Residential Gutter Installations
This gallery features our 6-inch K-Style Gutters
This includes shingle and tile homes. However, please note that tile homes can only have a 6-inch gutter system if the metal or tile roof does not exceed a 1-inch to 1 1/2-inch overhang. Otherwise, it would require a 7-inch Gutter. The 6-inch Gutters were made because the lack of efficiency and water-volume a 5-inch Gutter can handle.
Downspouts, or Leader heads, are placed for approximately every 35 feet of Gutter. The reason for this is because of the amount of water-volume that comes off the roof would be too much on a larger run of gutter. Thus, the reason for overflowing gutters, leaks and repairs. Another reason for repairs is an improperly pitched gutter. If a gutter is not leveled, the water will flow back or away from the downspout. This results in overflowing in corners and endcaps. Downspouts can be placed different locations, but keep in mind not every home is alike.
