When it’s time to install gutters, you should know every step of the process. If you don’t feel like this is a project that you can tackle on your own, it’s best to find a gutter company that can do it for you. In this article, we are going to discuss what you need to know to install gutters.
The first part of the process is measuring. You will need to use a ladder to measure how much space you have along the roof. Take these measurements and make the proper cuts to the gutters. It’s best if the gutters hang a couple of inches over the edge of the roof so that they collect all of the water that comes off.
Once your gutter is the proper length you will need to add additional holes for the downspouts. The downspouts are the tunnels that the water travels down after it collects in the gutters.
To install the gutters onto the roof you will need to first place brackets so that they have something to hold them up. You can screw the gutters on the brackets and after that the project is complete. Before you finish, make sure that the gutters are stable.
