Gutters and Downspouts
GUTTERS and DOWNSPOUTS should be
installed to keep rainwater away from the
foundation of the building (fig. 6-58). Some
gutters are built in the cornice and connected
to the downspouts (fig. 6-59). The most common
types of gutters used are shown in figure 6-60.
Gutters and downspouts may be made of
galvanized metal, copper, or aluminum. Some
have a factory-applied enamel finish. Plastic
gutters and downspouts are also available.
The INTERIOR FINISH consists mainly of the
coverings applied to the rough inside walls, ceiling,
and subfloors. Other interior finish items are ceiling
and wall coverings, doorframes and window frames,
stairs, floor covering, and wood trims. When re-
quired, installation of kitchen and built-in cabinets
are considered part of the interior finish.
