Instruction about cutting K-Style gutters
The most common gutter style use in houses is the K style gutter. This style is represented with a flat side that lies on the side of the house. Therefore the installation process is much simple.
First find out how much gutter you will need by measuring the part of the roof where you will want to install the gutter. You can do this easy by using masking tape. If you don’t know how to use the masking tape, you should know that it must be placed so that it is centered on the line you will cut on. It should be placed on the inside and outside of the gutter. The edges won’t fray when you will cut the metal.
You must have the necessary tools when you decide to cut K style gutters. You need very sharp tin snips. If the snips aren’t sharp enough, the metal will bend with the cut, making it very difficult to fit the K style gutters.
Try to make short and precise cuts, don’t rush into cutting the entire gutter at once.
