Residential demand for gutter and downspout products in the US is forecast to rise 2.0% per year to $4.1 billion, equivalent to 1.7 billion linear feet, in 2025. Advances will be supported by:

  • the replacement of older or worn roofs, as gutters and downspouts are often replaced as part of roof repair and replacement projects
  • rising interest in the use of gutters and downspouts to direct water away from basements and building foundations to minimize water damage
  • expanding use of gutter guards to prevent gutters from being clogged by fallen leaves, pine needles, and other debris, which minimizes the need to periodically clean gutters, a time-consuming and potentially dangerous task

However, faster growth will be limited by high levels of pandemic-related spending on homes in 2020 and 2021 – particularly single-family units, where most gutter and downspouts are installed. Beyond 2022, residential construction spending is expected to return to normal levels, and the large number of products installed during the pandemic will preclude additional sales gains through 2025.

Surging Home Renovation Activity Amid COVID-19 Pandemic Boosts Near-Term Sales

Pandemic-related increases in housing completions and surging home renovation activity boosted demand growth for gutters and downspouts in 2020 and 2021. Additionally, multiple severe weather events across the US that caused widespread damage to roofs in 2020 and early 2021 aided growth, as gutters are often repaired and replaced at the same time as reroofing projects. From a high base, demand is expected to slow after 2022, as construction spending returns to normal levels. Though home renovation activity is expected to remain elevated compared to the pre-pandemic period, if much lower than its 2020 peak, the large number of products installed during the pandemic will preclude greater long-term sales in this market.

More Consumers Are Continuing to Invest in Gutter Guards

Through 2025, demand growth for gutter guards will continue to outpace that of the overall market as homeowners increasingly opt to install these products along with gutters and downspouts (either existing or new) in order to reduce the need for periodic cleaning. Continued gains for gutter guards will be driven by replacement sales as the base of homes with gutter and downspout systems featuring these products expands. Homeowners replacing gutter guards will also be more likely to upgrade to higher value products for their aesthetic and performance advantages.

Design Trends Favoring Hip Style Roofs Will Bolster Gains

Though demand for gutter and downspout products tends to track the number of new homes built, other factors also impact demand, including characteristics of new homes. Growth in demand for gutter and downspout products will be supported, for example, by the increasing number of new homes built with hip style roofs instead of traditional gable style roofs. Hip style roofs slope on all four sides of the home and typically require gutters along each slope, whereas a gable roof only requires gutters on two sides of the home.
