HOW TO INSTALL GUTTERS – A DIY GUIDE

Comments 36

  1. So, I used this video as a guide to do some gutters (just the start, much more to go). I put up about 80' of gutter, and it went better than might have been expected for a first-timer… lol.

    I will say that doing more than 2 lengths of gutter is just too much weight, and they will sag and bend when you try to put them up. I was able to repair them easily enough, but only because I did come up with an idea that worked pretty well if you don't have any help: I have a metal roof, and drilled some small holes on the upper portion of the ribs to attach short bungee cords, so that the gutter literally hung less than a foot below the level it was going to be attached to the house. I screwed in the hanger near the bungee cord, then worked it out, and went to the next. At that point, I went back and screwed in the rest of the hangers. I did have one joint that leaked a little (one that I had to redo because it sagged so much the rivets popped); other than that, it came out leak-free, and once I got the hang of the rivets, they looked pretty good. As I continue, I will join two sections at a time, then drill the holes to join them together, but do that once they're hanging.

    It was a bit of a hassle that the gutters didn't always line up very well, with some notable gaps even after really fighting to get it as tight as possible. I used plenty of gutter caulking in the apx 4" overlap, so there wasn't leaks, but it was a bit of a surprise; I thought it would have been easier than it was in that regard. I also found that snips are more of a pain than anything else to use on this; mine at least tore up the gutters, so I went with using an angle grinder, which made some really clean cuts. Overall, though, taking my time and trying to follow the info here made it much easier than just winging it on my own, and cheaper than paying someone else to do it (since I have another 200+ feet to go!).

  2. WOW. Went into this thinking how good can it be at < 7 minutes. Well, pretty f-bomb'n good. Straight into it with no fluff. YouTube needs more to follow this model!

  3. I have watched several how to install gutter videos this morning and yours is by far the best. Using a cut off wheel sure beats a hack saw or Sawzall like I see on other videos. And overlapping at the splices seems much stronger than the little splice joints. Thanks for a great video!
