YANKEE GUTTERS on Slate Roofs
Also called Philadelphia Gutters, Pole Gutters, Flush Gutters and Standing Gutters, this gutter system is built on the plane of the roof, as opposed to Built-in or Box Gutters, which are recessed below the plane of the roof, usually at the eaves. Yankee gutters are common on older slate roofs.
Many home owners who have built-in or box gutters on their roofs, or Yankee gutters, don’t know the difference between them. The illustrations below, gleaned from old texts, show what Yankee gutters look like. A box gutter (built-in gutter) is shown immediately below.
