If you need to replace your gutters and you're wondering what size you need to get, there is no standard size for residential gutters. A 5 inch gutter system is sufficient for the majority of residential homes. Although it does depend upon where you live and the size and style of your property.
Factors Affecting Gutter Size
Before deciding upon a gutter system, the size and style of house has to be considered as well as the roof pitch, how many trees are in the given vicinity and other factors that can influence which size and style of gutters can be used.. Gutter sizes and styles can vary and also how many downspouts that will be needed. It is not unusual for us to install seamless 5 inch gutters and seamless "oversized" 6 inch gutters on the same home.
More Rain, More Gutters
An important factor that has to be considered is the amount of rainfall when designing your gutter system. It needs to be able to handle the volume of rainfall therefore a gutter system can vary. A custom solution is not uncommon to meet a home's gutter needs.
