Gutter installation

Distance of the iron brackets 50 to 70 cm. Cut slits into the first roof batten in the with of the iron brackets, chisel out the slits to allow a flush fit of the iron brackets in the roof batten.

Align the first iron bracket with the roof stone: ⅓ of the roof stone front must extend into the gutter. Install the last iron bracket for 10 m at a slope of 2 to 3 cm.

Stretch a double guideline at the highest and lowest part of the iron bracket from the first to the last iron bracket.

Check the slope at the guideline once again, a slope of 2 to 3 cm should be planned for every 10 m of gutter.

Alight the other iron brackets on this guideline, determine the measurement for bending the individual iron brackets and mark them on the iron brackets.

The iron brackets have to be bent prior to attachment. The bending is achieved easiest with large pliers as shown in the image, or in a jaw vice.

Attach the bent iron bracket in the cut-outs to the roof batten with drywall screws or appropriate nails.

Cut the gutter with a metal saw to the required length and insert it in the iron bracket. The end piece is simply put on.

Put on the drain, determine the precise position for den drain and mark the cut-out for the water drain.

Cutting the drainage hole is quickly and cleanly done with a holesaw attachment or a fine-tooth saw.

Deburr the sawing edge and position the gutter neck over the rear edge and clip over the front bead.

The gutters are put together with a join. The correct distance of the gutter ends is derived from the marks on the join.

The join is put in over the rear edge and clamped over the front bead. Observe the marks - tongue-and-groove system!

The eaves strip offer additional protection against rainwater and fine snow particles. They are put in the groove of the gutter and nailed to the roof batten with roofing nails.

Tip: In order to be able to put in the eaves strip across the entire length of the gutter's rear edge the lugs of the iron bracket must be trimmed with tin snips!

The completed gutter forms a visually pleasant edge for the roof and protects walls and bases against humidity.

Attachment of the gutter:

In order for the Marley tongue-and-groove system to work, each gutter has to be attached in the middle. Depending on the type of attachment you are using, this will either be done with a screw that is bolted through the plastic holder in the gutter (fig. left), or by cutting the rear edge and bending the iron bracket lug in the cut-out (fig. centre and right).
