Do you need gutters on your house?
Gutter systems are required on homes that experience periods of heavy rainfall. Houses based in arid climates may not necessary require gutters.
How do gutters work?
Gutters are installed along rooflines to gather water from rainfall, which drains through downpipes installed on the corners of the property.
What are downpipes made of?
Downpipes are typically made of steel or polyvinyl chloride (PVC).
How do downpipes work?
Downpipes transport the water collected from the roof’s guttering into a drain built at ground level, or just the ground in general.
