STEP BY STEP - the process of gutters installation

Snapping layout lines

Stanley’s team will determine the highest point of the gutter run in the fascia, which is located at the bottom of the flashing; as well as the lowest point of the gutter run.

1

Attaching fascia brackets

The team will locate the rafter tails behind the fascia to make a mark on the chalk line of the other rafter tails. Later, they will make holes through the fascia and towards the rafter of each mark to place the brackets that will hold it.

2

Sawing gutter to length

Our contractors will then proceed to cut the gutter section to length with hacksaws and aviation snips.

3

Attaching end caps

At the square-cut end of the gutter, contractors will proceed to attach a layer of spherical end with aluminum pop rivets. Later, they will seal these rivets and the end-cap seam inside the gutter with a silicone caulk in order to provide a watertight capacity to the joint.

4

Cutting downspout holes

Contractors will proceed to use a downspout outlet to mark the location of the downspout on the lower end of the gutter and then drill a hole for installation.

5

Installing gutter

Later, they will proceed to place the gutter on the brackets that were screwed into the fascia and secure the gutter to the bracket with stainless steel screws and flanged nuts.

6

Forming strip-miter joint at corner

The experts will then cover the joint between the two gutter lengths at each end with a strip miter and wrap the aluminum strip around the underside of the gutter. Besides, a siliconized caulk will be added to increase its waterproofing.

7

Connecting downspout to gutter

Lastly, our contractors will secure the downspout outlet to the gutter and screw an elbow downspout to the outlet tube coming from the gutter. Then, they will proceed to fasten all the parts and check if everything is installed correctly.
