Gutter tips


Imagine a heavy downpour: rain pounds your roof and torrents spill over the eaves. You can't reach the front door without passing beneath a mini-Niagara.

And the basement? Better fire up the sump pump. Get the idea? Before that next storm arrives, it may be a good idea to consider how your house will weather it. This brings us to the subject of gutters.

Granted, gutters aren't exactly glamorous. But they handle a critical task: routing the runoff from a very large surface--your roof--to proper drainage away from the house. By doing this, they keep your house high and dry, protecting siding, windows, doors and foundation from water damage.

Though most gutters are installed on existing roofs, adding them during reroofing simplifies installation and allows them to be fully integrated into the roof system. If you're thinking about installing a new roof, your timing couldn't be better.

Of course, gutters aren't necessary for every house or every roof slope. Broad overhangs may cast runoff well away from the house, where proper grading and drainage can carry it away. If this is the case with your house, save your money for a different type of rainy day.

Rain gutter sizes and profiles

Gutters are formed in several profiles and sizes. The standard profiles are a simple "half round" shape and a "K" style, which has a ogee-shaped front, vaguely reminiscent of the letter "K."

Channels are 5 or 6 inches in diameter; 5-inch K-style gutters are a popular type. Matching downspouts are 2 by 3-inch or 3 by 4-inch rectangular profiles or 3 or 4-inch round pipes for half round gutters.

The larger systems are generally worth the difference in price because they're less likely to clog. If trees overhang your house, 3 by 4-inch downspouts are a good idea.

Gutter mounting systems

Gutters are attached along a house's eaves by any of several types of straps, brackets and hangers, as shown in the illustration at top.

The hidden hanger method is best because of cost and the fact that over the years, as the wood gets a little older, spikes [of a spike-and-ferrule hanger] tend to pull out.
