Integral Gutters

Integral Integral Integral


The integral gutter was a popular gutter style in the 1960's. The gutter is inserted between the end of the rafters and the fascia on a sloped roof. It is lined with roofing material and can hold more water than most of the other types of gutters. However, the potential for leaks is very great. These gutters need to be carefully inspected every few years and the lining replaced or repaired every five to ten years. Replacing this system with seamless aluminum gutters is the best solution, but is only possible at the time of re-roofing.
