All our gutters are screw fastened to the roof eaves/ rafters with a 2’’ long, corrosion resistant hex head screw and rubber grommet. We do not recommend the use of nails as fasteners. Overtime, nails have the tendency of becoming loose and will ‘back out’, away from the rafter. This process is accelerated with the accumulation of debris inside of the gutter.
The extra weight resulting from the debris and collection of rain water will cause the gutter to pull away from the roof allowing water to intrude to the underlying roof boards. This will create dry rot damages to occur.
