has been no posts about our sweet ugly abode. However yesterday we signed ourselves up for some new gutters. I took a not very serious request from Royce for me to ‘research’ gutters when I was at the Iowa State Fair…which amazingly you can do thanks to the varied industries building. I found a few companies, but was smitten by LeafGuard because on their add at the fair, their mascot instead of holding that nap-sack on a stick, at the Iowa State Fair he was holding a corndog! How can one resist a squirrel with a corndog?!
It also helped that Cost-Co backs and carries LeafGuard so we get special discounts and priority service. And well to make me not look like a complete decision making freak after looking at all the systems at the ISF this one seemed to be the most logical and has a great warranty.
So sometime in September our house will get some new drainpipes and a rain barrel and will instantly become uglier because our new gutters are cream and our paint is still brown. I need to find me a painter!
