Roof Gutter Replacing Gutters
The Home Wizard app calculates your ideal home care program to avoid problems with your Roof Gutters, but sometimes trouble can still occur. Here are answers to questions about roof gutter replacing gutters.
QUESTION FROM woman
The back half of my roof is large and has a pronounced slope. Is there anything in particular I should do or know about when replacing the gutters? (Our current gutters are not able to handle the quantity of water shed, but that could be due to how old they are.)

If your current gutters are not able to handle the quantity or rainwater coming off of your roof, then yes there are a number of re-design considerations that you should consider, such as location of downspouts, size of the gutters, and also, where the gutters are placed relative to the edge of your roof (which may require padding out your fascia boards).
Here is a webpage which describes these design issues, which I think you will help you:
