In respect to this, how do you make your own gutters?
Here are a few planning tips:
- Locate downspouts in unobstructed areas where water can be directed away from the house.
- Place downspouts in inconspicuous locations if possible.
- Install oversized 3 x 4-in.
- Slope long gutter runs (40 ft. or more) down both directions from the middle and put a downspout on each end.
Beside above, what do gutters attach to? Gutters attach to the eaves two ways: to the fascia—the boards that cover rafter ends—or to the roof.

How do I cut gutters?
Cut gutter section to length with hacksaw and aviation snips, or with a 12-inch power miter saw fitted with a carbide-tipped finish blade (as shown). If the gutter continues around a corner, cut the appropriate angle (typically 45 degrees) on that end.
