How To Measure Gutters

What you’ll need:

  • Tape measure (we recommend 50’ long, but any will do)

  • Pencil

  • Note pad

How to measure:

Step 1: Where do you want gutters?

Look at your roof and determine where you want gutters.  Gutters are always at the eave edge of a roof.  (Where the roof runs horizontally.) 

Step 2: Measure where you want the gutters to run.

Measuring along the ground, estimating where the gutters will be on the roof is the best idea.  Some people hook the tape measure on the side of the house for these measurements.  Mark 1st floor, 2nd floor and 3rd floor measurements. 

Step 3: Evaluate your downspouts.

Downspouts occur about every 20-30 feet for small downspouts and 30-40 feet for large downspouts.  If you need/want the large ones, keep it constant throughout the house.  Downspouts should run down hill, and try (you can't always) to avoid walkways and driveways. Corners

Step 4: Count any corners you may need.

If your gutter bends or changes direction, that would be a corner you need to note.
