A gutter is a very important part of a roof system. Most people know little about gutters other than they force water away from the roof. Having the right size gutter is essential to ensure that you get the value you need from your gutter system.

The presenter goes over this type of system because it is the most common system. It is installed in most homes. There are two different sizes within this range.
