Seamless gutters have been around for hundreds of years. They were first developed by the Indus Valley Civilization around 3,000 BC and were merely clay drains covered with blocks. Ultimately, the Roman Realm included seamless gutters to roadways and also sidewalks to catch rainwater. This ancient civilization also brought rain gutters to England around 47 AD, when the Norman Realm ruled. During this moment, numerous buildings were reconstructed with stone roofs as well as parapets decorated with gargoyles.
