I looked at a five year old house today that was built with NO gutters. Strangly enough, none of the other houses in the neighborhood had gutters either. It is in a mountain area here in Colorado. My first thought was they had not installed them due to high snow that may rip them off. (but then thought “no”). I am going to suggest gutters be installed.
Any thoughts as to WHY there would be no gutters to begin with??:shock:
And [No] there were not 5 foot eves either.:shock:
Most homes in Steamboat area do not have gutters, only drip edge. In areas with high snow loads-they will be ripped off when that big slide comes off the roof.Eaves generally hang over enough to keep moisture away from house.
I would not call out lack of gutters for defect in this area(approx 95 % don’t have them)-your area may be different.
Hope this helps.
