"Let Tri-State Gutter keep your home's gutters flowing smoothly!"
5-inch and 6-inch Residential Gutters
What’s the difference between 5” & 6” rain gutters?:
5 - inch K-style gutters or 6 - inch K-style, the most common residential sizes, are able to handle the rainfall on most houses in most parts of the country. But house with big, steep roofs or located in climates prone to heavy downpours may need wider gutters and extra downspouts to keep rainwater from overflowing.
To figure out what size gutters you need, first, you'll need to calculate the square footage of the gutter's drainage area. For a simple gable-end roof, you would only need to make two calculations, one for each slope. Hip roofs and intersecting roofs have multiple facets, and for those, you'll need to add up the ara (length x width) of each surface within a drainage area to get the total square footage.

Aluminum gutters are the most commonly used gutters today. They come in different thicknesses and gauges such as .032, .027 and lighter. The .032 size is recommended in heavy snow regions. Aluminum gutters come in many colors, can be painted, and do not rust.
