Technically it is possible to build your own gutter. I would do it using PVC piping. But frankly, I don't think it's worth it because getting the measurement exact could be a problem. Plus, PVC can be very heavy so you might not want to put that much strain on your roof.

What does it happen when my gutters get clogged up?


Hey Mark,
Thanks a great questions I have been asked many times by other fellow Australians. So here's the deal.

Clogged gutters are among the prime reasons for fires in both the residential and commercial real estate sector. Bush fires are a common and disastrous events in places like Australia where the climate is harsh. Even in Sydney, one of the most populated cities in the country, the temperature often exceeds the bearable maximum and the air humidity is at its lowest. Despite being a coastal city, it's a region where bush fires can occur and homeowners need to be aware of the techniques that must be applied during the seasonal temperature peaks.

Reducing the dry vegetation around the property is an essential part of preventing any bush fire. Yet, there are many flammable materials and items which can be found outdoors and the clogged gutters are one of them.To prevent an unexpected ignition, homeowners should always keep their gutters dirt and grime-free.

While it is recommended that the removal of leafs and dirt should be done by a professional gutter cleaning team, homeowners can do still do it themselves while following the local regulations. In Sydney, for example, there are specific rules for water use in Sydney and working from heights should be complied with the state's requirements.In severe situations with a high risks of a fire, gutters must be filled with water to provide additional security for the building.

Keypoints
Here are the prime reasons you should take care of your gutters:
  • to prevent water damage
  • to prevent fire harardz
  • to prevent pest infestations

Here's some additional useful information:

How do gutter guards work?


they work like a screen, letting water into the gutter but holding leaves and solid objects outside of it. this allows the water inside the gutters to flow freely without being blocked by these objects

What are the best gutter guards?


Easy Flow Gutter Guards are the only gutter guard in the world that can be attached to an existing 5k or 6k gutter system (This is the continuous aluminum gutter system most used in America today) without compromising the integrity of the roof. Easy Flow Gutter Guards attach under the flashing on the fascia boards, protecting the fascia from all contact with rain or other forms of moisture.
