Cooler weather is just around the corner, which means that winter is closer than anyone wants to admit.

How to Prepare Your Gutters
Your gutter system is a very important part of your roof, as it controls and directs runoff water from your roof. If they aren’t working properly it can cause problems with your soffits and fascia and even your foundation. Here are few ways to make sure they are ready for the change in weather that is coming your way.
Get Them Cleaned
As the leaves and other debris on the trees fall, they can fill your gutters, making it difficult for water to run through them, which results in clogs and overflow. Have a professional clean your gutters several times a year.
Check For Damage
Take a quick walk around your home and examine the appearance of your gutters. If you see any rust, corrosion, cracks or places hanging loose, contact someone for gutter repair as soon as possible.
Inspect the Downspouts
If the gutters themselves are working fine, but the spouts that allow them to drain are clogged, they still won’t function properly. Make sure your downspouts are not clogged and are in good condition.
