Guttering - Which Pieces Go Where - Jargon Explained

You may not realise the importance of your guttering system, but consider what would happen to your home without gutters. Any rainfall would run directly off of the roof and collect at the foot of the building structure – and in no time at all this would undermine your foundations. Your driveway and garden would soon be flooded from the excess surface water. Rainwater running down your external walls would cause damage to the brickwork, windows and doors. I think you get the picture. Gutters may not be glamorous but they certainly are necessary!

Gutter Supplies have created this infographic will explain exactly what gutters are and why they need to be installed in a specific way. You will also learn about each specific part of the guttering system, its correct name and what role it plays.
