First off when the weather gets cooler, we will all see the leaves begin to fall from the trees. Most of which make it to the ground. While some get trapped in the gutters of homes. Left unattended, gutters and drains will become clogged. Leaving nowhere for water to flow, and could potentially leak into the house . The same of which can go for snow an ice. If snow is melting and than refreezing. It could be causing ice dams to build up, and doing further damage to the gutter. Ice dams put weight stress on gutters.
