The gutter hanger installation process includes brackets that snap into the front and back of the gutter and are then screwed into the fascia under the drip edge flashing with nails spaced about 2ft apart. For standard gutter installations, gutter hangers, sometimes called hidden hangers, should be installed no further than 36 inches away from each other. We do every 24 inches for extra support for those rainy days. In the colder climates, you may encounter heavy ice and snow loads in the gutter. This extra weight will require hangers every 12 to 18 inches.
Standard residential homes typically use K style aluminum gutters, 5 or 6 inches wide from side to side, but if you live in a particularly rainy climate or looking for a different style gutter, other choices are available like ½ round aluminum gutter. But plan ahead in your construction to use as few welds as possible. Over time, the material in gutters, especially at the seams, is subjected to extreme temperature, force, and, of course, water. We make sure that the gutters are level and fit your needs. Our team of professionals is there to help you every step of the way.
Hidden Hangers are the most popular method of fastening the gutter to the fascia and give the gutter its strength and support. As the name implies, these hangers are hidden from the ground. Gutters may look perfectly even, but it’s a carefully crafted illusion. Gutters actually have a slight pitch that allows water to flow towards the downspouts, generally one to two inches of decline for every forty feet of length. Gutters are usually made up of aluminum but can also be made up from copper, stainlees steel, and galvalume. The type of hanger used and its spacing will largely determine the longevity of the gutter system. When cutting aluminum gutters we are sure to use a blade with many teeth. This makes a very crsip and square cut. We wear goggles and all safety gear required while cutting gutters.
