Most professionally installed gutter systems are designed to last for 20 years or more. To get the most out of your gutters, the first and most important step is to clean them regularly. Leaf debris in a gutter can cause clogging, which leads to the gutter sagging and possibly pulling away under the weight of the excessive water or ice building up in it. The second most important thing to getting the most out of your gutters is to notice anything unusual about them.
