Hidden gutter hangers give the installation a clean look from the ground. When using hidden gutter hangers to attach the gutter to the fascia board, it's a good idea to fasten the hangers every 2 feet. The gutter needs to have a slight slope to it, so the water will properly drain to the downpipe. A 1/4 inch for every 10 feet of gutter is sufficient.

  1. 1

    Measure and make a mark every 2 feet inside the gutter. Hook the hidden gutter hangers to the front lip of the gutter on the marks.

  2. 2

    Start the installation at the farthest end of the house from the downpipe. Use a torpedo level to get the proper slope to allow the water to drain properly. Place the torpedo level against the edge of the gutter. When the bubble is to the edge of the level line, it will give a 1/4-inch to a 1/2-inch slope to the gutter.

  3. 3

    Place a 1-inch self-tapping exterior screw through the back side of the hanger and screw through the back of the gutter into the fascia board. Continue screwing the hangers and gutter every 2 feet with the gutter at least a 1/4-inch slope for every 10 feet of gutter used.
