According to the Sydney Morning Herald, four out of five NSW residents with high-fronted gutters have experienced problems including water seeping into their homes.
High-fronted gutters, which the Sydney Morning Herald says are installed in 9 out of 10 homes, are favoured for their easy installation.
Construction experts have lobbied the government for years over concerns that high-front gutters are contributing to mould, timber rot and building deterioration.
Based on a survey ordered by the Minister, more than 8 out of 10 residents who had problems with their guttering, suffered damage to their homes as a result of high-front gutters.
Problems reported in the survey due to high-front gutters included collapsed ceilings, damaged plasterboard and water running down the walls.
