1. Stainless steel screws should be used @100% chromium and nickel. ( No mangnetic attraction at all.)
2. Supports are needed at 1 ft on center due to the fact heavy sand/grit comes off the shingles and stays in the gutters, and leaves and water will stand in them as well.
3. All screw holes should be drilled put above your intended high water mark.
4. Drip edge sheet metal should be behind gutters if they are already installed. I am a general contractor / home inspector--
