It ensures your gutters can withstand everything the elements throw at them and still remain in a functional state. The last thing you want is for your gutters to fail in the middle of a heavy storm. In much the same way that you don’t want your car to break down in a heavy downpour or your boiler to pack up in the dead of winter.
