Importance Of Gutter Hangers
Gutter hangers provide a popular way to fasten a gutter system to the fascia. They also provide support and strength to the gutters. Just like the name suggests, gutter hangers are not easy to see while standing on the ground. That’s because the front part of the gutter hanger clips onto the lip of the gutter’s front part. The back of the gutter hanger rests flush against or clips to the back side of a gutter. During installation, a hole is screwed through the hanger, then into the gutter, and the fascia board.
Gutter hangers are very important in areas that receive moderate or heavy snow fall every year. When snow is packed on the roof, there is a strong downward force on the gutters as well as the mounting system. That’s why some gutters buckle under this weight. Gutter hangers provide support to the gutter system thereby enabling it to resist twisting and bending that may be caused by heavy snow or water. Essentially, hangers are the brackets that provide support and strength to your gutter system. Spacing and type of gutter hangers that you use will largely determine the strength and longevity of your gutter system.
