Did you know wour gutters’ performance is not solely reliant on their material and shape. If you did we’d be surprised! There are many factors that affect your gutter and downspout performance. Nelson Contracting, the premier expert in seamless gutters in Lincoln, NE, discusses some these factors below.

Gutters’ Performance

Drainage Area

This refers to the sum of the areas of each of your roof’s surface. The bigger the available space, the higher the amount of water it can handle. Not all roofs are created equal!

Roof Pitch

This will also determine the amount of rainwater it can collect. The rainwater should then be redirected to your gutters. If you have a flat roof, different gutter systems are used.

Gutter Pitch

The standard gutter pitch is a quarter-inch drop for every 10 feet. This size ensures continuous water flow, provided no other factors are involved. This may change to allow your gutter to collect more rainwater.
