This is why all gutters need downspouts

    Gutter water running under shingles

    As you can see the gutter has no downspouts so they left the ends wide open to allow water to escape. During heavy rains water shoots out the back of the gutter allowing water to go under the shingles, causing it to leakThis is a picture of a downspout with no end cap and is wide open allowing water to empty out onto the roof. This allows water go go under the shingles causing a leak.

    the way to fix this is to cut the gutter is to cut where I outlined it in red and put a end cap on the gutter to close it off. Then we would need to add a downspout going into the gutter bellow
