Clean and repair gutters
A working gutter system prevents soil erosion and water damage to the siding, and the low cost of cleaning and repairing a faulty gutter system is nothing when compared to the high cost of water damage. It's a thankless job, but every time it rains, you'll be grateful your gutters are hard at work carrying the water away from the house and foundation.
