In this guide, you will learn How to Install Seamless Gutters the right way. If you are planning on installing seamless gutters yourself (which I highly DO NOT recommend because of safety concerns), it’s always good to be safe than sorry, so below I will have a list of items that you will need before performing a seamless gutter installation.
Tools & Equipment Needed
Now before you get into installing Seamless Gutters there are a few things you need before you install Seamless Gutters:
- Tall Extended Ladder
- Hacksaw or Gutter
- Measuring Tape
- End Caps
- Drill Gun
- Gutter Flashing
- Gutter Caulk or Sealant
1) Have your Seamless Gutter ready and place your ladder against the roof
Before you can do anything, you need Seamless Gutters of course and it needs to be made correctly before installing.
When placing your ladder, make sure it’s straight and the foots of the ladder are in a good position to hold you so that you don’t fall.
2) Make sure your fascia is not damaged
This is very important because if it’s rotted or damaged, gutters can fall off and get destroyed, so it’s best to replace them if it’s damaged or rotted.
3) Measure the amount of gutter you want to make sure it matches the length of the fascia.
The fascia is what’s going to be holding the gutters, so make sure your gutters match the length of the side before installing.
4) Cut hole for downspout
Now you do want to cut a hole the end of the gutters or wherever you like to insert your downspout.
5) Pre-drill Holes
Pre-drill your holes so that it will make it easier for you stall them, a good rule of thumb is through every two feet.
5) Go up Ladder and Install
Go Up the Ladder and Set up the Gutter and make it level & straight then attach your gutter hangers to keep your gutters in place and then you attach your downspouts.
