No, in the southern California area, builders are not required to install Rain Gutters. Some conscientious builders do include a complete Rain Gutter system, some supply only a partial system, but most will not include Rain Gutters.
The seamless rain gutter machine was invented in the early 60’s and became available for commercial use in 1969. Before this, gutters were fabricated by hand on a 10-foot sheet metal brake (which bends and forms the gutter into shape). These sections of gutter were installed with the seam every 10 feet. Our seamless gutter machines can now fabricate sections to fit the exact measurements of your house, we can produce lengths over 100 feet without a seam.
We are all lucky to live in San Diego with the best climate in the world. Even though our annual rain fall is limited, we have plenty of low-lying cloud cover as well as regular morning and evening dew and condensation. This water does not have the volume or velocity to exit the roof and fall away from the house. It will wick back to the fascia and cause many problems over time, including wood rot and stucco damage. Most of the time this will go un-noticed until it is too late.
Protects your foundation
Excess moisture around the foundation will cause hydrostatic pressure, erosion and settling of the soil. Over time this movement will result in cracking and other foundation damage. The main purpose for rain gutters is to capture the roof water and drain it to a controllable area via downspout. This will allow the homeowner to direct the water away from the foundation.
Prevents landscaping erosion
Instead of roof water falling along the entire perimeter of the house, gutters will direct it to a controllable area with downspouts so that this runoff can be taken away from your landscaping. Preferably into a ground drain system.
Preserves your house in general
Unmanaged roof water can also cause wood rot to fascia and other framing. Siding and stucco can swell and crack, the staining from splatter is the most common problem. A quality seamless gutter system will also help protect doors and windows. Unfortunately, most homeowners are unaware of these possibilities until the damage is already done.
