Keeping your gutters and downspouts clean is an important part of maintaining your home, since rainwater can run over or behind them and rot the eaves if they become clogged.
More information on cleaning and repairing gutters can be found in our article The Trouble with Gutters and video How to Clean Gutters.
Thanks for the video. Most homeowners regret this part, but doing this, and other maintenance, can actually preserve the value of your home. In addition, dried leaves can cause fire as what happened in Meet the Parents 1 (I know it’s a movie, but it can happen in real life LOL).
