Clogged downspouts can back up water onto your rooftop, causing leaks & debris to back up along valleys. Loose & rotting fascia can let your gutters come loose in a rainstorm or heavy wind & come crashing down. Years of accumulated debris can weigh down a gutter, allowing water to come sheeting over the top during the rainy season.

Preventing Your Gutters from Freezing
Although icicles may look pretty hanging from your gutters, they can do serious damage to your home. Here are some tips to help prevent this damage.
Properly Sloped Gutters
The correct slope of a rain gutter will allow water to drain properly to the downspout eliminating the possibility of freezing
Prior to the cold weather setting in be sure to clean the gutters, wet leaves will damn the water & not allow the water to flow out.
Consider sprinkling some rock salt in your gutters, it will melt the ice just as it does on driveways & walkways.
Snow removal from the roof
When a large blizzard hits it is almost impossible to keep the gutters clear. One way to keep them snow free is to remove the snow as soon as possible. You may consider investing in a roof rake to help with this project.
Heated Gutter Cables
Despite all you have done, if you continue to have a problem with ice forming in the gutters you may consider purchases a heated cable. Stringing the cable on the top of the gutter will melt the ice & allow the water to flow.
When should you get gutters cleaned?
The typical time to clean your gutters should be late in spring, & early in autumn, that's twice a year. However, conditions such as leaking gutters & mold, damaged roofs & fascias, water erosions, & cracks in your driveway & bird nests & bugs can call for an early cleaning.
What happens if gutters are not cleaned?
Uncleaned gutters can be subject to structural failure in some buildings. The extreme consequences result from water dripping from the gutters that soften the soil around the foundation, which leads to cracks.
