Three Rules For A Proper Installation
- START 6 INCHES. Install the first hanger 6 inches from the end of the gutter or miter.
- SPACE 2 FEET. Hook the hangers into the lip of the gutter no more than every 24 inches. In areas prone to snow fall, hanger placement can be as little as 12 inches apart.
- DRILL TIGHT.

Rain gutters are positioned to extend just beyond the eaves of a roof to collect rain and hail runoff. They are placed on all sides of a home along the roof edge.
Do you install drip edge before fascia?
The correct placement of a roof drip edge is on top of the roof’s exterior cover directly between the sheathing and the fascia board, which forms a drainage gap between the drip edge and the fascia board. As a result, the drainage improves water flow and protects the roof from potential water damage.
Should there be a gap between gutter and fascia?
The best installation method is to leave a gap between the drip edge and the fascia board, about the width of a finger. The shingles should also overhang the drip edge 3⁄8 to 1/2 an inch.
