Essentially, gutters collect rainwater from the roof and channel it to the ground through a downspout. During the rain, water descends from the slope of the roof to the gutters. As water accumulates, it travels through the gutter system to the drain. The downspouts carry water from the gutters to the base of the house.
These DIY gutters come in 10-foot sections that are stitched with a special support and sealant. Half of the seam may remain on the floor before hanging each piece. The mounting brackets can also be attached to the floor.
