Last week, it rained for 36 hours straight, some of it a screaming downpour.

During the screaming downpour, I looked out the window and noticed that water was pouring over the sides of the gutter that runs across the front of my roof, and cutting a deep but narrow trench along the front of my house, on the side where we'd had the basement leakage.

I was prepared for trouble...but all we got was a modest bit of seepage near, but not at the same place as, the last puddles I'd had in my basement. No real puddle. This time.

So I called Contractor Guy again. He got back on the ladder and noted that my gutters were already jam-packed with leafy crap. Short of cutting down some of my trees, he suggested upgrading to a wider gutter--which is what I was going to request anyway. Stay tuned....
