Garden house with gutter - necessary or not?
In the kit for a garden shed are usually no gutters included. Many buyers are wondering if these gutters are really necessary.
Need for gutters
Roofs produce large amounts of rain that run off the roof slopes. When it rains, several hundred liters of water quickly accumulate on large roofs.
Without a gutter, the water falls from a great height onto the area next to the house or trickles down the wall. As the freefall hits water, the wall soaks in both cases. In addition, the soil drenched, which can even lead to a wet basement. For these reasons, a gutter is usually required.
Special case for summer house
A low garden house with large roof overhangs does not raise these problems. Especially when the water hits a layer of gravel, it quickly seeps away. In addition, the roofs of the houses are small, so the amounts of water are less.

For this reason a special roof drainage over gutters and downpipes is not necessary for such houses. If the water neither runs off the wall of the house nor splashes when hitting the heights, gutters can be dispensed with.
Why gutters are always sensible
However, garden shed owners should not give up hastily on good roof drainage. Forgoing rain gutters always has a disadvantage, but no advantage. Water is precious. Instead of simply letting it sink into the ground, it makes more sense to trap the precious wet in barrels.
So gutters are also extremely useful and useful in a small log cabin or greenhouse. Especially in gardens without water connection, this water is urgently needed in summer. In addition, rainwater is available free of charge, while tap water has to be paid.

Special gutters for small roof areas
Normal gutters look bulky at a small house. The diameter of these channels is usually not necessary due to the small area of the roofs. Since there is only one size in most hardware stores, many owners of the cottages believe that there is only one measure.
Roofing and gardening or greenhouses manufacturers usually also have smaller gutters available. These shops also offer brackets that attach the gutters to the roof.
Mounting the roof drainage system
Many garden and greenhouses do not allow the installation of rain gutters. Greenhouses usually have a small gutter, which leads the water to one of the front ends, but no downpipe. In the aftermarket, there are plug-in attachments that direct this water into a vertical pipe.
Garden houses often require the installation of a retaining strip to attach the gutter brackets. Since the gutter must be located next to the roof with the correct slope, it should be installed by a roofer. An incorrectly calculated gradient can lead to a backwater. The gutter overflows instead of directing the water to the down pipe.
