I was wondering about something. My gutters are the typical aluminum
things, just like you'd find on the shelf at your local big box. Even
the back side of the house, which really has no overhanging trees, had a
lot of garbage in it. I was wondering why the shape of a typical gutter
was the way it was. I would think that something like a half-round
shape would be less likely to clog, as all the garbage would settle to
the very bottom, to be washed away by even a light rain. Without a
regular heavy rain, the flat bottomed gutters would seem to me to be
more susceptible to buildup.
Is my reasoning wrong?
ISTR seeing old copper gutters that were, in fact, a half round shape...
