How to install vinyl gutters (Page 2)


Step 5. Use a hacksaw to cut gutter sections to fit between outlets and corners. Attach the end caps and connect the gutter sections to the outlets. Cut and test-fit gutter sections to fit between outlets, allowing for expansion gaps.

 

Step 6. Join the gutter sections together, using connectors. Attach gutter hangers to the gutter (for models with support clips mounted on the fascia). Hang the gutters, connecting them to the outlets.

 

Step 7. Cut a section of drain pipe to fit between two downspout elbows. One elbow should fit over the tail of the downspout outlet and the other should fit against the wall. Assemble the parts, slip the top elbow onto the outlet, and secure the other to the siding with a drain pipe hanger.

 

Step 8. Cut a piece of drain pipe to fit between the elbow at the top of the wall and the end of the drain pipe run, staying at least 12 above the ground. Attach an elbow, and secure the pipe to the wall with a drain pipe hanger. Add accessories, such as splash blocks, to help channel water away from the house (inset).
