    I know you guys make alot of money during the spring and summer. THat is prob. your top money maker. But, what do you do in the fall and winter. I do leaf cleanups in the fall and some snow in the winter but what else is there to do? Do you have other jobs for the fall and winter? Any input would help. Thanks!

    Construction (family thing) (but doubt this input was much help to you) Most I knew (when roofing full time) would sale firewood.

    thanks for the responce but, if you don't mind me askin, how much do you charge for firewood? I was thinking of doing that. I would need to go out and buy a log splitter. Where do you get the wood from? For me, i could, if i wanted, get trees from the guys who take them down and dump them at my house for free. I just don't know if its worth it and how much you could make. Thanks again!
