In the attached images you can find some of the consequences of the lack of a guttering system at your home.

rain gutter (also known as eaves trougheaves channel guttering or simply as a gutter) is a narrow channel, or trough, forming the component of a roof system which collects and diverts rainwater shed by the roof.

A rain gutter may be a(n):

  • 1. Roof integral trough along the lower edge of the roof slope which is fashioned from the roof covering and flashing materials.
  • 2. Discrete trough of metal, or other material that is suspended beyond the roof edge and below the projected slope of the roof.
  • 3. Wall integral structure beneath the roof edge, traditionally constructed of masonry, fashioned as the crowning element of a wall.

The main purpose of a rain gutter is to protect a building’s foundation by channeling water away from its base. They also help to reduce erosion, prevent leaks in basements and crawlspaces, protect painted surfaces by reducing exposure to water, and provide a means to collect rainwater for later use.

Rain gutters can be constructed from a variety of materials, including cast, lead, zinc, galvanised steel, painted steel, copper, painted aluminium, PVC (and other plastics), concrete, stone, and wood.

Water collected by a rain gutter is fed, usually via a downspout (traditionally called a leader or conductor), from the roof edge to the base of the building where it is either discharged or collected. A collection system strategy for water carried from rain gutters may include a rain barrel or a cistern.
