Cleaning the gutters is important and depends on the building. Some of the determining factors include the type of trees grown around, the slope of the roof and the closeness of those trees to the roof . The lower the sloped roof the more frequent the cleaning, therefore houses with asphalt shingles too need to be cleaned more often. Not cleaning your gutter makes it clog which damages them.

Gutter Installation & Repair
Well installed gutter system includes a powerful and well-constructed gutter on every sloped roof edge. They should be well secured to the fascia, should not keep standing water and should be leakage-free. It should also have downspouts which are securely fastened to the other side of the building.
The downspouts also should not terminate too close to the foundation. This is a very common mistake by many installers and homeowners. What would be the purpose of a complete gutter system that throws all the water from the roof to foundation of the house? It is important to understand that the concrete diverters which are located under the downspout elbows cannot be adequate for water control. In many cases, sections of flexible plastic diversion pipes can be used or a small section of the downspout should be connected at the end of the elbow.
