The two most common ways of installing gutters is with hangers or spikes and ferrules.
To figure out how many are needed, add up the gutter footage and divide it by 2.
This will give you enough fasteners to install the gutters.
It never hurts to get an extra one or two fasteners for each piece of gutter installed.
End caps: There are two types of end caps, right and left. They are determined by looking at the face of the gutter. Most gutters have one on each end unless you leave one off so water can drain to a lower roof.
Downspouts: Down spouts come in 10’ sections, you need one for a single story and two for a two story. There is usually enough left over to make the return for the top of the spout. Do not forget to get an outlet and straps for each down spout.
Elbows: There are three main types of elbows. There type “A”, “B and offset (also known as ledge jumpers). Please look at the product page to see what they look like and determine what you need for each spout.
Valley shields: This is a piece of metal that is placed on the top face side of the gutter to prevent the water from overflowing in the high water volume areas.
Caulk: One tube will work for ten end caps or three miters.
Rivets & screws: We have colored rivets and screws to match the gutters and down spouts. You need approximately ten for each spout our miter.
Touch up paint: One can is good to have in case your gutter or spouts get scratched during installation.
