Gutters are easy to overlook when building a home. It isn’t uncommon to get near the end of building a new house and wonder “will my builder install gutters?”

Gutter installation is often the responsibility of the homeowner.  


The first thing to do

Not sure if your builder will install gutters on your new home? The first thing you should do is take a look at the specifications that were included in your sales contract. Everything that was included in your build will be listed here. It will give you a clear idea of what your builder was responsible for.

And if you still have questions, contact your builder. They’ll be able to quickly answer your questions.

Why weren’t gutters included

Every community and builder is different. In some communities, new builds include front gutters. In others, builders install downspouts. Other communities include a full gutter installation.

A builder might not include gutters for a variety of reasons. Often times they prefer to leave gutter installation to contractors who specialize in gutters.
