Help With Gutter Hanger


I am putting up gutters but my facia board is angled so gutter will slope inward with a normal hanger. could anyone please let me know what my options are and where I might find these type of hangers. I live in the Mpls MN area

Help With Gutter Hanger


They sell gutter wedges which are made in various angles, depending on how far the fascia board is slanted back.

The fastener for each gutter hanger also penetrates through the pilot hole of the top of the wedge and allows the gutter to wind up plumb.

I am sure I posted links on this forum before, so I will do a search.

Help With Gutter Hanger


Thanks Ed. If i understand then these wedges would go behind the gutters, against the facia board and the gutters would rest on the wedge every 24 inchs. I would think that they would show some from the bottom, but they only come in White?

I have used Brown and Black also.

Did those sites only carry them in white?

Yes, they should be spaced "No Farther" than 24" on center. You should try to anchor all of the gutter hanger fasteners into the tail end of the rafter, so if your rafters are 16" O.C., then you should set them at 16" apart.

The first site only had white. the other sites wedges had brown and you cut them depending on the angle. The 16inchs apart is a good idea thanks. That is as long as I can find rafters. I suppose just measure from the edge of house then 16 inchs on center. thanks for your help.

If the fascia is not already clad with aluminum, you can find the rafter tails by looking for the nail heads that secured the fascia board to them. Even if they are painted and seem sealed, you will still notice them if you look with a keen eye and then just fo and mark them with a carpenters pencil.

It`s important that you don`t pitch the gutter too far back,and create another problem with backup
