When it comes to gutter installation, there are factors that influence how well the system can perform its job. One of these is the slope of the rain gutters. If you’re thinking about installing a new home gutter system near Houston, TX, then watch this video to learn about recommended slopes.

To help ensure that water flows through your rain gutters as intended, they should be installed at a slope of 1/16 th of an inch per foot. To determine the right height for each end of your gutters, measure the length of one side of your home and then multiply this by 1/16 th. This number will tell you how much of a drop is needed between one end of the gutters to the other.
