Gutter installation isn’t a job that’s well-suited to DIYers and amateurs. First, your gutters are one of the most important parts of your home’s water management system. Mistakes during the installation can cause costly water damage. Second, there are many complex factors that should be considered during the installation. Gutter Helmet® of Minnesota, the top installer of gutter protection products in our area, discusses these factors.

Gutter Hanger Placement

For warm climates, the gutter hangers need to be close to the center of the gutter and at a spacing of no more than three feet apart from the center. For colder climates, the hangers need to be spaced so that the gutters can carry the extra weight of snow and ice. This requires gutter hangers no more than 18 inches apart. Proper spacing will reduce the risk of the gutters sagging.

Slope

The gutters should gently slope downwards to end at the downspout. The incline needs to be approximately one inch for every sixteen feet. This gentle incline is enough to make sure that the rain flows smoothly toward the downspout.

Material

There are a wide range of gutter materials available, each with its own distinct benefits and drawbacks. As a professional gutter company, we can help you choose the best gutter material for your specific needs and budget.
