How To Install Your Own Gutters

How To Install Your Own GuttersThe gutters are an important protective system for your home. It keeps water from penetrating the foundation and leaking into your house. If you have some DIY experience, you can install your gutters yourself. However, it’s important to know that if gutters are improperly installed, it can render the entire system useless and may even cause more disadvantages than benefits.

  • Gutter sizing – To calculate gutter size, you’ll need to know the square footage and slope of your roof, as well as your city’s rainfall intensity.
  • Downspout positioning – Position the downspouts near corners when possible and ensure that no single downspout covers more than 20 linear feet of gutter.
  • Snap a chalk line – Place one end of a chalked line where the gutter’s high point will be on your fascia boards, then have a helper run the line to where the downspout will go. Measure down from your roof edge to ensure that the downspout end of the line is a quarter inch below the top end of the line for every 20 feet of gutter run.
  • From the ground up – Before attaching the sections of gutter to your fascia board, lay out the entire run on your lawn. It should make it easier to cut the pieces to length, cut out the downspout holes and install the downspout connector.
  • Tight seals – Once you have sealed two gutter pieces together, or sealed the downspout connector into place, give the sealant some time to dry and then check the seal with a jug of water.
