What is the correct distance between supports on a vinyl rain gutter?
Supports are very important when it comes to installing vinyl rain gutters. You can follow these steps that we present in this article to learn the correct distance.
First and foremost measure the gutter you have installed on your house.
Normally the supports are installed at a distance of 10 to 14 inches apart. For a smaller gutter the distance is smaller too. For hard winds and heavy rain conditions the support needed is bigger.
When you finish the installation of the supports you also have to test them. You need to see if the rain gutter is really secure or not. You also have to check it after handling a few stronger rainfalls because you might need to install more support.
So the first steps will teach you the basics in installing the supports and at what distance. After that you still need to check its resistance.
