I joined this site as I'm getting ready to do some work on my house and need some direction. My house was built in 1948 and was remodeled when I bought it in 2009. The paint is already chipping off, the windows may be the originals and desperately need new ones as three are rotting out. I also need new gutters and possibly a new roof.

Clean the ducting in the last six months? 17,000 dryer fires annually!
