Robert T. Residence, Bloomfield Hills, MI
6″ CopperShoppe Deep Half Round Copper Gutter (20 oz. Copper) Installation.
4″ European Downspouts (18 oz. Copper) – Funnelets (over size Outlets) and AutoClears. Gutters Installed with 1-1/4″ by 3/16″ Custom Gutter Brackets for 7 Degree Cant Fascia.
Gutters Before CopperShoppe Installation
The 6″ Gutter and the Brackets (Berger Brothers Manufactured)
were bowed downward from Ice and Snow Load.
Additionally since the Gutter Fascia was on a 7 degree angle – the gutter angle was further compromised for an overflow. This plus the undersized downspouts caused the gutter to over flow constantly during only medium volume rains. This Gutter (30′ Long) actually has to handle a quadruple load of water as there are double inside corners on the roof line above (which drains into this gutter) plus the water and ice coming off the glass enclosure (approximately 450 sq. ft.). This is a lot of volume when you add it all together! This installation was a bit more difficult than a standard installation because the gutter had to be assembled and installed between the glass enclosure and the building structure. Actually tighter than it looks.
