Rain gutters protect water damage from occurring on rafter tails, including water intrusion from under footings and foundations. Rain gutters also protect fascia boards, walls, and prevents soil erosion in landscaping. They work by diverting excess rain water from over doorways, windows and entrances to downspouts. Rain gutters should be placed on all eave edges or over all entries as a minimum. Gutter cleaning should be performed as needed or on an annual basis as a minimum to prevent clogged gutters and downspouts to assure free flowing drainage away from house. In some cases gutter screen material may be beneficial to prevent frequent gutter cleaning. Trees should be kept trimmed from over roof top to prevent fallen leaves and debris from clogging rain gutters and downspouts. Pigeon waste should also be cleaned from rooftop around vents and flashings and rain gutters to prevent roof leaks and clogging of gutters. Gutter maintenance might include re-sealing joints and end caps to prevent leakage and downspout repair or replacement might become necessary to prevent water leaking upon walls or siding.

The sun will burnout the tar paper which deteriorates it and expose attic and overhang to weather causing roof leaks.
