Advice on installing gutters on slanted fascia
 
I need to install gutters on my house to alleviate potential foundation problems and am looking for some advice. The fascia on my house is slanted--it is perpendicular to the roof instead of the ground. I'm pretty sure that it would be a less-than-ideal thing for me to install gutters flush to the fascia, because it would enable a lot of water from our Dallas downpours to flow over the gutter.

Are there some sort of special brackets that I need to use in installation to level out the gutters? If so, where would I find them? And if I have the gutters installed, will the typical installer know what to do?

Thanks!


PS - I got a quote from Guttermaxx earlier this week and was amazed that they charge close to $30 per foot for their gutters (including downspouts, installation, etc.), which would make the gutter job on my house add up to almost $6000.

You need to use a Gutter Wedge.

Here are 2 types available on this site.

And this site offers them with diagrams for installation according to the pitch of the roof.

I knew there had to be an "easy way".... Are these typically carried locally, or do they need to be purchased online?

Thanks!

You should be able to obtain them from your gutter supplier. We do not purchase gutters from the Big Box stores. We buy them from a local gutter supplier. Do a search for a local company.
Gutter suppliers can deliver seamless gutter sections, in a variety of colors, along with gutter wedges, and all the other parts needed.
