I know that such gutter systems exist, as I have seen them, and I assume that it is not much of a problem on a new build, but it seems that it could present a whole other set of issues on a retrofit. Was just throwing it out for consideration.
Thank you very much, DexterII, for elaborating on this. I can clearly see your point now. The entire house has metal beams around the perimiter going from foundation all the way to the roof, so I don't think this will impact the structure much. But I will run this by a structural engineer. Thank you for bringing this up!
