    How to Install Gutters


    It is worthwhile noting that there are copious stores selling gutters that have been specifically designed to make your installation work easy. However, you need to acquaint yourself with information on how to install gutters

    Getting this information is important because it will help you put together gutters and downspouts that are strong and attractive. The following are some of the important considerations you need to make whenever you are installing your gutters.

    Steps to Follow When Installing Gutters

    Installing your gutters alone will save you significantly since you won’t have to hire a professional gutter installer. However, there are several pitfalls you need to look out for. For instance, the installing process might take longer than when it is done by a professional. You may also lack the necessary tools and expertise to complete the task fast and effectively. A professional installer on the other hand knows how to make the task easier and fast. Nonetheless, there are several important steps you need to follow. 

    How to Install Gutters

    • Examine the fascia & soffit: It is always good to check the fascia and soffit since they might be rotted and make your installation ineffective. If there is any rotted wood, make sure that it is restored before you start installing your gutters. And if your house has a crown molding fitted on the fascia, remove it to get a flat wood plane. In any case, it is important to start by painting any bare wood. 

    • Measure the house and design a sketch: Before you start installing your gutters, you need to measure the surface on which you intend to set them up. Then measure the downspouts and ensure that each has the right elbows. A good downspout should at least have the front elbows. At times you may be required to install the side elbows to twist the downspout porch sideways.  
    • Preassemble your gutters: It is easier to assemble the gutters first on the floor than bring them together from a ladder. When you are assembling your gutters, it is important to follow the instructions provided by the seller. Make sure that all joints have been joined together firmly using rivets and caulks. You can then set the gutters up on the fascia board using nails. You should ask the manufacturer to provide you with a guide on how to install gutters
