8 Inch gutter installation in North Kansas City

North Kansas City Home with 8inch gutters

Installing 8 inch gutters on home in North KC with water issues.

This weeks project consisted of installing not only gutter protection on a home, but also 8 inch gutters. So why did we choose to install such large gutters for this particular home? Every home can have a different solution, in this case it was a beautiful, heavily treed home in North Kansas City. The home had overflow issues for two reasons:

  1. Clogged Gutters
  2. Insufficient downspout and gutter size to handle water volume

The home already had six inch gutters installed, however this home had clogged gutters and very large roof volume. The existing gutter system couldn’t handle moderate to heavy rain.

To remedy the situation we installed 8 inch gutter over the front entry with a 4 inch X 5 inch downspout.  (Please see the picture below with size difference).

The situation stared out as follows: “The homeowner called Gutter Cover of Kansas City to both reduce maintenance and for greater water control in a few areas of the home. The design of the front of the house, although beautiful, had a large and steep roof-line which directed all the rainfall to a relatively small section of gutter. As a result of this he had chronic overflow issues in that area. It was determined that a 6 inch gutter was not large enough to properly hold and control the water. Gutter Cover of Kansas City was able to install an 8 inch gutter, a larger size, and then protect that gutter from debris by installing The Gutter Cover. This ensured that whether a result of volume or debris this home owner would no longer have to deal with the frustrations of overflow or its resulting problems.”
