6″ Oversized Seamless Gutters
When installing 6″ gutters, we use 3×4″ oversized downspouts as well, allowing more water and debris to flow freely through the system. Our gutters are available in several colors but we can often match colors outside of our regular swatches if needed.
We have seen an incredible increase in our number of 6″ seamless gutter installs over the past few years. We have even encountered many straight ranch, cape, and colonial homeowners interested in the larger sized 6″ gutters. Their smaller 5″ seamless gutters seem to overflow with heavy rain easier.
6″ gutters may be also used in the following residential housing circumstances:
- Gutter lengths over 40’ that cannot have 2 downspouts
- Lower gutters that have upper gutters draining into them
- Long runs over 60’
- Rooflines with tremendous amounts of water concentrating to a small portion of gutter.
- Inside valleys where the water is flowing at great speed, and typically overflows during heavy rains.

The Gutter Installation ProcessAs an experienced and credible contractor in this field, we know what it takes to install good gutter systems on your roof. We follow a very methodical work process in every project:
- Our experts will survey the roofline.
- They will then take detailed and accurate measurements. This is required to get a clear idea of the square footage of your roof.
- With this information, they will calculate roughly how much water would need to be effectively channeled away after stormy weather.
- Using other information available to us, they are able to see what is the average rainfall in your area.
- This helps them design & install gutter systems that don’t fail.
Choosing The Right Sized GutterIn addition to the work process mentioned above, choosing the right sized gutter is another important aspect we take into consideration. As a thumb rule, 5″ gutters are acceptable for most residential settings. However, if your home has a very steep, large roof or if your area experiences above average amounts of rainfall, or stormy weather, a 6” seamless gutter is a better choice. Here are some facts about these features:
- 6-inch gutters are very commonly used on larger-sized homes, garages, pole sheds and commercial buildings.
- These 6-inch gutters will be paired with 3” x 4” downspouts. Larger installations will displace larger quantities of water quickly; it makes them an excellent system for wider roof spans.
- If you want optimum performance from your gutter system 6″ gutters in combination with 3″x 4″ downspouts would be able to handle about 50% more water than standard 5″ seamless gutters.
- This substantially decreases the chances of overflow from your gutters even during heavy windblown downpours.
- We also consider the weight of the 6″ gutter systems when they are full! Some of the fascia boards aren’t mounted securely enough to support 6″ gutters full of rainwater; that can cause them to be ripped off the home.
Custom 6-Inch Gutter Design ServicesIn short, there is a lot of science and mathematics involved in calculating the right size for your gutters. Installing them well takes considerable skill too. If your roof has a complex design with sections, dormers, and hip roofs where the main structure intersects with some other section of the building, these calculations become far more complex! We take all these factors into account while installing your commercial 6-inch gutters.
