You can pay for the most expensive type of gutters there is but if they don’t fit your home right, it’ll be your money down the drain at the end of the day. Here are some notes from gutter installation and roof replacement expert, ReNew Home Designs, that may help you understand how the right gutter sizing can be achieved for your home.
Style and Materials
Gutters come in different styles and materials. Sizing can be affected by both so it’s important for you to decide, first, what type of gutters you want and what they’ll be made of too. You can choose aluminum gutters if you want a budget-friendly option. Steel costs slightly more but can last for up to 25 years with proper care. If you can stretch your budget a bit further and want a more visually appealing choice too, match your roof with copper gutters.
Perimeter and Drainage Measurement
The measurement of your roof’s fascia is a good indicator of how much gutter you might need. Some allowances need to be made, however, to cover corners as well as how many downspouts you’ll have installed. Professional roofers like ReNew Home Designs know this. Additionally, the width of the gutters themselves should be proportionate to the amount of water it might need to drain, based on how big of a drainage area each side of your roof has.
Allow your contractor to do their job and listen to any gutter sizing advice they may give you. As long as you know that you have a contractor you can trust, you can rely on their experience to determine what type and how big of a gutter system will work best for your home.
