Gutters prevent water going into the structure of your house by channelling rainwater from the outside walls and the underlying foundations. This helps to avoid dampness inside the house which could otherwise lead to the growth of mould or even the rotting of internal timber walls. There must be a sufficient slope or angle of the structure to allow the rainwater to discharge smoothly into the guttering and away from the house, generally with a minimum pitch of 1 in 360 toward the drainage. However this overall pitch will depend upon the materials used, which is around 25% for slate or 35% for machine made tiles.

Where two pitched roofs meet at an angle, the join will need to be sealed with a valley flashing to prevent any leaks. Another important design consideration is the overall capacity of the gutter, which must be able to handle the required discharge outfall capacity. Your experienced consultant will be able to help determine this figure based on your overall area and expected rainfall levels in your area. Upon capture by the guttering, rainwater will then be fed via a downpipe to the base of the building where it can be discharged into the general septic system or collected for later re-use such as gardening, laundry or other greywater purposes.

Depending on your location and climate, eaves and gutters are generally made from a variety of materials including zinc, galvanized steel, PVC or even stone or concrete. Gutter guards are used to help prevent problems from blocked gutters and reduce the need for regular cleaning. These are also known as gutter cover, protectors or leaf guards).
