What are the best gutter hangers?

Hidden Hangers. Most professionals consider them as the best kind of fasteners for rain gutters. Installers place hidden hangers horizontally inside the gutter and screw them into the fascia board. They don’t only look more appealing than other types of hangers, but they also offer better support to gutter systems.

How do hidden gutter hangers work?

They are basically a gutter bracket that clips to the inside of the gutter and screws directly into the fascia board with a steel threaded screw. The name “hidden hanger” comes from the fact that you can’t see the brackets from the ground because they no longer pierce the gutter face like traditional gutter spikes did.
