|Gutter Hanger Spacing||Gutter Position||Gutter Sizing|
|GUTTER HANGER SELECTIONIn deciding which hanger style is most acceptable, please consider such things as appearance, expected life, ice loading, size of a gutter or gutters, material and expansion. When fascia board is less than 2″ thick, the hanger fasteners must be driven into the rafter ends.
In areas subject to snow slide, coordinate the front edge elevation of the gutter or gutters with the extended roof line.
|RECOMMENDED GUTTER PITCH AND POSITION ON THE EAVEThere are two factors that go into determining gutter position on the eave, the pitch of the gutter and the roof slope.
Gutter should be pitched 1/16″ or greater per foot for proper drainage. Gutter can be run level for appearance but addition downspout will be necessary
Gutters should be placed below the extended roof line so that snow and ice can slide clear. Steeper pitches require less clearance.
