Pole gutters are an integral part of your home’s gutter system because pole gutters divert water ﬂow away. Pole gutters are generally used with built-in gutters and on historic buildings. Pole gutters are especially effective at catching sliding ice on steeply-sloped roofs and preventing wood cornice work from collecting excess rainwater.
All in all, pole gutters combined with built-in trough gutters will provide a visually pleasing, virtually hidden roof drainage system. However, because of their hidden nature, it is imperative that you check your pole gutters twice per year to make sure water isn’t leaking behind them and that there are no obstructions.
