Are gutters always necessary?

Yes im trying to find if gutters are required on homes or.not

drip edge, drainage & gutter code requirements

I saw a rebuttal to this one a few years ago. It was done by a local engineering firm on behalf of their builder clients.

It focused on the phrase foundation walls, which a slab foundation does not have. I still report lack of them as a deficiency, where I think they are needed, but I no longer cite that as an authoritative source for my opinion.

builder engineer’s have many rebuttal/opinions
to remain pc i follow Dr. Seuss

Around my neck of the woods, builders do floating slabs, which does have a foundation wall.

Chris, could you post a larger picture. I can’t quite make out the information… :wink:
