Channel Drain for Roof Runoff?
I’m very intrigued by the idea of replacing the decrepit, leaky gutters on my home with some type of ground solution. I’ve found articles like the following to be very inspiring: https://www.greenbuildingadvisor.com/article/ground-gutters
My question is: can a similar thing be achieved using channel drains installed at the dripline of the roof? The only thing I’m looking to manage is roof runoff and aesthetics where this would need to be applied are not a concern. I am in zone 6 and can drain to daylight no problem.
An example of what I mean by a channel drain is here: https://www.ndspro.com/products/drainage/channel-and-trench-drains/spee-d-channel-drains.html
Thank you so much!
