  3. Cut the fascia board along the marked lines. You will need to use a saw to make the cuts.
  4. Install the gutter hangers on the fascia board. The hangers should be spaced evenly along the length of the gutter.

What is the proper way to install gutter guards?

  1. Make sure your gutters are clean before you start. Any debris or build-up on your gutters will make it more difficult to install the guards and could cause them to eventually fail.
  2. Measure twice, cut once. This is especially important if you are cutting the gutter guards to fit your gutters. A precise measurement will help ensure a proper fit and prevent any gaps that could allow debris to enter your gutters.
  3. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions. This may seem like a no-brainer, but it’s important to read and follow the directions that come with your gutter guards. Every type of guard is slightly different, and failure to follow the instructions could result in a sub-par installation.
  4. Use the proper tools. Again, this may seem like common sense, but using the wrong tools for the job can make it much more difficult to install gutter guards properly. Make sure you have the right screws, nails, or other fasteners for the type of guard you are using.
