The way roof gutters work is the water rolls down the roof, goes into the gutter, and is then channeled down to the ground. The point of roof gutters is to get the rain water away from your house so that it is protected. Roof gutters often times get clogged with debris such as leaves and sticks. If this happens, the rain water cannot flow through the gutter and will form a pool and spill out onto the house. This can be damaging to the basement of the house if there is a lot of rain. You should also inspect your roof gutter when you are cleaning them so that there are no cracks and leaks.
It is very important that the owner of your home knows how to maintain the roof gutters and it is good to know how to install them. You will need to know at what angle the roof slopes down and then draw a line to use as a reference. You will then need a measuring tape to measure the length you want the roof gutters to be. Then you just cut the gutter at the length you desire it to be. Then the next step is attaching the roof gutters onto the roof. You can attach hanging brackets along the roof and then attach the gutters on the brackets. The last step is to install the downspout of the gutter system. You will need to draw an outline for the hole and then cut it out by using a drill. You will then use a silicone tube to attach to the opening. This tube is used so that leaks do not happen. You will then attach the two pieces together and cut the downspout to the right size. You will take the end caps and connect them to the silicone part of the drain. When this is finished, you can then use the downspout. When the downspout id connected to the roof gutters, they will work together to prevent rainwater from flooding around the house.
