Chicago Gutters Installation and Removal
A rain gutter (also known as eavestrough, guttering or just gutter) is a narrow channel, or trough, forming the component of a roof system which collects and diverts rainwater shed by the roof. In many buildings, the purpose of this diversion is to prevent drips off the roof edges. These drips can cause structural damage over time to the walls or the foundation of a building. However, in others the purpose is also to harvest rainwater, for household or garden use.
Rain gutter can be constructed from a variety of materials, including galvanised or painted steel, copper, PVC and other plastics, concrete, and stone.
Water collected by a rain gutter is fed, usually via a downpipe, to a collection system, either a rainwater tank or a stormwater main or sewer main. In some locations where collection to a main is not feasible, the water is dispersed into stormwater pits.
Different styles of gutter are available to suit the design of the roof, the building method and the desired appearance. Exposed rain gutter is available in a variety of profiles to suit the appearance of the building. Common exposed rain gutter is fixed to the fascia board, which in turn is fixed to the ends of the rafters.
