Instructions for preparing the installation of gutters
The role of the guttering system is to divert the water safely away from your roof, walls and house foundation. A very important thing if you want your system to run efficiently is the process of installation.
First, you will have to make notes and drawing for the existing system.
You will need to pay attention when you will measure the distance between shingles and gutters if you want to avoid overflow and flooding. Make sure that you measure the distances in that way water will be collected by the gutters and not flow over the top. You will have to mark using a chalk line the place of gutters and downspouts and remember that you will need to create a slope of about ½ inch to every 16 feet of gutter.
Then, you will have to cut the pieces of gutter and join them together by 2 inch at least. Remember that they come in 10 feet lengths and count the number of brackets you will need to use. You will need to install two brackets at each end of the gutter and then to every 16 inches away. You can nail or screw them into the trim board.
Make a final check to see if the new pieces are lined up well with the existing marks and now you can start the process of installation.
