Important Tips on DIY Gutter Installation in Waco, TX

Avoid metal strapping

For most residential homes, there’s no reason to use metal strapping to hold your gutters in place.  Metal strapping is heavier than other options and may place unnecessary strain on the attachment points.  Also, metal can more easily damage roof or siding surfaces, particularly if they’re also metal.

Stick to softer, lighter materials.  As long as you have enough strapping, each individual strap doesn’t need to be particularly strong.

Determining how many straps you need

So how much strapping is necessary?  As a quick rule of thumb, you’ll need about as many straps as you have rafter tails underneath the eaves of your roofing.

However, this doesn’t always provide sufficient straps.  In general, each strap should be spaced about two feet apart, so that no one strap is holding up too much weight on its own.  Plan accordingly.

Seamless versus standard gutters

If you’re looking at doing your own gutter installation, you’ll probably be purchasing the gutters yourself as well.  This means you’ll have to cut the gutters to fit your home, and there will be seams or drops between the individual segments.

This will be less effective than using seamless gutters from a specialty shop.  Seamless gutters can be custom cut to fit the contours of your home while providing more reliable service.

Make sure to use long screws

When attaching the strapping to your roof, you’ll want screws that are longer than usual.  The screws are what will really be supporting the gutter’s weight, so they need plenty of length and surface area to grab onto.  Make them as long as possible, without drilling into the inner wall material.

    Aqua Werx Seamless Gutters installed gutters on our home. I do not understand how Aqua Werx gutters receives 5 stars from so many customers. Five stars indicates near perfection on almost every aspect from quality to responsiveness. On almost all things, they are just mediocre. Their quality is definitely not close to perfect. I am not sure if we just got unlucky and caught them on a bad day, or other reviewers don’t pay attention to the details. On quick look, the gutters look fine, but the devil is definitely in the details. ... read more
