Hanging Gutters on Angled Fascia

Angled fascias can complicate things to get do-it-yourself gutter contractors. One typical solution is to use roof hangers, and you ought to choose hangers with sturdy rods, instead of elastic straps. Don’t nail through the shingles, which makes a leak. Increase asphalt shingles and secure the hangers under them. Another technique, particularly good for slate, will be to nail into the hangers through the slots between the shingles. Slide a 4-inch-wide sheet metal bib below the shake to cover the nail hole. Make the bib long enough so that it goes 2 inches under the nail and 2 inches under the second overlapping course.
