Every time that the wind blows, a storm passes by, your gutters collect the debris left behind. Day by day gutters exposed to the elements weakens, becoming brittle and rusty. As they collect leaves, the moisture retained causes paint to peel and metal to uncover, thus allowing rust to set in. Gutters are meant to guide water away from your structure, but they are not designed to shed debris away from themselves.
