    Any of you guys ever installed gutters, I have a small job that I need to do and am thinking about doing it myself. Any advice for a first timer?

    A friend of mine (who has almost no hands on skills), did his whole house. Can't be too hard. (Coming from someone who has never even considered doing it.)

    Pretty easy really. Just need some brackets, screws, gutter sections, drill and some patience. O, and a ladder.

    Of course you'll have to give it a slight angle as to drain properly.

    They make some easy snap in guttering if you have leaves around your house.

    I did some DIY gutters one time. They ended up leaking at the joints. By the time I was done I figured it wouldn't have been much more to have it done.:smack: Probably would have got a better product too.
