The Gutter Install Process

Gutters need to be installed properly to function the way they need to. If you do not have a lot of experience working with gutters you may want to contact a professional to install them for you. In this article, we are going to cover the gutter install process.

The first part of the gutter install process is the measurements. Before you can do anything else, measure along with your house where you are going to install the gutters.

The gutters should extend a couple of inches past the edge of the roof to ensure that they catch all of the water.

Once you have made the measurements you can start making any necessary cuts. When you are cutting the gutters to the correct size make sure you are using protective equipment. Gloves and eye protection may both be required.

If it is time to attach the gutters to the home, make sure you have a ladder. The ladder should be placed on solid ground so it does not move while you work on it. You are going to hammer in nails that will hold the gutter to the home. Before you finish, the gutter should be level all the way across.
