Which Size Gutter Do I Need?

Every homeowner should have a basic knowledge of the purpose and structure of a guttering system. Gutters and downspouts divert water away from the main structure of your home, preventing water damage. When a gutter leaks, isn’t fitted correctly or becomes blocked, structural damage (both interior and exterior), soil erosion, and foundation damage can occur. Hence, why fitting your gutter correctly is very important!

When deciding which gutter is best for your home, there are a number of factors to consider, and it’s advisable to consult with a gutter professional – such as Wize Home Direct. Understanding the type of roof on your home, the climate, the location, the pitch, and the size are all important to the correct gutter selection. 

Sizing The Gutters

In order to work out what size gutters are best for your home, here is a quick guide that may help you!

Multiply the drainage area by the roof-pitch factor and rainfall intensity to find out the adjusted square footage. Then use the chart below to see what size gutter you need. (If a roof’s various drainage areas call for different size gutters, go for the biggest one).
