Here is a an explanation of what a gutter (another name is eavestrough) and a downspout are:
A rain gutter (eavestrough) is a component of a water discharge system for a building. It is necessary to prevent water dripping or flowing off roofs in an uncontrolled manner for several reasons: to prevent it damaging the walls, drenching persons standing below or entering the building, and to direct the water to a suitable disposal site where it will not damage the foundations of the building (C) Wikipedia
When your eavestrough (gutters) accumulate leaves and twigs, pine needles and cones, little rocks from asphalt shingles and dust, they stop draining and the entire system gets compromised. After some time clogged gutters (eavestroughs) and downspouts will transition from a cleaning problem to more expensive structural problems: sagging gutters, sloping problem, leaky gutters. It’s much cheaper to clean eavestrough (gutters) and downspouts than to repair them.
Here is how it all works together.
