You’ll probably be surprised to learn that Rain gutters have been around since Between 3000 BC and 1500 BC with The Harappan civilization. They exist in various different materials from Plastics to Copper and Concrete to Wood!

The main reason we have gutters today is pretty much the same reasons we have always had them, to protect our properties from water damage like erosion, staining to paint work and to also gather water to utilize later.

Other reasons are obvious like during a downpour if there is no gutter or if the gutter is blocked its virtually pouring onto people beneath.

Some people collect rain water as a way to be more green and save on water costs, when the rain water is collected via the down pipe (traditionally called a leader or conductor) it is then collected in some kind of holding tank.
