Gutters come in all shapes and sizes, known as profiles. The most commonly installed styles of gutters are known as open gutters. These are commonly chosen because of how each separate section can be installed in varying lengths, allowing for better customization between different types of homes. These types of gutters are the most commonly installed by homeowners interested in DIY applications as well. Seamless gutters, on the other hand, will need to be installed by a professional because they are a more specialized choice.
Most gutter systems for residential areas come in two standard sizes: 5 inch and 6 inch. They may be made from any variety of durable materials such as zinc, vinyl, copper, steel or aluminum. The largest difference between many of these materials is how much they cost and how durable they are in the face of heavier workloads. In regions that deal with heavy rain and water damage, having gutters that are more durable is critical.
A typical 5 inch gutter will come with 2 by 3 inch downspouts. The larger residential gutter system would need to have 6 inch gutters with 3 by 4 inch downspouts. Sizes are usually not limited to materials, but in order for larger installations to be able to support the projected flow, stronger materials will need to be used. One foot of 5 inch gutters will be able to hold approximately 1.2 gallons of water. One foot of 6 inch gutters, on the other hand, will be able to hold as much as 2 gallons of water. Homeowners are strongly encouraged to ask about larger installations if they believe that they will need them, but systems such as box gutters, which can be made in 7 or 8 inches, are designed more for commercial use.
