You may not give much thought to your home's gutters and downspouts on a regular basis; you may not even notice them until they start to fall away from the home or begin to leak. However, keeping those gutters and downspouts in good repair is very important for your home's overall condition, and it is also important for protecting your property and the property of your neighbours. Note how gutters and downspouts protect your home and lawn and surrounding properties.

A timber framed home is made with large beams set in a triangle shape, and which hold up the weight of the home and the roof. This is opposed to roof joists that run horizontally across the span of the home. Roof joists are typically covered in drywall and other such building materials, whereas timber frames have a very attractive look that can be left exposed. If you're thinking about a timber frame for your newly constructed home, note some questions and concerns you may have about this structural option, and this can help you decide if it's the right choice for you.
