Most of the time, standard 5-inch gutters are enough to catch and channel out the rainwater coming down your roof. However, there are special cases where 6-inch gutters function better. When it comes to gutter sizing, even an inch can make a significant difference to the appearance, draining ability and maintenance of your gutter system.
Weather is affecting your gutters constantly. High-speed winds, heavy rainfall, hail, snow, and ice can all create serious, often non-repairable damage to your roof’s drainage system. Therefore, after every severe weather occurrence, a thorough roof inspection is required. Your gutters can be the most hard-hit victim of storm damage around your house without you realizing it. This means your gutters can take the brunt of the wind’s force.
