Installing Gutter Liners


A gutter liner is a tough synthetic material that can be used to repair small holes and to prolong the life of your gutters. It installs easily. However, if you are doing a long section of gutter, you'll need some time to move ladders and get yourself into position. Always work carefully.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

SKILL SCALE
Easy

TIME REQUIRED
Depending on the length of the installation, figure about half an hour for every 15 feet.

TOOLS
Scissors
Caulk gun

MATERIALS
Gutter liner
Adhesive caulk

Cut a section of gutter liner material to the desired length (cut it long enough to fill the entire run, if possible). For narrow gutters, you'll need to trim the liner to the proper width as well. Slip the liner below the hangers, forming a continuous trough.

 

 

 

Attach downspout adapters and end caps or corner pieces, following the manufacturer's instructions. Connections are usually made with a special adhesive/caulk that the manufacturer provides with the liner.
