Installing Gutters

Professional gutter installers can easily handle the more complex rooflines of some homes.

The pitch of your roof, the number of cut-outs you have, (gables, dormers, and perpendicular roof lines), and the type of material covering your roof, all affect the selection of gutters for your home. An experienced do-it-yourselfer may be able to install gutters and slope them correctly to downspouts when they are going on a ranch style house with two or three straight runs of guttering.

However, it is wise to consult a contractor if your house roofline is more complex, or if you have tiles or shakes covering your roof. Also, only a contractor can install seamless gutters, not sectional gutters pieces which are vulnerable to leaking at the seams.
