Do not drive the spikes all the way. Proceed along the gutter in two foot incremental spaces until reaching the opposite end of the gutter. Get down off your ladder and look at the gutter. Does it tip ever so slightly towards the downspout hole? If it is really noticeable it may be too much tilt. Now is the time to adjust the gutter slope before you drive the spikes completely into the wood. If you are happy with the gutter go ahead and drive the spikes flush with the gutter but do not compress the gutter or ferrules.
How to Install Gutters Gutters come in several different sizes although most people never notice. You may have become accustomed to seeing white and brown gutters on homes but in fact many custom colors are available today. I built a Marine barracks in New York that required all red trims. Louvers vents fascias and soffit materials and yes even the gutters and downspouts were a matching red color. As with window units there are dozens of custom colors to choose from today. Almost all residential applications use a four inch by four inch wide standard gutter and three inch downspouts or leaders.
Water will follow the contour and run downward into what would be the gutter. But what would happen it you place some wet leaves on top of the gutter cover?. If you dont have leaves use a dollar bill as it will mimic a wet leaf and will move slowly to the fin and instead of dropping off the fin watch it follow the fin downward with the water into what would be the gutter. Youll notice that this type of gutter guard will pass full sized leaves along with most of the tiny buds and blossoms in the spring time. No doubt about the fin type of gutter being self cleaning.
Why? Answer: There are several reasons: 1. Not all gutter cleaners do a good job. Rosemary paid $75 to have her gutters cleaned and just three days later they overflowed. Did the contractor do a bad job or did enough leaves fall to clog the downspout? Answer: No way to tell. 2. The fellow Joe hired to clean his gutters didnt have any insurance. Big problem! Unfortunately there was an accident with the ladder and the fellow sued Joe; and Joe went through a nightmare the fellows doctors and Joes own insurance company.
