There are a number of factors that affect how much water the gutters of a residential roofing system can handle at any given time. For example, an inch of rainfall might not sound like much, but if this downpour happens within 30 minutes or less, most standard-size gutters will overflow and flood. Another factor is the size and capacity of the gutters and downspouts themselves.
When it comes to gutter installation, you don’t only need to consider the material, color and style, but also the kind of fasteners that will be used for the system. Fasteners secure gutters onto your home, and they are essential to the functionality of your drainage system.
