A rain gutter is a narrow channel, or trough or duct, forming the component of a roof system, which collects rainwater from the roof of a building and diverts it away from the structure, typically into a drain. The main purpose of a rain gutter is to protect the building’s foundation by channeling water away from its base. They can be made from a variety of materials such as cast iron, lead, zinc, painted steel, galvanized steel, painted aluminium, PVC (other plastics), copper, stone, concrete and wood. Water collected by the gutter is fed, usually through a downpipe, from the roof edge of the base of the building where it is either discharged or collected. The gutter also helps to prevent leaks in basements and crawlspaces and also helps to reduce erosion. Moreover, it also protects painted or stained surfaces by reducing exposure to water and it also provides a means to collect rainwater for later use. Water from rain gutters may be collected in a rain barrel or cistern.

There are many types of rain gutters and some of them may be a discreet trough of metal, or other material that is suspended beyond the roof edge and below the projected slope of the roof. Rain gutters may be equipped with micro mesh screens, gutter screens, solid hoods or louvers to allow water from the roof to flow through while reducing passage of roof debris into the gutter. A technology called the cold forming technology exists to allow continuous gutters to be created on site, in long individual lengths suitable to roof edge conditions, thereby reducing joints along the length of the gutter. Another type may be a wall integral structure beneath the roof edge, traditionally constructed of masonry and is fashioned as a crowning element of a wall. One other type may be the roof integral trough along the lower edge of the roof slope which is fashioned from the roof covering and flashing materials. A box gutter is a deep gutter which is concealed within the structure of the roof.
