"Why not put rain gutters in rows along the wood siding on the sunny side of the house[?] It might look weird, but that was where all the heat, sun and protection from damage is best.We went to Home Depot and selected some "attractive" brown plastic gutters along with all the required parts so that we could mount them in one long row. (The total length or a row would be about 20 feet). Pete drilled some very small holes in the bottom of the gutters to let excess water drain out after he mounted them on the siding."
