Gutters, in De Pere, are the narrow channels, or troughs, forming the component of a roof system aiding in collection and diversion of rainwater shed by the roof. The main purpose of the rain gutters is to protect a building's foundation by channeling water away from its base, reducing erosion, preventing leaks in basements and crawlspaces, protecting painted surfaces by reducing exposure to water, and providing a means to collect rainwater for later use.
Gutters in De Pere are generally made of a variety of materials, including cast iron, lead, zinc, galvanised steel, painted steel, copper, painted aluminium, PVC & other plastics, concrete, stone, and wood.
Downspouts in De Pere are, on the other hand, vertical pipes designed to carry the rainwater from a gutter to ground level in a sewer or rainwater harvesting tanks or into the ground through seepage.
