Yes and no. What sometimes happens is that water now gets directed immediatly to the outside foundation when it rains, more pooling water = more issues. And what inevietably happens is folks seal these screens in for the wintertime....then the trouble begins.
I'm leanin towards caution since I do not know the grade issues, trees that fill the gutters and it's normal use.
But I would say go for it, and enjoy.
