Re: Why Do I Need Gutters?
Yes. Water falling from that height and in quantity will erode the roof coating where it lands. If sufficient quantities fall, pooling can occur which will then result in water finding it's way under the roof coating and causing leaks. For this same reason, upstairs gutters that have downspouts draining onto the roof surface below should be directed in the same direction as the roof covering, not perpendicular to it.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
