The first step of the process is measuring the area in which the gutters are going to be added. While taking the measurements, it's important to note how many corners there are and how far apart they are from each other. When using a ladder, be sure to have another person hold the base of the ladder so it remains secure.

The next step in the installation is to determine if you intend to install seamless gutters. Seamless gutters have no breaks in between corners which helps to prevent weak points. However, this means you will need to cut gutters to the appropriate length which can be difficult when you don't have the right equipment. Using smaller sections to cover the area is easier, but it may also lead to problems when done incorrectly.
